This trip was awesome!!! Don’t get me wrong it was a long day of traveling (6:00am-10:00pm) but it was worth every moment!!!!
The Terracotta Warriors in Xian, known as the eighth wonder of the world, is a museum to display the terra-cotta warriors and horses which were made in Tang Dynasty. They were something I learned about in grade school and I never thought I would see them for myself!!
We decided 3 days before leaving for China to book this tour we were extremely impressed with how fast and professional China Xi’an Tour was in getting information to us and our tour booked!!
We were pleased that our drivers and tour guide, Noble, were on time and escorted us quickly to our destinations. Noble did an amazing job providing us with the history behind the warriors and the emperor who ordered their construction. Noble speaks English very well and we had no issues understanding everything he was explaining to us.
Being knowledgeable of the area and the local shops nearby Noble was able to help us purchase some gifts and we even got to meet one of the four farmers who discovered the Terracotta warriors in 1974. Noble also knew where a second of the farmers might be in the museum area and we saw him as well (no photo).
The train to and from Chengdu where we were staying to Xi’an was very comfortable and I highly recommend booking first class tickets (very reasonably priced) when you book your tour as they were very comfortable, especially considering we spend 8 hours on a train that day!!
I would definitely use this tour company again if and when we come back to China!!! Thank you China Xi’an Tour and Noble for a great day!!!
