The Famous City Walls of Xi'an

Depart from your Xi’an hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and venture to the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage-listed site of the Terracotta Army. Listen as your guide sets the historical scene and describes how 7,000 life-sized terracotta figures and horses were buried beside Emperor Qin Shihuang in his majestic mausoleum. Disembark and explore the site, marvelling at the endless rows of figures. Browse the exhibitions of the museum to gain further insight into the intriguing history of the tomb. 

Revitalize with a traditional Chinese lunch in a local restaurant then head to the site of the Banpo ruins, an ancient area whose origin is more than 6,000 years old. Marvel at artifacts from a Neolithic matriarchal community and hear of how the ruins were discovered during a groundbreaking excavation.  

After your explorative tour, return to your comfortable vehicle and relax during the journey back to your Xi’an hotel, where the tour concludes.

I absolutely enjoyed the tour of the museum and the terracotta warriors. Max the tour leader was knowledgeable and ver humorous and happy and kept the group entertained. Prior to the hotel pick up I was contacted multiple times regarding pick up time and location.
I had a great tour and i think everyone on the bus did also.

This was a great tour with a wonderful tour guide, Amy. She provided us with information about the two sites we visited, Banpo Museum and then the Terracotta Warriors excavation. This trip was well worth the price.

Rose is very nice and helpful guide. Proper instructions and details in advance were provided by her. Punctual on pick up time. She welcomed with such a friendly atmosphere, I had a fantastic start! The tour was extremely good, very flexible appreciate this! and for that, she deserves a special thanks. I had two great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience.

Rose is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide recommendable!. I truly enjoyed Terracotta essentials trip with her. She provided all the information on the day trip. She also has great patience. The car was very comfortable and clean. She arranged good quality water and western style food in advance. Also helped with all the tickets and other stuff required for the day. The driver was very good with knowledge of all local spots. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The city wall on the end was a great way to end the tour.

The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for Rose who does a great job there a true sample of an excellent tour guide!

Many thanks again and I recommend Hantang International Travel to everyone! Thanks for the services.

No doubt I'd recommend this. Small van. Cozy group of 5 and a fantastic tour guide, whose name I can't recall in Chinese, but went by Lucy. She speaks perfect English we discussed politics and history, she is thoughtful and funny. Made our day wonderful. The trip was organized and pleasant. Being American, I can moan this was good.

very worthy tour! Lucia was a great guide. they take you to Bampo site first which is 6000 years old, this place has great historic significance. followed by lunch and then to terra cotta army site. The site has 3 pits which are open to public. The pit 1 is marvellous as you see through the remains of a rich history legacy. must visit site in China to understand the essence of culture and history of china. overall the tour was very well organised with no issues at all.
