Highly recommended

Organized! Its just that there were TOO many people (given as it was a festival). it will take you a few hours - as in more than 2 hours standing while waiting - till you reach the stage area and be given your turn. 6 people share one lantern too. Make sure to bring food, a foldable chair and lots of patience.But overall the tour was a-ok, couldnt ask for more.
