I just recently went on a short weekend trip to Xi'an and had a very wonderful experience! While it was peak travel time, I was lucky enough to have the 'coach tour' with only one other person. We had perfect weather for the trip! Kitty, our tour guide, spoke wonderful English and knew a lot about Xi'an! She was very excited to share her knowledge with us and made the trip very memorable. We even had time to see the Goose Pagoda as well.
Because there were only two of us, we both wanted to have the dumpling dinner and the Tang Dynasty show. Both are very much recommended as an addition to the tour to Xi'an! Xi'an is known for its dumplings! While it was not included in the tour, Kitty and our driver (Mr. Guo) took us directly to the show then dropped us off at our hotels afterwards. It was even more of a pleasant surprise when at the end of the journey, our driver was very excited to point out the bell tower to me!
Thanks for such a great trip to see an ancient capital of China!
