    I ended up with a private tour with Roger, who was great. So happy I did not try this on my own. The soldiers are the 8th wonder of the world, amazing. Very crowded with people everywhere and my guide knew all the best spots for photos. Roger spoke English very well and had lots of history and interesting information. He had a excellent suggestion for lunch and the flow was smooth. The driver was also excellent and did a great job avoiding an accident when a bicycle flew into our path.

    Well organised tour showing the essential highlights of the city. Tracey was informative about all the sites and gave us plenty of time to explore it at our own pace.

    One of the main reasons for visitng China was to see the Terracotta Warriors. We were only due to be in Xi`an for one whole day. Unfortunately the night before our visit, my husband became really unwell with such a bad stomach upset that he was too weak to walk. Our guide was wonderful. She initially took us to a pharmacy where we purchased medication. She then arranged a salted drink when we arrived at the site of the Terracotta Warriors and a guy with a wheelchair so that my husband wouldnt miss the tour. The tour was wonderful. Carol is both caring and so knowledgable. She also made it really interesting without being overloaded with information. It was a great trip and one that we will remember for a long time. If we had been booked on a large group tour I suspect we would have had to miss the tour altogether. Thanks so much Carol!

    Tour was perfectly organised. Tracy's English is very good and she knows a lot about Chinese history and the places we visited and she was very friendly and flexible. We highly recommend to ride a bike on the city wall of Xi'an and to walk through the muslim quarter.

    What an amazing day! Full of culture and allot of history! Tracey, our guide took us to see the Terracotta Warriors. She is very knowledgeable and very passionate. We then explored the City Wall. I loved everything about this tour! The Small Pagoda was also special! Thanks Tracey! I will see you in the future again!

    Did a full day tour with Judy. She was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. We toured the terrace cotta warriors, had lunch, toured the wall and a museum. We had a wonderful day.

    We had a fun day in Xi'an on June 6 with Lily, our tour guide. On our way to Terracotta Warriors display, Lily enthusiastically shared Xi'an's rich history with us "Xi'an city is a Living Museum" - wherever you dig in Xi'an, there is history to be found. Lily's knowledge about Xi'an's place in China history is vast and made us very familiar with the city. IAs we entered Terracotta Warriors display - it is very easy to get distracted by the crowds and the seemingly sameness of the warriors. But, she knew exactly where to stop - telling us what to look for in each pit (we visited all 3 pits). With Lily as our guide, we came back from our Terracotta Warrior visit with a much greater appreciation (hey, I almost qualified to be a guide myself). My wife, and our daughter also appreciated Lily's easy-going style, her English-speaking and communicative skills. We also did the tea sampling at the food court - located near Pit # 3. We also visited Big Wild Goose Pagoda - what a peaceful place and again, Lily told us the history where to take a perfect picture with the Pagoda in the background, the difference between the bell tower and drum tower - making our visit so much more meaningful. Lily went an extra mile to take us to a quick City wall visit as there was a short time left before our overnight train journey to Beijing, making sure we were seated in the right compartment (again, getting tickets from the right counter, waiting in the right platform - all would have been daunting with our lack of Mandarin speaking skills). Thank You Travel China Guide Tours and Lily and the driver (sorry to forget his name) for making our day in Xi'an so so Perfect.

    Our tour was effort less, easy to navigate, and Susan our tour guide was incredible! This company takes care of it all! They delivered our train tickets to our hotel in Beijing, then picked us up at our hotel in Xa'in, and proceeded to drop us back off at the end of the day to head back to Beijing. They were kind, easy to work with, and priced very fairly. Susan was just the best, we all fell in love with her and wished we could have taken here throughout China with us!

    We packed what seemed like a couple days of activities into one day with Roger, which worked nicely for our group of two. We got to see the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and surrounding structures, biked the City Wall (huge highlight and only 45 yuan each bike), and explored the Terracotta Army. Roger is EXTREMELY knowledgeable and this came in SUPER handy at the Terracotta Warriors. I learned so much more than I did visiting the exhibition on tour! I'm not sure how Roger can so easily sum up all the history, the numerous Dynasties, and Xi'an's emporers, but he did, and I leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation of Xi'an than I came with. This was an amazing day and Roger is a walking encyclopedia.

    We had a great time with our guide Roger! We were able to visit the Pagoda, city wall, and Terra-Cotta museum. Roger was so knowledgeable on the history and culture of these sights. We especially loved the Terra-Cotta museum! It was an incredible visit
