Everest and Potala Palace We saw the Potala Palace, Everest and countless scenic views and monasteries. Everest and Potala were the highlights and did not disapoint. Our tour guide was great, he was a local Tibetan and knew a lot about all the sites we saw.

15 Days Best Silk Road Tour from Xian to Urumqi After 3 years of hibernating, in Mid October 2023 we went on holiday to China again. This time we chose "Silk Road Trip", an adventure trip for our age. A very enjoyable trip and full of beautiful memories for us and our family. This holiday, not only sees extraordinary views but also learns about the history of traders' journeys via the Silk Road and the development of religion in life at that time through the grottoes found. This is our 5th holiday arranged by China Xian Tour. Thank you to China Xian Tour for planning the travel itineraries, providing service beyond expectations, the professional guides, the comfortable vehicle and the careful driver. , so that the 15 days of Silk Road trip was very comfortable and enjoyable and sweet memory for our family. Last but not least, thank you for the delicious welcoming dinner. See you again in our next trip to China!.

Terracotta Warriors - Not To be Missed & The Best English-Speaking Tour Guide, Thank You :) We fell in love with Xian, the old capital of China is so rich with thousands of years of history. Our private day tour was made all the more special because of our tour guide, Noble Liu. We were so lucky to have him for the day as he is an excellent and knowledgeable guide, highly recommended! We are missing China and especially Xian, a truly memorable trip, thank you especially to Noble for making it so special :)

We had an amazing time in Xi’an! My friend and I had a really amazing time on our 1-day tour of Xi’an! In the morning, our transition from airport to private tour car was very smooth. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable, and he made the drive to the terracotta warriors go by very quickly and entertainingly with great conversation. I really appreciated our tour guide’s experience and professionalism regarding the locations we visited, because it made getting through lines and around crowds much easier. He even advised us on some great photo-taking spots, and took our pictures for us! I originally sought a guided tour for our trip to Xi’an because I wanted some to learn more about the places on our itinerary, and because a tour seemed like an efficient way to see the best parts of the city, and I got all that and more! I can’t recommend enough!

Magnificent Xi'an tour with Noble our tour guide from Joy travel This has been an amazing experience with Joy travel and our excellent tour guide Noble. No words can express our review (my husband and I). Our first tour in China since we have been here and we are looking forward to many more to come. From the magnificent hotel, to having a reliable driver during this holiday period, Noble our fantastic tour guide. We learned so much details about each place we visited. At the Muslim quarters we got to taste so many different delicious foods. When we visited the Pagoda and the Buddhist temple Noble taught us so much about the history related to it. Visiting the terracotta army was so memorable as we learned how to identify the different warriors by their hats they wore and what the different pits were related to. We also got to meet the farmer who discovered the army, took a photo and got to go shopping around for Jade. Noble gave us great advice about where we should buy souvenirs from. Noble also recommended the beautiful and we'll organized show about the silk road. He also took us for some local Shaanxi cuisine which was so delicious. We visited the city wall and not forgetting the Pagodas. Without our tour guide we would have not learned anything. We really appreciated having Noble explain in English and with so much details. We learned about the history in Xi'an, different dynasties, Buddhism, the silk road and so much more. I would definitely recommend Joy travel to any foreigner visiting China and if they are visiting Xi'an, please make sure you get Noble as a tour guide. He's the best!
