    It was not easy to finish this Xi’an day trip as I was sick. The long bus ride from the hotel to the Famen Temple and Qianling Mausoleum made me feel a little uncomfortable. But I felt so warm for our guide’s concern and buying medicine for me. Thank you very much!

    Our guide Carol served us with an excellent attitude and had a great scene of humor. She also possessed excellent humanistic qualities. Her well-planned organization made us feel very comfortable. Her control of time at each scenic spot was just right. We visited the Terracotta Army, Small Wild Goose Pagoda, Xi’an Museum, and City Wall on this Xi’an day trip. We barely waited in line and all the attractions were worth the cost. But we failed to cycle on the City Wall due to the rainy day. It was a great pity! ... More

    It was a sunny day and we had a happy time! We visited the Terracotta Army, the Small Wild Goose Pagoda and the City Wall. It was so remarkable about the magnificence of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses. It was the ancient Chinese wisdom of the people and the masterpiece of Chinese culture.

    We are home now with a good memory of our Xi’an day tour. The trip was satisfying in terms of attractions, services and our guide’s vivid introductions. We had a good understanding of the profound culture and history of this ancient city. Terracotta Warriors were really an amazing wonder of the world and the Bronze Chariots were miraculous! Walking on the City Wall during the light snowy day was an unforgettable experience. It was so chilly, but we all enjoyed the view from the City Wall. Great appreciation to Travel China Guide’s arrangements! ... More
