Highlight of our trip
This tour was amazing. Our guide Winter took us to the old town of Chengdu to see the local market. The photos we made there were just awesome, so was the experience and the guidesness. Winter is a wonderful guide, fluid in English and excellent in explaining local traditions and China’s culture. We tried all sorts of food there from local vendors: fresh spring rolls, rice wine, deliscious noodlles and even participated in rolling Chinese dumplings. At the market we saw so many Chinese specialities- the snake fish, frogs, different Sechuan spices, century eggs, sesame paste and so much more. Winter also herpes us choose a good and reasonably priced green tea at the local vendor. After the market we visited the Monastery and had lunch at the nunnary, which was also an amazing experience. And at the end we went to a local tea house and enjoyed the best green tea while watching the locals and listening to Winter explaining how to drink tea correctly. I would highly recommend this tour, definately an experience I will never forget.

Walking tour in Chengdu- excellent!
We started at a local food market and learned a lot about local specialities. Then we visited a nunnery and participated in the lunch ceremony. The tour ended in a local tea house.
I would highly recommend doing a tour with Winter, he gives you lots of interesting and fun facts!

Ask for ocean !!!!
We had an amazing day with ocean. The market tour was really nice and interesting and the lunch was great and a very interesting experience.
The best part of our day buy far was our AMAZING guide - ocean. She has the best English we met in china, her guidance was interesting and very well directed to our interests and she is a great person to sit around and chat with.
Even though we made a booking mistake and booked the day before we intended- ocean didn't do us any trouble or even mention it.
Well worth the money.
Very very recommended.
Don't forget to ask for ocean (:

Great time
We are a group of three people from Thailand. We all agree this was the highlight of our Chengdu trip as we got to experience so much local culture. The local market, which was hidden from the main streets, was full of interesting things to see. The lunch in a nunnery canteen was cool. We loved watching people there.

Our guide Winter is knowledgeable and showed us many things we would have missed if we went there by ourselves. He speaks good English and, surprisingly, Thai as well! We had a great time with him.

Unique and Cultural Experience
Nov 2017 • Couples
We have been living in Southern China and we are usually very wary of organized tours in China because they are often overly touristic, but this was not the case here! We loved our guide Ocean. She is smart, funny, and insightful. Her English is also really good. Her tour through the market was really interesting, even for someone who has already seen a ton of Chinese markets. Going through them with Ocean was really interesting, she explained and pointed out interesting foods and explains how they are made. The lunch at the nunnery was the most interesting experience. It is clearly not something done for tourists, as its you, the nuns, and a bunch of locals. it's a really authentic, local, experience. The tour is great for vegetarians, and, even for those with other allergies. I can't eat gluten, and Ocean was very helpful in identifying food that I could eat (there was more than I thought!) I didn't expect to eat at all and I was a bit unsure of how the tour would be if I couldn't eat, but she was so helpful. When making spring rolls at a local stall she had the woman put a bunch of vegetables and some sauces in a plastic bag for me to eat instead of wrapping it in the wheat wrapper. We couldn't have imagined a better tour. The tea was also a highlight! It's hard to even pick the best part! Highly Recomend it!
