What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Tomb of Emperor Jingdi with Xi'an Airport Transfer

Airport Transfer in Xi'an

Arriving in Xi'an: Airport to Hotel
Your exciting time in Xi'an will start immediately when you arrive at the airport, where your guide will meet you and take you on a 30-minute drive to the Tomb of Emperor Jingdi (Hanyangling Tomb) for a 3-hour private tour.

On the way, learn how the tomb was built in 153 AD as a joint tomb between Emperor Jingdi and his loving wife Empress Wang.

When you arrive, your guide will show you the proper way to enter the underground tomb, an archaeological site protected by a transparent glass floor. With your provided shoe protectors, walk right on top of the exhibit and see all the way to the bottom.

See thousands of miniature human figures specially arranged in various corridors, and learn about royal life and the social system 2,000 years ago in China. Learn how these figures differ from the famous Terracotta Warriors in Emperor Qin’s Mausoleum. Jingdi’s army figurines were made of clay and wood, so they began to rot, which is why many of the statues are armless.

After your fascinating tour, you’ll be taken directly to your hotel to begin your stay in Xi’an.

Departing Xi'an: Hotel to Airport
If you have limited time in Xi'an, you can still do some great sightseeing before your departure flight. At the end of your stay, your guide will pick you up at your hotel and take you on a tour of the Tomb of Emperor Jingdi. Afterward, you’ll be taken directly to the airport to catch your late-afternoon departure flight.

Price is per person, based on 6 adults per car/vehicle.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Worth a visit if you are a history/archaeology fan. Not easy to get there by public transport, so I would recommend organising a private tour or hiring a taxi for the day. The site is divided into two: the pits opened to the public this side of the museum must have seen better times and it is kept very dark. According to my guide there used to be a bigger shop on site and a film explaining the finds, but it all looks very empty and run down now and a museum. Make sure you are taken to both about 5 minutes apart by car. My guide said it was her first time in the museum and for me it completed the visit and without it, it would not have been that worthwhile.
