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.

Max was fantastic! She is a knowledge guide and made all the difference. In such a busy day during Chinese New Year, I was able to see it all and have fun! Thank you.

We had booked this tour through Han Tang International Services, but they 'off loaded' us to another tour company without the courtesy of telling us. This meant our pick up time was delayed by an hour and we were left waiting in the lobby. The hotel staff were kind enough to follow up with Han Tang for us. We felt Han Tang's organisational skills and customer service was very poor.

However, Max our tour guide from another company explained she had been asked to collect us for the tour and she was fantastic. We had a wonderful day with her and she was very professional and knowledgeable. Her tour included a visit to the Emperor's tomb, which was not included in our original tour.

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide provided the appropriate amount of information and was able to answer questions. While the day was hot, we enjoyed our tour.

My only suggestion is to go to the Emperor Qin's Mausoleum, the site of the Terracotta Army, first before going to Banpo. It was very crowded at the Terracotta Army site, and I don't think it would be as crowded at Banpo.

The vehicle had air conditioning and was in good repair.

I would recommend this tour, but not in mid-July! Wait until it is cooler if you have a choice.

Worth every penny, this is a must, it's huge and spectacular, the only thing I didn't like was the lunch, it's a very busy place so you had to fight your way in to get photos, tour guide was very good, I can't remember her name but she had lots of information

Absolutely brilliant!

Very crowded for picture taking but worth the visit. We enjoyed our trip to see this famous site. Lunch was HORRIBLE!! The lunch was cold, unflavored, and did not include sodas or drinks. We shared this with our tour guide. Everyone on our tour bus was appalled that the lunch selection was as bad as the service.

Of all the tours in China this was the one we were looking forward to the most! And it didn't disappoint!
We were picked up from our hotel at 9am, taken to a terracotta warrior factory - where I must say the sell wasn't as pushy as other factory tours. We then visited Banpo, an ancient village settlement followed by lunch. Then onto the Terracotta Warriors....breathtaking! More than enough time to visit and explore, our guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions that we had.
When we visit China again Xi'an is a definite must for a second visit.
