Leaving the tour and “touring on my own”. Wanted more knowledge about the graves and not so in depth about the way people died she was way too wordy and did not walk it’s certain groups for too long and it was boring. Boring.

This was my 3rd tour of the Bonaventure Cemetery, 2nd with Shannon Scott's tour company - the 1st of which was with Shannon himself, and this one was with Jessica. Hands down, his tour company is the most informative, and both he and Jessica did a great job of covering various topics, each with a bit different emphasis on some topics. I highly recommend using them any time you come out.
