Xi'an Private Tour: Terracotta Warriors, City Wall, and Giant Wild Goose Pagoda
The highlight of this private tour is a visit to the famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum. This great discovery was actually a coincidence when a group of peasants were digging a well in 1974 and it turned out to be one of the greatest archaeological findings in the 20th century when they unearthed fragments of a life size Terracotta Warrior. Excavation of the vault revealed thousands of warriors and their horses and the entire army designed follows its emperor into eternity. You will also visit the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda and the ancient City Wall of Xian to learn more history about the amazing city of Xi'an.
In the morning, the first stop is to the famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum. In addition to visiting the pits and exhibition hall, you also have the option to go to the Circamara Theater where visitors can 'travel' back to the past. You will be able to learn so much history of Emperor Qin Shihuang as well as the discovery, repair and protection of the Terracotta warriors. A shopping center nearby also provides visitors with copies of the warriors, horses and chariots as souvenirs.
After lunch at a local restaurant, in the afternoon you will visit the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda that is considered a symbol of the ancient capital of Xi'an. It lies on the Da Cien Temple in the southern surburb of Xi'an City. It was originally built in 652 during the reign of Emperor Gaozong in the Tang Dynasty to collect Buddhist materials that were taken from India by the hierarch Xuanzang.
Finally, we will visit Xi'an City Wall - China’s best-preserved City Wall built in the early Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). There are total 98 ramparts on the wall and every 120 meters you can see one rampart extending out from the main wall. They were built to defend against the enemy climbing up the wall before returning to your hotel in Xi'an.
