Xi’An is the capital of Shaanxi Province and was the fabled starting point for the famous Silk Road. It served as the provincial capital for 13 dynasties, spanning a period of 1,100 years.

What To Expect

Xi'an Banpo Museum
Dating back about 6,000 years, Banpo was a typical Neolithic matriarchal community. At that time, the Banpo people used tools made primarily of wood and stone. Women, the crucial labor force, were responsible for making pottery, spinning, and raising the family, while men fished. This excavated site of a village was discovered in 1953, 45 houses, 6 pottery kilns, 200 storage pits, 250 adult’s tombs and children’s burial jars, 10,000 tools and utensils were unearthed.

Fabulous Day

This was a fabulous day trip in Xian. It is well organized and planned and something not to missed while in Xian. The Terracotta Warriors have been well preserved and are well presented with great, close access available to leave a lasting experience.
The warriors of Xian, a wonder

To see the warriors of Xian should be a must when visiting China. It is difficult to describe them: they simply are the eight wonder of the wander.

The Terracotta Warriors tour was amazing! From the ease of setting it up, to the on-time arrival of the tour bus in the morning, to the unbelievable scope of the site itself, it was truly a stress-free and memorable day. Despite the fact that I had initially provided an incorrect hotel location, the tour company took my corrected location just one day before the tour in stride. The front desk personnel of our hotel let me know upon check in that they had been in touch with them, and confirmed the arrival time, thereby relieving any stress I might have had about making the morning connection for the tour. Our tour was provided in English, and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and explained everything clearly. The tour itself, including a stop at a 6,000 year old excavated settlement, along with the actual site of the Terracotta Warriors, was extremely interesting. And the Terracotta Warriors site itself is, quite frankly, mind-blowing. It's a massive site, and our guide did a great job gathering us for explanations of things, while also giving us time to wander around on our own. Rendezvous points were clearly explained so that we all knew when and where to reconvene. The return trip to Xi'an was efficient and included drop offs at our respective hotels. One person in my party inadvertently left his phone sitting on the seat of the tour bus when we were dropped off, and between the very helpful Viator staff, in conjunction with our hotel front desk staff, we had his phone back in his hands within forty-five minutes, averting what could have been a really upsetting end to our day. I can't thank Viator enough for, their helpful staff, and for providing an amazing and educational day! I can highly recommend this tour without reservation!
Amazing experience!!!!

This is a well organised and extremely popular world class attraction. A well planned out walk through the buildings will help do some research before, spend a couple of days in the village and spa
