My wife and I enjoyed an amazing private day tour in Xian. The guide Jessica was the highlight. Terracotta Warriors was very crowded, Jessica prebooked our entrance ticket and she knew how to avoid the crowds when we visiting the site, which was really good as we don't like crowds at all. We visited Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Xian Ancient City Wall and Big Wild Goose Pagoda that we couldn't do it by our own in just one day.

Jessica was incredible smart and informative. She told us a lot of history and stories about these sites. It is amazing how many background knowledgeable she has. The driver was also very nice and friendly. Everything goes smoothly and interesting! Book a Xian day tour with fast pass is really necessary.

My wife and i had a very nice tour with Ben. We visited the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Xian Ancient City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda and Ben knows his home town very well and gave us an informative tour. His English and knowledge were both excellent. Our driver, Mr.Zhang was friendly and polite. They made the tour more interesting and meaningful, unlike those local tour groups, they doesn't bring you to any jade shops which is waste of time. I cannot say enough good things about their service. Best deal I made on my on my Xian trip. I would recommend this guide to anyone who want a hassle-free trip to Xian.

I'm glad we chose this city as part of our China tour. Xi'an is a city that you will definitely want to come back for a second time when you come here. Of course, what we can remember is not only this city, but also a very professional travel agency-Xian Private Tour, as well as our lovely guide-Michael. Michael is a very energetic young man, spoke excellent English and took very good care for all of us. We visited the terracotta warriors, the historic ancient city walls, the bid wild goose pagoda, and the food for lunch at the restaurant that Michael took us was delicious. He arranged everything very in line with our needs, which is perfect. If you want to travel to Xian, Xian Private Tour will not let you down. They are professional, responsible and answer my questions very fast that I was very appreciated. Highly recommend!

We had a really good time. Lisa our tour guide was a delightful young lady who showed us around and explained just enough information for us to understand what we were seeing. Lisa was very patient, she made sure we got to see all on our list and went at our pace.

It was a very intense trip. The terracotta warriors was the highlight of the day, it's incredible and very interesting, definitely must see in Xian, even China! After that we went to the Xian ancient city wall, Lisa has a wide range of knowledge, gave us the best explanation from the history, culture and development of Xi'an. The Big Wild Pagoda I enjoyed too and the statue of the monk Tangsanzang, we were very lucky to get all the information we want.

Xian is a historical city, if you go there, you must choose Xian Private Tour. Thank you very much.

8th wonder of the world did not disappoint, however, to get the most out of the trip, a good guide is critical. We have booked the Xian day tour with Xian Private Tour company. Lisa was our tour guide, who is a native of Xian. She was responsive, knowledgeable, and did NOT take us to any money making shopping trips that wasted our time. She majored in Chinese history and has been doing this for 10 years! Our trip was in June, which was terrific due to less crowds! Lisa and the driver picked us up at the train staion, and drove us to explore the Xian ancient city wall, Big wild goose pagoda, and Terracotta warriors, each site was amazing, Lisa even went beyond our expectations on making our trip very pleasant and memorable.

It was an incredible trip to a historic city, with the Terracotta warriors being by far the highlight. Highly recommended this Xian tour to everyone.

Our trip to Xian was a great success and this had a lot to do with Xian Private Tour company and our excellent guide, the fabulous WENDY and driver Mr. Chen. Wendy was informative and helpful at every oppotunity and having her and the driver to get us around the city and the sites made our short trip into a very memorable one that was full of highlights. With the SKIP LINE PATH, it is truly save our time as we only have one day in Xian. I am delighted that we had a good contact for any future trips in the country that you work and would be very happy to recommend your company to any friends and family that may be contemplating a trip.

We did this private day tour during our stay in Xian, we had an amazing tour in Xian, China, organised by Xian Private Tour. Anna, our guide was fluent in English, passionate, and humorous with sensitivity that comes from traveling herself. Her technical knowledge interspersed with local anecdotes was supplemented with wit and charm. The choice of sites, timing and balance between current and ancient culture was perfect. A deep emersion that was real value for money, and by passing the entrance queues and avoiding the hassle of booking on line an added joy. The local, unpretentious lunch was tasty, abundant and sociable.

Anna was a great tour guide and went out of her way to help us secure other activities during our stay. Thanks Anna! Definitely would recommend this tour to our friends.

We took a Xian day tour with Cathy and went to see the Terracotta Warriors. Ancient City Wall and Shaanxi History Museum. The Terracotta Warriors was awesome. The full size statues pf warriors, made in clay and stacked in neat rows is really a wonderful site. Really appreciate the effort taken by Chinese Government to restore all the ancient warriors in to this condition. Though all of them looks similar from a distance, different category of solders and officers can be seen from their attire.
Cathy, the tour guide spoke very good English and answered all of our questions to really appreciate this region. Nothing was ever too much trouble and her consideration to our well being and comfort was outstanding.
We would highly recommend this Xian Terracotta Warriors Tour and asking for Cathy to guide you around the wonderful city and sites of Xian.

First of all, this travel agency is slick and extremely prefessional! From the start when booking with Xian Private Tour till the end when dropping me off at my hotel. Can't flaw there service one bit. I wanted to do a private tour and only had one full day in Xian. The tour operator of Xian Private Tour quickly organised an detailed itinerary and then continued to suggest me ways to continue moving through China cost effectively as they said they can do the tour of China. I really enjoyed the tour with Susan. She was professional and patient the whole time spent together though I asked so many stupid questions. She was very informative in explaining Chinese history in a captivating way. My colleague and I had a lot of fun. It was never boring. You can tell she loves what she does and that made all the diffrence.

Big Kudos to Susan and Xian Private Tour. Special thanks to Susan, cause I was supposed to be on my own and one of my colleagues decided to join me at the very last minute. I didn't have time to contact the tour operator. But Susan, my tour guide was vary gracious, she accepted my colleague to join me. Thanks again for all your help. Highly recommend!
