  • This place is both beautiful and historic. There is unbelievable stained glass and architecture. The tours are excellent and full of interesting history. The landscape is very peaceful and well maintained. Some of the trees are giant and several hundred years old. It would be a great place for a tour, walk, run or simply stroll.
  • It’s a beautiful cemetery, but the tour is really pretty bad. The volunteer was constantly confused and seemed to know very little facts. We missed what seemed to be several import people like the Anheusers. Terrible at describing what you were supposed to look at so you just hoped you were maybe looking at the correct thing. Also her and the bus driver didn’t seem to be on the same wavelength on where they were going which added to the poor descriptions. I might try a different tour if it was run by someone better but I think I’ll just read about the cemetery on my own and come back by myself.
