“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

a nice section to start the walk, and you can expect a wonderful scheduled performance on changing guards with their ancient outfit.
Someone with a thing with martial art movies or chinese history, might find this very interesting indeed...

“Similar to Great Wall, Beijing but small !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The ancient city wall in Xian is very like the Great wall in Beijing but it is small in every sphere. One should get an idea of the Great Wall if visits the city wall in Xian. Wonderful !

“A Bicycle ride along the wall is a must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Our guide with China Odyssey Tours arranged for the bicycle rental near the west gate. What a neat way for the family to ride along the wall. We were able to stop and look at the displays. We also stopped to look at a fruit and veg market next to the wall and got some great video footage.

This wall is very well preserved and even for a large person such as myself, was a nice casual ride along the wall. We found that 45 minutes was enough to do about half of the city wall and take in attractions.

Great spots to take photos of the city.

“nice ride along the ancient wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

we rented a bicycle for 90mins. Not able to finish the entire wall. Only finished half of it. was good that we can have a good view of the city. Also there are different performances within. We watched the ancient soldier march. but their costumes are somehow too undetailed (wear shorts). I dunno if that is really the costume of the Sui dynasty.

“Try a bike ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

The Ancient City Wall is wonderful - you can appreciate ancient Xian by either hiring a bike and riding round, or take the modern method of cart. If you are a foreigner, you will be as much of a tourist attraction to the locals, but the locals are friendly and very helpful. A great way to see the history of Xian!
