Recently recommended by TIME magazine, National Geographic Traveller, Vogue...

Recently recommended by TIME magazine, National Geographic Traveller, Vogue and ELLE Magazine across 38 countries; you can trust us when it comes to off the beaten path adventures in comfort. Let your insider guide take you around Xian in a quaint 1950's convertible jeep. Xi'an, at the very beginning point of the Silk Road, hides marvelous relics of various cultural influences in a unique green and hilly landscape. Either to assist to Red and Big Pandas family reunions, make a stop in a beautiful winery for a wine tasting session, climb to inhabited caves or discover China's oldest Christian building, just let us know what you're interested in and we'll take you there through small villages and narrow roads. An experienced foreign guide will open the way, rides go from half day to two days. Expeditions are family-friendly

We had a wonderful day with Rocky touring some of the rural areas outside of Xi'an in addition to visiting the Terracotta Warriors. We visited the warriors in the afternoon when most of the tourists were leaving, so we were able to see and experience the pits without all of the people who are there in the morning. He knows...

This was one of our best experiences in China. Rocky who picked us up at our hotel promptly at 7:30, was our tour guide and he was personable, spoke English very well and was extremely knowledgeable. We had really interesting discussions all day long. We saw so many sights and places that we would never have if it had not... More

I did a 2 days tour with Xi'an Insider and I highly recommend this tour to all who love to see what Xi'an has to offer off the beaten track. Travelling in the jeep and exploring Xi'an mountains, having gin tonic in the courtyard of a 400 years old cave dwelling, visiting a temple that was originally built 13,000 years... More

I had previously taken an Insider's tour in Shanghai so when I came back to China I knew it was A MUST to have an authentic experience of the Xi'an countryside. What can l say, but it actually exceeded my expectations on so many levels. Yes, touring the Terracotta Warriers with my guide Rocky was unbelievable... But what really blew... More

I must admit that I didn't know what to expect on my jeep tour of Xian when I first met Rocky. He stood out immediately in the hotel lobby, cowboy style hat and boots, a US navy t-shirt. He looked like he was in the Special Forces and not a tour guide. But what an incredible guide he turned out... More

We did the Warrior Tour, with tour guide Rocky behind the steering wheel. Before the Warriors we visited the Xi'an countryside, including a blacksmith, farmer and cave dweller. We then had a lovely lunch, using the freshest ingredients, cooked by locals. Rocky even brought along a bottle of wine! The Warriors were our main reason for visiting Xi'an and they... More
