Had a lot of fun, very informative tour. Tunde was an awesome guide.

We had a great time. Our tour guide Bobby was great. We probably could have done the tour in a shorter period of time. Our personal preference. The couple we were with wanted to see everything and we were more under the impression that if we wanted to spend an extended period of time somewhere we would come back the next day or two.

LOVED LOVED LOVED this tour! Our driver was so nice and funny, he told so many jokes and had really good information that you couldn't have gotten anywhere else.
When he dropped us off at the Cemetery he gave us our tickets so that we could get on the tram that takes you around right away.
Make sure you can manage your time wisely because there are little stops on the way down or up that you want to take your time at.

This trip was made perfect by our tour guide, Bobby. He greeted us warmly, got us settled in and used a microphone hooray in the van so all of us could hear his wonderful dialogue on the history of the area. He told us what to expect and saw to it that we were comfortable with the trolly that took us to the different spots at the cemetery. He was waiting for us when we finished and took each of us to our hotels so we didn't have to find transportation after a long day. Bobby is the best!
