Larry was very knowledgeable, relaxed story teller. Walked at a nice pace, personalized the tour when we had questions of monuments we passed. We liked the flexible times of his tour as well. As the afternoon got cooler after 75-minutes we followed him to the mausoleum and saw the most amazing Tiffany windows. There are so many nuances we agreed we will need to take the tour again. Highly recommend.

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.
