    I booked a 2 days Xi’an day trip on TravelChinaGuide with my family and friends.
    We felt so good about this trip. The guide was thoughtful and made a compelling interpretation, which made me have a deep understanding of the background culture.
    It rained a little while riding on the City Wall, but we experienced the unique scenery in the rain. It was, all in all, a smooth and happy trip!

    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!
