    The luxury air-condition car provided with us great convenience on our Xi’an group day tour. It was so nice to avoid the queue line at the entrance of all the attractions, which saved us a lot of time. The fast food restaurant nearby the Terracotta Warriors was not excellent but quite hygienic, much better than the tourist food we had in past tours. All the sites were classic and the tour route was very economical, worth a try!

    I had great fun on my Xi’an group day tour to Terracotta Army. We had 5 members in our group and we all got along well with each other. I went for the fame of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses and indeed the pottery warriors were majestic and surprised by the exquisite workmanship of the ancient Chinese people. I really love the riding on the City Wall, and through the detailed introductions I felt the unique charms of the ancient Xi’an deeply. On this day tour, the only thing I regretted was that it rained when I visited Muslim Street in the afternoon, and there were a lot of people strolling, so I had an imperfect experience. But the local snacks were really delicious and worth a try! ... More

    The Small Wild Goose Pagoda was relatively peaceful and we all enjoyed the tranquil ambience extremely. You guys must try the Xi’an snacks on Muslim Quarter. We tasted various foods and the Crumbled Unleavened Bread in Mutton Stew and steamed stuffed bun were my favorites.

    All in all, the Xi’an Xi’an group day tour to Terracotta Army was full of fun and we were pleased with the amazing service by Travel China Guide!
