Our guide Wendy spent a ton of time explaining everything about the tomb and it's importance and what exactly we were seeing. Really the best way to spend the time we had there.

This tour was great - included the two things we really wanted to see (the terracotta army and the Hanyangling Museum) and we also got a great lunch and a visit to a local farmer's "cave house" which was an interesting insight into how people live outside the big cities.
