About
Have a chance to fully experience the charm of this ancient city. Beside the classic trip to Terracotta Warriors Museum, you may cycle on the City Wall and see the hustle of the city center. Go to the Bell Tower and listen to the sound made from the old bell. Stroll in the Muslim Quarter, spoil your stomach with all kinds of snacks. In the next day, dig a little further to visit the Jingdi’s Tomb, climb on the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, and learn about the Chinese calligraphy and paintings in a cultural street.

Great 2 days in Xian
Oct 2019
I travelled with my husband and 3 kids (10,8,5), I was a little worried at first due to the kids age and attention. However our guide Jackie made it so easy. It kept the childrens attention with lots of 'fun facts'. We saw some amazing sites, Terracotta warriors, Xian city wall, Big Goose Pagoda and so much more. We go to taste some local cuisine. I would not travel any other way, I would highly recommend this tour for families, it is so worth it.

Two Fantastic Days in Xi’an
Sep 2019 • Friends
Our tour guide Cathy was absolutely fantastic. Her English was fantastic and her knowledge of her home town of Xi’an. She was able to adapt our tour schedule between the two days to accommodate our pace (spent a bit longer than normal at the Terra Cotta Soldiers Museum), and weather (rained the second day. She fearlessly led us through the Muslim Food Street and knew the best ways to get us in and out of the sites quickly. Can’t say enough about this tour. Must do.

Xi'an Tour
Jun 2019
Xi'an is an excellent place to visit to see the China's past. President Xi once said, "If you want to see past of China, visit Xi'an; if you want to see China's today visit Beijing; and if you want to see future of China visit Shanghai." I am truly impressed by the city and its people. I did not hire services except a tour guide at the Tetra Cotta Soldiers site. It takes about 45 minutes from city to site, so taxi will cost around 200 yuan. I stayed in the Holiday Inn very close to Wild Goose Pagoda and everything was close.

Very Informative & interesting
Our guide Jackie brought the history of Xi'an to life. He gave a very informative tour of the Terracotta Soliders and spent time explaining the time line of historical events- a lot to take in! He took us to a local resturant and carefully helped with the food selection - which was great - but big portions! Our time was well spent on the tour with plenty of time for photos and questions. The second day was spent in within and on the city walls , exploring the Musilim quarter and Big Goose Pagoda .Yes you could do this yourself but would miss out on the information well explained by Jackie.
We were pleased with the tour , and grateful that the time was well judged and fortunate that our holiday was at a quieter period so not as many tourists so we were able to to get close to the sights.
Great to have the personal touch, Jackie spoke good English, so communication was easy. Thank you

Excellent Tour Experience
Mar 2019 • Couples
We had booked the Two Day Xian Heritage Tour with Lily's Tours. Our tour booking and communications with Ms. Lily Sun via email were all very professionally and promptly handled.

We had booked airport transfers as well and our driver Mr. Wong was waiting outside the airport to receive us and he made us very comfortable. Mr. Wong was our driver for our entire two days in Xian and he was an exemplary driver and very friendly and helpful to us.

We met our guide Michael on the morning of our tour and we had a wonderful two day experience with him. He not only explained the sights and the history of the places we were visiting but he also gave us a lot of insight into the cultural and social lives of the people of the country. He was warm and friendly and spoke excellent English. He went out of his way to make sure that our food preferences were accommodated even after the tour ended and we were on our own.

It was an overall wonderful experience and we would not hesitate to recommend the Tour, the guide and our driver to anyone travelling to Xian.

Trip Advisor Review: Lily’s Tours

Three of us spent three nights in Xi’an. We arranged our own flights from Hong Kong and the hotel. On Monday, we were picked up at the airport and taken to our hotel by one of Lily’s drivers, and on Thursday, the same driver took us back to the airport.

