    The Terracotta Army was super spectacular and I’d never seen such a wonderful sight before. The pottery figurines were mainly concentrated in the pit 1 and pit2. We also visited 2 Bronze Chariot and Horses, an amazing manufacturing technique!

    Celina was a nice tour guide, we had a wonderful communication on the Xi’an day trip to City Wall. Touring around the wall by bike was an interesting activity and we were so enjoyable! We visited the Forest of Stone Steles Museum and saw many ancient Chinese stone tablets.

    And Celina was patient to answer our questions about those steles, many thanks to her. Our driver was steady and amiable, very nice to keep the car comfortable. Anyway, this was a great trip and I will come back to Xi'an for an in-depth tour in the future. ... More

    We had an interesting Xi’an day tour to Terracotta Army, Banpo Museum and Muslim Quarter. The Terracotta Army was the highlight of our Xi’an day tour and we truly had a joyful time under Carol’s professional guidance. Carol was knowledgeable and had a strong sense of service, took good care of us. The Terracotta Army preserved several thousand terracotta warriors and horses with different gestures and vivid expressions. A must-see attraction in Xi’an! If you are interested in the prehistory of China, the Banpo Museum is a wonderful site to learn the Chinese social organization, production and cultural arts 6,000 years ago. The Muslim Quarter was a food street with a variety of Xi’an distinctive snacks like Crumbled Flatbread in Mutton Stew and Steamed Meat. In general, this tour was satisfactory except for a little crowded in the Terracotta Army and Muslim Quarter. ... More

    Overall, it was a very good trip with a substantial itinerary and a responsible guide.
    She accompanied us all the way and very helpful with everything we needed! On this tour, we saw the Qin terracotta warriors, and admired the wisdom of the Chinese ancestors, and learnt the Xi’an’s history of the City Wall! A fulfilling journey!

    Definitely a highlight of touring around Xi’an! Climbing Mt. Huashan was wonderful.
    We took the cable car up and down the mountain because we had kids and the elderly. Our tour guide was very careful and considerate, telling us some dos and don'ts responsibly.
    The Mt. Huashan tour from Xi’an was really worthwhile, highly recommended! Even in winter, Huashan Mountain scenery was a feast for the eyes.

    Although the Xi'an half day tour to Terracotta Army is very short, I had to say that it was a remarkable tour for me as every detail from the airport pick-up service to the English-speaking guide and clean car was thoughtfully taken care of. Strongly recommend!

    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!

    I was feeling pretty pleased with this Xi’an 2 days tour to Terracotta Army, Yangling Mausoleum. The tour guide and the driver were dedicated and thoughtful providing lots of help for every visitor.
    And the whole journey was without any shopping stops. This itinerary was pretty reasonable and would be worth seeing!!!
