Mary E. is a great guide! Extremely knowledgeable and an interesting speaker. We took the 1:30 PM to work on an overcast day which was perfect for avoiding the heat. We had a large group and she did a great job keeping everyone together.

Unfortunately due to vandalism the cemetery charges $20 for a tour. But with that being said our tour guide Denise was awesome. She gave good historical info on the city and we loved her spunky attitude. Highly recommend doing this at least once!!

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.

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.
