The History Museum has a great history of China, but take the morning tour as it can get very busy during the day and it was very hot going around but a awesome tour.

Xi’an shows the diversity of Chinese history, combining different cultures from both east and Muslim cultures and which you really get an understanding of if you visit the museum. The Pagoda has some really nice temples nearby and we were lucky as our guide was very helpful and spoke good English.

The grounds are beautiful around the pagoda and the history and age of many of the things you are seeing is amazing. It made such a difference having a private tour as we learned a lot, especially at the museum. Well worth booking.

If you are in xian and have some time to spend apart from terra cotta army, then this tour is great. You get to visit prominent sites in xian. The museum was really good and with private guide it is even better. The pagoda has a rich cultural heritage and I highly recommend this tour.

If you are interested in history then this museum is the place you must visit because it contains excellent collections of historical artefacts. The Pagoda is ok, but for me the museum was first-class.

My husband and I were a bit unsure about booking this tour as museums are not really our thing. It was certainly worthwhile as it has over 370,000 items to look at. The Pagoda and gardens were beautiful and we are really pleased that we booked this tour.

The museum is all about the history of ancient China - in one place. It is worth it to take a private as it enriches your experience. You will definitely gain a better understanding of ancient chinese history and will appreciate it much more. The Pagoda was interesting to see and the gardens and the grounds were very nice. We took the morning tour as we travelled in summer and wanted to avoid the mid-day heat. This tour is well worth doing and is a great introduction to Xian if you have never been here before.

This museum is a must see in Xi'an. There are numerous art exhibits in this museum and there is a great Buddhist section. You do not have to be a history lover to enjoy this tour as the Pagoda and the grounds around it are amazing. Four hours was just perfect for us as we are now retired and do not like to take long tours.

The Pagoda was really beautiful, but they do not want you to climb up it and I did see some people up there which was a little disapointing. However; the tour was good and so was our guide.
