Know More about this tour

In the morning, your driver and English-speaking guide will pick you up from the hotel lobby in Xi'an and starts the tour with the world famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum that is known as the Eighth Wonders of the World. The museum is located 30 km east of the Xi'an City and shows a surprisingly high level in sculpture. The original site was found by four local farmers while drilling a well in 1974 and now it has turned into the most important attraction in Xi'an. The museum includes Pit 1 as the largest, Pit 2 and Pit 3 as well the exhibition hall of the chariots and horses. It is listed as the UNESCO World Heritage.

After lunch continue to visit Big wild goose pagoda built in the Tang Dynasty for keeping Buddhist Sutra and figurines of the Buddha that Master Xuanzang brought back to China from ancient India. Now the Big wild goose pagoda is surrounded by a big amusement garden and you can stroll around the North Square of Big Wild Goose Pagoda.

After the whole day tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Xi'an.

    It was a such a great tour,very educational. Our tour guide is accommodating and she explained the history very well.

    It was a very nice day trip and the Terracotta Warriors was the highlight...Jason was very friendly and my kids aged 9 & 10 were very happy with Jason and the way he explained everything. The Xi'an wall was also nice to get up to but kids could not cycle as there were height restrictions...but still...nice. The trip deserves a 5* but was thinking of giving a 4* due to the van issue (not the driver)..the van was rickety and wobbly in the back.. .. but, Jason guide was so good that I made it 5. Please spend around 20 rmb each on the whisperer device...it was very good to have taken that.

    I contacted Grace over wechat (I'm the 40yr old with some Chinese) and it was very convenient to negotiate places and get a recommendation of where to stay. I enjoy staying at hostels, and so I confirmed the ones were near enough to fit with budget. I validated most of the rest of the trip and am able to get around on subways and bus in China, but you may want full service. (we chose full service in Zhangjiajie) I hope most tourists would like to know more about how the Chinese people live, and the famous places are very well run, and are part of the story. Wendy was very professional and easy to understand. I think it was a bit ambitious to bike around the wall in only 1hr, so choose a way, go for 20min, then come back. we stopped at most of the bathrooms just because of the group. We got to meet the man who found the terracotta army! I dont think we would have had the memorable experience without having our guide. A younger group would be able to catch an early bus to huashan and see all peaks, but we were not that group. my legs were jello. very glad to have things explained before hiking. I've seen temples and pagodas and such before, but the suggestions of where to go after were different enough to be interesting. i am guessing we were a tough group to work with because we did a lot of our own planning. We stayed at a hostel (picked to to be close to recommended hotel) and chose G360 train to arrive on, and flight to zhangjiajie after. so we had lots of details to discuss with Grace, and she was very gracious. she also helped us with the zhangjiajie portion. we went in the off season. wear layers.

    I had a wonderful time with this tour! My guide Noble did a great job of showing me around, was very kind, and was very knowledgeable. I would easily recommend this tour to anyone who might be interested!

    Our guide Linda was very knowledgable about the Terracotts Warriors and other questions about China. Driver was also excellent.

  • 19-Dec-2019

    The tour was great fun and relaxing. Our tour guide, Noble and driver were awesome. He shared his knowledge of the area and and stories with us. He was also our culinary guide when he brought us to the local food stops to try the local fare. Although our Xian trip was only for 2 days, we learned a lot about this city from him. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested to know and enjoy the beauty of Xian. We will definitely take this tour again to other sites.

    It was all perfect but in the next time, please make sure to send the pick-up time in the reminder-e-Mail again. Because it can be, that the Start-Time at 8:00 am suggested that it is the new pick-up-time and for example if the pick-up Time is 9:00 am, then the vistiors think, that they have to go earlier.

    An extremely efficient and smooth process before and during the trip. We've received very efficient and fast replies from Sophia Liu when querying about this trip which was a very good start to our trip. We have an English speaking tour guide and a driver that attended to us during our trip and they were always punctual. The guide, Noble, is a very calm and knowledgeable young man, which suits our need for a chill and leisure trip perfectly as we have an elderly family member with us. The driver, Mr Tong, is very warm and friendly and both of them indeed made our trip better. Highly recommend China Xian Tour for its high efficiency and reliability.
