Good to Know

  • Appointing pickup time: Your guide will contact you the night before the tour or leave you a message to appoint the pick-up time.
  • Be subject to change: The Panda Keeper Program is totally dependent on the arrangement of Dujiangyan Panda Valley and is subject to change without notice. We cannot assure the activities listed above will all be provided, but we will try our best to make your day special.
  • Donation fee for holding panda: In China, holding a panda is now only available in Dujiangyan Panda Valley. It is also a donation activity. The Panda Keeper Program fee does not include this donation activity which allows you to take photos with a panda when holding it. You can hold it for about one minute. If you want to hold a panda, you should tell your travel advisor when you book this tour because you have to apply for this activity at least one week in advance and there is a daily quota of only 20 volunteers. Please take enough RMB cash, as credit cards are not accepted there.
  • Limited dish choice: Dish choice in the local restaurant is limited, but we will arrange the best they have.

Volunteer Restrictions

  • 12 to 65 years old volunteers are allowed to take part in the program.
  • If your children are between 2 to 11 years old, you can still take them to the panda valley. You just have to pay their valley’s entrance tickets and electromobile fee. Your guide will help to take care of your children, when you are in the program.
  • You can take the children under 2 years old to join in the program without extra tour cost.
