No you cannot just visit the cemetery. You have to stay with the $20 tour and you cannot explore on your own. We decided not go but there is a larger cemetery a couple of blocks away that you can walk around all you want...More

There are several different companies that offers tours here. You would need to check with the tour operator that you were considering. There are some areas of the cemetery that are narrow and some places are uneven. However, I imagine the more experienced companies have been asked this before and they would know the best route through. You need to make reservations in advance (access is only granted as part of a tour due to vandalism), so ask this question before you book.
