Overview
Marvel at Emperor Qin’s Terracotta Army, a UNESCO World Heritage site, on this private full-day tour from Xian. Enjoy a guided visit to the Terracotta Army Museum, admire the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, and tuck into traditional street food snacks in the Muslim Quarter. Hotel pickup and lunch is included.
What to Expect

Meet your private guide in the lobby of your hotel at 8.30am and travel by air-conditioned car out of the city to Lintong District. On arrival, enjoy fast track entrance to the Terracotta Army Museum. 

Accompanied by your private guide, explore the UNESCO-listed site and learn more about the fascinating exhibits. The museum is located over a large area, close to where the first terracotta remains were discovered in 1974 and contains many artefacts from the burial site of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China, who died in the late Third Century BCE. The main site, known as Pit 1, contains over 6,000 terracotta figures of soldiers varying in height depending upon their rank. You will also see terracotta cavalry horses, chariots and many other small artefacts. 

After your visit to the Terracotta Army Museum, you will enjoy lunch at a local restaurant (included) before returning to Xi’an city.

On arrival back in Xi’an, visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda. The structure dates back more than 1,300 years to the Tang Dynasty and many Buddhist pilgrims from India brought sacred scriptures to the Pagoda and adjacent Temple for translation. You can enjoy the Pagoda’s surroundings and experience a lesson of traditional Chinese native painting known as Guohua, a technique of painting on an open fan with a brush dipped in black ink.

Following this traditional painting experience, you will be driven to the Muslim Quarter food street, where you will have some time to taste various local specialties and street foods (own expense).

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Xi'an hotel.

We were astounded by the size of the Terracotta Warriors tourist complex. The Chinese Government has installed huge pavillions over the pits to protect these archeological treasures. It’s magnificent and breathtaking when you first see the volume of the silent clay warriors. We did an...More
