Mary LaCost (Scary Mary) was our tour guide and she made this just a wonderful experience. We learned much about the history of New Orleans and made a special stop at the tomb of Marie LaVeaux...holding our "girs-gris" bags and making our wishes! Mary was especially concerned about our welfare in the New Orleans heat...every one received a complimentary bottle of water and strict instructions (and reminders) to stay in the shade! In a word it was fascinating!
This was an amazing tour if you like that sort of thing. My husband and I had already been on couple of different tours so we were afraid that we had heard it all already but our tour guide was very informative and was always ready to answer any questions we had despite the fact we were melting in the sun. HAHAHA.
We truly enjoyed our walking tour of Saint Louis Cemetery in New Orleans. The gentleman who was our guide was full of not only cemetery knowledge but added so much color commentary about New Orleans and its rich history. If you enjoy history and are as fascinated with historical artifacts and markers, you'll love it.
I went on the Garden District tour and the Voodoo cemetary tour. Two different guides but both were excellent!!! I actually lived in New Orleans at one time and had not had the opportunity to really appreciate the flavor and history. This was fantastic I would definitely recommend. Really enjoyed it and may go back for the Natchez Riverboat tour.
Excellent. Would recommend this for everyone. Just add Delphine McCarty/ Lalaurie to list of tombs to see.
This is a great start to the history of New Orleans, Our guide (Pat) told the stories of the people who "live" there in a way that made them come alive...even telling us the scandal and gossip of their day. Especially interesting were the customs and rituals of the era and how it has translated to today. No feeling of being rushed through, yet Pat kept us moving. This tour is a MUST.
