* A traveler said: "We've been in Chengdu and unfortunately not enough time to visit beautiful Xi'an as well. But we didn't want to miss the Terra-catto Warrior. Definitely once in a lifetime experience. So thanks to the bullet train who is running from Chengdu to Xi'an since last year we took our chance and booked a 1-Day-Trip with Jasmine who was our private guide! She did a fantastic job. She is very knowledgable and her English is fantastic. As we are foodies she even took us to a local restaurant (promise, no tourist trap) afterwards and scheduled us on an earlier train back to Chengdu. All totally worth the money. If you are close to Xi'an - Terra-cotta Warrior are a must see. Comparable to the Pyramids and Machu Pichu! Take your chance and book this great 1-Day-Tour!"
