We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was interesting and informative.
Only 4 star coz it was pouring rain The guide we had was super informative and funny.
This tour was very informative and fun! I highly recommend this tour if you are interested in traditions and dose of history!
We went with Sandy to St Louis cemetery 1 on a beautiful cloudy day. They were doing lots of construction work around the area, and it was a little hard to hear our guide. She was very knowledgable about burial practices in New Orleans and had a great, dry sense of humor, but sometimes we just simply couldn't hear her. Being inside the cemetery was very interesting and we learned a lot. There was not much information about VooDoo, but it was a very cool tour.
The tour guide was great and knowledgeable. The only downsides were there were too many other tours also in the same space and the Voodoo aspect was very limited although we were told that would be more accurate.
Interesting tour, but busy with other tour groups at the same time, although this is likely unavoidable.
Cemetery tours are not my regular tour option. However, it was suggested by a friend and I'm really pleased I went. Our guide was quite passionate about her subject matter and it was a very interesting and informative tour
This was a good tour but I wouldn't want to go on hot day guide was great
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and personable. Enjoyed this tour very much.
Interesting but not sure why it's called Voodoo--our guide did not discuss this much only when at Marie's grave. The graves she stopped at and pointed out were interesting and historical. There is no way i could have learned or known as much on my own so worth the trip.
Our guide, Judy, was very knowledgable, informative and accommodating, when asking questions and/or assisting you to get the most of your tour.
Overall, it was still worth a visit and you do need a guide to get the most from it.
A bit light on the Voodoo, we expected more information about this topic.
There definitely is allot of history in the cemeteries, I learned so much from our tour guide it was almost a little boring. There were times it was very interesting and times I really was not listening. It was hot and muggy I am sure that did not help as well.
It was pouring but our tour guide was a trooper, her love for NOLA shows . She is very educated on the history. The cemetery was amazing to view the tombs and hear the stories. Despite the weather , still thoroughly enjoyed tour.
Great, Informative tour. If you plan on going in August bring a fan!
To be fair it was an incredibly hot day so I have to hand it to the guide for making this as enjoyable as she did. We learned many things about the Cemetery and it's unusual traditional above ground burials.,but there was not a huge amount of information on voodoo which was advertised in the description. Still an interesting morning that i recommend.
This tour was a good overview of the first cemetery in New Orleans - learned lots of facts, saw lots of very old (and some new) above ground crypts. Our guide, Jill, was very nice and this tour was good overall.
Tour guide was very knowledgable, had a great personality, made the tour very enjoyable
It was pretty informative. Guide needed to speak up when talking on the bus.
Although I cannot remember our tour guides name, she was a little firecracker of a little old lady. She was very informative and knowledgeable about the cemetery. However, the girls I was traveling with were a little disappointed in the upkeep of the cemetery. The big draw for us was Marie Laveau's tomb. On websites I researched, they encouraged people to bring a gift and a sharpie to make your wish on her tomb. We were told that this practice is discouraged. We also observed several other tombs in the cemetery with the famous three "x's" on them, however there were no name plates identifying who they may be. Overall, my companions and I were happy with this tour.
