Great tour. The sights, of course, are spectacular. In terms of the tour, the guide was excellent. Very personable and very good English. Arrangements were great. Pickup at my hotel and transfer to the airport. Pickup at Xi'an airport. Pickup back in Shanghai and return to my hotel. All were professionally handled. Highly recommend this tour.
Great fantastic tour I had a private tour in shanghai as I was only one booked for that day. Kimi my tour guide was very pleasant, and very knowlegable. I enjoyed the day, which was VERY long ,tremendously. Day began with pickup at hotel at 530 AM , flight to Xian, and return to my shanghai hotel at midnite. The warriors were highlight of day,or maybe even my entire stay in China. Kudos
Xian is a fascinating city. The Terra Cotta warriors are stunning and well worth visiting. The highlight of my trip to China. The city of Xian was very beautiful and still has the 13th Century walls intact and a number of other interesting buildings from the 13th Century. A long day but very worthwhile. Air delays into and out of Shanghai Airport make the day even longer
We had trouble working a visit to the warriors in our itinerary so took advantage of this one day trek. It was a very long day and expensive but we would not have missed the opportunity to see the site. It was breathtaking to say the least. Pictures cannot convey the magnitude of the pits. The fact that each warrior is different is mind boggling and the exacting detail of each warrior is truly spectacular. We also were very impressed with the tour of the city walls of XI'an.
Our trip to Xian was overwhelming!! The terracotta warriors are absolutely worth to see, even it meant for us to get up at 4 a.m. to be at the airport in time and to come back to the hotel late at night :) The excavations in Xian – they are 3000 years old – are in an incredibly good shape and impressive in many ways. Our friendly and funny guide Chin took a lot of time to explain everything and to made this a day we will not forget. The cherry on the cake was the visit of the old city wall of Xian. We took a bicycle and had a wonderful ride into the sunset on top of the wall. Absolutely recommendable!
A must see and an easy way to do it if you only have a day. The guides made it easy - from the hotel pick up to the flights to the tour itself - and were very knowledgeable. Not even the constant rain that day took away from the experience.
Trip of a lifetime. Great service from driver and previous night's guide. Jennifer was extremely concerned about our arrival at airport and successful navigation of airport. She wrote detailed directions for us and gave us her phone number in case of emergency. Very caring.
Sara our guide was fabulous. This was a long trip but the best one we did. The warriors are just awe inspiring. An amazing piece of history. Good driver, good lunch and highly recommend this tour even though it's quite expensive. Well worth it.
As others have stated, it is a long day. They picked you up very early, in my case 4:50 am and dropped you off at my hotel after midnight.
When they picked you up from your hotel, they give you your airline tickets and info on who will meet you in Xi'an. The departure time is a bit stressful as it does not give you much time at the airport in Shanghai. I literally got to the gate as they were calling to board the plane. So maybe a pick up of 4:30 would be better. My guide in Xi'an, Lucy, was great. Our first stop was store selling clay warriors. Interesting place. Some of you may be turn off by the idea but I would suggest you go. No need to buy anything but a great place to take picture with the replica warrior as you will have to pay extra at the site. I had lunch and they we visited the famous Army of Terracotta Warriors. As it was off season, it was easy to walk around the pits. There are 3 pits and the most impressive pit is the first one and it has a lot of different warriors.
the Xian city walls was also interesting. I wanted to ride the bike around the wall but the smog in the city was really bad so I only walked a bit.
The muslin market was interesting as well. Tried a few sweets and they were great. I was drop off at the airport in Xi with plenty of time to get something to eat. I got back to my hotel around 12:30 AM. All in all a good day trip. It was well organize and my guide in Xi'an was great
