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 !

Thank you for your kind words Greg, It is always a challenge to show China to an expat so it means the world to us to get a positive feedback from you. Also very happy that you enjoyed the cave dwelling, Julia put her heart and soul into rebuilding it and is very happy to see her efforts pay off.... More

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

The tour was organized brillant. We visited the terracotta warriors and the panda preserve. Our tour guide Julia gave us many informations about history, food and culture. Unfortunately weather conditions were not so good (raining and fog). Local food was included. For us food was very well, but you must like Chinese food. In restaurants on country side it is... More

We have lived in China for three years now and struggled at times to find the charm. Big cities, big crowds, generally marginal service but nothing that really showed us a more real China. The Insiders tour with Julia at the helm gave us a view of China we never could have done on our own. Temples and sites along... More
