Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
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!
Fantastic Must do Tour in Xian. Our Guide Lucia made our trip more memorable with valuable insights!
This was a great tour with a wonderful tour guide, Amy. She provided us with information about the two sites we visited, Banpo Museum and then the Terracotta Warriors excavation. This trip was well worth the price.
Rose is very nice and helpful guide. Proper instructions and details in advance were provided by her. Punctual on pick up time. She welcomed with such a friendly atmosphere, I had a fantastic start! The tour was extremely good, very flexible appreciate this! and for that, she deserves a special thanks. I had two great days there, which obviously also added up to the experience.
Rose is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide recommendable!. I truly enjoyed Terracotta essentials trip with her. She provided all the information on the day trip. She also has great patience. The car was very comfortable and clean. She arranged good quality water and western style food in advance. Also helped with all the tickets and other stuff required for the day. The driver was very good with knowledge of all local spots. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment. The city wall on the end was a great way to end the tour.
The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me. All respect for Rose who does a great job there a true sample of an excellent tour guide!
Many thanks again and I recommend Hantang International Travel to everyone! Thanks for the services.
No doubt I'd recommend this. Small van. Cozy group of 5 and a fantastic tour guide, whose name I can't recall in Chinese, but went by Lucy. She speaks perfect English we discussed politics and history, she is thoughtful and funny. Made our day wonderful. The trip was organized and pleasant. Being American, I can moan this was good.
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!
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.
This was a great tour and we had the best day thanks to Nana who was an awesome guide. The terracotta warriors are absolutely a must see and we thoroughly recommend this tour.
it was surreal!
very worthy tour! Lucia was a great guide. they take you to Bampo site first which is 6000 years old, this place has great historic significance. followed by lunch and then to terra cotta army site. The site has 3 pits which are open to public. The pit 1 is marvellous as you see through the remains of a rich history legacy. must visit site in China to understand the essence of culture and history of china. overall the tour was very well organised with no issues at all.
