          Terracotta Warriors Photography Visit.
          We had the best time! Our guide Linda made sure we made the most of our visit. Linda was very friendly, very well informed and she was able to guide us to lots of great spots for photography.

          Tina was a great guide, very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend having a tour with her. She was able to customize the tour to meet my needs.

          The HIGHLIGHT of our three week China trip
          If you're wondering whether to do it yourself or get a guide I'd 100% recommend getting one, some of the best sites are quite far out of the city, and the history is best explained by Lilly. (This is coming from someone who speaks and reads basic Chinese!) We had a two day flexible private tour with Lilly, who is from Xian herself and she was absolutely outstanding. Chinese history is long and complicated, but everything was easily explained and made sense. We went to the terracotta museum but also another tomb called hang yang ling where there were no crowds whatsoever and an even better preserved mini army. On the second day we went to Hua Shan, which was a stunning hike with spectacular view. We couldn't get tickets to the west peak because of high winds on the top, but had a fantastic climb and hike from the north peak) During our time in Xian also did a day by ourselves and it was nowhere near as good as the two days with Lilly. Lilly's English is exceptional, et en plus, elle parle aussi couramment français!

          Recommended guide for a great day!
          We did a full day tour with driver and guide Lilly. Lilly was super friendly, flexible and gave great suggestions for the tour, which we gladly followed. Her English is near perfect, which of course helped with her great service. The driver was also curtious and helpful with an excellent, rather new and clean comfortable car. So in short, we really enjoyed our day with Lilly and would recommend her anytime!

          Excellent and Professional Xian Tour - Recommended
          It was a perfect and wonderful private tour with Linda, our tour guide. We visited Terracotta Warriors and Huaqing Hotspring and watched the show Legend of Camel Bell. Linda provided a lot of knowledge and information. She is also very friendly and well organised. Although we were exhausted and traveled with children in a warm day, we still had a pleasant time.

          1500 miles on the high speed train all the high lights of the Terracotta Warriors in just a day
          What a perfect day organized by Mason from the Terracotta Warriors tour. Not by plane from Beijing - but much better - in Biz Class by high speed train. The train is part of the perfect experience. Faster and much comfortable and on time to the second! Got to Beijing West not he train in the morning, and picked up by my tour guide Linda Guo in Xian. Linda is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional who made the trip into a non-stressed event, still seeing and enjoying everything what's there to see. A big shout out to Linda. After a perfect day dropped off at exactly the right time at Xi'an train station. Boarded the train and slept all way to Beijing. Returned late, but relaxed.

          Wonderful guide Linda
          Linda was an amazing tour guide. She was excited to share with us the history of the Terracotta Warriors, the Pagoda and the City Wall. She was professional and spoke English very well. I highly recommend booking with Linda as your guide.

          A great way to experience Xi’an
          This is the best tour you can take to experience Xi’an. Be sure to ask for Linda as your guide. She is super! We started with the Terra-cotta Warriors and learned the fascinating history. The tour was fascinating. Then Linda helped us select other sights to see including the city wall, Pagoda and a really cool live show (with camels and wolves!). Having a private car and driver was really a bonus: no waiting with crowds and crowded buses. The tour was worth every penny. I highly recommend it.

          A day in Xian
          Spent an amazing day visiting the Terra-cotta warriors and the highlights of Xian. Our tour guide Linda was extremely knowledgeable on Chinese history and has excellent English. We also saw the bell tower, drum tower and we loved Muslim street - a must see for authentic food and culture. We finished the day (@ Linda’s suggestion) at the Silk Road performance- a truly unforgettable experience with real camels and wolves! Linda and our driver Li were exceptional.

          Learnt so much about Chinese history
          If you're a solo traveller like me and wondering if you should go on a tour or visit the attractions by yourself, I'd recommend going on a tour! As nothing beats having someone local to interact with and learn about the city beyond the places of attraction. I'm lucky to have Jessie Zhang, my local tour guide born and raised in Xi'an, who has been in this profession for 20 over years and speaks fluent English. She is knowledgeable and provided detailed information about the dynasties, emperors and Terracotta warriors. The tour also comes with a driver and it is so flexible, I didn't need to decide on the itinerary right from the morning and we really made plans on the go. Jessie also gave good recommendations for local speciality food. Overall, I had a lovely time on this one-day private tour and would definitely recommend Jessie to my friends and family if they visit Xi'an!

