Day in Hong Kong first, then an incredible adventure to the terra cotta warriors

Day tour of Hong Kong sights followed by an incredible adventure trip to Xian China, where you are transported to the world of the famous and historic terra cotta warriors and horses for an unforgettable visit, totally guided and explained, including the option of a shaanxi province famous dumpling dinner on the night of arrival. The flight is from Shenzhen to Xian so there is a slight taste of the border town next to Hong Kong before experiencing Xian. An adventure in just a brief period of time. Try it!


Begin the tour with a trip up the famous Victoria peak using the peak tram, a funicular style tramway. Spend some time enjoying the spectacular view (on good, clear days) and perhaps stop for a coffee or snack. Next stop would be the south side of the island where Aberdeen is located and take a nostalgic sampan boat ride if you wish, within the Aberdeen typhoon shelter. Continue along the south side to Stanley market. These are the highlights of Hong Kong.
The next morning board a flight from Shenzhen to xian, optional dumpling meal for dinner. After spending the night at an excellent hotel, we start our visit to the world famous terra cotta warriors and horses museum and archeological site. Spend the whole morning there, after which we depart for Sian airport for our afternoon flight back to Shenzhen, with an immediate return to Hong Kong by airport bus, to your own hotel in Hong Kong. What an adventure! (Please note that you must have already obtained your own individual China visas. )

A Recent Review of this tour

George met us at our hotel and got us quickly and efficiently to the airport. He helped us check in for our flight and provided us with all of the needed documentation. After a great flight, we were met by John, another excellent experience. After a nice restaurant and hotel stop, we toured the Terra Cotta Warriors the next day. John did an amazing job explaining and caring for us. He got us to the airport timely and helped us check in for another great flight back to HK. Highly recommend this experience.
