What To Expect

The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses
In the morning, your driver and English-speaking guide will pick you up from the hotel lobby in Xi'an and starts the tour with the world famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum that is known as “the Eighth Wonders of the World”. The museum is located 30 km east of the Xi'an City and shows a surprisingly high level in sculpture. The original site was found by four local farmers while drilling a well in 1974 and now it has turned into the most important attraction in Xi'an. The museum includes Pit 1 as the largest, Pit 2 and Pit 3 as well the exhibition hall of the chariots and horses. It is listed as the UNESCO World Heritage.

It was a such a great tour,very educational. Our tour guide is accommodating and she explained the history very well.
Excellent trip! Fantastic Jason Guide

It was a very nice day trip and the Terracotta Warriors was the highlight...Jason was very friendly and my kids aged 9 & 10 were very happy with Jason and the way he explained everything. The Xi'an wall was also nice to get up to but kids could not cycle as there were height restrictions...but still...nice.

The trip deserves a 5* but was thinking of giving a 4* due to the van issue (not the driver)..the van was rickety and wobbly in the back.. .. but, Jason guide was so good that I made it 5.

Please spend around 20 rmb each on the whisperer device...it was very good to have taken that.
73, 65+,& 40yr old, great use of time, good driver and professional guide. 2days (we did arr/dep and lodging)

I contacted Grace over wechat (I'm the 40yr old with some Chinese) and it was very convenient to negotiate places and get a recommendation of where to stay. I enjoy staying at hostels, and so I confirmed the ones were near enough to fit with budget.

I validated most of the rest of the trip and am able to get around on subways and bus in China, but you may want full service. (we chose full service in Zhangjiajie)

I hope most tourists would like to know more about how the Chinese people live, and the famous places are very well run, and are part of the story.

Wendy was very professional and easy to understand.

I think it was a bit ambitious to bike around the wall in only 1hr, so choose a way, go for 20min, then come back.

we stopped at most of the bathrooms just because of the group.

We got to meet the man who found the terracotta army! I dont think we would have had the memorable experience without having our guide.

A younger group would be able to catch an early bus to huashan and see all peaks, but we were not that group. my legs were jello. very glad to have things explained before hiking.

I've seen temples and pagodas and such before, but the suggestions of where to go after were different enough to be interesting.

i am guessing we were a tough group to work with because we did a lot of our own planning. We stayed at a hostel (picked to to be close to recommended hotel) and chose G360 train to arrive on, and flight to zhangjiajie after. so we had lots of details to discuss with Grace, and she was very gracious. she also helped us with the zhangjiajie portion.

we went in the off season.

wear layers.
