The Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum is a MUST see! Our tour guide, Jerry, was knowledgeable about the Terracotta Warriors. The tour was great, however, we did not like the visit to the terracotta replicas factory. We felt that we were pressured to buy items from the fabric. It was a waist of our time. We also felt that Jerry wasn't as engaged with us as other tour guides we have had in other tours through Viator.com. Nevertheless, it is a must see if you are in Xi'an, and having a private tour to this place is worth it.
Of the three tours I took in China, this was my least favorite. Definitely a spot worth visiting, but you don't need to spend hours here. I feel like 1-2 hours at the site is plenty.
The Warrior tour is superb and the guide, driver and private vehicle were all great... but the extra value from learn how to make one is very limited - basically a free gimmick to get you into a large shop, where the warrior making takes 2 minutes and the warrior pictures are very basic!
The Terracotta Warriors are amazing to see. The guide was good but a bit disorganized. Overall, I really enjoyed the tour.
Lovely, informative tour guide Alicia with excellent English skills. However, tour poorly organised with three different itineraries in the same minibus. The others had not booked for all three attractions, so were told they would need to pay the extra for entry fees, or wait in the minibus. Needless to say, they were less than impressed. Too much time spent at unscheduled shopping stops and not enough time at the main attractions 40mins Banpo, less than 2 hours Terracotta Warriors and less than 1 hour Huaqing on what was a full day tour. Driver was quite abrupt and tried to drop me off a block away from my hotel on return. Lunch was just ok, and I had to pay an extra 30 CYN for a cup of tea! Having said that, it was a convenient way to get around and the attractions themselves were wonderful.
Terracotta Warriors are definitely worth the trip to Xi'an and having a private tour guide made this a very easy, flexible experience. We were staying in the southern part of town Westin and so had quite the drive out to see the statues, which are pretty much exactly where they've always been...just now with a museum around them. One of the farmers who originally discovered them is still alive and on-site many days...you can meet him and get the official coffee table book autographed by him. Pictures don't quite capture the grandeur and scale of the warriors, must see in person.
We visited the forbidden city and the Great Wall, great experience, recommended
The trip was fine, however, this was not a small group. We were 16 people in that tour which I hardly consider small. However, everything went smoothly and the guides were really great.