          Terracotta Warriors Tour company and their guide Linda are the best!
          Working with Terracotta Warriors Tour was great. Olivia was very responsive and worked with us to tailor this tour for our schedule to see the show one night and tour the other day. Olivia also gave us a superb guide, Linda and an amazing driver for the entire time we were in Xian. Linda, a local from Xian, was of course very knowledgeble about the history of this area and the Terracotta Warriors. She spoke excellent English, was very easy to understand and could not have managed the day more perfectly for us to see far more than we had even hoped would be possible. This was quite a feat, especially for our incredible driver navigating road closures due to the Chinese New Year celebrations and icy conditions. She selected a great restaurant near the Warriors Museum, whose staff was great as was the food and tea that Linda suggested. Linda also showed us numerous areas within the old city walls, which were added highlights to the day. Hats off to the Terracotta Warriors Tour Company and to the guide Linda and the driver they had for us. We had a perfect day, ending with the Tang Dynasty dinner show with the most ideal seats in the house!

          Tina was Great.
          Tina was my tour guide on this excursion. She was kind, knowledgeable and easygoing. I was able to see the Terra Cotta Warriors, and two additional options; I picked the city wall and the Wild Goose Pagoda. Tina made the whole day smooth and fun.

          Terracotta Warriors and Huaqing Palace
          Linda was an amazing guide for us today. She was friendly, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. Her knowledge of Chinese history and the history of the sites (Terracotta Warriors / Huaqing Palace) made them come alive and enhanced our experience today. We had an amazing time! I highly recommend Linda as a tour guide :)

        Eddie our guide met us at designated time in the hotel lobby. We set of to see the terra-cotta warriors and Eddie provided us with a brief history. On arrival Eddie knew all the short cuts to whisk us around the museum a head of the crowds. The next stop was the old goose pagoda followed by a fantastic authentic local cuisine lunch. We then had a wander around the wall prior to returning to our hotel
        We throughly recommend this tour.
        Eddie was a great guide.

        This one day tour was excellent. We had plenty of time to visit the warriors and the other sites. You get to see a lot in just one day. Our tour guide, Celine, was wonderful. She speaks English very well and was a wealth of knowledge. She was extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend this tour.

        We first met our frantic tour guide, Rosa, as we were having breakfast at out hotel. The Xi'an Marathon was that day and she was very concerned that they might close the street in front of the hotel thus depriving us of the tour to the Terracotta Warriors, the City Wall and the Muslim Square. Not to fear, we got on the road without incident and spent a splendid day with a very charming and knowledgeable Rosa. She knew many shortcuts to sights and had a very well thought out approach to how to structure the day. Rosa was disarmingly funny and all 5 of us commented on how much we enjoyed spending time with her. We have done many tours in many countries and Rosa was one of our favorites.

        My family and I chose to visit Xi’an so our children would get to see the Terracotta Warriors and experience Chinese culture and learn more about Chinese civilisation. Tina was our guide who met us early in the morning and stayed with us all the way till the end of the day. She was flexible and gave us the choices of what we could cover during the tour, helped us understand the key events in Chinese history during the tour, and provided us with translation help when we needed it. We were especially touched that she went the extra mile and advised us about the importance of collecting our tickets in advance for the bullet train that we were taking early the next day. She even guided us all the way! We could not have asked for a better guide! We are deeply appreciative of the special help that we received. Thank you so much!

        Our tour guide Sunny Liu really lived up to her first name! She was prompt and communicative. She knows so much about Chinese History and the City of Xi'an, which she presented in a captivating way. She made us feel like friends, we felt like we could ask her anything we wanted. We're very happy we booked through this service, and wholeheartedly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience this historical city through the lens of a local.
