    The Xi’an day tour organized by TravelChinaGuide was a good experience for us. The breathtaking Terracotta Army and City Wall had all exceeded my expectations. Our guide Lily was very responsible and attentive to our wants and needs. We had a wonderful lunch at a wonderful restaurant recommended by our Lily according to our preferences. There are too many things to find and experience in Xi’an and I will take a deep visit to Xi’an in the future.

    I spent a fulfilling and enjoyable Xi’an day tour with TCG and I’d like to express my gratitude to their excellent organization and services. Our guide Lily spoke good English and she was very friendly and polite. It was very easy to understand what she said when she introduced the Terracotta Army, Banpo Musume and Muslim Quarter to us. Besides, I got a great deal of knowledge about Chinses history and artworks. The Muslim Quarter was truly a food paradise and so many restaurants and stalls offered a great wide choice of delicious food. ... More

    Koko was a lovely guide who had rich professional knowledge and a superb service attitude. We visited Mt. Huashan and I wanted to highly recommend it. It was dangerous and impressive enough. Our guide Tracy was very thoughtful and called attention to safety when we climbed steep steps and kept energetic and helpful all the time. An unforgettable Xi’an day tour! I would use your company again to arrange my next China tour.

    Thank our guide Phoebe for her professional explanations and outstanding service. It was a great one-day Xian’an tour and we felt glad to have a glimpse of the profound Chinses history at the Forest Steles Museum and Shaanxi History Museum. Also, we visited the City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, and a local family. The hostess of the local family made many delicious dishes.

    Before departure, the guide prepared a small box containing glasses cloth, thermometers, masks, bandages and some medicines. She was so thoughtful! Quite a pleasant trip and it left a deep memory for me!

    Many thanks to our guide Koko who was very enthusiastic and professional. With fluent English, She explained the culture and history of Xi’an very detailedly. We also learned some interesting stories about those spots. Her enthusiasm did not decrease even if we came across a rainy day. So lucky to meet a dedicated guide.

    The Xi’an day tour was satisfying. All highlights were visited such as Terracotta Army, Small Wild Goose Pagoda, and City Wall. They were representative spots of this ancient city, with a long history and deep cultural deposits. Our guide Lily was responsible and professional. She also introduced other places worth visiting and reminded us of some attention matters. One pity was that it was a rainy day. Overall, it was a good tour and I would choose TCG again.

    We really enjoyed our time in Xi'an. The tour guide, Celine, was patient, friendly, helpful, informative and took good care of us, especially our little daughter.
    It was certainly worth a visit to the Terracotta Warriors Museum, the ancient City Wall and Muslim Quarter. They also arranged for us for having lunch in Muslim restaurant. We would recommend this tour to our friends, thank you!
