Overview

Unlock the secrets of New Orleans’ oldest and most famous graveyard in a short amount of time with this tour of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. A guided tour is a must as it’s the only way to enter due to archdiocese rules. Walk among elaborate family vaults and the tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, and learn about the city’s above-ground burial practices from a guide.

What to Expect

Connect with your guide in the French Quarter and take a short walk to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, the oldest and most legendary of New Orleans’ “Cities of the Dead.” Learn about the history of burial in New Orleans, including the city’s distinctive above-ground methods that are necessary when below sea level.

Enter the cemetery gates with your guide for a 1-mile walk through cobblestone avenues and elaborate burial vaults you may recognize from films like Easy Rider. Because of archdiocese regulations, visitors cannot enter most New Orleans cemeteries alone, so a guided tour is the only way to go. See the tombs of prominent Louisiana families, and hear the legends that swirl around the the alleged final resting place of voodoo queen Marie Laveau.

The tour ends at Basin Street Station.

Tour guide was remarkably odd

Would have liked to have the tour be more about the Cemetery with less distractions from the eccentric tour guide.

Well, at least we got in.

The tour started with meeting Angel as she was berating a man on the street. I wasn’t prepared for someone dressed in Goth attire but hey, maybe she also does ghost tours later. During the walk to the cemetery, she made loud, passive aggressive comments...More
