The best tour guide anywhere! Helen of China Highlights was by far the most knowledgeable guide in China. She coordinated my group with ease and perfection. If you plan on visiting Chengdu, Helen is the one to ask for!!!

This is probably the best place in the world to see giant pandas. It is extremely clean, well organized with signs in English and Chinese. With over 100 pandas you can see them from babies to full adults!
