Our group of 4 arrived at Xian for a 3 nights 4 days visit. After months of searching a tour company, a lot of reading the reviews from tripadvisor, I finally chose China Odyssey Tour (COT) It was done with much apprehension but decided to go with my booking since China Odyssey received good reviews from tripadvisor website. After with much detailed discussion with my tour planner, Zoe Zhang, 4 months later, we were on the soil of Xian.
We were greeted by our friendly local guide, Peter and brought without haste to our hotel. After reading all the useful tips from tripadvisor, we booked 2 days with COT as our hotel was within 20 min of walking to the popular Bell Tower and Muslim Street. It was a really a relaxing and fun day of eating and shopping like you were walking in a baazar. Lots and lots of food to try which have been carried down centuries. Some of these Muslims were the descendants from Persia from the OLD SILK ROUTE. We got to try out the numerous eating places. We tried local fast food, cuisines and the one I liked best was the restaurant next to Citadines hotel. The food was one of the best food that I have tasted from my numerous trips to China.
The Terracotta Warriors is really awesome! They have 40,000 of visitors daily to this sight, rain or shine! No words can describe this massive project of Emporer Qin which deserved to be hailed (unofficially) as "The Eighth Wonders of the World". The Hanyang Tombs were not so awesome but still a site not to be missed as it unfolds the mythology of ancient belief of the life after death (Chinese belief) in the netherworld.
COT has done a great job! We were so impressed and everything was so well arranged as stated in the itinerary. Zoe , the consultant, was daily checking on the progress of our tour. I have informed my of my friends about the COT and my next trip will definitely be from COT.
