Entire trip was wonderful. They described the entire day to us, took us to the cemetery and had answers to all our questions.
Advice for future travelers, have some cash on you, and don't be scared to try new things.
In good hands

Guides were awesome! Need more toilet paper in bathroom. If you go, please be considerate and come to the bus on time.

The beautifully decorated graves. However, I felt tourists should be banned, incl. me.
The bus trip was poorly organized. We were not told of bathroom on bus until we arrived. No tp, soap or towels. Box lunch was given but on-screen instructions said not to eat on bus. Later, we were told that would have been ok.
