Painless day out, value for money.

Visited with my vision impaired, disabled friend who has had a stroke. Tour guide arranged a wheelchair and attendant to push him around the museum, would have been impossible without this, the attendant made sure David got to the front each time and saw everything. My only issue was the lunch was rather poor, i lived in China for 11 years and the meal was very basic with little meat. Other than that, transfers were great and the guide Richard was funny Rained all day, but who can control the weather. Recomended.

It was a great experience to visit the terracotta army. Very impressive. Excellence tour guide with a good historical knowledge and perfect english skills. After the museum we went to a traditional tea house where we ate deligious local lunch. And as a highlight, our tour guide brough us to the farmer, who discovered the terracotta army in 1974 and we could shake hands and take pictutures! Amazing. I highly recommend this tour, its the best way to discover this place. Thank you guys!
