Big Wild Goose Pagoda (Dayanta)

While the Big Wild Goose Pagoda (Dayanta) follows the familiar pagoda format of successive levels diminishing in size the higher they get, this solid stone tower is largely free of the frills associated with such buildings. One of Xian’s oldest ...

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better
August 2014

The tour guide was knowledgeable and polite, and the stops were interesting. However, at the time we visited the Shaanxi History Museum was extremely crowded, and at the Big Wild Goose Pagoda we were taken to an "art gallery" where we felt that there was an expectation to buy something (although we were told that proceeds went to the temple). Furthermore, the included lunch was not very good.

We (my wife and I) took the Terracotta Warriors, Wild Goose Pagoda and Tang Dynasty tour. The tour guide, Jade, was absolutely wonderful. She is the best guide we have every had. She was very committed to seeing that we enjoyed the tour and answered many of our non-tour questions we had about China. She knew each aspect of the tour very well and she obviously had worked to learn every possible detail. My wife is gluten intolerant, and Jade went above and beyond our expectations to accommodate her dietary needs. This is highly unusual and we REALLY appreciate it. We feel that, because of Jade, we have fully experienced the Terracotta Warriors and the Wild Goose Pagoda, and also other aspects of Xi'an and China. In addition, Jade was very aware of the problems my wife has with walking for long distances or at a fast pace and helped her at every opportunity. We feel that Jade is an extraordinary person as well as being an extraordinary guide. Frankly, because of Jade, we will consider our trip a success and we really feel like she contributed to our knowledge of China, which was our goal in this trip. Also, the driver (I believe Mr. Wong) was excellent and very professional. He made the trip a pleasure. Again, we can't say enough about how good we feel how outstanding Jade is as a tour guide and person.

We (my wife and I) took the Terracotta Warriors, Wild Goose Pagoda and Tang Dynasty tour on Sunday, May 4, 2014. We flew from Shanghai Saturday just for the experience and had to be in Beijing Monday, so we had high expectations for the tour. The tour actually exceeded our expectations beyond your wildest hopes and dreams. The tour guide, Jade, was absolutely wonderful. She is the best guide we have every had. She was very committed to seeing that we enjoyed the tour and answered many of our non-tour questions we had about China. She knew each aspect of the tour very well and she obviously had worked to learn every possible detail. Most of all my wife is gluten intolerant, and Jade went above and beyond our expectations to accommodate her dietary needs. This is highly unusual and we REALLY appreciate it. We feel that, because of Jade, we have fully experienced the Terracotta Warriors and the Wild Goose Pagoda, and also other aspects of Xi'an and China. In addition, Jade was very aware of the problems my wife has with walking for long distances or at a fast pace and helped her at every opportunity. We feel that Jade is an extraordinary person as well as being an extraordinary guide. Frankly, because of Jade, we will consider our trip a success and we really feel like she contributed to our knowledge of China, which was our goal in this trip. Also, the driver (I believe Mr. Wong or Mr. Wang) was excellent and very professional. He made the trip a pleasure. Also, I want to mention that Happy Box Travel has been the most responsive of all of the agencies. They have an e-mail address to confirm, which is wonderful when we are traveling internationally and quickly respond. Again, we can't say enough about l how outstanding this tour is organized and how outstanding Jade is as a tour guide and person and how much she contributed to our appreciation of China.
