Xi’an

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.
(2) Rou Jia Mo, also called Chinese Hamburger, is very similar to the Western hamburger essentially, but with different cooking method.

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,
