I must admit that I didn't know what to expect on my jeep tour of Xian when I first met Rocky. He stood out immediately in the hotel lobby, cowboy style hat and boots, a US navy t-shirt. He looked like he was in the Special Forces and not a tour guide. But what an incredible guide he turned out... More

My wife and I took the tour and stayed at the cave. It was a great trip with interesting anecdotes of China's vast history, seeing the Terracotta Soldiers and the fantastic country side. I would definitely recommend anyone going to Xi'an to get in touch with Julia or Shane. Julia was a great guide and was very accommodating in any... More

We did the Warrior Tour, with tour guide Rocky behind the steering wheel. Before the Warriors we visited the Xi'an countryside, including a blacksmith, farmer and cave dweller. We then had a lovely lunch, using the freshest ingredients, cooked by locals. Rocky even brought along a bottle of wine! The Warriors were our main reason for visiting Xi'an and they... More

It is a little late to make my review here even though I have promoted Xi'an Insiders to all of my friends in other channels. We had 3 days amazing sidecar and jeep tour experience with the Insider Julia to get away from the busy, noisy over constructed Xi'an. :) It is such a pleasant journey to visit the cave... More

Hola Paloma, A million thanks for your very kind words, Julia does do pretty cool tours indeed and very happy you ran into a co-spanish in the middle of nowhere (what were the odds…) I hope we'll have the pleasure of seeing you again in Xi'an, Shanghai or Yunnan for a longer tour. Take care! More

In addition to the standard tour of the warriors and the little warriors, we wanted to see some of the Xi'An Countryside. Enter Xi'An Insiders! Julia was a delightful guide, waiting patiently for us to finish getting lost (it's a bit of a walk from the subway to her pick up point), and ready to go with cold water, a... More

I loved this tour! The last time I visited Xi'an was about 22 years ago & I was struck by how much it has changed & modernised. We saw the terracotta Warriors, the enormity of this project astounding when you see it up close! Something quite special this time was our stay in a cave, as many Chinese have lived... More

We had an amazing insiders experience in X'ian. We spent 3 days in X'ian and we'll never forget it. I travelled with my wife and 2 sons, aged 7 and 5. We saw so many sites, the beautiful X'ian countryside, the city wall, the terracotta warriors, thousand buddha temple, and a lovely winery. One night we stayed in a cave... More

In Xi'an, I had only a day and decided to register for the "Warrior Tour". It was such a treat, it was my first experience outside a Chinese city. Julia is such an excellent guide. I highly recommend this trip and others.

I had the chance to go back to Xi'an and took the opportunity to go around in another way with Xi'an insiders. Our 2 days trip wih Julia, the guide, was fantastic and staying in the troglodyte place was a pretty cool experience. Definitely unforgettable. Thanks Julia !

Trip was arranged by ex-pat daughter living in Shanghai. Wasn't sure what to expect but they more than delivered in both Xi'an (where we did the Terracota Warriors) and surrounding countryside in WWII-style Jeeps and Shanghai in WWII-style BMW motorcycles with sidecars ... an absolute hoot. Excellent, knowledgeable, friendly ex-pat guides in both cities. They picked us up at the... More
