    Don was such a great tour guide and probably knows more Orlando trivia than anyone you'll ever meet. I'd love it if he hosted an Orlando Trivia game at a pub some time!

      I'll discuss that idea with him when I meet with him to discuss other business matters.

    What is the parking situation at this location?

    September 20, 2013

    • Lloyd

      Honestly, the parking sucks. Get there early. There's parking on the road to the cemetery. There's some other streets in the neighborhood.

      Hi. The link didn't work for me. I also went to the main page and could not find a link for history tours. I tried to open the 'history page' and it wouldn't open either.

      September 7, 2013

    • Lloyd

      I'm not sure what to tell you since I just tried the link myself and it works. Try clearing your browser's cache and try it again. If it still doesn't work try calling them at[masked] and the address is:

      Greenwood Cemetery
      1603 Greenwood Street
      Orlando, FL 32801

      Just go to Google Maps (https://maps.google.co...­) and put in the address and it will show you where it is.

      I'm sorry the link didn't work for you though, that's very odd.

    Due to high demand I'm going to try to get additional reservations for our group on a later tour, not this one.

    Any cost associated with this?

    • Lloyd

      It's free. I just added that to the event description.

    • Lloyd

      I just wanted to let people know that I will try to create cost free events. I'm doing this because I too don't have much money to spend on events. So, I'll be making events that hopefully everyone can enjoy with minimal or no expense.

    Guys, for those who are not familiar, the tour is mostly about the history of Orlando, especially in conjunction with the persons buried in that cemetery. This tour does not focus on anything ghoulish or deal much with death and burial. It's mostly about the history.

    What an interesting event!

  • Lloyd

    I've been on this tour in the past. It's fun and informative about the people who founded Orlando and some history of other people from the area.
