“a tour not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

You see thousands of life sizes warriors and horses. A lot have been excavated but many more remain. Each warrior is unique in both facial features & expressions.

This terracotta army has to bee seen to be believed as no words can really discribe it.

“This is Terrific!! Nothing Any Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Ths was so much better than I Imagined. It is amazing that these warriors are still around.
The Chinese Government has done a stellar job of preserving these ancient artifacts.
The buildings that they are housed in is ideal for restoration and presentation.
Note: Most travel books say you cannot take photos inside, Hovever, everyone was doing so. The only place I saw signsfor no photos was where the restoration was taking place.
I did notice any signs at the entrance.

“WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

When I walked into the building my jaw hit the ground, I have, of course, heard about and seen pictures of the terra cotta warriors, but nothing prepares you for this. Thet were fantastic, I was so glad to be here. They are so well sculptured and everyone is different, the view is unbelievable. If you go to China DO NOT MISS THIS!!!!

“4000 year old history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

This expensive trip was not value for money. The 150RMB for the site visit to the 3 pits seems very expensive when you see only 40-50 reconstituted warrior statues.
