My guide was Maggie again from a tour the previous day. It was raining and dull, but not deterred, we set off for the Terracotta Warrior site. Even though it was raining, there were many many people there to tour the site. Maggie was great and very knowledgeable of the history of the Chinese dynasty's and the site in general. We visited a gift shop where I met the farmer who had discovered the Warriors back in 1974. I had the obligatory picture and bought a book. Maggie took me to the three big Hangers which house the different pits and exhibits. It was sometimes difficult to take good pictures due to the number of people around, Maggie would provide history details when necessary and would advise me of the best places to take pictures. Afterwards, we walked to a local restaurant where I had a traditional tea preparation and some lunch, before the drive back to Xi'an. It was a wonderful day, event though it was wet and cold. Maggie was fantastic and I really enjoyed myself. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Xi'an.
Maggie was phenomenal and super knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this trip. My boyfriend proposed to me outside on a path and Maggie was able to get pictures of the special moment! Absolutely a wonderful trip to see the Terracotta Warriors.
Maggie, was an outstanding tour guide for my private tour she explained to me about the customs and culture of the Chinese while we were driving to the museum and then took me through the tour answering all my questions it was a great tour I’d recommend Maggie any day of the week. I would ask for h
This is the perfect length of time to see the warriors, and I enjoyed having my own guide and driver. I could decide when I'd had enough. Note that at this time of year, it is just before the big Golden Week celebration, so there are already some local crowds. It's about an hour out of downtown Xi'an to get to the museum. First stop is the official store, so be prepared for that. You get to see the farmer who discovered the warriors he signs books. The warrior replicas are higher quality here than elsewhere, but you pay more for it. Most of the warriors are in the first pit you visit a few are in the second one the third is largely covered for conservation. There is a bronze chariot museum at the end. Don't be discouraged by crowds in the first pit they move through quickly. Be patient and jockey for space at the railing. On the way out, there is likely time to stop for a snack in the part of Xi'an where the museum is for the drive back I can't get enough of those little burgers. If you're leaving Xi'an that same day, consider asking to couple this with an airport transfer it's an additional charge, but it can work well for afternoon flights and save you a doubled up transportation logistic.
Great tour of the warriors!!!
Excellent guide and driver - it was very hot when we visited the tomb and so it was great to have a knowledgable and pleasant guide to get through the wonderful sites efficiently!
Wonderful half day tour with Maggie, my guide. She was prompt picking me up at the hotel, very knowledgeable of the area and 'The Warriors' and clearly loves what she does. The site of the warriors is amazing. Well worth the time and money.
Maggie was an exceptional guide! Very nice tour overall!

Lots of walking but physically challenged accessibility is provided and transportation assistance is available for a healthy, but worthwhile fee. Feel the remarkable energy provided by such an amazing feat. Visiting all the sites is important to fully appreciate the scope and complexity of this moment in history. If you are lucky, Maggie will be your guide.
