Top attractions in Xi'an
What people are saying about Xi'an
We went during golden week with our eyes wide open and used to crowds living in Asia, However thru no fault of the tour guide ( she did her utmost to avoid the crowds ) we found this to be a very dangerous experience as the site operators seem more interested in letting as Many people in at once to sell tickets with no thought to crowd control or safety and this was quite dangerous at certain times thruout the tour/ day
Couldn't have asked for more from this activity. We were a bit late in arriving at the meeting point due to crazy crowds on the streets of Xi'an. The guide was very understanding. She was very knowledgeable about the city and was also able to explain all of the street food we found. She purchased a variety of food which looked interesting to us and we ate as we walked. It was a fun way to experience local culture.
The tour was good, we got to see what we wanted. Bring plenty of time, the tour was much longer than shown. This was attributed to the public holiday this day with respective traffic jam. But it also took the guide some time to get everything organized. No rush though, He gave plenty of time for Fotos and questions. English was good to guide through the day but limited for detailed questions.
My only regret was not doing this tour on my first night in Xian rather than my last as there were so many foods I did not have the room left to enjoy. Lucy was a wonderful thoughtful and knowledgeable host and it was wonderful to be able to converse while enjoying delicious diverse foods in English. I highly recommend. The range of food options and taste was perfect.
Our guide helped us find the best entrance to the city walls and negotiated cycle rental for and waited for us to complete our cycle. This made the trip quicker and easier for us. He was polite and considerate. Recommend this tour. This tour company helped with taxis and a medical issue. Recommend this company.
