    I had a great time with Lance getting to see the pandas, be sure to find the cute little red ones. We then had lunch at a temple, checked out the local market, and went back to the Chilli Cool to cook an amazing meal. The cooking portion was great and easy to follow the steps.

    My wife and I did the one day panda + cooking class. The panda base is meant to be pretty easy to get to yourself but for not much more money you have a guide to show you around, answer questions, and take you through a great route of the park instead of constantly checking the

    Hi, Dear Obaas. We are so grateful you write this sincere review to us and we're really sorry for the conveniences and deficiencies of this tour that may cause you some discomforts. We don't mean to make you feel that way on purpose.Thank you for booking the tour and spend the day with our tour guide. Thank you for letting other 2 people join your private tour as well. This whole day tour include a lot of expenditures. Our Cooking Class is hosting in an authentic local Chinese restaurant and the chef is a professional chef who has been working in this restaurant for a long time, he has the simple way to teach people how to cook the typical Sichuan dishes . It might not be a big challenge for people who cook a lot at home , but it is the real way to cook good Sichuan Food , and we also offer some high level cooking class, such as Dan Dan Noodles, even Hot-Pot Cooking Class for people who want to learn the fabulous dishes. We are really appreciate it that you give us the useful suggestions both in the panda and the cooking parts. Thanks for your kindly advice and it will help us a lot to do a better job. Hope you can visit China again to witness the transformation,the better us. Hope your day is going great! Best regards! Chilli Cool China
