The pagoda was interesting to see up close and the grounds were lovely to explore. Our guide also took us to see various Buddha sculptures and you could tell she was proud of the history behind them. We also went onto the city walls were you get great views and it is also good for taking perfect pictures. 5 stars for this tour.

We dedided to book this tour on our second day in order to get a feel of our surroundings. It can be overwhelming visiting a different country for the first time. Our guide was friendly and gave us some great tips on how to spend the rest of our vacation.

I loved the pagoda. The murals constructed of jade were stunning and I never knew that jade came in many colours other than green. The only complaint I have is that 4 hours were not long enough.

It is really worth the money taking a private tour as you learn so much more and do not feel like you are being herded around like cattle like we did in some of the other tours we took. This tour was really enjoyable and our guide was fab.

Had a great 4 hours. We were able to linger in places that we found more interesting and then skim through parts of the tour that didn't capture our interest as much. Unlike previous tours I've taken, we were able to set the pace of the tour and our guide was wonderful.

We had a guided tour which was really informative and educational about Buddhism. After being shown around the Pagoda we went to the city walls and decided to take the bike ride. A really fun afternoon was had by all of our family.

We enjoyed this tour so much! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient with us. It suited us being a half-day as we are now retired and our guide adjusted the pace meaning we had nearly 5 hours. Highly recomment it. Carol and Pete

The Pagoda was really beautiful and the views of the city from the wall were amazing. Getting picked up from our hotel and having our own guide made this trip very special but the pick up was a little late.

EXCELLENT! The pagoda and the grounds around it are beautiful and the history and age of many of the things you are seeing is staggering. Our guides English was very good and as we took the morning tour, we did not feel rushed or trapped in huge crowds.

We chose the morning tour and our guide was waiting in our hotel lobby at 8:30 am exactly. We paid for bicycles and rode along the city wall, it was a beautiful day and we took some amazing photos. Our guide was brilliant - full of information and spoke near perfect English. HIghly recommend to someone with a few hours to spare in Xi'an.
