Overview

Unlock the secrets of New Orleans’ oldest and most famous graveyard in a short amount of time with this tour of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. A guided tour is a must as it’s the only way to enter due to archdiocese rules. Walk among elaborate family vaults and the tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, and learn about the city’s above-ground burial practices from a guide.

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 1-mile 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 the alleged final resting place of voodoo queen Marie Laveau.

The tour ends at Basin Street Station.

Drunk, Incoherent Tour Guide

Our tour guide, Angel, was not only visibly intoxicated, but was actually drinking when we arrived for the tour. It was certainly entertaining, however that's the only real positive I can think to add.

Worst tour I have ever taken

This was the worst tour I have ever been on. Our guide was incoherent, rambling, rude, and unable to answer basic questions. After letting the tour operator know we were unhappy with the experience, they refused to give us any decent customer service nor refund...More

You took the entire tour, wandering off in the cemetery, which is against the rules. I spoke to the tour guide immediately after speaking with you, who absolutely was NOT incoherent, rambling, rude, etc. I did speak with you several times, verbally & through text....More

Just okay

It wasn’t great, wasn’t bad either. Seemed like some things were not accurate, but it was still better than walking around the cemetery without any info.

It is best to sign up ahead. However, while we were there, some people who arrived earlier were allowed to join before the tour started, but cash only. May depend upon the tour guide.
