Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy an immersive Chinese cultural experience on this private day tour in Xi'an, including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Terracotta Warriors. With your knowledgeable guide, you’ll also visit Big Wild Goose Pagoda, a symbol of the city’s long history that serves as a holy place for Buddhists. In the early evening, delight in a spread of authentic Chinese dumplings while watching a Tang Dynasty show, combining beautiful poetry, dance, music and stunning choreography and costumes to portray China’s rich past. Round-trip hotel transport with a private driver is included.

Meet your guide in the lobby of your Xi’an hotel and hop in your private vehicle. Your driver will take you to visit the underground army of Emperor Qin's Mausoleum. At this UNESCO World Heritage site and museum, learn about the famous Terracotta Warriors — a collection of clay sculptures buried during the 3rd century BC to protect Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China.

Enjoy a yummy lunch at a nearby restaurant before driving back to Xi’an. Then visit Big Wild Goose Pagoda, an important Buddhist pagoda built during the Tang Dynasty. As you walk inside with your guide, learn about its role in the community, the extensive damage it has endured from natural disasters, and the restoration process during the Ming Dynasty.

Afterward, your driver will take you to the Sunshine Theater to watch an entertaining Tang Dynasty show, which combines elegant poetry, dance, signing, music, impressive choreography and stunning costumes to portray China's long history. While enjoying this spectacular showcase of Chinese culture, feast on a scrumptious banquet of authentic Chinese dumplings.

At the end of the show, your driver will drop you off at your Xi'an hotel by private vehicle.
