An extremely interesting exhibition which gets very crowded but it's worth it. The cave dwellings were also amazing and it is hard to believe that people actually still live in them.

The terracotta soldiers is a world treasure and is so worth seeing. It was also a good visit to the cave houses seeing how people used to live and how they still live today. Highly recommend.

My family spent a few hours looking over the terracotta warriors and it was just unbelievable to see. The kids loved it, but they seemed to get more pleasure from the Cave Houses. We would totally recommend a visit to this part of China and to use this tour company.

All in all I can recommend PrivateTour without hesitation, the staff were very helpful and it was great to actually be able to speak to somebody, I uploaded the wrong date and when I e-mailed them I got a phone call within an hour to say the date was changed and confirmed. It was refreshing to actually speak to one of the lovely staff at privatetour.com

We only had one day to spend in Xian and we are so happy we decided to book this tour. Our guide was well informed, funny and extremely kind to us. She showed us some local food and the explained history and culture well. Overall, we had a fantastic time and learned so much about the Terracotta Warriors and the caves. We only wished we had more time to spend in this part of China.

This tour is excellent. We were picked up from our hotel with no issues and spent the morning at the terracotta warriors before going to the cave dwellings. An interesting day with a very good guide.

We thought that we would be amazed by the Terracotta Army (which we were), but when we saw the cave dwelling homes it really helped us understand a lot more about the culture in this area. They are both great to visit if you are in Xian.

Everything about this day was perfect! I cannot rate this highly enough - the caves really transport you back to the era, and the workmanship was incredible. I felt like I learned so much about Chinese culture and history on this tour. Thank you privatetour for a fantastic experience

We arrived in Xian early in the morning and only had 1 full day. This 5 hour tour really worked for us and we felt it was great value for money.
