Truly mind blowing. Our tour guide was very genuine, you could tell his absolutely loves what he does! If older adult, request a wheel chair as there is a considerable amount of walking.

We knew the facility existed, but never toured it. Interesting to see and learn the history. We were part of a group tour and the tour guide knew her material.
