I our family went on this tour, can say it was interesting but not sure it was worth the money. We had they guide tour Nancy, did a lot of walking but never saw anything just heard things had happened previously.

The walking is at a comfortable pace. It is all walking though. It is a really fun tour. I would suggest you call them and let them know you have difficulty walking. They may suggest a day they can do it a little slower. The walk isn't more than a mile.

I believe the tours are probably closed for the season but it is a walking tour. You probably would have difficulty in the cemetery and make sure you bring a flashlight.
How much walking is involved in this tour? I have difficulty walking, and walk slower than the average person. Would this be something I should even consider? It sounds fascinating.
