Itinerary
After connecting with your guide and group near St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in central New Orleans, enter the gates of the city's oldest graveyard, known for its ornate yet crumbling tombs and reports of paranormal activity.

Archdiocese rules now forbid visitors to enter alone, so a licensed guided tour is the only way to explore this legendary site. Learn about the long history of the cemetery, which holds the remains of more than 100,000 people, and New Orleans’ unique above-ground burial practices from your guide.

Take pictures as your guide leads you to some of the most interesting and important family tombs, including the alleged final resting place of famed voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau. Perform a special group ritual and blessing here at America’s second-most visited grave (after that of Elvis).

The tour ends at the cemetery gates.

Brione was excellent

Excellent walk that culminated with our tour of the small cemetery. It actually lasted a total of 2 hours 40 minutes which was a very nice pace. I don’t know if I spelled her name correctly, but Brie (she said just like the cheese) was...More

We just took a FANTASTIC cemetery tour with Randy! He is an expert storyteller, sharing facts and lore about New Orleans and the people who once lived (and died) here. This is one tour that shouldn’t be missed!

Best tour for your money!

Our tour guide, Brie (as in the cheese but she's not cheesy!) was amazing. She's a New Orleans native that gives you a locals perspective during the tour. The tour includes more than just the cemetery; Brie discussed the history of the French Quarter, the...More
