Absolutely fantastic. Rick did a great job and was very informative about the history that took place. At the end of the tour, I took a picture of the church and got a picture of an orb. Those two pictures were taken back to back.

I think so. As the other people said it is more about stories than scaring people. Our guide, Rick is a historian as well as an entertainer.
