After a brief history discussion we will bring you into the cemetery and distribute special equipment, for use during the tour. We will explain the equipment, how to use it, and why it works. The group will then be saged for protection. We will then proceed into the dark, as we walk along the roadways we will point out various types of burials, be it grave site, mausoleums, monuments, and cenotaphs. As we walk we may encounter residents of the cemetery, in which case we will stop and attempt to communicate with them using different methods and specialized equipment.
At the completion of your tour the Spirit Guides will collect the equipment, and as a group will again be saged to prevent you from taking home any spirits.
