I’ve toured all over Asia & this was one of the best. Eddie was knowledgeable & accommodating and the driver was always quick and safe. I was one of the first tourists in Pit 1 and during a National holiday, no less! If you want a guide who knows the terrain, offers suggestions & always has a great attitude, this is the tour for you. The Terracotta Warriors are a must-see for everyone.

Eddie was brilliant to see the tremendous sights of Xian, fully packed tour with detailed information and support to go around the historic marvels of the city. The best way to see Xian and especially when you don’t know mandarin !

An amazing day which blew me away with how intricate and beautiful the terracotta warriors were. I went with my girlfriend ( we are British). We went by ourselves and didn’t use a tour guide. Getting in is very simple but right now you CANNOT book tickets online. When you arrive you will be pulled aside to check your passport details as you won’t have a Chinese ID. No problem for me as I’ve been used to this in China for many years. When you get to the ticket office you can pay with WeChat now or cash. For 2 adults we paid ¥240RMB. We arrived at 11am ( not early birds) and there was a queue but nothing major. Your ticket will be checked to get into the park and then again about a few hundred meters later just before the dig sites. There are 3 pits all together, and I URGE people to see pit 1 LAST as this is the most impressive one to see. It is huge and the warriors are outstanding. There is a big walkway all around the warriors so there are infinite chances to take photographs. Bring a good camera for Pit 2 and 3 as they are a little dark. All in all it took us about 2 hours to walk round all 3 will a little break for some snacks. Be prepared there will be many tour groups there the same time as you, and they may be a bit pushy when it comes to the perfect picture angle. An absolutely outstanding day and we enjoyed every minute of it!!

Amazing experience. We explored the Terracotta Army by ourselves, without a guide. We got there early (8:30am) and there weren’t too many people. If you are not a Chinese National or not part of a tour group, you will need CASH to purchase your ticket (120yuan) as there is no weChat pay or Alipay option that are the most common forms of payment in China.
