Great informational tour. Pefect mix of walking and info in beautiful area. A bit contrary to the title of the tour, the primary focus of the tour is not the cemetary as it is closed. Great info about it, but it's the smallest segment. Beautiful way to learn about the city, its history and architecture. Our guide was fantastic and the company was very accomodating with a reschedule we requested. Would definitely recommend.
