Leave your central Xi'an hotel by private, air-conditioned vehicle, and travel to the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, one of the city's two key Buddhist sites constructed during the Tang dynasty, in the 8th century.

On route, listen as your guide charts the pagoda’s history. Originally designed to house Buddhist scripts brought to China by the pilgrim Yi Jing, it was built smaller and later than Xi'an’s Big Wild Goose Pagoda — hence its name. View the multi-eaved, spindle-shaped building as your guide shares its secrets, and explore the scenic grounds, absorbing the sense of peaceful spirituality.

Then, return to central Xi'an to visit the Great Mosque, China’s first and most important mosque. Built in 742, this stunning Chinese-Arabian site honored the founders of Islam in China, and is composed of four courtyard complexes.

Admire the elaborate courts, pavilions, and pagodas, seeing their Chinese and Arabian inscriptions and reliefs.

After lunch at a Chinese restaurant, and if time permits, enjoy the opportunity to shop and stroll independently around Xi'an’s Muslim Quarter bazaar, where handicraft and folk art shops fill the lanes around the Great Mosque.

Finally, your tour concludes with a drop-off at your central hotel.
