    This is a must do tour. The coach picked us up at a near by location (4 minute walk away) as pick up was not possible at our hotel. There was a tour guide on the coach, they explained what was going to happen. We had 3 small breaks, during the tour, where there were toilets and refreshments. The tour itself was excellent, very informative & emotional. The guide explained in detail what atrocities happened in each area. Something we were unaware of - everyone got off at one stop regardless of pick up. Our hotel was a 30 minute walk away. Luckily we had a small amount of charge on our phone so could follow google maps to get back.
