The Terracotta Army in Xi’an was created to guard Emperor Qin Shihuang's tomb and to protect him in the afterlife. It is estimated that there are more than 7,000 life-sized terracotta figures and horses buried in the mausoleum, and you can see this spectacular site on this full-day tour! The museum complex features extensive exhibits, artifacts and a movie of the rich history of the site.

After your visit to the Terracotta Warriors site, enjoy a traditional Chinese style lunch. Then, you'll head to the site of the Banpo ruins. Dating back about 6,000 years, Banpo was a typical Neolithic matriarchal community. At that time, the Banpo people used tools made primarily of wood and stone. Women, the crucial labor force, were responsible for making pottery, spinning, and raising the family while the men fished. These ruins of a Banpo village was discovered in 1953, when 45 houses, six pottery kilns, 200 storage pits, 250 adult's tombs and children's burial jars, and 10,000 tools and utensils were unearthed.

I really enjoyed this tour. The guide provided the appropriate amount of information and was able to answer questions. While the day was hot, we enjoyed our tour.

My only suggestion is to go to the Emperor Qin's Mausoleum, the site of the Terracotta Army, first before going to Banpo. It was very crowded at the Terracotta Army site, and I don't think it would be as crowded at Banpo.

The vehicle had air conditioning and was in good repair.

I would recommend this tour, but not in mid-July! Wait until it is cooler if you have a choice.
