Bus was cool and weather hot and muggy. Some of the tombs were impressive.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 9 May 2012

Having been to New Orleans on many occassions, this is the first time that I actually took a tour and on this tour, our guide gave us the history of the cemetary and explained how people were buried.

“Very interesting, 'must see' place”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

Metairie cemetery is one of the most interesting places in New Orleans. The cemetary itself is in an easy location. The cemetery is just beautiful. There are numerous notable people buried here but other crypts were also beautiful and interesting. The monuments are worth seing, and the history is interesting. Unlike the city, the cemetery is clean and quiet. Must see places in NewOrleans.
