If you want a nice not-so-scary, and interesting adventure for only $10.00, I would highly recommend this tour. Did I witness evidence of another plane? You Bet! Check it out for yourself and become a believer!

My husband, 16 year old daughter, and I took part in the East Cemetery Hill walk on a Monday night. Our tour guide was very good and told some interesting stories. We enjoyed our walk and were entertained. It was worth the $10.
