We thought that the guide could have been a little more informed about prisoners and their lives, special events that occurred, etc.

My husband and I were with a group of about 20 people who were part of a singles group. The person who led the tour was also a member. They arrived late so the tour didn’t start until 20 minutes past the scheduled time. The tour host did his best but the group was a little unruly. The prison is fascinating and I hope you are able to continue to restore and preserve it.
