We had a great time with our tour guide Lin. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable. More importantly, she was extremely helpful with our kids - we were travelling with our almost 3 year old and 9 month old and had 2 strollers with us. Not only did she help carry the stroller up and down the stairs, she interacted with our older son and also helped carry our infant at times as well! Lin also provided tips and recommendations for the rest of our stay in Xi’an.

The driver was very pleasant as well. The van was a bit old, but was comfortable.

We definitely recommend the tour to others.

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.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The size of the exhibition is mind blowing. But with our very knowledgeable and wonderful guide Lin, it was a perfect way for us to experience this wonderful historical site. She made it very easy for us to get around, understand all the detail and background and really enjoy it to the fullest. Also the after the tour following lunch was very entertaining and delicious. Thank you, Lin!

If you want easy and hassle free then this tour is ideal - our guide Dodo was friendly and helpful. Useful information on the way there and then key facts as you walk round. Start of January is a good time to go - no crowds!! Lunch and tea tasting was a fun addition!

Our tour guide Linda was excellent and we strongly recommed, very informative and knowledgeble and her english was spotlessly clear!
We did the afternoon tour and we had a delicious beef noodle afterwards, recommended by Linda. Probably the best noodles I have tasted in China! Everything was great although we find that the tour is a bit overpriced for the actual time spent, we strongly recommend it for someone who is on limited time in Xi'an.

We had Tina as our guide who picked us up at our hotel in the morning. She was very chatty and as a local she told a lot about the history of Xi’an, which we liked!

When we arrived at the site we were able to meet one of the farmers who found the first soldiers (got ourselves a selfie with him!) and while at the different pits Tina gave us a lot of information we wouldn’t have gotten out of the books and/or audio guide.

After this she took us to a great local restaurant that had amazing biang biang noodles and we loved the local pineapple beer they had.

We’d definitely recommend Tina and this tour for anyone who wants to see the Terracotta Army and wants to take their time to see everything.

The tour was booked with Jeff who was very helpful. On the day of the excursion, we were picked up from our hotel promptly in the morning and driven to the warriors. Lily, our guide, was very knowledgable and could answer questions we had. She was very patient as we had a very fidgety four year old with us. We were very happy with the experience and felt the tour was tailored to our needs. We got exactly what we asked for and we did not feel any pressure to buy souvenirs. We highly recommend Lily and Jeff.
