Explore Terracotta Warriors
Also named Terracotta Army, the Terracotta Warriors and Horses are a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shihuang, the first Emperor of China. They were buried to protect the emperor in his afterlife. The Terracotta Army were discovered in 1974 by local farmers drilling wells for irrigation. The figures vary in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals. The figures include warriors, chariots and horses. There are an estimated of 8000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses buried in three pits. Other terracotta non-military figures were found in other pits, including officials, acrobats, strongmen and musicians. The Terracotta Army is one of the most significant archaeological excavations of the 20th century in the world. It was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

Visit Emperor Qin's Mausoleum
The mausoleum of the first emperor of China, Qin Shihuang endures as a mystery to archaeologists and historians as it remains largely sealed up and unexplored. the construction of the emperor’s mausoleum began long before Qin Shihuang became the first Chinese emperor. When Qin Shihuang was 13 years old, he ascended the throne of Qin, and immediately began building his eternal resting place. It was only in 221 BC, however, when Qin Shihuang successfully unified China that full-scale construction would begin, as he then commanded manpower totaling 700,000 from across the country. The mausoleum took over 38 years to complete, and was only finished several years after his death. An account of the construction of Qin Shihuang’s mausoleum and its description can be found in the Records of the Grand Historian. According to this source, Qin Shihuang’s mausoleum contained ‘palaces and scenic towers for a hundred officials’, as well as numerous rare artifacts and treasures. In addition, the two major rivers of China, the Yangtze and the Yellow River, were simulated in the mausoleum using mercury. The rivers were also set mechanically to flow into the great sea. Whilst the rivers and other features of the land were represented on the floor of the mausoleum, its ceiling was decorated with the heavenly constellations. Thus, Qin Shihuang could continue to rule over his empire even in the afterlife.

Lunch on your own
Lunch is not included. You may try some fast food chains outside the Terracotta Warriors Museum.

Visit Banpo Neolithic Village
Banpo Museum is the first prehistoric excavation site museum in China. The site was discovered in 1953 during the construction of a power plant. The Neolithic Village, occupying an area of approximately 50,000 square meters, was divided into three parts: the living area, the pottery making area and the cemetery area. It is a typical Neolithic matriarchal community of the Yangshao Culture dating back about 6,000 years, during which people living here used tools made primarily of wood and stone. It is the earliest known agricultural village in China.

Visit Shaanxi History Museum
Shaanxi History Museum is one of the first national museums with modern facilities in China. The museum houses over 370,000 items, including murals, paintings, pottery, coins, as well as bronze, gold, and silver objects. The modern museum was opened to the public in 1991 and its appearance recalls the architectural style of the Tang Dynasty, with a hall in center, storied buildings in corners. Shaanxi was the ancient imperial capital of China, having been the seat of more than 13 feudal dynasties, including the Zhou, Qin, Han, and Tang dynasties. Shaanxi History Museum is famous for its collection of Zhou Dynasty bronze wares, pottery figurines of Qin and Han Dynasties,Tang Dynasty gold and silver wares and mural paintings in Tang Dynasty tombs.

Day Trip in Xian Review by LEE JUDE

We had limited time in China and therefore we chose this one day trip to Xian. The trip more than fulfilled our expectations with its visits to the ancient city with it Banpo Neolithic Village Museum and the Terracotta Warriors museum. The Terracotta Warriors is alone worth the trip and definitely something you have to see. Our guide was great with good knowledge of the history of the sights and also sharing information of China in general. All the logistics was excellent, pickup and delivery to our hotel, tickets and check in at the airports. this one day trip is perfect.

Spectacular Day Tour Review by HARRIS THEOTORE
Let me begin by saying that my tour guide, Alisa, was absolutely wonderful and I was so pleased with the sites we visited. Alisa had a broad depth of experience in leading this tour and answered every question competently and with wonderful command of the English language. First the positive things. We began the amazing tour with a visit to the Terra Cotta Warriors. This ranks among the top ten sites I have visited around the world and the reason I visited Xi'an. Then we drive to Banpo Neolithic Village Museum, this place us unbelievable, there were lot of Graffitis and historical sites. I love this place so unique. The second thing that was disturbing was that the tour requires. As I said the tour is costly. And the trip was worth it and Alisa was a great guide! (Posted on 5/14/2019)
Historic Xian Private Day Trip Review by Sophia Brown
The trip was excellent. Our guide Alisa was very enthusiastic and spoke fluent English. Her explanations were clear and detailed, and was very knowledgeable. My son and I learned a lot about the history of the Terracotta Army and Shaanxi History Museum. We visited the factory where they sell all kinds of memorabilia, including miniature Terracotta Army figurines. Lunch was value for money and included a range of tasty food. Our fellow travelers all enjoyed their time. Recommended for families, couples or solo travelers.
