  • Express tour of the famous St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans
  • Enter the city's oldest graveyard with a licensed guide, the only way in
  • See the legendary tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau
  • This short tour a great option for visitors with limited time
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 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 alleged final resting place of voodoo queen Marie Laveau. The tour ends at Basin Street Station.

Great tour. Guide was very informative. Had 3 tiny travelers with us and this tour was the perfect fit; lots of history for the adults, not too tedious for the kids.
