Phoebe was a brilliant, knowledgeable guide with excellent English. The pick up and drop off from my hotel was very easy and the car was comfy and warm! The warriors were as amazing as expected with Phoebe’s expert knowledge of the history of the artefacts bringing it all to life. The lunch at a local restaurant afterwards was delicious - best meal I’ve had in Xi’an! Overall, a perfect tour and highly recommended. Thank you Phoebe!
