What is the question? Do you want to know how to get to Xian from Beijing? You can either fly or take the train. I hope you are not coming during the first week of Oct.

Hi... you can go Xi'an from Beijing by flight or by train, by flight take 2 hours, you can take centre of city hotels, such as bell tower xi'an hotel, near the hotel has some place to visit, such as drum tower, bell tower an moslem street. I think not need guide or driver, you can go around by bus. If you want to go to the far place you can go with tour or driver

I am confused with your question. Do you want to visit any one of them or both. If you have to choose one, I suggest you to visit Beijing which has 72-hour visa free stay. In these three days, you can visit the most must-see attractions such as Forbidden City, Great Wall, Summer Palace, Hutong areas, Lama Temple.

You may arrange one day tour to xian.

Early morning the flight ca1203( 7:30-9:30p.m), terra-cotta warriors museum( 2.5 hours inside the museum), have lunch to a local restaurant near by, then you can visit the Big wild goose pagoda, city wall and the Han yang tomb, send you to the airport at 7:30p.m to take flight at 9:00p.m back to Beijing again.

Hope this can help

If you only want to see warriors,you can make a one-day-tour.take a plane to Xi'an from Beijing,If you hire a guide and tour car,they will wait for you in airport and pick up you to warriors museum,and have a lunch in museum then go back airport and take a plane to go back Beijing in the evening.

Actually,the tourist usually stay three days in Xi'an,here have long history, root of China.we have City Wall,and Big Wild Goose Pagoda,and so on
