    I would highly praise our guide Koko on the Xi’an day tour. She was very responsive and took good care of every tourist in our group. With rich knowledge about those spots, she explained them very detailedly and excellently. So lucky to meet such a great tour guide. We will choose her again if we have another chance to Xi’an.

    Very thankful for our guide Koko who was considerate and thoughtful. Although it was rainy, she tried her best to serve us and arrange every detail reasonably. We had a good time! (Tip: The meals in restaurants were so large that we wasted much. So I thought to eat smaller, more frequent meals would be suitable.)

    This Xi’an tour to Terracotta Army really shocked me. Those splendid terracotta warriors and horses in this museum were excavated with pottery, very vivid! They were made 2,200 years ago and well preserved. Really a great historical wonder! Besides, our guide provided comprehensive and thoughtful service and we all felt at home. In general, it was a good tour worth joining.

    Great day trip in Xian with Tracy
    Before going to Xian, China for a 2-weeks business trip, I checked Trip Advisor for recommendations about Xian attractions' weekend tours. Of course I wanted to visit Terracotta warriors but also looked for other local highlights. Luckily I found Travel China Guide and Tracy, our wonderful tour guide. Today, after the tour is over, I can definitely say that it was a great choise. Tracy's extensive knowledge of Chinese history, her very good English and charming personality made this tour unforgettable! ... More

    This day-trip tour of the Terracotta Warriors from centurys ago was an experience of a lifetime. I learnt a lot and had a great time because the tour guide Lily explained the history behind such monumental construction by hand from people at that time. Almost like walking back in time. Lunch was delicious, Thanks to Lily for such wonderful experience.
