The tour was very well organized, and I was able to go to all 3 areas, although somewhat rushed because my flight arrived at 9:10 am from Beijing, and the flight back was at 7:30 pm. I was returned to the airport more than 2 hours before the flight. I would have liked more time at the Terra-cotta warriors a rea to browse around, shop for souvenirs, etc. We had as much time as we wanted at the terra cotta factory and shops to start the tour, then had to rush at the end. The guide's English was not good, but satisfactory, and very new to the guide business. Next time I will ask for someone with better English and more experience. I felt a bit short-changed...

I really enjoyed my trip to see these sights of Xi'an. ChinaTours.net made sure I had a good tour at a good price. They look out for their customers, and Wang stated. My guide, David, showed up on time at my hotel, and was very knowledgeable about the sites. Since he studied history in the university, he told me the terracotta warriors were pretty much his life's work. Very interesting person, and he was very passionate about what he does. David took me around to see the terracotta warriors, and even told me to stay away from vendors on the street selling replicas...only to buy the official ones at the factory, because they were made of a better grade of clay. We went to a great place to eat lunch, and he joined me there. Nice guy to talk with about stuff. We stay in touch. We also went to the East Wall to look around...and I learned of Fengshui...even bought more pixius....First, let me say that I collect Asian art, and like jade dragons and other similar works. David also talked to me about the Muslim quarter, which was near my hotel (adjacent). He told me my "assignment" was to navigate through there to experience the sights unique to Xi'an, especially the foods and meet the nice people there. He also talked to me about what to pay for and how much, etc. I did tip both David and the driver, and had no regrets about giving them a little more, because they both deserve it. I would gladly recommend David to be the tourguide for anyone visiting these sights in Xi'an, of course via ChinaTour.Net...

This was a wonderful experience! Jenna met us at the airport and took us that day to visit the Terracotta Warriors. Her English was exceptional. One of the things we loved was her willingness to talk about contemporary Chinese life as well as her knowledge of all the sites and the history associated wtih these treasures. The next day we went to the Pagoda and City Wall. We especially liked the tranquility of the Pagoda gardens. I have to say that Jenna went above and beyond and made our tour very memorable...

Our personal tour was all that we asked for and more. "Cookie," our guide was friendly and informative. She went above and beyond our expectations. She also gave us advice on other activites in Xian as well as offered to help us with any problem the language barrier posed to us outside the tour, as we only spoke english...

We enjoyed our tour very much. Our guide Kevin Hu went above and beyond the call of duty. The day of our tour happened to be the day the earthquake struck China, and Kevin was very helpful to us in the circumstances. We went to the Dumpling Dinner and Show in the evening, and even though Kevin was called away to remove his belongings as his apartment had been affected by the earthquake, he came back after the show to make sure we were all right, and gave us his name, phone number and email address, in case we needed assistance the next day in rearranging our plane bookings. He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and his English skills were excellent. This was one of the best tours we had in China. We very much enjoyed the Pagoda (where the monks happened to be celebrating Buddha's birthday - a rare treat ) and the Terracotta warriors were of course spectacular, even without the earthquake! The meal was very good buffet style, and there was no pressure from the many shops inside the restaurant building. We enjoyed the factory, and only bought what we really felt we wanted. The City wall was interesting, but by that time we were a little tired, and probably didn't appreciate it as much as we should have. All in all, the tour was well organised, efficiently run and very enjoyable. We were picked up promptly in a comfortable car, and the whole experience was well worth the money. Thank you Kevin, we would love to use your services again...

Thank you so much for the tour, it was great. Jenny was well informed, and very friendly with great language skills. We all had a great time, and enjoyed our history lesson immensely. The driver was proficient, courteous and helpful. We will highly recommend your tour company to any of our friends, and people we meet. Thank you for arranging the tour for us on such short notice. Have a happy prosperous and safe New Year. Renee, Janet and Brian..

The guide rang us up the night before to confirm the pick up time and location. Overall the one day tour was very relaxed and enjoyable but the price of 700RMB per person (just the 2 of us, private tour) was rather high as we only paid 400RMB for a 2 day tour in Beijing the week before (but it was in a larger group of 7 or 9, coach tour)...

The tour was very good. The guide rang up our hotel the evening before the tour and confirmed the pickup location and time. She was very considerate that my husband spoke English and my 10 year old nephew spoke Chinese only, and she had to speak both Chinese and English. That did make her very busy. We throughly enjoyed it and appreciated it. The tour to a factory and the tea-house had no pressure for buying things at all, as the tour guide left us free whilst herself was back on the bus. We would have bought some nice tea, but the Australian custom wouldn't allow loosely packed tea leaves into the country. The bus driver was very friendly and helpful. We asked him to drop us at a particular location rather than the hotel. He did so and told us where, in the evening was not safe to go and what care we should take. We appreciated the experience that personal care and trust were given to us...
