Our guide Jackie brought the history of Xi'an to life. He gave a very informative tour of the Terracotta Soliders and spent time explaining the time line of historical events- a lot to take in! He took us to a local resturant and carefully helped with the food selection - which was great - but big portions! Our time was well spent on the tour with plenty of time for photos and questions. The second day was spent in within and on the city walls , exploring the Musilim quarter and Big Goose Pagoda .Yes you could do this yourself but would miss out on the information well explained by Jackie.
We were pleased with the tour , and grateful that the time was well judged and fortunate that our holiday was at a quieter period so not as many tourists so we were able to to get close to the sights.
Great to have the personal touch, Jackie spoke good English, so communication was easy. Thank you

My family and I visited China in the first week of June, 2018. Our stay in Xi'an was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. Xi'an is an amazing place to visit, rich in history and tradition. A very special mention has to be made of our tour guide Michael Chang. Michael is such an enthusiastic, friendly and ever-smiling person who spoke excellent English. We were impressed by his knowledge and patience in answering all our questions. Michael has a great sense of humor and made ours' such a fun visit. He is such a warm and affectionate guy that we became good friends in a very short time! It was pretty hot and every now and then he would dash off and return with bottles of water, even without our asking! on Day2 when the kids wanted to cycle on the city wall early in the morning he readily obliged and was there on the dot and happily escorted them. His concern that we board our flight safely (as there was heavy rain at the tail end of our trip) was truly touching. To anyone planning a trip to Xi'an I would hands down recommend that you arrange for Michael to be your guide. His will definitely make your visit memorable! I must commend Lily for running a most efficient guide service. We had the pleasure of meeting Lily in person and she came across as a very warm and charming lady. At every place we visited, our pick up and drop off were on time. All our guides, Luis (in Beijing), Michael (in Xi'an) and Eric (in Zhangjiajie) were simply excellent. I would certainly recommend Lily's tour services to all my friends and anyone reading this review! Thanks a million Lily!

We had booked the Two Day Xian Heritage Tour with Lily's Tours. Our tour booking and communications with Ms. Lily Sun via email were all very professionally and promptly handled.

We had booked airport transfers as well and our driver Mr. Wong was waiting outside the airport to receive us and he made us very comfortable. Mr. Wong was our driver for our entire two days in Xian and he was an exemplary driver and very friendly and helpful to us.

We met our guide Michael on the morning of our tour and we had a wonderful two day experience with him. He not only explained the sights and the history of the places we were visiting but he also gave us a lot of insight into the cultural and social lives of the people of the country. He was warm and friendly and spoke excellent English. He went out of his way to make sure that our food preferences were accommodated even after the tour ended and we were on our own.

It was an overall wonderful experience and we would not hesitate to recommend the Tour, the guide and our driver to anyone travelling to Xian.

Xi'an is an excellent place to visit to see the China's past. President Xi once said, "If you want to see past of China, visit Xi'an; if you want to see China's today visit Beijing; and if you want to see future of China visit Shanghai." I am truly impressed by the city and its people. I did not hire services except a tour guide at the Tetra Cotta Soldiers site. It takes about 45 minutes from city to site, so taxi will cost around 200 yuan. I stayed in the Holiday Inn very close to Wild Goose Pagoda and everything was close.

Visited Xi'an early June 2018. We spent couple of days strolling around the city by ourselves, but decided have a local guide for touring around the sights. I found Lily through rave reviews she and the team had on TripAdvisor. We had the two day tour with lunches included, and saw Terracotta Warriors, Drum and Bell Towers, Muslim Quarters, City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Tomb of Emperor Jingdi, Culture Street, etc. We even had the opportunity meet Mr Young, who discovered the Terracotta Warriors in the seventies. Weather during our visit was hot (close to 40C/100F), so itinerary & schedule was tweaked on the fly to accommodate for the heat wave.

Overall we were extremely satisfied with the tour. Lily provided us lot of information regarding the background and history of the sights. Lunches were excellent and everything worked like charm. Xi'an is not exactly easy city to get around or all the sights that easy to reach unless your Chinese is strong, so using tour guide is something you should really consider. Having done the two day tour with Lily, I would highly recommend it. And go for the lunch; you probably end up eating in places you otherwise would not have discovered.... Highly Recommended!

I recently returned from a 9 day trip to China with my family (including 3 teenagers). We spent 2 full days in Xi'an with the tour guide Harvey. He was excellent.

I had arranged transfer from the train station on the evening we arrived in Xi'an. Lily's driver was exactly where he was supposed to be and we arrived at our hotel seamlessly.

The next morning we met our guide Harvey. We spent the next 2 days touring the TerraCotta Warriors and the sites of Xi'an. Harvey was super-knowledgeable and was able to pass along the info to my whole family and keep my daughters interested. He quickly realized our need to see as much as possible in the short time we had and we affectionately nick-named him Hurricane Harvey as he kept us moving and filled our heads with stories, history and interesting information.

On the last morning in Xi'an the driver Lily arranged for us was at our hotel on time and got us to the airport without issue. In fact, he jumped out of the car and helped us with bags and the correct check-in area.

I highly recommend Lilly's Tours and ask for Harvey.

I went on the tour with my partner and his mother over Chinese New Year. Lily's Tours made this trip so easy. I compared with other companies and the price was very fair. I was recommended Lily's an would do the same for anyone else!

We had the best time! Our guide Michael was excellent, very knowledgeable, generous and kind. He spoke excellent English and was also funny. He know so much about every location we went to!. We learnt so much about Xi'an's history and he gave us tips on the best food to get including local noodles, and the best dumplings around. Our driver got us everywhere quickly and safely, he knew all of the best pick-up spots so we did not have to walk too far.

The team were very helpful and responsive and provided us with all of the information we needed to make the decision to go with lily's.

Our tour guide Jackie made our experience in Xian a great one. He was attentive to our group of 6, ranging in age from 8 to 77. We went at the end of the Golden Week, so he structured our itinerary to ensure we avoided the crowds as much as possible. Every part of the tour was excellent, and Jackie had a wealth of knowledge about Xi'an. We had authentic local food, found clean and western toilets (so important for us!), and we saw all the sights in a short space of time without feeling rushed or tired.

I am from England and went to Xi'an to see the Terracotta Warriors having seen a documentary on the television.
As Lily's Tours have a two day Heritage Tour, I booked the two days to include the Terracotta Warriors (a sight to behold), the city wall, a traditional cave dwelling, the Shu Yuanmen Culture Street, the Hangyangling Museum, the Wild Goose Pagoda, the Muslim Quarter and the Bell Tower.
The guide was totally professional, very knowledgeable with extremely good English and I thoroughly recommend this tour.
