Most amazing trip. It was much more than we imagined and that was thanks to our guide Jerry , who went beyond his time and made it the most memorable part of our China trip . He suggested the Tang Dynasty show and even helped organise our trip back from the hotel to the airport. love to visit again

There is no other experience in my life that could have prepared me for the effect I felt when I first entered Pit 1 and saw the Terra-cotta Warriors and their horses! Amazing is too weak a word, and pictures do not even begin to tell you what this exhibit is truly like! As they say, You had to be there! It is perhaps the most impressive historical site I have ever visited. I want to go again!

My friend and I really enjoyed our private tour with Wendy! Our customized tour included the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Hua Qing Palace, Muslim Quarter and Great Mosque, and City Wall. Wendy was very flexible and was knowledgeable about Xian's history. We enjoyed all of the historical knowledge that we learned from her. This tour is great since it includes seeing the Terracotta Warriors but also allows you to customize the remaining sights that you want to see.

This was a great tour! Jerry took us to the Terracotta Warriors Museum and then to the Big Goose Pagoda. Both were very interesting and I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

This was a great guided tour. Victoria was an awesome tour guide and she accommodated our every needs during the trip and she was there all the way till the end of the trip. She even offer to provide us with any help if we need during our trip in China. She went over and beyond to help us out. She was perfect tour guide to have in Xi'an and I will highly recommend this one day tour to anyone visiting Xi'an it will be well worth it.

This tour was fabulous. Ms Phoenix was a great guide. We were picked up on time. Taken to the city wall and then taken to the stunning terracotta warriors. We were provided with a lot of history and shown round the complex. After that we went to the Muslim quarter for a walk and to see the mosque. A fabulous day.

This was my favorite tour we booked out of every tour we booked while in China. We booked tours in Shanghai, Suzhou, and Beijing. This one was by far the best. Our guide was so nice and very informative. She spoke very very good English as well. She knew a lot of history about places, not just surface stuff which we ran into a lot in other cities... She was also very flexible and let us do whatever we wanted with our day which was nice because a lot of other tours in China will not let you spend more/less time somewhere. They didn't try to sell us stuff or take us to any unnecessary factories. It was great. We had our suitcases with us and they let us keep our bags in the car while we toured different places and kept it all very secure. They also picked us up right from the train station with a sign waiting for us so we wasted no time looking for them included in the cost of the tour. They also have water available on the bus for you during the tour. These things were a nice bonus! We didn't have to pay at the train station. The only downside to this tour is that tickets and lunch are not included. So you do have to factor in that cost, but honestly best tour we took through the whole two weeks.

Victoria was a very good guide and was mindful of my sore knee. We had an opportunity to see the amazing Terracotta Warrior Museum, Banpo Site Museum and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Enjoyed the day and was very glad to have Victoria there to translate, interpret and provide commentary.

Our guide Jerry, along with his driver, was very prompt. He spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him!

We had a problem with our flight being cancelled, which meant that we had to be at the airport earlier than we anticipated. Our guide suggested she would take us to the airport after the tour, for a fee, which meant we would have more time. We began in the city at the city wall. We paid the fee to enter and our guide explained about the wall. She left us to explore and gave us 20 minutes, but after 10 minutes suggested we move on. We then went to the museum, paid the entrance fee and once again felt quite rushed. She knew her history, but only took us to one section of the museum. Then it was off to see the Warriors. It is an amazing sight and our guide educated us. She happily answered all our questions and allowed us plenty of time here. When we were ready to leave she suggested we go and meet the farmer who discovered the Warriors. He was very happy to invite us into his home and have photos taken with us. We then went to the airport and were there very early. We could have spent more time in the city. Our guide was on her phone a lot as well. It was a good tour. Negatives, too rushed in the city. Positives, terracotta warriors. Our guide was very informative and spoke English very clearly

Guide had good English and was very accommodating although she spent a lot of time on her cell phone. Driver had one hand on the horn and the other he used to move the car from lane to lane. Not sure why he was in such a hurry that he had to cut in on everyone. Terracotta Warriors was worth the visit.

Michaela was a great tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about the sites that we visited. We chose to start at the Big Goose Pagoda in Xi'an, followed by the terra cotta warriors and finished with a walk on the city walls. It is important to note that you get nothing except your driver and tour guide with the price of this tour. You will be expected to pay entry fees at all of the sites.

We were taken to an obvious tourist trap restaurant for lunch. We ordered a few items and felt pressured to order more dishes. We wound up paying for our guides lunch she went to the bathroom when the bill arrived and the entire meal cost more than we spent on food for the entire time we were in Xi'an 4 days!. I would have rather eaten street food from the vendors outside, than have the sit down meal in the restaurant

We felt rushed around at both the pagoda and terra cotta warriors. I wanted to stay and take photos at the pagoda, but felt like we were constantly chasing after our guide. When we finished our day at the wall, we said goodbye to our guide and told her that we would walk home. This took her by surprise, as she was expecting to take us to dinner and drop us off at our hotel. Since we didn't want to spend another 50 on dinner, we passed and enjoyed a slow and quiet walk around the city wall.

The transportation was the only upside of this private tour as the driver was great and the vehicle was comfortable. While our tour guide was friendly and her English was limited yet understandable, the way that she conducted the tour was not very professional: We were rushed through all 3 sites, her commentary and historical knowledge was lacking, and we weren't always given the option to visit all of the areas the sites had to offer. We also ended up treating her to lunch, which was fine yet unexpected. So considering everything we paid for including entry fees, we did not feel that the tour was good value for money. It just didn't seem that much effort was put into preparing it.
