Jean François is a cultivated guide, funny and attentive to his listeners. Animated by his passion, he shares it with us with dynamism and a very appreciable talent for storytelling, declamation and singing. Thank you for these 3 informative and entertaining hours (yes I did say entertaining). One regret ... the visit goes very, too quickly.

The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. He clearly knows the cemetery well and it would be extremely difficult to see the things that he showed us if you were on your own. I recommend this tour highly if you choose to go to the cemetery. It is huge!

Super interesting visit, well paced, with a great mix of small and big stories. We feel an absolutely passionate guide, and whose knowledge to share is not limited at all to what was presented to us during this visit. I warmly recommend it to you.
