Private Half-Day Chengdu Panda Breeding Center Tour with Optional Panda Feeding

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Depart from your Chengdu hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and enjoy the scenic surroundings on the way to either Dujiangyan Giant Panda Center or Chengdu Panda breeding Center. Greet your expert guide at one of the non-profit research and breeding facilities and embark on a guided tour of your selected center. 

    Gain fascinating insight into the progression of baby pandas to adult pandas and admire the delicate newborns in a special infant panda area. Continue to enrich your knowledge of the majestic mammals by observing adolescent pandas between the age of one and five; listen to the importance of this vital maturity period and capture photographs of these enchanting and endangered creatures as they relax in their natural environment. 

    Scour the trees for vibrant red pandas as your tour comes to a conclusion and then climb aboard your comfortable vehicle for the return journey back to your Chengdu hotel. 

    Upgrade to hold a baby giant panda:

    Make your experience even more memorable by upgrading to hold a baby giant panda. Get your photograph taken as you hold an adorable six-month to one-year-old panda in an intimate environment. The money raised by upgrading is donated to the non-profit center to continue vital research into the endangered species. 

    Please note: Depending on the condition of the animals or the season of the year, there may be some situations where the facility is unable to guarantee panda holding for your tour date. This is to ensure the pandas remain in a calm and soothing environment. If you are unable to hold a baby panda, prior notice and a full refund is guaranteed.

    Great tour. Holly my guide spoke great English - was very surprised that she hadn't spent time overseas considering her level. She also managed to push us through the crowds to get into the park quicker. As a foreigner (and a queue-loving Brit), I'd have felt less comfortable
