Tour Itinerary Meet your private English-speaking guide and driver at your hotel lobby at 08:30, before proceeding to drive to the Banpo Neolithic Village (40 mins) where you can spend around 1 hour sightseeing. Afterwards, head to the museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, where you can spend 2 hours exploring one of the most significant archaeological excavations of the 20th century, discovered by local farmers in 1974. You’ll see life-sized terracotta figures arranged in battle formations, shaped in the image of Qin Shi Huang’s imperial army in 210-209 BC. The army was built to protect the emperor in his afterlife, and miles of land still remain unexcavated. The pits have different figures that range from military personnel to musicians, acrobats, and strong men.
Following your time at the museum, enjoy a traditional Chinese lunch, then briefly visit the Emperor Qinshihuang Mausoleum before making a stop at the Terracotta Figures Factory, which makes replicas of the terracotta soldiers.
Afterwards, begin the return trip to Xi’an, passing by the Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum along the way. This 8-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
