Kevin was a thoughtful informed and explanatory guide who was kind to all of us.

The tour itself was okay though a bit to long for what you are seeing. They say it's priority access so you don't have to wait in line but when I asked the guide he knew nothing about it and neither did the people inside so we had to wait in line like everyone else. A total waste of money when you can buy the tickets at the memorial for way cheaper. I will be posting this to several sites to save people money.
