I love the story of Marie laveau and was so excited to get married in front the the cemetery where she was laid to rest. We had a wonderful guide Matt and nice people touring with us. Definitely do it again
Our 2022 June tour

Our tour guide Candy was very kind and professional. My gripe is that for the amount of money paid for us to go on the tour all we did was walk to the cemeteries and hear some vague knowledge about them. The tour was over in under an hour and was nothing special. If you are wanting good history or spooky stories you better look elsewhere.
Tour with Geoff was 11/10

Geoff was a great tour guide! He’s very knowledgeable about the history of the city, and a great conversation! I would definitely take this tour again, and I would definitely call Geoff back up for other tours on my next trip in town. 11/10
Wonderful histoty

Our guide was excellent very caring about her group. I fell back and she came to ask if we were going to see the last place. So thoughtful. I think her name was Diane( I’m bad with names). She also was so knowledgeable. My only regret is that the cemetery was closed. I think the fee should have reflected that and the time indicated should be updated.
Not worth it
, Apr 2021
Instructions were very confusing, two different departure addresses where provided, had to run between 2 addresses to find your guide (other people on the tour also received the same confusing info). Tour was boring, and not worth the money. We could have easily visited the cemeteries and looked up the info. We only stayed for half the tour. Avoid this tour, never again
Fabulous Experience

Tyler was a fabulous tour guide! Learned more about New Orleans history from him than any classroom setting. Great insight into legend vs truth. Would recommend you don’t miss this!
Great tour!

Not as advertised
, Mar 2021
The trip was advertised as a visit to St Louis Cemetery No 1 and the voodoo history museum, but it was neither. Instead, it was a visit to the Mason's Cemetery, St Patrick's Cemetery, and the Katrina Memorial. The tour guide was good, but the trip was not all what it was advertised to be.

DJ was a wonderful guide, full of knowledge about the history of NOLA including Voodoo, cemetary history, and the history of Treme. A huge bonus was getting recommendations on places to eat and things to go from a local. Very good guide.
Great history tour
, Dec 2020
DJ was a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. We learned a lot from him. We didn’t know the cemetery wasn’t open to tour and was in the fine print which not many people read. I would have given it 5 stars if not for this. A lot of the cemeteries have a view fence so luckily we got to see inside from the outside.
