Xi'an Small-Group Tour: Terracotta Warriors and Ancient City Wall Bike Tour

Biking around the Xi'an City Wall

After you are picked up from your hotel, you’ll be driven to the Xi’an city wall, one of the best-preserved, oldest and largest ancient defense systems in China. First, admire its different sections on foot. Your guide will take you on a climb to the top of several watchtowers, including the Zhenglu main tower and the Jianlou arrow tower. From this height, enjoy beautiful views of the city and the moat surrounding the wall while your guide shares with you its history and legends.

The exciting part of your tour is up next. Venture away from the crowds as your guide leads you on a 90-minute bicycle tour around the whole wall. Then, after working up an appetite, enjoy a family-style lunch at a local family’s home!

Your satisfying meal will be followed by a visit to the Terracotta Warriors Museum. Wander around the different exhibitions featuring more than 100 artifacts from the mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, and see the Terracotta Army of Warriors and Horses, an incredible collection of life-sized terracotta sculptures. Your guide will tell you about the history and significance of this popular Xi’an attraction and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Your full-day tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Although booked a group tour, we were the only one's on it so very happy for the guaranteed trip. Our guide Michelle was very knowledgeable and helpful in navigating the crazy crowds on the May 1st Holiday and was patient as we took thousands of photos. The Warriors are magnificent and the archeological work and restoration facisnating. Biking along the city wall was also a wonderful way to end the day.

The best way to see Xi'an! We really had so much fun on this tour, from start to finish! Our primary objective was to see and learn about the Terracotta Warriors and we were so happy we did this in a small group. Our guide was amazing and explained to us about the significance the warriors had to Emperor Qin. The bike tour around the Xi'an city wall was great as well - such a cool way to sight see!
