Sheila was a fabulous tour guide. Her knowledge of the history and families associated with many of the tombs made the tour more of an experience and not just "eye candy" (which this cemetary really is...it's incredibly stunning from the tombs themselves to the beautifully manicured grounds). Our guide was very laid back--she drove us around the grounds in her vehicle and stopped at various tombs so we could walk, photograph and explore. I highly recommend Sheila as your tour guide!
