    Not sure how I feel about this one. The tour doesn't include any of the admissions, so expect to spend another 60 - 100 for a group of 3. You are basically getting transportation and a guide and for that, you are spending a lot. Well overpriced. You can get super cheap transport out to the terracotta warriors without much effort.

    That said, the guide was very good and nice. He helped us purchase our tickets. He did have information about the site and he english was good. He also made suggestions for other things we could do while in Xi'an.

    We had a good time. The terracotta warriors themselves were very neat. We then visited the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda and treated to a separate tour and private calligraphy demonstration. That was neat. But it's probably twice what it should cost.

    So I don't know. We enjoyed it. Paid a bit for it. But I can see where an extra couple 100 may be worth the guide and the lack of hassle. It was hassle-free.

    Michaela was a great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about the sites that we visited. We chose to start at the Big Goose Pagoda in Xi'an, followed by the terra cotta warriors and finished with a walk on the city walls. It is important to note that you get nothing except your driver and tour guide with the price of this tour. You will be expected to pay entry fees at all of the sites.

    We were taken to an obvious tourist trap restaurant for lunch. We ordered a few items and felt pressured to order more dishes. We wound up paying for our guides lunch she went to the bathroom when the bill arrived and the entire meal cost more than we spent on food for the entire time we were in Xi'an 4 days!. I would have rather eaten street food from the vendors outside, than have the sit down meal in the restaurant

    We felt rushed around at both the pagoda and terra cotta warriors. I wanted to stay and take photos at the pagoda, but felt like we were constantly chasing after our guide. When we finished our day at the wall, we said goodbye to our guide and told her that we would walk home. This took her by surprise, as she was expecting to take us to dinner and drop us off at our hotel. Since we didn't want to spend another 50 on dinner, we passed and enjoyed a slow and quiet walk around the city wall.

    Most amazing trip. It was much more than we imagined and that was thanks to our guide Jerry , who went beyond his time and made it the most memorable part of our China trip . He suggested the Tang Dynasty show and even helped organise our trip back from the hotel to the airport. love to visit again

    Victoria was a very good guide and was mindful of my sore knee. We had an opportunity to see the amazing Terracotta Warrior Museum, Banpo Site Museum and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Enjoyed the day and was very glad to have Victoria there to translate, interpret and provide commentary.
