  • “Best Tour!!!” This was my favorite tour we booked out of every tour we booked while in China. We booked tours in Shanghai, Suzhou, and Beijing. This one was by far the best. Our guide was so nice and very informative. She knew a lot of history about places, not just surface stuff which we ran into a lot in other cities... She was also very flexible and let us do whatever we wanted with our day which was nice because a lot of other tours in China will not let you spend more/less time somewhere. They didn't try to sell us stuff or take us to any unnecessary factories. It was great. We had our suitcases with us and they let us keep our bags in the car while we toured different places and kept it all very secure. They also picked us up right from the train station with a sign waiting for us so we wasted no time looking for them (included in the cost of the tour). They also have water available on the bus for you during the tour. These things were a nice bonus! We didn't have to pay at the train station. The only downside to this tour is that tickets and lunch are not included. So you do have to factor in that cost, but honestly best tour we took through the whole two weeks. Visited June 2015

  • “Terracotta Warriors - Its really amazing” The most interesting place that I visited in China. It is believed that these statues were real men and horses. Another story is that these warriors were made to show the enemies that they have a huge army. These thousands of statues of soldiers are totally different to each other. I bought a collection of miniatures of this army. One must surely visit this place. See the picture of myself. I too became a TERRACOTTA WARRIOR!!

  • “Another wonder, wow” This is actually a wonder of the world. It is pretty worth visiting there. You need to walk a little as the statues are in the very place they have unearthed. But if you can't walk there are tennis cars to hire. Make sure you watch all. There are 3 different sites in the same location.

  • “You have to go and see these” Lying aout an hour from Xian, the warriors cover a huge site. Try and not pick a day when the rest of China is also there.....ity can get horrendously busy and this will spoil the effect. However, they arer a wonder to behold!
