Taking a vintage sidecar on your Xi'an tour is an extremely cool experience for digging more hidden gems in this historic city. Without normal paces which do sightseeing on a van, it is an incredible open-air journey to discover the traditional way of living of the cave dwellers and the Buddhist monks, get lost in the beautiful countryside shaped by a unique history, immerse in the ancient civilization atmosphere, and become an insider to view the rural life of Northern Shaanxi Plateau…
We organize half-day (4hrs) and full-day (9hrs) sidecar tours around Xi'an. Half-day tours are mainly used for freshly arrived people who want an introduction to Chinese rural life; while full-day tours are mainly used for people willing to have a whole overview of Xi'an countryside and see specific attractions.
