The Cypher query language is declarative, expressive and easy to learn the basics.

What other advice do I have?

Strongly consider graph solutions if you have a high ratio of relationships to data points, or if you need to run optimized queries against enormous datasets. Because you can build your own indexing trees, you can really hand-optimize if necessary. There are also out-of-the-box solutions like GraphAware's TimeTree extension that can really limit the number of objects that have to be consulted during a query.
