Private 1 day tour in Xi’an
Mar. 2019 • Family
Catherine Lu Tours provided everything we needed for our day in Xi’an. Our guide Ping (Sunday) was extremely helpful with every little detail ... from the historical backgrounds of the sites we visited, to the Chinese calligraphy lessons for our children, to the authentic “where the locals eat” dining ... it was all perfect.

Travel arrangements were also all put in place for us to be picked up from the train station, delivered to our hotel, transported to all of our Xi’an destinations, and ultimately dropped off at the airport ... all in our own private van. It was flawless.

The best part of Catherine Lu’s service was the private nature of the tour and the attention to and consideration of our family’s specific needs. We were traveling with 6 kids ages 17 to 4, and Ping (Sunday) was patient, accommodating, and entertaining with all of us.

Would highly recommend this service!!

One of the best tours
Can’t say enough about how
Much we loved Xi’an and our tour guide Sunday. We were provided with very comfortable large transportation for the two us to .org different sites. Very insightful discussions and history provided. Excellent restaurant selection with recommendations of great food choices.

Well Run and Informative Tour. Get the Noodles :)
Our main focus was making a quick stop or an overnight in Xi’an to see the Terra Cotta Warriors. Our guide May and our driver did an excellent job leading us from site to site. May was super informative and helpful. She even assististed us at the airport at the end end of the tour when we wanted to change our flight to earlier. She went above and beyond and we greatly appreciated her help.

Otherwise, for the tour itself The two options we added were the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda and the city walls. The walls were very cool, however in retrospect the we would probably swap out the wild goose pagoda. The pagoda is now centered in a modern outdoor mall type complex which takes away from some of its historical charm. The structure itself was interesting to look at, but could have been better served for our needs with a shorter quick photo stop. Otherwise we had an awesome time, the warriors were the highlight as to be expected. However,we also had a standout lunch at a famous place for Biangbiang noodles. They were spectacular and ended up being some of the best things we ate during our trip.

All our tours in Beijing were also Catherine Lu, cannot recommend the company enough!

Our guide Sunday was FANTASTIC!!
Sunday was super. She was very positive, energetic and informative. She took lots of pictures of our family and emailed them to us, knowing where to stand on the tours to get the perfect shot. She answered any type of questions we had about the culture, food, people, etc. She was great at the restaurants helping us select tasty local food. She was very thoughtful about keeping our kids interested (ages 11,14 & 17). She even helped me negotiate a better price on a Terra-cotta warrior when she felt that I didn’t get the best price! We highly recommend her!

The best way to tour Xi'an!!
May 2018 • Family
We had one day to explore Xi'an, and our tour guide, Sunday, made sure we made the absolute most of it...even in the rain! She added an extra stop to the Muslim Market because she thought we would like it (and she was right!), made sure we stopped at the City Wall and then allowed plenty of time at the Terracotta Warriors. We ended our tour with a traditional Xi'an lunch and then she helped us check in for our flight to Shanghai. She was the perfect combination of knowledgable, friendly, and great with kids (we had a 7 and 5 year old) and we couldn't have enjoyed our time in Xi'an near as much without her!! She definitely went above and beyond our expectations (calling us the night we arrived, allowing us to decide the details of the day, negotiating with vendors on our behalf, ordering our lunch for us, and even walked us through check in all the way to the security line).

Xi'an with Sunday. She's a delight!
Feb. 2018 • Family
We flew into Xi'an from Hong Kong and on arrival our driver was waiting with a sign and a smile. We thought, this is perfect and then our driver took our luggage, dialled a number on his phone then hand the phone to me, It was Sunday our guide on the line welcoming us to Xi'an, having a quick chat and confirming our following morning itinerary. That's outstanding service in our opinion.
Our day in Xi'an was more than we could have imagined. The Terracotta Warriors, the history behind their existence, seeing the elements that have been uncovered to date is fascinating. We had a full day with Sunday which was excellent. Had a delicious lunch and lots of personalized fun. My daughter and I had spent time in the Muslim Quarter the night before our tour with Sunday so together we worked out a change in our planned activities and went to this upmarket local food area which was Sunday;s suggestion. It was great. We even tasted the local wines.
If I ever return to Xi'an I'd only want Sunday as my tour guide. She's just gorgeous. A beautiful lady and so much fun too. Thank's so much Sunday for making our trip to Xi'an so incredible.

The Best Way to See the Terracotta Army
Apr. 2018 • Family
My family of four (including two 12-year-olds) had a truly great day with Sunday! We learned a lot and saw so much in just one day. We started off with the Terracotta Army. On our way there, Sunday told us the history of the soldiers, which enabled us to appreciate the amazing sights once we arrived. She did a great job relaying the history, and came prepared with some diagrams she had hand-drawn so my kids could better understand how the soldiers were hidden underground. Once we got there, we immediately realized that a tour with an experienced guide was the right choice, because she helped us navigate through the rather sizable crowds more quickly and get into the right spots for the best photos. We then headed to a fabulous noodle lunch, which turned out to be the most fun and memorable meal we had during our week in China. After that, we saw the Great Wild Goose Pagoda, City Wall, and Muslim Street, which were all great. Throughout the day, Sunday taught us so much about Chinese history and life in China. She was energetic, funny and engaging. We couldn't have asked for a better tour--or a better guide.
