Itinerary Details

Eat breakfast or lunch before your guide arrives at 9am (morning departures) or 1pm (afternoon departures) to accompany you on the 45-minute drive to the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum.

A destination that sits alongside the Great Wall as a classic China must-see, the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum was listed by UNESCO in 1987. Many of the astonishingly lifelike clay warriors and horses still stand in the pits from which they were excavated, which are covered year round to enable all-season viewing.

The highlight of the museum is the massive Pit 1, which occupies 77,995 square feet (14,629 square meters), and houses around 6,000 lifesize warriors and horses. Your guide will also escort you to the smaller pits and the on-site museum, home to artifacts from bronze swords, spears, crossbows, and other weapons through to bronze models of chariots with warriors.

Learn about the mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang, a vast mound which remains a mystery as the technology does not yet exist to protect its contents from excavations, and how Qin Shi Huang shaped the future of China before his death. 

You'll have around three and a half hours at the site – if you're traveling with kids, you may wish to dress up in warrior costume and pose for photos – before driving back to Xian, arriving at your hotel around 2pm or 6pm depending on your choice of departure.

This tour was simply amazing due to the tour guide, Jack. He was an incredible person to meet as he was very knowledgeable about the history of the terracotta warriors and horses but he was also an amazing person. We spent the entire time discussing our countries, our cultures and our histories. He was as interested in Australia as we were with China. Jack took us to restaurants where the food was incredible. He showed us around places that are not on a tourist map!! No bus lines. No microphones to inform you of information. A personal guide to explain everything. He suggested when to spend money for entrances and when to look from the outside. Jack even assisted us to move from one motel to another after seeing the condition of a rather well-known place. He negotiated a refund and helped us find a new place a short distance away.
If you want personal service with an interested, motivated guide you just have to ask for Jack. The price, by the way, was incredibly affordable and worth every cent or dollar or yuan!!
We cannot recommend this tour and this guide any more highly.
