I took a combined Panda Base and Sichuan Cuisine Museum tour, this day was the highlight of my two week vacation in China. Daniel is a super friendly and helpful guy. He has lots of interesting things to share about the history and culture of this corner of China. He'll answer any questions you have, and even provide pointers for traveling in China that are not related to the tour. I believe that having Daniel arrange everything made the day turn out far better and more fun than a DIY equivalent.
