My tour guide was fun and nice. The meeting place was neat - the drinks were alright. It was an easy process to schedule (and then re-schedule a few hours later). My only nitpick is that the stories seemed like bs. And I wish we could've had some more freedom to move around the cemetery and take more pictures. It's a little pricey for what you get, but it was a fun experience with a really relaxed atmosphere and cool staff.

I enjoyed the tour but I would have liked a little more walking and exploring and less talking. The tour guide provided a lot of interesting knowledge but he was long winded and lost my interest.
