We had a really good time in Xian, thanks to our lovely guide Lucy. She brought so many wonderful memories to our trip in Xi'an. How we look forward to meeting her again. She was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and passionate. It was amazing that her understanding of every scenic spot is beyond the normal range of cognition. We spent more than 8 hours happily. However, there was no fatigue in the process of getting along with the guide. She was full of vitality at any time, and she was eloquent, whether it's Terracotta Warriors, Shaanxi History Museum or ancient city wall, we can always get the best explanation. During the journey in the car, we can always be amused by her. In short, do not missed the tour guide Lucy, when you come to Xian.

Sarah, our guide was the best. Very fluent in Englih and very experienced and knowledgable. She was a blast and kept us together several times enjoying the sights while she went and stood in lines to get us tickets during the tour. Really made for a pleasant time and we were all pals by the end of the day. Really glad to see the sights we did on this tour and we tried how to make a Terracotta Warriors at the factory. Very cool.

This private Xian day tour is fairly priced and SHOULD NOT BE MISSED!!! Its a nice way to experience Xian when you are travelling by yourself.

Everything from start to finish of our tour with Xian Private Tour company went perfectly. Our Guide Anita was waiting for us when we arrived at the train station, and took us to Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Bell Tower, Muslim Quarter. Anita did a spectacular job, we couldn't have a better guide ranther than her. We had a brilliant time in Xian with Lisa. She was well informed about the all the highlights in Xian we visited, spoke excellent English and was very friendly, the most unforgettable is her warm smile from the beginning to the end. She gave us a great sense about what Xian is like, accommodated our wishes, helped us when we needed help, and made our visit nothing short of outstanding. I highly recommend Xian Private Tour and make sure to ask for Anita.

This was a very enjoyable and trouble free day tour in Xian. From the tour guide picks us up, we were treated like VIPs. Our guide Lisa spoke excellent English. The meals and the itinerary we have were very well organised. Lisa was exceptional treating everyone as her family. The attractions that we visited - Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Bell Tower, Muslim Quarter - and the excursions programmed were great and suitable to everyone. Ages ranged from 26 to 78. Of course, the driver Mr.Chen of this trip was also impeccable. He has a driving age of more than 20 years and is very stable, which make us feel very safe and reliable.
All in all, great trip. Thanks to Lisa and the driver. Highly Recommend!

This Private Fully Guided Xian Highlights Tour was one of the best lifetime experiences I ever had in China. Our tour guide Cindy was so incredible. She was extremely pleasant, professional and so attentive to everyone's needs in my family. Her dedication certainly made a big difference during this trip, at first, I thought it would be very tiring to travel Xian with my family, but the perfect cooperation between Cindy and the driver relieved me a lot of burden. Thank you very much. Although we only have one day, it covers most of the places that Xi'an has to go. Cindytime allocation is very reasonable. The attention, itineraries, meals, transportation were excellent and much superior to what I expected. Highly recommend.

We were very pleased we decided to visit the Terracotta Warriors. Everyone comes to Xi'an for this. It's a must-visit spot in Xi'an. We booked the private one day Xi'an essence tour, which ended up perfect for our family of four. Easy and quick response to organize and sort our details via email, and very flexible. Anna our guide did a great job and we learned so much. We visited the Terra-cotta Warriors, the City Wall and the Muslim Quarter in one day. Each site was interesting. The Terra-cotta Warriors are really breath takingm the story behind them is truly amazing and these statues are almost ompossible to conceive the how and why. The effort that went into constructing this army is unbelievable. The power of the emperor must have been immerse and unquestionable. The technoligies that were used that were way ahead of those available in the West. The rows and rows of soldiers that have been carefully restored are incredible.

Anna was very professional, took care of everything, and was so nice, we had great discussions about the site, city, history. If you are in Xian, book with Xian Private Tour, they are the best!

We had an absolutely amazing time in Xi'an which started from the moment we were met by Jack at the airport at the commencement of our visit. He was so much fun, and so attentive and considerate of our needs, ensured that everything about our trip went well. He went way beyond what was required of him, which impreseeed us great deal.

After looking at the reviews and doing some research we decided to book a one day tour with Xian Private Tour. Sam/Bonnie promptly responded to e-mails we sent arranging the tour. You pay 20% deposit by PayPal and the rest of the amount due in cash on the day of your trip. This is standard for private tours in China.

Sam/Bonnie set us up with Nancy who met at our hotel lobby right on time with a sign. Nancy spoke English very well, was a wealth of knowledge about China and Xian, and had a great sense of humor. We visited Terracotta Warriors, Bell Tower and Muslim Quarters, all sites are very interesting, we also tried lots of Muslim snacks recommended by Nancy. Nancy is very knowledgeable, provided a great deal of information and history at each stop. We absolutely had a great time and the cost of the tour made money well spent. Highly recommend Xian Private Tour and Nancy. Thank you!
