Great day out .for people wanting to do more with the pandas and away from the busy local parks. A touch expensive but it’s a one off trip. The guide was amazing her English was superb, her general knowledge about China was great. This trip is for individuals, couples or families.

Picked up from hotel by guide Andy and spent a great day with him at the Wolong Panda Research Base as "volunteer" Panda keepers. Was able to clean the Panda enclosures, prepare their Panda Bread and feed them by hand up close. Lots of opportunities to observe them in the preserve as well. Included a delicious lunch with the other Panda keepers. A most memorable experience that we will never forget. The tour organized by Alvin through MyPanda Tours is highly recommended. Well-organized, planned and executed.

Visiting the Panda Base at Dujiangyan was the highlight of our 2 week visit to China. Seeing this beautiful animals so close its a fascinating experience. By volunteering for a day you become a part of a global effort to to save this endangered species. But most important is a proof that if humanity wants, it can be done!

I was traveling alone when I signed up this trip and I was a bit of worried before the trip! Yet it turned out to be a fantastic trip. Thanks to Alvin, he was one of the best private tour guides with passion and detail oriented! Very knowledgeable on Pandas! Alvin 服務很棒、既熱心又有服務熱忱,解說也很詳盡喔!

This is a great way to see the Pandas and how they live behind the scenes. I would skip the panda holding, but the panda feeding is pretty amazing. This comes with a driver, and in my case an amazing guide. Thanks Alex Xia!

This was a really great experience. It's almost a day long but not at all strenuous and you get to do quite a few things - clean the panda enclosures, feed them, help prepare food for them including smashing bamboos, interact with the staff at the base who are really friendly, and watch a video on the panda conservation along with good food. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing and learned a lot about these beautiful and cute animals. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. My day started with Alvin picking me up at the hotel. I had planned this trip alone and was joined by one more of his guest. He is an amazing guide to have, very knowledgeable and personable, extremely passionate about pandas and a great host and storyteller. He made our 1.5-hour ride to the base feel like 15 min. He also took us to the best Wonton place in town. Thank you and a loud shout to Alvin and the entire staff at Dujiangyan Panda Base on their efforts for this noble cause
