“Highlight of our Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

Our trip to the museum was organised by Viking River Cruises and could not have been done better. The guides were friendly and very informative. Although this was an escorted tour, we were given enough time to take in all of the sites and atmosphere of this. The only disappointment being that due to the heavy rain outside, we were unable to browse the shops and stalls on our return to the tour bus. Definitely must be seen on any trip to China.

“Bizarre experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

Are these genuine antics or fake communist creations ? Whatever the story, they are both worth the trip.

“Be independent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2015 NEW

I agree with all the reviewers about this amazing complex. All I would add is that we didn't pay for a driver or tour bus from the hotel, nor did we hire a guide. The public bus, number 306, goes from the bus station just outside the walls and costs less than a pound for the same journey as your driver or tour bus would do for considerably more. Also gives you an interesting journey in the company of Chinese tourists! Having read up on the Warriors before we got there we also ignored those guides hanging around the ticket booth offering to guide us round and just took our time, reading all the information boards. A fantastic experience!

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015 NEW

This is a must visit and you need hours. It is incredible the size and what the Chinese Government have done to bring the warriors and horses back for everyone to see. The story of how they found this incredible history is so fascinating. My only issue was the Chinese are so rude and push you trying to get to the front . Stand your ground and don't move so you can enjoy sheer size of this museum and remember it is only the tip of the iceberg.

“Chilling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015 NEW

Such an incredible site and uncomprehendable the amount of warriors there are and the lengths the craftsmen went to give each warrior its own identity. I kept having to remind myself that the Warriors were not real people. -although the "pits" in which they are contained resembled war graves - quite chilling! But also remarkable
