This full-day private tour offers you the opportunity to explore the most popular attractions in Xi’an: the City Wall, the Shaanxi History Museum and the Big Wild Goose. Come discover the city's culture and history with your knowledgeable guide.
What to Expect
Your full-day tour starts with morning pick-up at your hotel and a comfortable drive in a private climate-controlled vehicle to reach your first destination, the Shaanxi History Museum.
Learn about the province's history and culture as your guide takes you through the museum, which features detailed exhibits that date from the time of 2nd-Century BC Emperor Qin Shi Huang, Ming Dynasty-era statues and more. Then continue to Big Wild Goose Pagoda, a Buddhist temple from the Tang Dynasty in 652, that was built to enshrine sacred statues and religious texts brought from India to China. The seven-story pyramid stands at its center and reaches 210 feet (64 meters) high. Take a break for an authentic Chinese lunch, then walk off your meal as you check out the oldest section of the city's ancient walls. The walls extend in total nearly nine miles (14 kilometers) around the old city, punctuated by gateways and massive towers that guarded against intruders. Then travel over to the Great Mosque. Your guide explains how the mosque's design follows traditional Chinese architectural style. The mosque was built during the Tang Dynasty, and in the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, extensive pavilions, platforms and halls were added to the impressive grounds.
After your full-day guided tour, sit back and enjoy a relaxing drive back to your hotel.
