If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides and drivers a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations.

Discover the fascinating history and delicious, local flavours of charming Xi’an on this tour that reveals commercial hot spots, culinary secrets and legends of history. In the morning, join a friendly local guide and travel to one of Xian’s busy morning produce markets. Spend some time here seeing what locals stock up on each day and learning about some of the key ingredients used in Chinese cooking.
While here, why not take the chance to shop for some tasty local snacks to eat later in the day? Otherwise, perhaps start the day with a traditional Xi'an breakfast? Try fresh soy milk, pancakes or steamed buns, which are all available at the market. Next, travel to the site of the famous Terracotta Warriors - one of the greatest archeological finds of the past century and the pride of Xi’an. Marvel at the burial pits filled with life-sized chariots, horses and warriors, all buried to ensure the emperor has safe passage to the afterlife.
Take time to explore, take photos and learn about the historical significance of this remarkable site before hopping into a private vehicle to head to the nearby town of Lintong. While in Lintong, feast on a flavoursome lunch of local specialties. Choose from regional dishes such as roujiamo or soup noodles then finish the tour back in central Xi’an where the afternoon is free to further explore the city independently.
