Wow, what a wonderful tour! Our guide was an expert and showed us things and told us things we'd never have otherwise known! Even though it did go for almost three hours, it was captivating! Thanks so much for offering this tour! I will be going back to look around on my own soon!

My sister and I thought it was fantastic! Jeff had a thorough knowledge of the cemetery and was great at conveying that to us. This was our first Atlanta Preservation Tour and we are looking forward to doing others. We will also recommend this to our friends when we can. Thank you for the experience!

As I mentioned to the guide, I think it would be nice to have another type of tour there: one which talks about the monuments themselves - the architectures, symbology, etc.