In between, we were treated to a great tour, lead by Jackie with driver Dan-dan (uncertain spelling). On Tuesday, we saw the sights of Xi'an: the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, the bell tower, and the Beilin Museum—also known as the Steles Forest—were the highlights.

On Wednesday, Jackie took us first to the Terracotta Warriors Museum and then to the Han Yanling Museum.

Entrance fees were all included except for the Beilin Museum, which was not in the original itinerary, but Jackie was happy to accommodate our request to enter as my wife was keen to see the stele.

All the while, Jackie provided a constant stream of explanation of what we were looking at and its place in Chinese history. Jackie was knowledgeable and unfailingly cheerful.

Although we stopped for lunch on both days, the cost of lunch was not included, which suited us as it meant we could choose what we wanted to eat. We didn't really like the choice of restaurant in Xi’an, but the place in Lintong was excellent.

The cars LT provided were clean and comfortable and the driving was professional, unlike some of the others on the road.

I should mention that Mary suffered a bad allergy attack, which is apparently not uncommon in Xi’an though our weather was quite clear, so we curtailed our explorations in the city to allow her some rest back at the hotel. Obviously, Jackie couldn't do anything about this. I would advise taking suitable preventative action if you are sensitive to dust and pollution.

The communication between us and Lily while we planned the tour was very good—very important to ensure all the ducks are lined up so there are no issues getting the Chinese visa sorted.

The things that were not good about our visit weren't Jackie’s fault. We were very happy with our visit to Xi’an and the service provided by Jackie and everyone at Lily’s Tours. We can unreservedly recommend them for your trip to see Terracotta Warriors and the other sights of the city.

Excellent tour!
Oct 2018 • Family
Our tour guide Jackie made our experience in Xian a great one. He was attentive to our group of 6, ranging in age from 8 to 77. We went at the end of the Golden Week, so he structured our itinerary to ensure we avoided the crowds as much as possible. Every part of the tour was excellent, and Jackie had a wealth of knowledge about Xi'an. We had authentic local food, found clean and western toilets (so important for us!), and we saw all the sights in a short space of time without feeling rushed or tired.

Fantastic trip to Xi'an
Jun 2018 • Family
My family and I visited China in the first week of June, 2018. Our stay in Xi'an was thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. Xi'an is an amazing place to visit, rich in history and tradition. A very special mention has to be made of our tour guide Michael Chang. Michael is such an enthusiastic, friendly and ever-smiling person who spoke excellent English. We were impressed by his knowledge and patience in answering all our questions. Michael has a great sense of humor and made ours' such a fun visit. He is such a warm and affectionate guy that we became good friends in a very short time! It was pretty hot and every now and then he would dash off and return with bottles of water, even without our asking! on Day2 when the kids wanted to cycle on the city wall early in the morning he readily obliged and was there on the dot and happily escorted them. His concern that we board our flight safely (as there was heavy rain at the tail end of our trip) was truly touching. To anyone planning a trip to Xi'an I would hands down recommend that you arrange for Michael to be your guide. His will definitely make your visit memorable! I must commend Lily for running a most efficient guide service. We had the pleasure of meeting Lily in person and she came across as a very warm and charming lady. At every place we visited, our pick up and drop off were on time. All our guides, Luis (in Beijing), Michael (in Xi'an) and Eric (in Zhangjiajie) were simply excellent. I would certainly recommend Lily's tour services to all my friends and anyone reading this review! Thanks a million Lily!

Two day Heritage Tour of Xi'an with Lily
Jun 2018 • Solo
I am from England and went to Xi'an to see the Terracotta Warriors having seen a documentary on the television.
As Lily's Tours have a two day Heritage Tour, I booked the two days to include the Terracotta Warriors (a sight to behold), the city wall, a traditional cave dwelling, the Shu Yuanmen Culture Street, the Hangyangling Museum, the Wild Goose Pagoda, the Muslim Quarter and the Bell Tower.
The guide was totally professional, very knowledgeable with extremely good English and I thoroughly recommend this tour.
