Discover three of the most important places of interest in Xi'an on this private tour: visit the ancient city wall, the cave dwellings in the north of Shaanxi and the Terracotta Army.
Xi'an Terracotta Army & Cave Dwellings Private Tour
On the day of your tour, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Xi'an at 9 am and set off towards the east. After around an hour's journey, we'll reach the first stop on our tour, the world-famous Terracotta Army.
There, we'll enter the exhibition to see this incredible archaeological gem and learn all about the history of its discovery. These iconic sculptures, which date back to the 3rd century BC, were discovered in 1974 and have since been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Did you know that there are more than 7,500 of the terracotta statues?
We'll then make our way towards a collection of traditional cave houses located in the village of Panggou. These dwellings, known as yaodong in China, are typical of the northern Shaanxi region, and we'll have the opportunity to enter inside and learn about the daily lives of their inhabitants. After visiting the cave homes, we'll take you to a local restaurant where you can have lunch (not included).
With renewed energy, we'll return to Xi'an, where we'll head to see the ancient city wall, one of the best preserved in all of China! We'll get to walk along it and take in the spectacular views of the city from above.
Our tour will come to an end with drop off back at your hotel at around 5 pm.
