What to expect
  • Meet your personal guide and separate driver at your downtown Xian hotel and journey by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the UNESCO-listed Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, located on the city’s outskirts. On route, listen to tales of this sculpted army, discovered accidentally in 1974, and considered one of the world’s greatest-ever archaeological finds. The collection of over 7,000 clay statues of soldiers, horses, and chariots was created in the 3rd century BC to accompany China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, into the afterlife. The army was buried alongside him and features individually carved figurines, each with unique facial features, heights, and postures. Marvel at the soldiers and other artifacts, and enjoy the opportunity to fashion your own miniature warrior from clay. Afterward, savor a Qin-dynasty-style lunch at the Da Qin Xiao Yan restaurant, whose chefs create dishes inspired by Qin culture. Then, continue to the TangBo Art Museum, a showcase of art mostly from China’s Tang dynasty, dating from between the 7th and 10th centuries. View the must-sees here, including an exhibition on the history of Chinese painting, and take a fascinating lesson in Chinese calligraphy, learning the secrets of this ancient, delicate art form. Next, return to Xian and visit its City Walls, built over 600 years ago during the Ming dynasty. Standing 39 feet (12 meters) high and running 8.5 miles (14 kilometers) around old Xian, these imperious fortifications are the best-preserved in China, and feature wide ramparts, watchtowers, corner towers, gate towers, and parapets. The ramparts reach 46 feet (14 meters) wide in places. Take a stroll on the walkway, admiring the panoramas over old and modern Xian, and then conclude your tour with a hotel drop-off.

I recently completed a China tour with Wendy Wu tours that included a trip to Xian. We caught a flight from Beijing and upon arrival visited the ancient walls followed by a traditional dumpling dinner. After dinner we were treated to a performance based on the history of the area and a night tour of the city. Finally after an action packed day we made it to our hotel where the room was opulent to say the least, a full size bathtub and comfortable bed made for a relaxing night stay.
The next morning we headed to see some terracotta warriors being made and then off to see the real thing. I was rather emotional upon visiting the excavation site as it was a major tick off my bucket list.
After lunch at the museum we caught the bullet train to Chengdu.
My only regret on this tour of Xian is that it wasn’t longer, I feel this area has a lot more to offer that I would like to explore.
Our amazing national tour guide Britney was a wealth of knowledge on the history of what is her home Provence. Britney is by far the best tour guide I have ever had and she made our trip interesting, fun and safe.
I would highly recommend any of the Wendy Wu tours if this trip is the standard.

George was our tour guided for our amazing 25 day Grand Tour of China stattin on 18 October 2019.
He was exceptionally well organised and the whole trip ran very smoothly. His knowledge of China is excellentt and the local guides he engaged for our tour were excellent. George acted very quickly when one of our group became ill and arranged for transfer and admission to hispital. George went abova and betond what we expeced of a tour guide, and stayed with our tour member and ensured he received expert medical attention. George also ensured that our great local guide in Shanghai stayed with the group and she went above and beyond what we expected of a local guide.

The whole tour was amazing, we were very lucky to have had such a friendly group on our tour.

We thoroughly recommend Wendy Wu Tours and believe we have made a lifelong friend of George. Thanks Mate

Our guide Penny, who accompanied us across China on our Wendy Wu ‘Wonders of China ‘ tour was fantastic. Very organised, helpful and informative. She gave us many insights into the culture of China and always made it obvious she enjoyed her job and being with us. A great sense of humour. Penny improved our trip by making adjustments to the tour as we went along that really worked when local conditions changed. She constantly checked and planned ahead. On the final day of our trip she gave each of us a very thoughtful traditional gift. Penny works very hard to make sure everyone has a great time.

Hebe was our great National escort who attended to all of the group needs inc accommodation coordination and she gave us so much of China's history. She was a wonderful guide and escort.
Big thanks to Echo, Wendy and Penny who were great local guides for our tour group. These 4 women were all very helpful and wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay.
All guides spoke good English and they had great knowledge of the culture and attractions where we visited. The shows we went to at night were so entertaining.
Our meals were excellent. Delicious local dishes with plenty of variety.
Our bus drivers were professional and friendly
Hotels were excellent.
This was a short but action packed tour. It was perfectly suited to my tastes and the busy days I really enjoyed.
Thank you again to Hebe and to Wendy Wu Tours

Visited Xian as part of the Wendy Wu Enchanting China Tour, the visit to the terracotta warriors was amazing and a highlight of the trip. There was a reasonable amount of time available to see each section of the Terracotta warrior complex. Our national guide Gary was also our local guide in Xian and his passion for his hometown and its many attractions was infectious with Xian becoming our favourite city of the whole trip. Gary was totally committed to ensuring our group had the very best experience possible. Throughout the trip his depth of knowledge, humour, enthusiasm and ability to deal with any request or challenge that arose ensured our journey through China was an experience of a lifetime.

My friend and I were met in Shanghai by "Addison" to begin our Wendy Wu tour. We travelled by plane to Xian. This is Addison's city and he was most informative and enthusiastic about Xian. We stayed there two days and saw and enjoyed quite a bit before leaving to travel to Beijing. There we also had another guide "Andy' who also knew his city. We had three very full days of sightseeing, shows and restaurants. I think we could not have had better guides as nothing was too much trouble and they were wonderful people. Wendy Wu is the way to go, we had no waiting in line anywhere....
