Xian Food Tour in Alley

  • Our tour routes change regularly depending on vendor opening hours and tour schedules. Your tour experience may be slightly different than what’s described above, but we promise it will always be awesome.
  • Some of our stops are local Muslim restaurants. While you will be able to enjoy beer during the tuktuk rides between each stop, out of respect to local customs we cannot allow beer inside some restaurants.
  • While some of our stops are located within the Muslim Quarter, we do not visit the touristy Muslim Street because this is not where locals eat.

Our Xian Evening Food Tour Reviews

“The Great Wall of China, The Terracotta Warriors and the Pandas of Chengdu. We would add the evening food tour of the Muslim district of Xian. What a wonderful way to experience the flavors and spices of the city. Rosemary was our guide for the tour, racing around the back streets in the little TukTuks, she made it an exhilarating and at the same time an educational experience. If you love food this is for you. Watch the food being prepared in front of you, I will remember the BiangBiang noodles for some time!”

“If you are visiting Xian and love food, you must book this tour. We had 2 seven year old children with us and the tuktuk ride was one of the highlights of their trip to China – it was crazy, hold your seat, fun. I love experiencing different foods and this would have to be the best possible way to do this. We would never have seen or experienced this side of Xian if we didn’t book this tour.”
