Wendy is a great tour guide! We only did one day with her but it was really good. She's really knowledgeable, friendly and organized. She is so helpful - right off the bat, she suggested a good itinerary, even went above and beyond helping us to book tickets and transportation for a show, and arranging for the driver to help us pick up our tickets, even though it wasn't part of the tour.

We went to the Terracotta Warriors together, and she really knows her history. We learned a lot walking around with her. She's so personable and has such a lot of good recommendations, including bringing us to a delicious noodle house for lunch...a bowl of noodle (yes, just one noodle!) as tall as you! My kids loved that!

If you're going around Xian, I would definitely look up Wendy to help with your planning and touring.

My family visited Xian for three days at the beginning of July 2021. We wanted to maximize our time and make it more interesting for our kids so we reached out to Wendy based on her reviews. While maybe a little pricier than others, she really added a lot to our trip and I would recommend her to others.

Some highlights:
* She was able to share a lot of history about the terra-cotta warriors to make it much more interesting for our twelve year old twins.
* She was able to use her connections to get us tickets to the Shaanxi museum and a show on short notice, even though both were sold out online for over a week.
* She spent hours talking to us about our plans and giving us ideas before we even committed to using her as our guide. Other companies wouldn’t invest that much time without committing to use them.

While we don’t have any plans to go back to Xian in the near future, I’d recommend her to any of my friends that asked.

We traveled to Xi’an over the May 2021 holiday in China. Having heard from multiple friends and colleagues that having an experienced guide for the Terracotta Warriors is a must, we reached out to Wendy for a half-day tour.

Wendy was fantastic — incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, and enthusiastic. In addition to offering a great overview of how and why the warriors were built during the Qin Dynasty, she also shared so many little details about the excavation process and current restoration efforts, fascinating tidbits of Chinese history, among many others. We wouldn’t have known any of this information without her, as the Terracotta Warriors Museum has very limited information about the collection. Without a guide, the terracotta warriors might have even been a little underwhelming (if you don’t know the history, the little anecdotes, or what to look out for, you miss details and they all start to look the same.) Wendy really brought them to life. I highly recommend her!

My wife and I decided to work with Wendy for a private tour of the Terracotta Warriors and museum, a must see stop for any visit to Xi’an. We were incredibly impressed by Wendy’s attention to detail in getting us the access required to visit the site. Due to ever changing Covid-related travel restrictions, traveling in China at present can be difficult. Luckily, Wendy ensured we had no problems making it there. It was amazing!! Wendy’s knowledge of the Warriors, and Chinese history and culture in general, was an added bonus. It really helped put the site into perspective and gave it a greater meaning. In addition, Wendy went well out of her way to help us in getting tickets to the Shaanxi History Museum, a show, and pointed out great restaurants and things to do in the city, making our stay the best it possibly could be. We fully recommend Wendy if you plan on visiting Xi’an - we certainly will when we go back for out next trip!

Wendy was a super friendly, organized, and knowledgeable guide who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone! With her help, I was able to explore Huashan, the Terra Cotta Warriors, the Song of Everlasting Sorrow, the Xi'an Museum, and a lot of awesome local restaurants. Her advice was always spot-on and she was always available for consultation over WeChat if I had any random questions (and, of course, her in-person tour of the Terra Cotta Warriors was excellent). Highly recommended!

Myself and my friend visited back in May 2019 after trekking the great wall for a charity event, we caught the overnight train to Xian where we were greeted by a friendly well organised driver & Wendy. Wendy was aware we were only in town for one whole day & wanted to see everything. And that we did! Wendy had made sure our allocated time was well suited so we could look at the terracotta Warriors Museum, we were shown the Bell Tower, The wild goose pagoda and also the temples associated, everything was translated for us for better understanding. We had the most amazing lunch & were lucky enough to meet one of the gentlemen who found the warriors. Wendy has a fantastic Chinese background, full of knowledge, a beautiful friendly face, that really left an impression on us to want to return to Xian, this was the most favourite part of our China trip. We cannot thank you enough Wendy, you really had served us everything we could have possibly wanted and in a safe and comfortable manner. TOURISTS WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED...

Amazing tour and great guide! If you are questioning whether it is worth getting a guide, just do it. Wendy was amazing, she kept in contact with me prior to the tour and gave me very detailed directions. Wendy met us inside of the train station, which was extremely helpful. We were able to customize the tour so that we saw as much as we could and were back at the train station at the end of the day to head back to Beijing. Wendy was super knowledgeable and provided much appreciate information about Xi’an and China overall. Both Wendy and the driver were extremely friendly and accommodating to our party.

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Wendy! Wendy is absolutely the top rated guide! She is incredibly knowledgeable about Chinese history, kind, outstanding and very informative. She gave us plenty of time to see the Terracotta Warriors and gave us great suggestions on where to visit based on our needs. She has arranged a seven seats van just for three of us and her driver has provided us a very comfortable and safe trip. She also helped us to booked the tickets for the history museum and Xian City Wall. We highly recommend Wendy!

Wendy is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable.

She communicated with us before the trip to be sure we were prepared and then took her time explaining the history of each attraction.

We stopped and had a delicious lunch.

Overall, Wendy is a wonderful guide and we highly recommend her when visiting Xi'an!

Amazing full day private tour with Wendy last week! She was prompt, punctual, very well informed, well spoken, and overall a really great guide to us! She made our day in Xian very worthwhile. She was also very accommodating as we traveled with a 3 year old. I highly recommend a tour with Wendy to make the most of your time in Xian!
