Our guide Luke didn’t seem interested in showing us much of the cemetery. He was more concerned with telling us over and over to stay out of the way of other tours, that were actually enjoying themselves. I’ve done this tour with other groups in the past and they were much better.

Mary J clearly knew her stuff, but I expected it to be a little more spooky rather than just historical

Frank/John...something like that. Funny and knowledgeable. Great guide. Fully satisfied with our tour guide. I feel i was somewhat satisfied because the tour was not what I expected. I thought we would be given more of a chance to look at the tombs. I also thought the tour was suppose to be 2 hours, it literally was 1hr and 30 if not less. Those 30 min would have made a difference to me to be able to look more and process. Especially since public is not allowed in without a guide. Overall though, he did a good job.
