Xi'an Tours 2024/2025: Private & Small Group Xian Tours

Like the position of Rome in Italy, Kyoto in Japan and Athens in Greece, Xi’an (or Xian) is considered the cultural capital of China to some extent. With a history spanning more than 3,000 years, this city, the former national capital of 13 dynasties, has gone through many rulers and seen many historic events. Xi’an is the origin of the famous ancient Silk Route heading west and home to the Terracotta Warriors of the first emperor. Not a big fan of history? Take it easy, as the most populous city in Northwest China, modern Xi’an is absolutely the paradise for foodies and pop culture lovers.

Initially established as “China Xian Tour” in Xian, we are real Xian experts, and our Xian local guides know well how to create your unique and memorable Xian experience and authentic interaction with local life and culture. Discover the best of Xian with real Xian insiders, our Xian local guides will lead you to explore the unflinching Terracotta Army, stroll through the Muslim quarter, cycle atop the Ancient City Wall, discover profound history in Shaanxi History Museum

How to plan a tour to Xian?

Usually, we suggest you stay at least 2 days in Xi’an to cover its essential attractions: Terracotta Warriors, City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Shaanxi History Museum, Small Wild Goose Pagoda, and Muslim Quarter; Xian layover day tour is also available for Terracotta Warriors plus one more site like City Wall or Big Wild Goose Pagoda in the afternoon; you are able to pay an in-depth exploration to Xian if you stay 3-4 days or longer. In that case, Huaqing Hot Spring, Banpo Museum, Hanyangling Mausoleum, Great Mosque, Famen Temple, and Qianling Mausoleum are ideal sites to visit for history & culture lovers while Huashan Mountain is perfect for adventurers to appreciate the natural scenery. What’s more, if you have one more day in Xian, you might as well take a Xian to Luoyang day tour by high-speed train for Shaolin Temple & Kung Fu and Longmen Grottoes.

How can I get to Xian?

Xian is one of the core cities in China’s transportation network with flights, trains, and high-speed trains daily shuttling among other cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Zhangjiajie, Guilin… More often than not, Xian is taken as a later station behind gateway cities like Beijing and Shanghai. Therefore, most people tend to take a Beijing Xian Tour or Shanghai Xian Tour by flight, high-speed train, or overnight train. Nowadays, more and more direct international flights to Xian are open, enabling your Xian tours less hassle. And the direct flights from some Asian countries like Singapore and Malaysia at very good price provides nice opportunities for a great Xian tour by Air Asia especially.
