          You are going to see 2,000 life size Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses in a real battle formation. It was buried underground over 2,200 years and were made for protecting the Qin Emperor's afterlife. The visit of the museum covers three pits in original sites: Pit 1 as the principal combating force, Pit 2 as the mechanized troupe and Pit 3 as its underground command center. Extra exhibitions also could be seen in the museum, like Bronze Chariots found about 20ms to the west of the emperor's mausoleum, terra cotta acrobat figures and some bronze weapons.

          Five Star Tour!!
          Would highly recommend this tour! We had a fantastic time and are so pleased we booked it. Michael contacted us prior to our trip to confirm all details and kindly share recommendations of what to see in Xi’an city upon arrival. The tour itself was fantastic; Michael and driver arrived promptly and the vehicle was clean and comfortable. Michael is so friendly and his knowledge of the city and tour destinations was extensive, happily answering all of our many questions. Michael kindly brought snacks for the journey and organised an authentic Xi’an lunch which was delicious. Thank you Michael and driver. Five stars!!!!

          Excellent food tour in Xi’an
          Michael was a marvelous guide on this tour through Xi’an’s culinary world. As a long time resident of the city he provided insights on the city and the food I was eating. The food itself was delicious and included dishes like the pita bread lamb soup, soup dumplings, and the renowned Xi’an burger. I can highly recommend this tour to anybody who seeks to taste Xi’an’s signature food and an evening in great company.

          An experience well worth it!
          Very informative tour, with an excellent range of Xi'an cuisine sampled throughout, in various sections of the city. I didn't spend a lot of time in Xi'an, but this gastronomic tour was definitely well worth it!

          5 star experience for all age groups
          We booked a last minute tour with Michael two nights before our trip to xi'an. I was initially worried about our small group that varies in age, fitness and language differences. But Michael made it so fun and interactive. My parents loved chatting about ancient China's history with Michael and discussing real estate development around the city. My husband enjoyed making jokes together with Michael and being introduced with all types of xi'an famous snacks and noodles. Michael is genuine, thoughtful, hard working and respectful. So does our driver Mr. Ting. The trip was seamless - we did a lot in one day, Huashan west peak, east peak, different restaurants and terracotta. I would recommend Michael to all my friends.

          One of the best food tours out there. Michael was informative, kind, and always helpful. His knowledge of the local cuisine was impressive, and he knew the best places to try each dish. He accommodated dietary restrictions and happily answered all my questions. Highly recommend this tour!

          A must do (especially with Michael)
          Michael emailed us a few days prior to the trip recommending we ask the hotel for a breakfast bag as we were leaving early (I highly recommend you choose the earliest time slot). He arrived at our hotel promptly and even brought some local steamed buns for us to try. His knowledge of both sites was incredible and he spoke brilliant English which made it even easier. Not only did we have a great time, we have also made a friend and will be staying in touch. If you are in Xi’an, this is a tour you HAVE to do!

          Top Xian experience
          No doubt, this is our best experience in Xian! All thanks to Michael. The museum was amazing, but to visit it with Michael truly elevate the whole experience. He is very friendly and knowledgeable, a true story teller. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend this visit with Michael, were you a history lover or not.

          The best tour in Xi’an!
          This was by far the best tour I experienced! Michael picked me up on time at my hotel and even delivered breakfast and snacks for the day. He is very friendly and we had a nice chat while driving to Mt. Huashan. At the mountain he organized the tickets and we went up - he told me a lot about the history of the mountain and showed me the best spots for pictures (he also takes pictures of you if you want to). After the mountain we went to the Terracotta Army museum. He knows a lot about their history and showed me very interesting details / pictures about them. Afterwards he drove me to the airport and on the way there he made a quick stop to show me some more attractions of the city. It was an amazing day! If you want to see the best of Xi’an with an amazing guide you definitely should book Michael’s tour!

          Solo Traveller in Xi'an
          Amazing experience…I am from the United States and traveling alone, so finding people n sites to trust is not easy……. However, I am very grateful that I found Michael Chang who was very kind, knowledgeable and had many stories to tell of each of our locations. The food he took me to try was delicious and he went even further and out of his way to take me to a few city hot spots. I absolutely recommend you ask for Michael!

          Great night food in Xian with Michael
          Fantastic food tour in Xian! We went to 5 different restaurants in Yongxingfang and the Muslim Quarter and I cannot say which was the best! Travelling around by tuk tuk was very fun! Michael was excellent, explained everything in detail and I learned a lot. Great food, great evening. Highly recommended!

          What a wonderful day in Xian
          Great day - both Huashan Mt and Terra Cotta are worth the trip. Our guide Michael provided very interesting info and details in a perfect English, with focus on our points of interest (history + life in current China) It was like visiting beautiful scenery and museum with a long time friend!! Can only recommend !

          The best experience of Xi’an!
          We had the most amazing day with Addison as our guide visiting Xi’an’s Terracotta museum, having a unique 2000 year old traditional lunch, discovering the Old Wall, and exploring the Muslim Quarter and the Grand Mosque of Xi’an! Addison is so knowledgeable, kind, funny, experienced and professional during the whole tour. We recommend him to everyone because he is really excellent! We look forward to go to other tours with him next time we are back in China. Thank you Addison!

          Excellent food tour
          I've done food tours in almost every major city in China, and I can say that this one ranks among the best. Our guide was super knowledgeable, warm and accommodating. We visited several places eating an array of excellent dishes, and there was always plenty of food. If you're in Xi'an don't hesitate to book this tour!

          Fantastic Xi'an flavours with Michael
          Our group decided to go for the food tour with Michael, and we had a fantastic experience. He introduced us to Xi'an flavours and history in a relaxed way allowing us to enjoy every second. Michael adjusted the restaurants to meet our group preferences and needs as we combined meat lovers and vegetarians on the same tour. The tuk-tuk ride was a great way to see all the street vendors and get a gist of all the food options available. Highly recommend this tour.
