    The organization of the day trip to Terracotta Army was amazing. Everything worked out fine and there was no confusion. Our guide Tracy offered excellent work throughout the trip and recommended many delicious snacks to me. Xi’an is a wonderful tourism destination and I will definitely return here in the future.

    The day trip to Terracotta Army gave me a wonderful experience. The airport pick-up service was very convenient and punctual. Lily, our guide was very patient and introduced the Terracotta Army in detail. I’d like to highly recommend fantastic Terracotta Amy to anyone who is going to visit China. You cannot miss it!

    We went to see the Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses last year. The 3 pits were so large, arranging life-size pottery soldiers with vivid expressions. It was definitely a must-see, extremely amazing! The one-day Terracotta Warriors tour from Beijing was worth trying and we also booked a 4-days Xi’an tour, also satisfying!

    Terracotta Army is indeed a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The pottery warriors were so life-like and each of them had a unique facial expression. With a detailed explanation, we learned a lot of information about the construction process of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses. The most amazing would be the Bronze Chariots and Horses. All of these showed the wisdom of ancient Chinese people. Here I would like to express my special thanks to our professional guide for her excellent introductions. An outstanding guide is very important for a trip! As one of the most famous sites in Xi’an, you have to be there to feel its wonder. All in all, we had an amazing Terracotta Warriors tour from Beijing last November! ... More

    Our Terracotta Warriors trip was a good deal. It was worth it, although it limited some freedom. With the guide’s careful explanation, the short sightseeing was perfect. One thing I was very satisfied with was that our guide was very responsible. No shopping stop during the whole trip, great!

    Even in the Chinese winter, there were still many tourists seeing the Terracotta Warriors. Those clay soldiers looked rather magnificent and the 3 hours spent in visiting it was rewarding! The 2-day Terracotta Warriors tour from Beijing also included other interesting attractions such as the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda and City Wall. Both two places were visited by fewer tourists. With warm sunshine, cycling on the City Wall was also enjoyable!

    Of course we were very joyful with this trip! Xi’an was a city which leaves a deep impression on visitors. The cultural and historical significance and the abundant relics help Xi’an enjoy the first on the Chinese six greatest ancient capitals and equal honor with Athens, Cairo, and Rome as one of the four greatest ancient cities!

    Our one day Terracotta Warriors tour from Beijing had a happy ending! The Terracotta Army was quite stunning and the Pit 2 was the most spectacular one with chariots and cavalrymen. All the pottery soldiers were arranged in an orderly array with magnificent momentum. I suggest you visit it in winter when there are relatively few tourists.

    The 3 day Terracotta Warriors tour from Beijing is cool! The guide Lily was quite flexible to adjust our schedule to the unexpected. She was really nice to share lots of detailed and interesting facts with us. The explanations of the Terracotta Warriors were very professional and we learned more about Qin Shi Huang. Our day 2 trip to the City Wall was impressive. Riding a bicycle on the City Wall was the best experience in my Xi’an tour! The Shaanxi History Museum was worth visiting. A large number of precious cultural relics provided a feast for us! Plus, suggest you guys definitely taste the Yangrou Paomo on Muslim Food Street. Very mellow and delicious!

    TravelChinaGuide is extremely remarkable and I have already recommended the travel company to anyone who may be planning a China trip.
