Great tour. Very well-designed. I flew in early, my guide Lin was waiting for me at the airport with coffee! Had a great itinerary seeing the highlights of Xi’an with Lin being an absolute delight and helping out with everything from the best places to eat and things to try, to showcasing the local history. She also took many great pictures and provide recommendations for other things to do during my stay before dropping me off at my hotel. Had a great first day in Xi’an
