  • Very interesting! A bit gory for some people, as they demonstrate what early surgery was like -- and it was not very pleasant. Little kids who like blood and gore will particularly get a kick out of this, and I imagine Halloween time is a big thrill here. We really enjoyed ourselves on this tour.
  • This was chosen on a whim. And it was worth it! Our guide explained everything in great detail. He was funny and very informative. For a dude that "had just been hit by a car a few days ago" (his words) he was great. Would recommend!!
