          If you like history and live performance, it is a must-see.
          The performance was impressive; however, paying $54 to eat just dumplings is overpriced. I had difficulty arriving at the destination. Triadvors and The Tang Dynasty Thearter needed to provide better directions on how to get to their destination. Getting there took me an hour and a half and lots of patience.

          Nice option to spend an evening
          please provide a more detailed adress as it was not possible for us to figure out the venue and exact adress by ourselves. Even the Chinese hotel staff needed some time. It was quite a hassle to get there as there is more than one theatre like that. However the show was spectecular. Had a variety of traditional costumes, music instruments, lots of epic dance and choreography, an impressive modern stage design and also translation in English. Note that it was all playback which seems to be the standard in all the Chinese dynasty shows we visited so far.

          Wonderful experience
          Went on a trip to Terra Cotta Warriors and Ming Wall. The feeling of looking at the 8th wonders is amazing. It is indeed magnificent and great. The Ming Wall was well preserved and views from the top was nice. Tour Guide Crystal Guo is a well trained guide and she was accommodating. Her knowledge is top !

          Xian English day tour
          I had a wonderful Xian day tour with Ms. Betty. The best part of spending the day with her was that she took the time to teach me about the local culture and history of Xian. I got so much more out of the tour because of her knowledge. I would highly recommend this tour and Ms Betty to anyone interested in an English based tour of Xian.

          Awesome tour and guide!
          Amazing experiencia! I did the tour with Lin, and she started telling me about the history of the mount and of Xian as son as the car picked me up at the hotel. We reached all the peaks, and throughout the entire day I got to learn a lot about the culture and history of Xian. Lin also recommended me places and restaurants to visit and she even helped me with subway instructions to move around, she was the best guide in China by far! Great tour!

          Amazing experience and a tick off our bucket list
          The views are amazing, Linn brought us on a brisk walk and was considerate of our speed. There was explanations of history of Huashan as well as key photo taking locations and we went back tired and fulfilled. Going up the west peak by cable car and coming down from the north peak by cable car is highly recommended!

          5 stars excellent tour!
          Linn brought us to so many major attractions and the tour was very informative. We ended the tour with alot more knowledge of chinese history and appreciation for Xian. It's not your typical tour where the tour guide brings you around and ends up in shops buying souvenirs. The lunch was awesome having a taste of what is the best biang biang noodle in town.

          Great Wall
          The day trip to the wall was amazing! We drove a little further which was well worth the drive because it was quieter. The cable car ride was a beautiful way to see the sites. The Summer Palace was quite spectacular. Our tour guide Michael was very knowledgeable and guided us through the crowds with ease.

          Highlights of Xi’an
          Really enjoyed the highlights tour of Xi’an. From pick up from the hotel to dropping off it really was excellent. Maria is very knowledgeable and the food we had was excellent too. Highly recommend this tour as I imagine with the high number of tourists it can be very difficult to do it on your own.

          Incredible day and great logistics
          Excellent service…all the vehicles were modern and clean. Bullet train from Xi’an to Luoyang to visit the Longmen Grottoes and Shaolin Temple was fast and great schedules. Rocky our companion on this excursion provided exceptional support and immense amounts of information about the sites. The Longmen Grottoes are incredible examples of Chinese Buddhist art. The images, many once painted, were beautiful. The central cave carved in limestone cliffs is truly magnificent…the central figure approximately 55 feet tall. We then traveled to the Shaolin Monastery also known as Shaolin Temple. This is monastery is recognized as the birthplace of Chan Buddhism and the cradle of Shaolin Kung Fu. At the Shaolin Temple we watched a kung-fu demonstration by the Songyang Academy students displaying amazing martial arts. We had an absolutely incredible day…we would definetly book this excursion again.

        One of the most amazing tours I've ever been on. Miss Lin was so knowledgeable with a beautiful personality and perfect English too. She told me about the entire history of the terracotta solders but also the history of Xi'an and China. As we drove to and from the museum she told me about all of China's dynasties and their history too. I leant more about China in 4 hours with Miss Lin than I learned in the previous 30 odd years. It was absolutely the best tour and book Miss Lin. You definitely wont regret it. Just Don't go during school holidays. 🙂

        This was a wonderfully informative and well-paced trip. Lin was my guide and she was charming and extremely knowledgable, not only about the terracotta soliders, but Chinese history. From the point of pick-up until drop off Lin kept me engaged telling me relevant local and historical information and answering my questions with ease. She also went above and beyond with recommendations and advice for the rest of my stay in Xi'an.

        We took Private Half-Day Tour of Xi’an Terracotta Warriors at 8:00 AM. Guide from “Jeff Ning China Tour” met us in hotel’s lobby and after approximately 50 minutes drive we came to this great place. Our tour guide was very professional, knowledgeable, with a pleasant personality. We learned from him a lot about history, discovery of this unique place and he answered all our questions related to subject and more. We’re very happy with our experience thanks to our guide. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to see Terracotta Warriors!

        Our trip guided by Kelly was nothing short of amazing! Kelly's friendliness and deep understanding of the Terracotta made the tour feel like a personalized journey. With the private transfer she organized, getting to the Terracotta was smooth and hassle-free.

        Amazing tour. Lin is so knowledgeable and so friendly. Not only did a great job giving us a tour of terracotta, took us to some delicious authentic noodle place, and also helped us with a million other things, including small things like bargaining for souvenirs, contacting ticket offices of other tourist attractions for us, and providing plenty of knowledge about the city and planning our trip. Amazing tour and I will definitely use them again if I come to Xi’an in the future.

        Xiexie Crystal for a fantastic private tour of the Terracotta warriors. Crystal helped me to understand the deep history of China and the warriors. She found lots of hidden photo spots and acted like my personal photographer to capture some memories. Perfect communication, great organisation and she was able to customise the tour at the last minute so I could take a train to my next adventure! 5 star experience, thank you Crystal

        I had a fantastic time seeing the Terracotta Warriors. Kelly was a very kind and knowledgeable guide, and even though I'd studied some of the history beforehand, she still provided me with information that only a professional would know. It was quite crowded when we went, but she always knew the best places to go for great views - and it really made a difference. She and the driver went above and beyond to make sure I had a great experience. And due to their efforts, the morning exceeded my already high expectations. Just superb.

        We've had a great experience on this tour.
        Our guide (Lin), taught us much of the amazing story of “Xi’an Terracott Warriors.”
        Then Lin and our private driver took us to an excellent restaurant to have a delicious and very entertaining lunch.
        Thank you very much for this beautiful experience.

        I did a solo trip to Terra Cotta Warriors with Crystal and had a great rime. Shortly after making my reservation, I received a confirmation and I also got a call the night before the tour to make sure everything was set for the next day. The morning of, I was picked up promptly from my hotel and had all my questions answered in depth by the expert guide Crystal, who told me all about the Qing Dynasty, the unification of China and the standardization of the writing system, and the building of the Terra Cotta. I learned a great deal more about Chinese history and the Terra Cotta from the tour guide Crystal than I could’ve learned online and visiting alone. If you’re going to see the 8th Wonder of the World, why not go the extra mile and go an English language tour? Ask for Crystal! She’s very patient, kind, and generous and in-depth with her answers. You won’t regret it!
