About this activity
The Terracotta Army in Xi’an was created to guard Emperor Qin Shihuang's tomb and to protect him in the afterlife. It is estimated that there are more than 7,000 life-sized terracotta figures and horses buried in the mausoleum, and you can see this spectacular site on this full-day tour! The museum complex features extensive exhibits, artifacts and a movie of the rich history of the site.

After your visit to the Terracotta Warriors site, enjoy a traditional Chinese style lunch. Then, you'll head to the site of the Banpo ruins. Dating back about 6,000 years, Banpo was a typical Neolithic matriarchal community. At that time, the Banpo people used tools made primarily of wood and stone. Women, the crucial labor force, were responsible for making pottery, spinning, and raising the family while the men fished. These ruins of a Banpo village was discovered in 1953, when 45 houses, six pottery kilns, 200 storage pits, 250 adult's tombs and children's burial jars, and 10,000 tools and utensils were unearthed.

Great tour! It was a small group of 4 of us and the tour guide was great. She brought us to the Terracotta Warriors and told us the best spot to take pictures. We were also given free time during the tour. The second half of the day we visited the Banpo village, which was interesting but not as exciting as the Terracotta Warriors. Overall, it was a great tour--highly recommend!

This was a very good tour. The guide, Lulu, was knowledgable and professional while also being able to convey a personal touch. It was a long day, and unfortunately, we fell a little behind schedule due to circumstances beyond Lulu's control. As a result, and due to the mutual agreement of all participants, we didn't see the Mausoleum of the first Qiu emperor as scheduled. The customer service provided by Hantang International Travel Service was outstanding, however. It rained during the day and my wife forgot her raincoat in the minivan. She didn't realize it until after we had returned to the hotel around 7:30 p.m. I sent an email to Hantang, and within a couple of hours they replied that they had found the jacket and would drop it at the hotel. She picked it up at the front desk the next morning. We thought she'd never see it again, but Hantang went above and beyond to leave us with a very good impression.

I absolutely enjoyed the tour of the museum and the terracotta warriors. Max the tour leader was knowledgeable and ver humorous and happy and kept the group entertained. Prior to the hotel pick up I was contacted multiple times regarding pick up time and location. I had a great tour and i think everyone on the bus did also.

Great trip, but the lunch that is included is bad and includes a shopping stop. That being said, there is more than enough time to see the warriors and the tours themselves were pretty good.

This was a great tour with a wonderful tour guide, Amy. She provided us with information about the two sites we visited, Banpo Museum and then the Terracotta Warriors excavation. This trip was well worth the price.

This was a great tour and we had the best day thanks to Nana who was an awesome guide. The terracotta warriors are absolutely a must see and we thoroughly recommend this tour.

Great tour with Amy! She was informative and spoke excellent English. The stop at Banpo Village was fascinating, and a great way to start the day. The stop at the factory and gift shop was fine, but I hadnt realized it was such a big stop for the day it would have been better to clarify that as a major part of the tour description, and been clear that it was intended for shopping and souvenirs. I was expecting lunch at a local restaurant so the buffet set up clearly for tourists was a bit of a disappointment. The Terra-cotta Warrior museum was amazing -incredible history and Amy was an excellent guide. We spent about 3hrs there, and it was about right length of time. If you want to skip the shopping I think you could pick a tour that is a half day, or that includes some of Xians other hi-lights in the full day. Organization of tour and communications about pick up were clear and easy to follow. Company was prompt with pickup, and the size of the group 7 perfect. I was really happy with the tour, though would have like a little better clarification about the itinerary and lunch so that I knew what to expect. I will definitely use Viator again in the future.

Rose is very nice and helpful guide. Proper instructions and details in advance were provided by her. Punctual on pick up time. She welcomed with such a friendly atmosphere, I had a fantastic start! The tour was extremely good, very flexible appreciate this! and for that, she deserves a special thanks. I had two great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience. Rose is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide recommendable!. I truly enjoyed Terracotta essentials trip with her. She provided all the information on the day trip. She also has great patience. The car was very comfortable and clean. She arranged good quality water and western style food in advance. Also helped with all the tickets and other stuff required for the day. The driver was very good with knowledge of all local spots. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The city wall on the end was a great way to end the tour. The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for Rose who does a great job there a true sample of an excellent tour guide! Many thanks again and I recommend Hantang International Travel to everyone! Thanks for the services.
