Guide very boring.

Robert was great with providing interesting historical information as well as evoking a fun atmosphere. Our group really enjoyed the stories and the sights of the cemetery. I have been on a couple of other tours and so far Roger has been my favorite guide as he is professional and great at leading the group. He makes it look effortless.

It took too long. The facilitator was losing the focus of his attendees. The information was good, but it seemed like the tour dragged.
