In the afternoon, we will continue the trip to the Shaanxi History Museum to learn more about the profound Chinese civilization, especially during the Zhou (1046-256 BC), Qin (221-207 BC), Han (202 BC-220 AD) and Tang (618-907) dynasties. Afterwards, we will head to visit the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, which is the earliest and largest square tower built of bricks during the Tang Dynasty. Your Xi'an city tour will end here, and you will be escorted back to your hotel. We hope you have enjoyed your Xi'an day trip and we look forward to serving you again.

Tour Highlights
Xi'an City Wall
It was originally built during the Sui and Tang dynasties (581-907) to defend against the enemies and was reinforced and extended in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). While standing on the wall, you will feel the striking contrast between the traditional layout and buildings in the inner city and the modern high-rise buildings in the outside.
What a joyful tour on the City Wall!
Forest of Stone Steles Museum
It has been an art museum for over 900 years, with a collection of more than 11,000 cultural relics, including famous calligraphies and tablets from various eras, displayed in seven major showrooms.
Shaanxi History Museum
There is a collection of more than 370,000 cultural relics unearthed throughout the province, which span over 1,000,000 years, from the Stone Age to the year of 1840. Among these are exquisite bronze vessels of the Shang and Zhou dynasties (17th century BC-256 BC), various terracotta figures of all ages and delicate gold and silver wares of the Han and Tang dynasties (202 BC-907 AD).

    Overall, I had a fantastic Xi’an city trip and I felt that I got great value for the money. Your response to our inquiry and requirements were very prompt and the service was also of a quite high level. Also, we had a further understanding of Chinese history after visiting the Shaanxi History Museum. The magnificent walls and ancient buildings at the City Wall were also worthy of visiting. We rented a bicycle and cycled around the wall, taking about 3 hours. It should be noted that the uneven road on the wall may make you uncomfortable. Thank you very much for the great work in organizing a trip that I will never forget. ... More

    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!
