Joint one of our Xian tours
On one of our Xian tours, you will spend time at China’s ancient capital – in a country with history spanning thousands of years. It’s a vibrant, exciting city that is vastly different from its counterpart, Beijing.
A Xian tour would not be complete without visiting the Terracotta Warriors. And whilst your time may be monopolized by the awe-inspiring Terracotta Warriors and the beautifully preserved City Walls, there is so much more to Xian.
Friendly, alive and gorgeously adorned with red lanterns and city lights, Xian is a destination unlike any other in China. Located at the country’s heart, Xian reflects this heart in its people who are warm and welcoming. Xian does a beautiful job of balancing China’s old and new and melting pot of cultures, a skill perhaps mastered by its location as the Silk Road’s starting point.
In addition to other iconic landmarks, such the Wild Goose Pagoda and Chinese-influenced Great Mosque, food is an outstanding feature in Xian. A walk (or two) through the Muslim Quarter day or night is a richly cultural gastronomic experience, as it brings together the many cuisines, tastes and traditions resident in Xian for thousands of years.
With ChinaTours.com you can choose between a small group (up to 12 travelers) or a private Xian tour, made up of your own family and friends. With the held of our knowledgable English speaking tours guides, our Xian tours allow you to experience the real China. Totally focused on showing you the best Xian has to offer, your Xian tour will make for great travel memories to be shared upon your return home.
