Our tour guide Michelle was phenomenal. She was very knowledgeable of the area and really went the extra mile to answer general informational questions and provided great historical detail. We were a group of four people and it was a nice size. The van was temperature controlled. The lunch was at a local farm home and was very authentic and welcoming. I would recommend this trip to anyone, it was truly a highlight.

Great Guide and Driver with excellent English
Scrumptious food with a lovely local family
Wish I'd been able to spend more time at the Hot Springs - well worth a visit even if Lonely Planet says mediocre

I happened to be the only person who signed up for this tour so I ended up getting a private tour without really signing up for one. The Terracotta Warriors were great and the guides estimate of spending 2.5 hours there was the perfect amount of time. I saw everything I wanted to see. I mentioned for lunch that I had a few dietary restrictions and they had no issues accommodating them. There was so much food and I definitely left full! The Hot Springs were relaxing but the English at the spa isn't great. You just have to be willing to get into a pool and see what happens. Most were hot and had plants floating in them but I did find one pool that had the fish that nibble at your feet. It was unexpected but a fun memory! I would have loved to stay there longer but I was there for 2 hours so I can't really complain. They were sticking to the schedule of having me back around 5pm.

A visit to see the Terracotta Warriors is a 'must do' on any trip to China and the Terracotta Warrior Museum did not disappoint. It's amazing and slightly crazy, when you know the history and shouldn't be missed. Lunch was in an ordinary house though described as a 'farmer's lunch' and though the surroundings were basic, the food was good, but not really what I'd been expecting. However, the visit to the Hot Springs visit was a disappointment. Unfortunately I was the only person on this tour and the guide left me to go into the Hot Springs alone. None of the staff spoke English and I don't speak Mandarin so I had no idea what was happening nor had any information about the various pools or massages. Given the lack of information, it felt like a wasted afternoon and all in all it was a disappointing day. If the guide had accompanied me and explained more of what was on offer I think I would have enjoyed it but as it was a confusing and disappointing experience.
