What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses, Qinling North Road, Lintong District, Xi'an 710600 China

Once your local Xi’an guide picks you up, we’ll travel by air-conditioned public bus for about one hour to the Terracotta Warriors Museum. Here, you’ll get your first introduction to the history, culture and traditions of Xi’an.

As we drive, your guide will tell you about the Warriors, as well as some of the other sightseeing highlights around Xi’an. You’ll also get a quickie lesson in basic Chinese words and daily vocabulary.

Then, we’ll arrive at the mesmerising Terracotta Warriors Museum, home to 8,000 full-sized terracotta sculptures of warriors. These ancient warriors are spread across three burial pits, with the museum building built around the original excavation site. A large number of real bronze weapons are preserved here and some were even chrome-plated by ancient Chinese engineers — so no rust, even after 2,200 years!

After about two hours of visiting this world-famous museum, we’ll go for lunch at a yummy local noodle shop. This is your chance to sample some regional Xi’an food, and will definitely be a highlight! (Don’t worry if you’re vegetarian — we’ll have a veggie-friendly option for you). After lunch, we’ll drive the hour back to Xi’an. As we head back to the city, feel free to ask your local guide for other things to see and do in Xi’an.

This was a great tour. I was lucky enough to have the lovely Dodo to myself. The warriors were amazing, and Dodo had lots of detailed knowledge to share. She then outdid herself by finding the farmer who discovered the warriors. Delicious lunch, great to go on the local bus,

Dodo was an excellent guide, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. On the bus trip, she pointed out some sights along the way and gave us the option to stop off at another location before returning. A local person speaking in Chinese about historical sights closer to the warriors
