Tour Highlights
Terracotta Army
The Terracotta Army is a burial object for Qin Shi Huang, the first feudal emperor in ancient China. It is composed of three pits with more than 8,000 pottery soldiers, horses, and chariots in total. Pit 1 is the biggest and contains at least 6,000 terracotta figures. Pit 2 is the most spectacular one for the variety of divisions, formed by four mixed squares consisting of chariots, cavalrymen and crossbowmen. Besides, Pit 3 is also the headquarters with pottery guards standing on both sides of the passageway. The Museum of Bronze Chariots and Horses displays two bronze chariots half the size of the real ones. The first chariot is used to clear the way and guard the emperor, while the second one was made after the carriage for emperors.

City Wall
The City Wall with a length of 13.74 kilometers (8.54 miles) is the largest and best-preserved ancient wall in China. The large-scale renovation work was implemented during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). There are four major gates along the wall - Changle Gate, Yongning Gate, Anding Gate and Anyuan Gate as well as watchtowers, turrets, gate towers, and sluice gate towers. Every 120 meters (130 yards), you can see a part of ramparts stretching out from the wall, which was for soldiers to shoot enemies from the side.

    I was satisfied with the excellent Beijing to Xi’an Day tour for a high level of service and cost-effectiveness. Our guide Carol was also very outstanding. But it was a pity that the sudden heavy rain prevented us from cycling on the City Wall.

    This Xi’an day tour to Terracotta Warriors Army really didn't let me down. The guide Waldner was impressively knowledgeable, giving an interesting introduction of the famous attractions. Terracotta Warriors and Horses were really amazing! Quite pleased with the journey and the thoughtful service! In spite of the unfavorable weather, we had a wonderful day!! I’d like to have a trip with my friends if possible!!

    I booked a Xi'an day tour in winter. There were not many visitors in scenic spots, but the scenery was beautiful. Terracotta Warriors and Horses can be regarded as a miracle on earth, which left a deep impression on me. The tour guide was also humorous, responsible and cordial. Fairly a good trip! I recommend it highly for anyone interested in Xi'an!
