Great Guide, Great Cultural Experience
May 2021 • Solo
I’ve toured all over Asia & this was one of the best. Eddie was knowledgeable & accommodating and the driver was always quick and safe. I was one of the first tourists in Pit 1 and during a National holiday, no less! If you want a guide who knows the terrain, offers suggestions & always has a great attitude, this is the tour for you. The Terracotta Warriors are a must-see for everyone.

Brilliant way to see Xian
Eddie was brilliant to see the tremendous sights of Xian, fully packed tour with detailed information and support to go around the historic marvels of the city. The best way to see Xian and especially when you don’t know mandarin !

Amazing Day of Knowledge
Jul 2019
Eddie was a great tour guide! He took us to incredible sights we had been hoping to see. He was very knowledgable and very informative. My brother and I loved learning about the history and seeing the sights. The Terracotta Warriors were the most AMAZING things we have seen.

Organising our own private Terracotta Warriors Tour, October 2019
Oct 2019
Our group of four was on an organised group tour through China, but our tour did not visit the Terracotta Warriors. We could not miss this bucket list site, so decided to organise our own tour.
We had one free day at Zhengzhou. We decided in Australia, before we left for China, to organise a day trip to Xian from Zhengzhou and see the Terracotta Warriors site.

We organised bullet train return tickets (2nd class), through Travel China Guides.
Our day trip was booked through Terracotta Warriors Tour. Booking was a very easy process and Olivia Wong looked after us via email. Olivia gave us vital information about the trains too and booked us with our guide, Nana Wu. The tour was totally customised for the short time we had and what we wanted to see.

As we only had a day to travel there and see the warriors, we were unable to see other sightseeing areas. This was fine, as we were there to see the warriors. A few days in Xian would be perfect if you have the time to spend there. We may need to return sometime, to visit the other sites

Nana, our delightful private guide, contacted us prior our tour and met us with the driver and a luxury people mover, at the train station. Nana was lovely and friendly and her english was excellent. With a wonderful sense of humour and a wealth of historic knowledge of the site, Nana made sure our visit was personalised, calm and informative, answering ever question we asked her. We never felt rushed and were asked if we would like to revisit any of the Pits again, after we were finished the tour.

We were very satisfied with our private. After our visit to the Terracotta Warriors, we had just enough time for Nana take us to a beautiful Tea House for refreshments, before returned back to the train station. We enjoyed speaking to Nana while we shared afternoon tea.

We did spend 8 hours travelling that day, but it was worth every minute. A bucket list trip, made extremely pleasant by our guide, Nana Wu.

It was refreshingly easy to organise, travel there and have a customised private guide.
We would highly recommend this travel organisation.

Warriors, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, & City Wall with Rosa
Jan 2020 • Couples
Rosa was a wonderful tour guide for all three of our stops! Very informative, accommodating, and funny! She even suggested additional places to explore in Xi’an near our hotel after the tour. We are very happy we decided to go see the Terracotta Warriors on a week day as Rosa said it was much less crowded. As an FYI, you will need cash to get the tickets to the warriors (there is an ATM nearby, but in case you want to save the hassle).

Awesome time with Tina!
Jan 2020 • Solo
Had a lot of fun with Tina, did the Terracota Warriors plus Big Pagoda & City Wall (definitely recommend that combination). Also had the best Chinese food I ate during my entire trip at a place called First Noodle Under The Sun.

Memorable and pleasant day tour with Wendy
Jan 2020
Wendy is an excellent guide and it is so pleasant to have a day tour with her.
Her explanations are clear and matter-of-fact and she is full of knowledge and interesting. She invests in her customers as much as she can and tries to solve any problem that arises for them. We had a problem with the airline and Wendy fought for us as hard as she could and didn't let go until the solution was offered. Thanks Wendy. In addition, Wendy has also a delightful interesting personality and just a pleasure to talk to her about any topic in the world. VERY Recommend above and beyond.

Great tour
Jan 2020 • Family
Today Linda our tour guide and Guo our driver took us to many worthy sites on our 1 day Xian tour. Our first stop was the terracotta warriors. Linda's knowledge of China's history is exceptional. On the way there Linda told us many facts about the region and a little bit of the language to make our trip more enjoyable. We also visited the pagoda, the bell and drum towers and the Muslim street. Again we learnt a lot just walking with Linda she was more than happy to answer our many questions. 100% recommendation and a shout out to Guo the safest driver in town. Thank you for a great day

FANTASTIC!
My friend and I had the privilege of being with Rosa and our driver “Monkey”. She was perfectly insightful, humorous and very helpful. Even if we had personal requests she would make sure we were very well catered for.

She took us to great spots, great pictures and we had a great time laughing and learning helpful phrases in the car. We loved all the little stories that she told beautifully — stories that were part of the sights we wanted to see.

We are very happy customers! Highly recommend this tour and booking this beautiful lady!

Love,
Yan & Ethan
