About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses, Qinling North Road, Lintong District, Xi'an 710600 China

The day trip starts with pick-up service from your centrally located Xi’an hotel in the morning. Get in the comfortable van or bus and head to the Eighth Wonder of the world, listen to your tour guide’s introduction of the Qin Dynasty and its profound history.

Your first stop will be the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum – the underground army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang. As one of the top ten places of historical interest in China, it was also listed by UNESCO in 1987 as one of the world cultural heritages. There are three pits tagged in the order of their discoveries. Follow your tour guide to explore all 3 pits and uncover the veil of this miraculous work, which takes around 2.5 hours.

Then discover the Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum guarded by 7,000 life-size Terracotta Army in battle formations. The First Emperor came to the throne at the age of 13 and seized the power at the age of 22. As soon as he came to the throne, he ordered that a magnificent mausoleum should be built for him. It took 37 years to complete this great project. Actually, the site of those terracotta warriors and horses you will see is just a small part of his mausoleum. Emperor Qin Shi Huang (259 BC - 210 BC) fascinates people when they talk about the Great Wall and the Terracotta Warriors and Horses - his two greatest achievements.

Have lunch in a nice restaurant and enjoy delicious local food. Afterwards, drive back to downtown, you will visit the Terracotta Replication Factory on the way to know how to make terracotta soldiers and purchase your preferred souvenirs. Then drop off at your hotel to conclude the tour.
