Owner description: China Odyssey Tours Xi'an branch office.I bet Terracotta Army sounds familiar to you, its location as well, maybe. Yes, we are talking about Xian-one of world's top four ancient capitals, a must for first-time travelers to China. Traveling to the place where Chinese civilization flourished and reached its climax, we are definitely expecting more. Beyond the Terracotta Army, we have the best-preserved Ancient City Wall, the iconic Big Goose Pagoda which directed by monk Xuan Zang, fabulous Tang Dynasty Show etc. Oh! Do count the Jiaozi Banquet in, I never knew Jiaozi could have almost 20 different flavors and be presented in such an exquisite way. Night is still young, how about a time travel back to 1400 years ago? Wander along the Great Tang All Day Mall, the glamour and prosperity of Tang Dynasty are out there waiting for you.

I was lucky enough to visit Xi'an and see the marvellous Terra Cotta Soldiers. The experience was made everso pleasant by the Odyssey Tours and especially our tour guide Helen. Odyssey Tours were excellent in organising airport transfers, 5-star hotels and easy entry to site seeing venues. We were very lucky to have Helen as our tour guide. The service provided to us by Helen was beyond what is expected from normal tour guides. She added another dimension by providing us with drinks, ice cream and fresh fruit at at her own expense. The weather was very hot during our stay in Xi'an but Helen made it bearable by adding that extra bit of care. Thank you Odyssey Tours and a very big Thank You to Helen

We had a great tour guide provided by Odessy tours in Xi'an Having been looking forward to this trip the terracotta warriors were on top of our list. Amazing how well everything has been restored to keep for future generation! We also enjoyed the Bell tower and the City Wall.The weather was great, so we had a really great time. A lovely meal and a great massage finished our first day in Xi'an. A destination not to be missed!

Xian was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend visiting the Shaanxi Museum and hiring a private guide/researcher to take you through the frescoes on the lower level. We were lucky to have Prof Wang available. He really explained and showed us the intricacies of each painting, interpreting them to better understand the culture at that time. It was amazing. Without someone to explain, you'll miss out on the best information. We also visited a local elementary school which was really enjoyable. I also suggest setting up a private noodle/dumpling hands-on workshop. The entire family had fun making our own noodles (which we sample during lunch)! Henry was an awesome tour guide who is very knowledgeable about Xian and China's history.

I didn't like this city in particular. There was so much traffic and smog. However, the Terracotta Warriors are so worth it as was the Hangyang Tombs. We also at a meal in the home of someone who lives there which was a great experience. Our guide Evan was knowledgable and helped to make the trip even more enjoyable.

My family and I we had a fantastic experience with Eric in Xi´an. We did all the major atractions i.e. Terracota Warriors, The Wall around Xi´an, The Bell Tower , Muslim quarter. Odyssey took care of us since our arrival at the airport till our departure to Guilin. We experienced real local food and also did some shopping around.The Terracota Warriors was the pick of the visit. Definetely a must do attraction
