Paying Homage to our Fallen

Guide was very informative and appreciate that we were able to pay our respects to the fallen heroes of our country. These men and women will never be forgotten and that’s what we instill in our 12-yr old….

The Changing of the Guard. The guide seemed to be racing and really didn’t care about people keeping up, hardly could hear what he said. I think it would have been better to see less but didn’t have to race. Realize he had to get us to Changing of the Guide. Because of that would not recommend

Liam was a most excellent tour guide. He brought so much history to life by sharing his knowledge of the cemetery. He spoke clearly and kept everyone’s attention. We thoroughly enjoyed this experience with such a great guide. He made sure we had a great view of the changing of the guards and just knew so much about this special place! A big thanks to Liam!!
