8:00-9:00 Pick up from the Hotel

Our tour guide will come to get you at the lobby of your hotel in downtown Xian. The guide will contact you the night ahead to confirm the meeting time with you. 

9:00 Drive to the Terracotta Warriors and Horses

To keep you out of the shopping stops along the ordinary road, we will head to the Terracotta Warriors and Horses straight via the express highway. The drive takes around one hour. 

10:00 Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses

You will visit the three excavated pits, as well as the Bronze Chariots and Horses Exhibition Hall in the company of our professional guide. We schedule no less than two and a half hours for you to delve into this miracle of ancient China. 

13:00 Free Time for Your Own Lunch

We do not include Lunch. Unlike some tours arranging the crappy lunch, we prefer to leave the lunch on your own to eat more wisely. There are local restaurants or popular fast food chains outside the museum. Our guide is happy to offer you advice if you are in need. 

13:40 Drive back to downtown Xian

14:40 Small Wild Goose Pagoda

Our guide will show you the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, which has witnessed more than 1300 years history of Xian. You can still feel the cultural and religious atmosphere once it had.

16:00 City Wall

Now we’ll explore the more than 600-year-old ancient City Wall. It is fun to ride a bicycle on the wall. If you are interested in it, you can rent one and pay the cost on the spot by yourself. 

17:30 Muslim Bazaar and Drop-off at the Hotel

We will round off this Xian small group day tour at the Muslim Bazaar, which is the most bustling place in Xian. If you like, you can walk around the area to pick up some souvenirs, taste local snacks at leisure and then find your own way back to your hotel. For your information, you may also explore the nearby Great Mosque and the Bell and Drum Tower Square. 

If you don’t feel like visiting the Muslim Bazaar, we will drive you back to your hotel after dropping the others off at the Bazaar.
