A must in New Orleans

Justin was amazing. He is both witty and an excellent story teller. He knows so much information about the cemetery.
Epic adventure

Way to go Richard the tour guide. Give this man a raise. What a personality. Pure gold. 2 hour tour not too much walking and good photo opportunities. We went when there were like 6 groups touring the cemetery so that was annoying.

Our family all liked the tour and the tour guide! Robert was a history teacher and knew lots of little facts about the old ways of New Orleans!
Awesome Tour!

Our guide Dylan was so knowledgeable and very entertaining. We really enjoyed the tour. The cemetery is small and there were a lot of other groups in there at the same time (you can’t go without a guide) so it was a bit overwhelming and hard to hear when everyone was talking but we highly recommend it!
Great tour

Justin was a great tour guide. He really made learning fun, and we enjoyed learning not only about the cemetery but also about the history of the French Quarter, voodoo, and more. Thanks, Justin!
Great guide

Our guide, Lee, was funny, articulate and full of great stories. The tour itself was interesting enough. I think Lee's humor and flair is what made it as good as it was, and not so much the cemetery itself.
Excellent Adventure!

Mary J. was an outstanding guide and shared so much about present and historical New Orleans. We had an amazing afternoon learning about cemetery practices and history. Our guide was alert to the needs of our group (it was quite hot that day!) and she was an excellent story-teller. I recommend this tour for everyone who wants to learn about the amazing city of New Orleans!
Very cool!!

We did our tour with Ms. Angela who was one of the best guides I have had on various other tours. She was very upbeat, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the cemetery. She knew how to pace the tour and was great with checking in on everyone ( it was a warm day and the cemetery can get even warmer). Thank you for a great tour!
Great Experience

Our tour guide, Miss Angela, was great! We will be doing other tours with the same company during our next visit.
