Afterwards, follow our guide to tour the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, the earliest and largest square tower built of bricks during the Tang Dynasty.

Tour Highlights
Xian City Wall
It was originally built during the Sui and Tang dynasties (581 - 907) to defend against enemies and was reinforced and extended in the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). You can overlook the whole of Xian City standing on the wall and the traditional layout and buildings in the inner city present a striking contrast with modern high-rise buildings on the outside.
What a joyful tour on the City Wall!
Forest of Stone Steles Museum
It has been an art museum for more than 900 years with a collection of more than 11,000 cultural relics, including famous calligraphies and tablets of all ages, displayed in seven major showrooms.
Shaanxi History Museum
There is a collection of more than 370,000 cultural relics that have been unearthed from all over the province.

Among these are exquisite bronze vessels of the Shang and Zhou dynasties (17th century BC - 256 BC), various terracotta figures of all ages and well-known Han and Tang Dynasty gold and silver wares. The exhibits also include unrivalled Tang Dynasty tomb murals that show the profound Chinese ancient civilization and Shaanxi's rich history and culture.

    I was very satisfied with the one day Xian City tour. There were only five people in our group and we had a good time. We visited the City Wall, Forest of Stone Steles Museum, Shaanxi History Museum and Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The most wonderful part of this trip was that we had lunch at a local family. I hadn’t had such experience on other trips!

    We ate a hearty breakfast before departure. It was convenient for us to travel in a special car. The tour guide was professional and dedicated. There were many visitors in Shaanxi History Museum, and the guide's explanation about it was very vivid. I deeply felt the profound Chinese culture. The whole trip was harmonious and enjoyable. All in all, it was quite a memorable trip!

    Having a long history, Xi'an is listed as one of China's seven ancient capitals. Personally, I think Xi'an day tour on TravelChinaGuide, which was a tourism company featuring professional tour guides, experienced drivers and comprehensive service with highest standards. I was very satisfied with the travel plan and service provided by TCG. And the guide helped me and joined the search for things left behind on the bus. Thanks a lot! Highly recommended!
