What You Can Expect

Xi'an in One Day: Day Trip from Beijing by Air with Private Terracotta Warriors

Xi'an in One Day: Day Trip from Beijing by Air with Private Terracotta Warriors

From Beijing, start with an early morning transfer from your hotel to the airport for your flight. Your expert local guide meets you when you land at the Xi’an airport and takes you to your first stop in a comfortable, private vehicle. Feel free to share any special interests you might have so that your guide can customize the commentary.

As you head out of town to see the world-famous terracotta warriors, your guide explains the region’s rich history. Learn about the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty, who commanded that the terracotta army be made during his reign. Admire some of the estimated 8,000 life-size soldiers and horses that were buried in Qin Shihuang’s tomb to protect him in the afterlife — a testament to his power, and designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The main vault is the most impressive, with figures arranged in typical battle formation. Eleven columns of terracotta officers and soldiers stand ready for one last battle, wielding spears, swords and horse-drawn chariots. Have the option to peruse the adjacent museum as well.

Take a break for lunch at one of Xian’s most renowned restaurants, choosing from an array of delectable regional dishes. Then continue your tour of Xi’an in the afternoon. In the Old City, stop at the ancient city wall, first constructed in the 2nd century BC, then rebuilt in AD 1370 during the Ming Dynasty. Next, see the Muslim Quarter followed by the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, a Buddhist temple from the Tang Dynasty that was built in 652. The seven-story central pyramid remains an iconic sight in Xi'an.

After visiting the pagoda, your guide returns you to Xi'an airport to catch your flight back to Beijing. Upon arrival, you are transferred back to your hotel for the night.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

This trip really was a must do although we could not get through to the tour guide to find out our pickup time and had to phone Viator who I must say were not that helpful, eventually the guide rang us at about 9pm to tell us about our 5pm pickup. You really see so much on this tour and the guides are excellent

Excellent day trip and worth every dollar. It is a long day but truly a wonderful packed day. We were driven to the airport and boarded the plane with one guide and met the other end by another guide. We were lucky to have a guide for the two of us and he provided us with historical information on the visited Terracotta Warriors, City Wall, Muslim Quarters and Pagoda. True highlights of the day were the amazing warriors and the Xi'an City Wall and a huge delicious dumpling lunch. Fabulous tour and highly recommended!

Great trip. Guides were professional and knowledgeable. They took great care of us every step of the way. Good communication with main office about our hotel pick up and delivery to and from the airport and every detail of the trip. Lunch was perfect, side tour of city was very interesting. Highly recommend this excursion.
