Scared to death finding the tour.

The stories was good especially the haunted house. The fact that most of the parking garages are over mass graves from from a pandemic like we are in today. No markers for the tour. Walked around 30 mins looking for the start point.

I loved it all! The history and seeing everything was just amazing. Our tour guide was funny and told the best stories and answered any questions we had. I think his name was William he had long hair he wore in a ponytail, he was the best and my kids loved having him super friendly. Would definitely do again if we ever come back to visit!

I had been on this same tour 2 years ago and it was 10 times better. Guide only showed 4 or 5 places, whereas the previous trip we heard 5 different stories before we really got into the trip. Paid for a 90 minute tour and it maybe lasted an hour.
