Our guide Richard is amazing, ensuring that we have the best experience for this tour by meeting us at our hotel to head to the Terracotta Warriors museum together, giving us a thorough explanation of the history and the details of the artefacts. We wouldn't have understand as much if not because of his explanation and answering all the questions that we have. He even brought us to meet the farmer who discovered the site! A wonderful experience, made possible because we took this tour and with Richard as our guide - I strongly recommend anyone who is visiting Xi'an to do this.

We recommend this transfer 100% Our driver Sun has been excellent. He has been punctual on time waiting for us at the airport. He has brought a little machine that translates instantly so we can communicate perfectly. He offered to take us to eat and helped us get tickets to enter, which are not included in the price. He gave us cold water and snacks, and at the end of the visit he took us to some souvenir shops! Thank you very much for everything Sun! It has been a pleasure :)

Rosa picked me up at the Hotel and we took a Didi to the Terracotta Warrior Museum. On the way she gave me a lot of background of the main dynasties important to Xi’an. When we arrived at the Terracotta museum Rosa gave me a lot of information. Without the tour I wouldn’t have been able to understand the Terracotta warriors and their history.

Very good and comfortable trip. Our guide Zhao Jinfu was very kind and helpful. It was pleasure to spend this time with him. Car and beverages were also very good. Thank you!

The guide Mr. Xia Qingguo was very attentive and kind, excellent car, helped us buy tickets, answered our questions and always helped us with whatever we needed.
