Must See Terra-Cotta Warriors!
TanjaB488, 18-12-2019
We've been in Chengdu and unfortunately not enough time to visit beautiful Xi'an as well. But we didn't want to miss the Terra-catto Warrior. Definitely once in a lifetime experience. So thanks to the bullet train who is running from Chengdu to Xi'an since last year we took our chance and booked a 1-Day-Trip with Jasmine who was our private guide! She did a fantastic job. She is very knowledgable and her English is fantastic. As we are foodies she even took us to a local restaurant (promise, no tourist trap) afterwards and scheduled us on an earlier train back to Chengdu. All totally worth the money. If you are close to Xi'an - Terra-cotta Warrior are a must see. Comparable to the Pyramids and Machu Pichu! Take your chance and book this great 1-Day-Tour!
Amazing Overnight Trip

Wow I got to see so much in a sort time. I couldn’t of done this on my own. I received door to door service and the driver knew all the good places to park. Coffee my guide was very professional and went out of his way to explain the history of all the sites we visited. I got a little sick at night and he personally took me to a Chinese Medical Center. The herbal medicine worked very fast.
I would highly recommend to use Xi’an tour company. They picked we up from the hotel and someone met me at each station. At night we went to the Muslim market and tried the Beef Burgers
Terracotta Warriors Amazing One Day Trip

This trip was awesome!!! Don’t get me wrong it was a long day of traveling (6:00am-10:00pm) but it was worth every moment!!!!

The Terracotta Warriors in Xian, known as the eighth wonder of the world, is a museum to display the terra-cotta warriors and horses which were made in Tang Dynasty. They were something I learned about in grade school and I never thought I would see them for myself!!

We decided 3 days before leaving for China to book this tour we were extremely impressed with how fast and professional China Xi’an Tour was in getting information to us and our tour booked!!

We were pleased that our drivers and tour guide, Noble, were on time and escorted us quickly to our destinations. Noble did an amazing job providing us with the history behind the warriors and the emperor who ordered their construction. Noble speaks English very well and we had no issues understanding everything he was explaining to us.

Being knowledgeable of the area and the local shops nearby Noble was able to help us purchase some gifts and we even got to meet one of the four farmers who discovered the Terracotta warriors in 1974. Noble also knew where a second of the farmers might be in the museum area and we saw him as well (no photo).

The train to and from Chengdu where we were staying to Xi’an was very comfortable and I highly recommend booking first class tickets (very reasonably priced) when you book your tour as they were very comfortable, especially considering we spend 8 hours on a train that day!!

I would definitely use this tour company again if and when we come back to China!!! Thank you China Xi’an Tour and Noble for a great day!!!
Fantastic company!!!

This tour was perfect for our needs! We stayed in Chengdu and wanted to take the bullet train to see the terracota army in Xi'an. The communication by Amy, who we booked through was incredible. Everything went as it was supposed to according to our itenairy set up by this company. Our train tickets were pre purchased and waiting for us at our hotel the day prior. The guide we met in Xi'an was right where she was supposed to be and spoke great English. Our vehicle was very nice and we had a wonderful day visiting the terracota army. I highly reccommend this company for all your touring needs. I was completely satisfied with them and would reccommend them to all!
Great Trip

Organized trip via CXT website from Australia for 1 day bullet train to the warrior. Also arranged lunch upon our arrival in Xi’an through them. Very slight hiccup with our hotel collection which was soon fixed upon a phone call to the company. Everything else went smoothly and according to our arrangements. Had 8 in our group and were treated to one of the best lunches we have had in China. Bullet Train was comfortable and fast. The warriors were exceptional to see. The crowds were as to be expected, huge for middle of the day. Overall a long day, about 20 hours from waking up to getting back to the hotel in Chengdu but worth it. Can not fault Sophia and her staff, our guide Noble and our drivers for a wonderful experience that won’t be forgotten. Would recommend dealting with CXT with nothing to much trouble for them and very accommodating.
