The Bell Tower is one of the highlights in Xi'an, it was a way to dominate the surrounding countryside and provide early warning of attack by rival ruler, it is a stately traditional building that marks the geographical center of the ancient capital. The Bell Tower is the largest and best-preserved of its kind in China. During the Ming Dynasty, Xi'an was an important military town in Northwest China, a fact that is reflected in the size and historic significance of its tower.

Xian Tour Highlights with Anna

We were very pleased we decided to visit the Terracotta Warriors. Everyone comes to Xi'an for this. It's a must-visit spot in Xi'an. We booked the private one day Xi'an essence tour, which ended up perfect for our family of four. Easy and quick response to organize and sort our details via email, and very flexible. Anna our guide did a great job and we learned so much. We visited the Terra-cotta Warriors, the City Wall and the Muslim Quarter in one day. Each site was interesting. The Terra-cotta Warriors are really breath takingm the story behind them is truly amazing and these statues are almost ompossible to conceive the how and why. The effort that went into constructing this army is unbelievable. The power of the emperor must have been immerse and unquestionable. The technoligies that were used that were way ahead of those available in the West. The rows and rows of soldiers that have been carefully restored are incredible.

Anna was very professional, took care of everything, and was so nice, we had great discussions about the site, city, history. If you are in Xian, book with Xian Private Tour, they are the best!

Terracotta Army, City Wall and Muslim Quarter with Jack

Our group flew to Xi'an from Beijing early in the morning and returned the same day. We visited the Terra-cotta Warriors, the city wall, and the muslim quarter all in one day. We had an absolutely amazing time in Xi'an which started from the moment we were met by Jack at the airport at the commencement of our visit. He was so much fun, and so attentive and considerate of our needs, ensured that everything about our trip went well. He went way beyond what was required of him, which impreseeed us great deal. He was also very knowledgeable about the local history, was easy to understand. We thoroughtly enjoyed having him as our guide. Highly recommend him and Xian Private Tour if you are planning on visiting China and Xian. 5 stars service!

Very nice tour of Xian

After looking at the reviews and doing some research we decided to book a one day tour with Xian Private Tour. Sam/Bonnie promptly responded to e-mails we sent arranging the tour. You pay 20% deposit by PayPal and the rest of the amount due in cash on the day of your trip. This is standard for private tours in China.

Sam/Bonnie set us up with Nancy who met at our hotel lobby right on time with a sign. Nancy spoke English very well, was a wealth of knowledge about China and Xian, and had a great sense of humor. We visited Terracotta Warriors, Bell Tower and Muslim Quarters, all sites are very interesting, we also tried lots of Muslim snacks recommended by Nancy. Nancy is very knowledgeable, provided a great deal of information and history at each stop. We absolutely had a great time and the cost of the tour made money well spent. Highly recommend Xian Private Tour and Nancy. Thank you!

Awesome Xian day Tour With Linda

Our trip around Xian guided by Linda was amazing! This was by far the best experience we had in Xian. We loved our day with Linda seeing the Terracotta Warriors, Bell Tower and Muslim Quarter. She is very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information and stories about Xian history and Chinese culture. She let us keep our own pace eapecially with senior travelers, made our travel and experience really easy, she didn't rush us and let us enjoy our time at Xian. Despite we run overtime, she didn't rush us and still over us extension time! She was also friendly and gave us some recommendations on food that we would have never tried in our own and it was by far the best food we tried in our whole trip!

Thoughly enjoyed the Xian day tour and would strongly recommend Linda to anyone looking for a tour of Xian and the amazing Terracotta Warriors.

Xi'an in a Day

Our family of four recently spent a full day on a private tour on Xi'an with Susan. We've been on tours before and may never want to go on anything but a private tour again. Susan was like a good family friend showing us sites and personalizing our trip to our needs yet sharing details abour Xi'an that we just coulldn't have known without her help. We particularly wanted to experience the history of the city and Henry effortlessly paid attention to this and led us to places that weren't as crowded with weekend visitors as others. Susan shoed us sites at the more crowded Terra-cotta Warriors that were actually very secluded in the midst of weekend visitors. She knew the places to go and get a very special view of a very special city. Only an experienced local could know this and his attention to detail was very appreciated. It made for a memorable day that would have been utterly impossible on our own. Thank you Susan!

Absolutley fantastic tour of Xi'an with Harry

I'm currently working in Beijing and wanted to visit other areas during 2 days off. This was absolutely the right way to do it. Harry met my group at the train station, he and the driver were both very professional. He was warm and engaging, answered all of our questions and asked us what kinds of things we wanted to do or see besides what was listed. He kept us on time (even though we were running late from the train) but I never felt rushed. Lunch was lovely at a family residence and the tea chicken that Harry recommended was one of my favorite dishes. I will book more trips with them, and if you're in Xi'an you should ask for Harry.
