The tour was very interesting, and the guide was engaging and extremely knowledgeable. The tour ran 2.5 hours. I would suggest shortening the tour by at least 30 minutes if not 45. It's just a lot of walking and standing. Otherwise, would highly recommend.

Unfortunately I came late and didn't get the name of the Guide but she was excellent. She kept the tour moving and had lots of interesting facts and stories to share. We had a wonderful time!!

It was a beautiful fall day, a perfect complement to an informative autumnal walk into the past. Amanda, our tour leader, was solicitous, funny, and extremely knowledgeale about the history and secrets of Rosehill Cemetery. I have toured Rosehill before on my own, yet she revealed dozens of surprising details, stories, and graves I didn't know before. Highly recommended.
