Know More about this tour

This full-day guided tour of Xian begins with a visit to the Shaanxi history museum for a cultural and historical overview of the province, dating back to the great Emperor Qing.

Travel to the Big wild goose pagoda, a Buddhist temple built in 652 during the Tang Dynasty, which served as a holding place for religious texts and holy figurines that were brought to China from India. Afterwards, enjoy a delicious Chinese lunch before visiting one of the oldest existing Chinese city walls. The walls form a circumference of nearly 9 miles (14km), and each side has a gateway beyond which stand three massive towers. Learn about how the corners of the wall feature a watchtower that was used for defense against intruders.

Continue your sightseeing tour to the Great Mosque. First constructed in the Tang Dynasty, the mosque adheres to traditional Chinese architectural style, and its grounds were expanded in the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties to include extensive pavilions, platforms and halls.

After your full-day guided tour, sit back, relax and enjoy a comfortable drive back to your hotel.

    While I don't think that this tour is needed to see Xi'an this tour provided a quick overview for anyone who wants to see the city. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable and makes getting around easy if you don't speak Chinese.

    good day tour of xian. if you are in xian and have some time apart from terra cotta army, you can take this your to visit prominent sites in xian. the museum was really good and with guide it becomes even better. the pagoda has rich cultural heritage. the mosque is another important site in xian. followed by the ride on the city wall through the southern gate. after the tour you would definitely realise that the day was went spent.

    The tour to the history museum was extremely informative. My guide, Lily, was very patient in explaining the history of ancient China. I was the only one on the tour so it was a one-to-one tour. The visits to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and Ancient City Wall were equally amazing! I opted to take a bicycle ride on the city wall. Highly recommend this tour as the locations of the museum and pagoda are outside the city wall.

    Having taken several of these historical tours, one's experience depends on the tour guide you get. For this particular tour, I got Lily who was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. She seemed to know her history well and gave me a lot of information as we walked through the Shaanxi History Museum...an absolute MUST SEE on any Xian itinerary. Also enjoyed the Wild Goose Pagoda and the fancy Tang Dynasty buffet. I would highly recommend this tour. Just excellent stuff if you enjoy history and good sumptuous food. Thank you, Lily

    Amazing tour ! Our tour guide Lucia was so knowledgeable and her English was perfect. We didn't know too much about Xi'an except that it is home to the Terracotta army, but after the tour we knew so much more. Xi'an is a city in China we won't mind visiting again.

    Lots of walking and stairs so I recommend you be in good shape. When you visit the Museum be prepared for large, somewhat inconsiderate and occasionally downright rude crowds Welcome to cattle hearding. The Pagoda is a marvel as are all the out buildings with lots of wonderful history and architecture. The Wall is amazing not only in its construction, but history with lots of walking, stairs and terrific views. Do not recommend visiting the Muslim district as tourist traps abound as does a feeling of insecurity.

    Excellent tour, my guide was very knowledgeable, his English skills were perfect. He was so helpful at all times. I was the only person taking the tour, was more a one on one experience. I really enjoyed my tour around this beautiful city.

    Lilyliu was fantastic! She is a knowledge guide and made all the difference. In such a busy day during Chinese New Year, I was able to see it all and have fun! Thank you.

    We booked this tour through Han Tang International Travel Services and as compensation for the poor service we received on another tour Dumpling Banquet and Tang Show, they included a free visit to Muslim Street which was very interesting and enjoyable.

    We enjoyed the museum, pagoda and city wall, but the lunch was terrible. We were taken to a restaurant in a dilapidated hotel. The restaurant was empty except for us and our guide and driver, who sat at another table.

    The table cloth had holes in it and we were told it was a 'hot pot' and given a variety of fatty meat, cabbage, eggs and told we could cook our own meal in the pot. We struggled and the meal was awful. We don't go on holidays to cook our own food, especially when we were charged a lot of money for this tour - it was not good value for money.

    We would not use, or recommend this tour company.
