5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

I happened to be the only person who signed up for this tour so I ended up getting a private tour without really signing up for one. The Terracotta Warriors were great and the guides estimate of spending 2.5 hours there was the perfect amount of time. I saw everything I wanted to see. I mentioned for lunch that I had a few dietary restrictions and they had no issues accommodating them. There was so much food and I definitely left full! The Hot Springs were relaxing but the English at the spa isn't great. You just have to be willing to get into a pool and see what happens. Most were hot and had plants floating in them but I did find one pool that had the fish that nibble at your feet. It was unexpected but a fun memory! I would have loved to stay there longer but I was there for 2 hours so I can't really complain. They were sticking to the schedule of having me back around 5pm.

Thank you our guide Michelle and Viator! You did an excellent job with both English and the information you gave the time spent at each place was adequate. Lunch was delicious!!! The driver and his van were friendly, professional and clean. Thank you for having us.

Michelle was very knowledgeable in the history of Xi’an, the terracotta warriors and the whole history of china. Timing was very good. There was enough time to see the exhibits, take pictures, and learn, without feeling rushed. Michelle knows paths that were less crowded and optimized time. Our driver was very safe. We highly recommend this tour. Lunch was delicious, one of our favorite meals in china.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2015

A visit to see the Terracotta Warriors is a 'must do' on any trip to China and the Terracotta Warrior Museum did not disappoint. It's amazing and slightly crazy, when you know the history and shouldn't be missed. Lunch was in an ordinary house though described as a 'farmer's lunch' and though the surroundings were basic, the food was good, but not really what I'd been expecting. However, the visit to the Hot Springs visit was a disappointment. Unfortunately I was the only person on this tour and the guide left me to go into the Hot Springs alone. None of the staff spoke English and I don't speak Mandarin so I had no idea what was happening nor had any information about the various pools or massages. Given the lack of information, it felt like a wasted afternoon and all in all it was a disappointing day. If the guide had accompanied me and explained more of what was on offer I think I would have enjoyed it but as it was a confusing and disappointing experience.
