The Terracotta Warriors tour was amazing! From the ease of setting it up, to the on-time arrival of the tour bus in the morning, to the unbelievable scope of the site itself, it was truly a stress-free and memorable day. Despite the fact that I had initially provided an incorrect hotel location, the tour company took my corrected location just one day before the tour in stride. The front desk personnel of our hotel let me know upon check in that they had been in touch with them, and confirmed the arrival time, thereby relieving any stress I might have had about making the morning connection for the tour. Our tour was provided in English, and our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and explained everything clearly. The tour itself, including a stop at a 6,000 year old excavated settlement, along with the actual site of the Terracotta Warriors, was extremely interesting. And the Terracotta Warriors site itself is, quite frankly, mind-blowing. It's a massive site, and our guide did a great job gathering us for explanations of things, while also giving us time to wander around on our own. Rendezvous points were clearly explained so that we all knew when and where to reconvene. The return trip to Xi'an was efficient and included drop offs at our respective hotels. One person in my party inadvertently left his phone sitting on the seat of the tour bus when we were dropped off, and between the very helpful Viator staff, in conjunction with our hotel front desk staff, we had his phone back in his hands within forty-five minutes, averting what could have been a really upsetting end to our day. I can't thank Viator enough for, their helpful staff, and for providing an amazing and educational day! I can highly recommend this tour without reservation!

This was a very disappointing tour. The guide was lovely but barely spoke any English. My partner did most of the work and ended up being a translator for the guide for most of the tour. The sites we visited were amazing and it was a convenient way of getting there but the tour itself was very disappointing.

Great tour! It was a small group of 4 of us and the tour guide was great. She brought us to the Terracotta Warriors and told us the best spot to take pictures. We were also given free time during the tour. The second half of the day we visited the Banpo village, which was interesting but not as exciting as the Terracotta Warriors. Overall, it was a great tour--highly recommend!

This was a very good tour. The guide, Lulu, was knowledgable and professional while also being able to convey a personal touch. It was a long day, and unfortunately, we fell a little behind schedule due to circumstances beyond Lulu's control. As a result, and due to the mutual agreement of all participants, we didn't see the Mausoleum of the first Qiu emperor as scheduled. The customer service provided by Hantang International Travel Service was outstanding, however. It rained during the day and my wife forgot her raincoat in the minivan. She didn't realize it until after we had returned to the hotel around 7:30 p.m. I sent an email to Hantang, and within a couple of hours they replied that they had found the jacket and would drop it at the hotel. She picked it up at the front desk the next morning. We thought she'd never see it again, but Hantang went above and beyond to leave us with a very good impression.

Great trip, but the lunch that is included is bad and includes a shopping stop. That being said, there is more than enough time to see the warriors and the tours themselves were pretty good.

I absolutely enjoyed the tour of the museum and the terracotta warriors. Max the tour leader was knowledgeable and ver humorous and happy and kept the group entertained. Prior to the hotel pick up I was contacted multiple times regarding pick up time and location. I had a great tour and i think everyone on the bus did also.

Great tour with Amy! She was informative and spoke excellent English. The stop at Banpo Village was fascinating, and a great way to start the day. The stop at the factory and gift shop was fine, but I hadnt realized it was such a big stop for the day it would have been better to clarify that as a major part of the tour description, and been clear that it was intended for shopping and souvenirs. I was expecting lunch at a local restaurant so the buffet set up clearly for tourists was a bit of a disappointment. The Terra-cotta Warrior museum was amazing -incredible history and Amy was an excellent guide. We spent about 3hrs there, and it was about right length of time. If you want to skip the shopping I think you could pick a tour that is a half day, or that includes some of Xians other hi-lights in the full day. Organization of tour and communications about pick up were clear and easy to follow. Company was prompt with pickup, and the size of the group 7 perfect. I was really happy with the tour, though would have like a little better clarification about the itinerary and lunch so that I knew what to expect. I will definitely use Viator again in the future.
