What you'll do

This is a small group tour experience,we will meet at 7pm in the lobby of the Bell Tower hotel.

Let's go back in time with a stop at the South Gate of City Wall, which in the evening is fully decorated with traditional Chinese lanterns. This 600-year-old City Wall is stunning in the evening. we can walk along on the top of the wall to enjoy the beautiful evening scenery.

Hungry now? I hope so! Immerse yourself in the culture, history and most importantly the food of Xi’an! We will dive into the local street and food culture that you encounter as you wind your way through the colorful back alleys of Xi’an’s food-filled Muslim Quarter.

We´ll work our way to the tangle of stalls, cooking up some of the best street food in the city. The stalls we will go are generally hard to find, tucked away in the backstreets. You know you’ll be getting a truly local experience with every bite. Included tasting menue will be Roujiamo,fried pancake,Biangbiang noodle,soup dumpling and local traditional desert.

Let's come to Gau’s Grand Courtyard,very beautiful in the evening,this 400-year-old mansion is a good example of architecture from both the Ming and Qing Dynasties and provides a good overview of the history of the time.

After the tour finished,you can walk to the nearby Defuxiang Cofee&Bar street to start your Xi'an night life, or we can help you to get a taxi back to your hotel.

Great crash course on Xi’an’s history and local culture! Due to the COVID situation, there are not a lot of travelers going to Xi’an. In fact, I was Owen’s first guest this year. Most tour organizers would not hold group tours with only one guest showing up, but Owen honored the booking. Even though it was just the two of is, it wasn’t awkward. He was friendly and polite. While walking around, he shared a lot of tidbits about the city’s culture and history. Because he’s been a guide for many years, he’s very knowledgeable and experienced. The food we had was delicious too! I enjoyed going to hole-in-the-wall eateries that are not in guide books and are known only to locals. It’s a must-have experience for anyone going to Xi’an.

The tour was an awesome one. Owen arrived early and patiently waited for us at the meeting spot. We took a walk up on the ancient wall. And then the food tour began. We walked by the famous touristy Huimin street but did not buy food there since they were too 'touristy'. Instead, Owen took us to some really local spots to enjoy the best dumpling and barbecue ever. The barbecue was so delicious that we decided to go the next day. Throughout the tour, Owen explained a lot about Xi'an and the history behind every scene. I really recommend this tour to anyone who wants local Xi'an street food and to make new friends.
