  • Chengdu City Culture tour
    Spend the morning exploring a beautiful park as the locals perform their daily Taichi all around you. Pick up some Taichi for yourself, with the help of a martial arts master instructor. Learn about the philosophies of Taoism and Fengshui (Superstitious Wind and Water), and come away with a deeper understanding of the local way of life. Chengdu is the home of the Sichuan Opera, which has been performing since the 1700s. Get a once in a lifetime backstage experience as you watch them prepare their elaborate costumes and makeup. Join the locals in the audience for tea, snacks and incredible performance. No trip to Chengdu would be complete without a visit to its renowned antique market, the perfect opportunity to find a unique keepsake or support local artisans. Sample some local delicacies to learn more of Chengdu’s rich food scene, then head to a local teahouse to relax and learn more about tea culture. If you’re feeling lucky, learn more about Mahjong, then join a game. Don’t feel bad if you don’t do it well at first; it is one of Chengdu’s most popular games!

Frequently asked questions

How can I pay for my tour?
TourRadar accepts payment via credit card including Visa, Mastercard, Amex (American Express), Maestro and Paypal. Your credit card details can be edited as needed by logging into your TourRadar account for any future instalments or payments on your booking.

How will I know when my booking request is confirmed?
While many tour bookings on TourRadar offer instant booking confirmation, some need to be approved manually by the operator of your tour. You will receive an email once your booking has been confirmed, or you can always check your booking status by logging onto your TourRadar account. Your payment is only deducted from your credit card once the tour operator confirms your place on the tour, at which point you'll receive a booking invoice.

How will my final payment be taken?
After paying your deposit, the final balance of payment will be automatically charged to your Credit Card on the due date. This payment is usually charged 30-60 days prior to your tour departure date. This varies depending on the tour you book so please check your invoice or your TourRadar Messenger page for the due date.

How does TourRadar charge me?
If your booking request does not offer instant confirmation, your initial payment at the time of booking is pre-authorised on your credit card. Only upon booking confirmation will the transaction be processed and your payment collected. In the rare case, your booking request cannot be confirmed, the pre-authorised funds are returned to your card. Please note in instances where a tour is 'On Request' this process may vary.

What happens if my place is not confirmed on the tour?
If, in the rare case your booking request is declined by the tour operator, your pre-authorised payment is released back to your credit card and no charges are made. Alternatively, our Travel Experts are available 24/7 to help you explore alternative options for your vacation.

Can I make payment by instalments?
Yes you can! TourRadar provides a free flexible payment option for you to pay by instalments. This means that once you have made your initial deposit payment and your booking has been confirmed, you can apply payments to your booking whenever it suits you. If there is any remaining balance on the final payment due date, it will be automatically deducted from your default Credit Card on that date.
