Without further ado you’ll be driven to the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses. The tour guides are all well informed about the sites and speak good English.

You can learn about the UNESCO World Heritage Xian Terra-cotta Warriors, their history which dates back to 221-206BC and their discovery in 1975 by watching a short film at the Cinemania.

After your visit to the Terra-cotta Warriors you will be taken to a local restaurant for lunch (which is also included in the tour price).
