Mount Hua (Huashan), one of China’s five sacred mountains thanks to its Taoist temples, sits east of Xian in Shaanxi Province. While a return hike to the top of the mountain typically requires two days, this tour makes use of the cable cars, allowing you to take in the views from the summit with only a single day. With a private guide, you can explore at a leisurely pace and ask all the questions you want.

Bruce was an excellent driver, had great English, a beautiful/ clean car and truly made the trip extremely enjoyable! I recommend Bruce if you want to go anyway in Xi’an! He knows it very well. We had a lovely time at Mt. Hua and the Terracotta warriors.
Bruce is very nice and helpful guide. Proper instructions and details in advance were provided by him. Punctual on pick up time. He welcomed with such a friendly atmosphere, I had a fantastic start! The tour was extremely good, very flexible appreciate this! and for that, he deserves a special thanks. I had two great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience.
Bruce is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide recommendable!. I truly enjoyed Mt. Huashan trip with him. He provided all the information with the day trip. He also has great patience. The car was very comfortable and clean. He arranged good quality water in advance. Also helped with all the tickets and other stuff required for the hike. He is a very good driver with knowledge of all local spots. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The plank road on the end was a great way to end the tour.
The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for Bruce who does a great job there a true sample of an excellent tour guide!
Many thanks again and I recommend Xian Tour Expert - Day Tour to everyone!
Bruce was an excellent driver. He helped us choose the right hiking route for our skill set we chose to hike the harder direction to avoid the crowds. Bruce helped us buy the tickets at the counter and sent us on our way to the mountain. He was right where he promised he would be when we returned many hours later.
NOTE: The price of this tour only includes the drive. You must bring additional money to pay for the tickets 2x bus rides, 2x cable car rides, mountain access and anything additional that you would like to purchase while on the mountain.
One of the best day trips we have ever been on, the tour company is a Xian based young couple with a family that went out of there way to make the tour an unforgettable experience. Starting with a pre tour meeting to go over the many options that are available on the day, booking the tickets on your selection, a very comfortable car drive to and from the mountain. All this at your pace , not having to wait for other. Worth the investment.
My boyfriend and I booked this tour to explore the mountain and experience the 'crazy board sky walk'. We loved every minute of this adventure! Our guide Bruce was great! He was very knowledgable and patient with us. We went there in mid August, the busiest time of the year, so we waited in long lines to get on the shuttle, and then gondola that takes you to one of the peaks. The mountain was crowded as well. We waited for 2 hours to do the board walk but it was well worth the wait! It was absolutely thrilling! We finished at dusk and by the time we came down it was dark. What a sight to behold at sunset! I definitely recommend this tour, but if you're going in August be prepared to stand in long lines and endure the heat of Chinese summer :
Bruce was a friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable tour guide for the private one day tour to Hua Shan which was beautiful. I would recommend if you're looking for a bit of nature to balance off the city tour / terracotta soldiers visit!
