We had really been looking forward to this trip and we weren't disappointed. We decided to book with a tour and we were glad we did. The tour guide knew all the best spots and told us lots about the history. It also only worked out 30yuan more then getting the two public buses. People had mentioned to us that the overall experience was disappointing as it wasn't as vast as they expected. We couldn't disagree more. For us seeing some of the warriors completed and some of them still in pieces was amazing. It allowed you to fully understand the work that the archeologist are doing. It's much better to do the pits in reverse order. There are 3 in all with Pit 1 being the main one. Try to do pit 3, 2 then 1 so you can get the full wow factor. We also went to watch the movie explaining it all at the end which was worthwhile.
