Tour Highlights
Terracotta Army Museum
The Terracotta Army is a burial object to guard the mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor in ancient China. There are 3 pits and 1 exhibition hall in the museum, with more than 8,000 pottery soldiers, horses, and chariots in total. Pit 1 is the largest which contains at least 6,000 terracotta figures and horses and is the main body of the army. Pit 2 is the most spectacular one with various military divisions, formed by four mixed squares consisting of chariots, cavalrymen and crossbowmen. Pit 3 is the headquarters with pottery guards standing on both sides of the passageway. The Bronze Chariots and Horses Exhibition Hall displays two bronze chariots which are 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 in each direction of the wall - Changle Gate (East Gate), Yongning Gate (South Gate), Anding Gate (West Gate) and Anyuan Gate (North Gate) as well as many 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 the soldiers to shoot enemies from the side.

    If you go to Xi'an in summer, you must do a good job of preventing summer heat and prepare enough water all the journey. And then…I was most grateful to the travel guide for this trip. He helped me find the lost necklace. I really appreciate it. Thanks a million!

    I spent a wonderful Xi’an day tour with TravelChinaGuide. We visited the Terracotta Army, City Wall and Small Wild Goose Pagoda. They were truly wonderful. Koko was a professional guide who ensured that we made the best use of our time while we were with her. We thought the journey was an excellent value. Thumb up!

    I felt that the time spent on the Terracotta Warriors Day Tour went by so fast. I had a wonderful visit to Terracotta Warriors and City Wall in every aspect. We barely waited in line and had enough time to enjoy and take photos. Our guide Koko was a great English speaker and her hard work and expertise impressed me. I would contact your company to organize another China tour in the future.
