Other than our tour guide wearing a bellie shirt, the tour was informative and definitely interesting. We did stop at a voodoo shop and the voodoo museum but we didn't go in. I kinda wanted to spend time at the shop and the museum versus walking by it and expected to go back if you wanted to visit. The cemetery was a little crowded and felt a little rushed but seeing the stone crypts and mausoleums and learning how the dead are processed was cool. I wish the tour was scarier... more stories of voodoo versus the what voodoo is.
