Any trip to Beijing will simply have to include a Xian tour, because no trip to Beijing can be considered complete unless you visit the famed terracotta warriors.
The warriors depict the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China, and they were buried with the emperor so as to protect him in the afterlife.
The wonderful sculptures include warriors, obviously, as well as chariots and horses, and there are over eight thousands of soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses.
The Xian Tour that we’re suggesting will be picking you up in the morning from your hotel between the wee hours of 5:30 and 6:00 in the AM, so make sure you’re ready to be greeted by our guide and driver.
You’ll be taken to the airport so that you can take a flight to Xian, keep in mind that this will be a two-hour flight. The guide will help you with the check-in process at the airport and once you’ve reached the Xian airport, a local guide will be meeting you. The guide will be holding a sign with your name written on it and wait you at the exit.
You’ll be taken to lunch in a traditional restaurant and then off to Xian City to visit the Ancient City Wall. The tour will continue then to see the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and at the end of the day you’ll be driven back to the airport to drive back to your hotel. A light breakfast and dinner will be served on the airplane.
The tour cost will include a private English-speaking tour guide, the roundtrip airfares as well as the airport taxes, the entrance fees for the various places mentioned above as well as the traditional local lunch in Xian.
