Our host was a delight. He made sure to have interaction with the whole bus. The walk through the graveyard was informational and fun.

A silly fun time, good stories told by our guide. Since it was summer it stayed light way into the night and that was the only thing that took away from the experience. Ghost stories are scarier in the dark. But that is not a knock on the tour, obviously.

The bus ride was very funny. The guide was very entertaining. Enjoyed that you get out of the bus and walk through a couple of cemeteries. All in all, a fun evening.

Actor was very late, didnt seem into his performance. With a different actor it might have been great. The tour staff were awesome in offering alternate nights but unfortunately that one night was all I could attend. Stories were good.
