Today's Activities Yesterday you learnt some history, today is for the excavated wonder - the life-like Terracotta Warriors, who have gone through the trial of time of over 2,200 years but still stand in their position for guarding the Emperor Qin Shihuang. It would be much more amazing than you just watch them on TV or pictures. After the 2-hour visit, you wil enjoy your lunch at the Friendship Restaurant inside the Scenic Area.

The afternoon is left for a leisure stroll on the Ancient City Wall. It is the best preserved of this kind in China, with a height of 12 meters and width (upper part) of 15 meters. Rambling freeling on top of this ancient rampart, you can hold the city into your eyes and ponder over the history of China or of this ancient city Xi'an.

Tonight is special arranged for you - Tang Dynasty Show plus a tasty Chinese dumpling dinner! Dumplings come in different shapes and different fillings, some even with special propitious meanings; while the show is a blend of ancient melodious music and inspiring dances, trying to relive the golden time of Tang Dynasty (618-907A.D.). This banquet is surely a great feast to your eyes and tongue.

Xi'an features distinctive cuisines of China Northwest, such as various-shaped Chinese dumplings and other wheaten food. Muslim Quarter gathers lots of delicious local food like Rou Jia Mo and shish kebabs, etc.
(1) Here we highly recommend Chinese Dumpling Dinner, which also named Jiaozi, typically consist of a ground meat and/or vegetable filling wrapped into a thinly rolled piece of dough, which is then sealed by pressing the edges together or by crimping. As a must-try for visitors, it serves with Tang dynasty show. And it belongs to an [add on] item in the tour.

Hi Nancy,

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable tour. We visited all the places we had planned for plus insights to local cultures.

Xi'an tour was our first private tour. With this experience, we would be able to design better private tour in the future. Both the driver and tour guide are good. Hotel accommodation and services are excellent. Food or restaurant choices can be improved.

We also appreciate your professional support and services in providing the necessary information and communication for local arrangements. HRC and you will surely cross our minds when we plan for our next tour in China.

With kind regards

Dear Sara,

Our trip to Xi'an was very good. Hebe was a first class, very knowledgeable tour guide & the driver was also excellent and we would thank them for their work during our visit.

The Hotel was also very good and we enjoyed the stay at the Shangri-La. Accommodations & food was of high quality, but higher cost and more expensive than we anticipated. Xi'an in general we found is a high cost place to visit. Xi'an is a much more commercialized city that we anticipated, but the visit to the Terracotta Warriors location was a fantastic experience for us and the manor of the facilities at the location was very well done indeed. China should be very proud on this 8th Wonder of the World.

Overall we would recommend the trip to Xi'an and China Tours to any of our friends and family.

Only downside to the Xi'an trip was the traffic in the city which is very congested and a bit crazy. Kind regards,
