Chengdu Private Tours

Although large shopping districts and modern skylines cement Chengdu's status as an important economic center, this is a city that has never lost its small town charm.

A Chengdu tour is not complete without a visit to China’s ‘national treasure’, the giant panda, who happily hang out in the Chengdu Panda Reserve. But there is much more than pandas in Chengdu. Visit the world’s largest stone-carved Buddha who sits in nearby Leshan. Join the laid-back locals enjoying Sichuan Opera performances in local teahouses and be sure to sample Sichuan’s world-famous spicy cuisine.

For wilderness and wildlife adventures, Chengdu is also an ideal starting point. From here, travel to the aqua-crystal pools of Jiuzhaigou or into the pristine alpine forests of the Yading nature reserve.
