Absolutely loved this place. I was taken away by the soldiers . Definite must if you come to Xian. Take your time exploring and if you buy a soldier outside in the market , make sure you bargain. We took a guide which was helpful but really not necessary, great thing was that we were picked up at airport then... More

To see the Terracotta Army in China had always been a dream of mine, and it is even better than anticipated. When you enter the first pit, it's huge and breathtaking. You don't realise how many soldiers there are, I've seen lots of stories about them, but nothing can prepare you for the sight. The highlight of our tour of... More

No trip to Xian is complete without a trip to see the terracotta warriors. The scale and history of the area is unbelievable. Each warrior is different in shape and size and expression which I found stunning. We had a private tour which I recommend highly in order to get more of the history.

It is difficult to find good accessible tourist attractions in China, but the Terra Cotta Warriors did a good job. One could use a wheelchair with few difficulties, the only limitations being one can only access the viewing area of "pit one" and there was no elevator to the 2nd story Gift Shop. Overall way above average, and thank goodness... More

What you see is what you get, we booked with China highly successful to ensure we had an English speaking guide. The Terracotta warrior museum exceeds expectations and we got to meet the last the last surviving farmer that found them, got the selfie but be aware of imposters out the front of the area.

I've been traveling in China on business for the last 25 years and never took the time to slow down and see the key sites. I Finally took the time and also brought my wife along for her first trip to Asia. I still had business to do, so this was a perfect tour package for us to see as... More

The reason we travelled to Xian and we were not disappointed. Be aware that it is a considerable walk from the entrance/exit to the actual site. There is a restaurant on site which served up a tasty lunch. Take sunscreen and a hat if the weather is warm.

Over 2000 years old. They all have different faces, armors. Massive... I read about if to prepare for the visit, but it was just incredible to see this with my own eyes. I highly recommend you take photos in the room with the background picture of warriors. It looks real! Must see. No question.

Of course we went to see the Terracota warriors and really enjoyed the visit. Great museum and display in a huge area. You should plan for at least a 4 hour visit round trip. Its not to far away, I guess it depends on traffic
