Our guide was standing in front of the Suoteme Courthouse (400 royal st) with no mention anywhere if this excursion. We walked pasted her 2x, almost giving up finding such of this Excursion. Voodoo commentary section was short and weak and cemetary is closed to the public.

Doug Presley was a great storyteller and he made the experience fun. Some of the stories about the old buildings and the things that may or may not have happened there were especially creepy! Doug was an engaging guy who had obvious enthusiasm for the subject matter.
