A Recent Review of this tour

Victor is an exceptional guide - professional, knowledgeable, passionate and energetic. The tour was flexible and we were able to go at our own pace. Apart from the panda base, we wanted somewhere closer to Chengdu, and Victor recommended the Sanxingdui Museum, which included captivating artefacts from ancient China. Overall, a great and memorable experience. Thank you Victor!
