    Our Xi’an day tour was in line with the itinerary on the Internet. Thanks for all superb and comprehensive service provided by TCG. We had a responsible guide and driver who carefully looked after us all the way. Our guide Celine was knowledgeable and gave detailed introductions to each spot. The Terracotta Army mostly impressed us and we were astonished by this significant site. These pottery soldiers, horses, and chariots were so vivid and showed the great wisdom and technique of ancient people. No wonder it was the eighth wonder in the world. Overall, it was a meaningful and full trip. Great!! ... More

    So nice a Xi’an day tour and we had a wonderful experience! Our guide Waldner was a local person and familiar with each spot. He was outgoing, energetic and knowledgeable. Accompanied by him, we visited Terracotta Army, City Wall, and Giant Wild Goose Pagoda. It was a city with great charm and deep culture. One day’s tour was short and there were still many spots unseen. I would go to Xi’an next time and choose Waldner again!

    This Xi’an day tour was of high value and great significance. All highlights were covered, such as Terracotta Army, City Wall, and Giant Wild Goose Pagoda. We had a deep understanding of those attractions. Although it was rainy, we were taken good care of by our guide Lily. She paid special attention to the kids in our group, so kind. Overall, it was a satisfying trip! I am happy to recommend it to my friends.

    This Xi’an day trip was inexpensive and beyond our expectations. The trip to City Wall was interesting and was the most outstanding part for us. It was an ancient city wall with a history of over 600 years. We took a walk on the wall and listened to its history and development explained by our guide. We also rented a bike and had a bicycle riding on the wall, so exciting and memorable! Really recommend!

    The tour guide Koko was considerate of all tourists. She was my favorite Chinese tour guide. She made us feel the charm of the ancient capital of Xi'an and the honesty and enthusiasm of the local people. So I am very happy to recommend this Xi’an day tour to Terracotta Army!
