Amazing Panda Keeper Day!

Our family of six with ages ranging from 23 to 76 had an absolutely brilliant day as panda keeper volunteers with our lovely guide Daisy. It was amazing to see these beautiful pandas up close and to help clean the enclosures and prepare bamboo and panda cakes for them! We even came home with our own panda keeper t-shirts to remind us of such a great day. Would definitely recommend to anyone in Chengdu , thank you Daisy from Chinahighlihgts!

Itinerary Quick Look

Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.

DAY 1 Beijing to the Great Wall | Mutianyu by Day and Simatai by Night

According to your prearranged schedule, your private guide will meet you in your hotel lobby. A comfortable vehicle will be ready for your 2-day Great Wall tour.

It takes about 2 hours to get from Beijing to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. Have a round-trip cable car ride for ascending and descending the wall. You will be free to explore the wall easily on your own, after your guide has offered some introductory explanations.

Enjoy a delicious lunch at our selected local restaurant. After lunch, make a 2-hour transfer to Gubei Water Town. Check-in to your hotel and have some rest.

Your guide will accompany you on the cable car up to the Simatai Great Wall to see the sunset. As dark ensues, the wall lights up and you can enjoy the dreamy night views.

DAY 2 Return to Beijing | Chinese Cultural Experience and Photographs in Gubei Water Town

Enjoy the traditional Beijing courtyard architecture of Gubei Water Town. Your guide will be happy to show you the best places in the town, which highlight its authentic Chinese style. You can take the classiest pictures there.

Afterward, we'd be happy to arrange one of three cultural experiences in Gubei Water Town: tie-dyeing, kite making, or Buddhist text tracing. Try a Chinese cultural experience to make your own unique souvenir.

The tour will end after lunch. Your guide will accompany you back to Beijing city. If you will leave Beijing during the same day, it is better to choose a flight that departs after 5 pm. We are happy to arrange an airport or train station transfer for your departure after the tour.
