This was excellent. My friend and I were lucky enough to have a personal tour, as it was not busy last week. Mike was awesome, and we learned so much about the history of the city, and the people past and present. He answered every question, and and made our day a very enjoyable experience.

My husband and I took this walking tour with Michael Naughton. We were actually the only people on the tour. We started in the French Quarter and walked to St. Louis No. 1 Cemetary. Mike was very informed about the city and the cemetery and answered all of our questions about voodoo. I'm very glad we took this tour and I highly recommend it. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes and bring water and a hat it was scorching hot even in November and there was no shade in the cemetery.

Excellent tour! My guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable and willing to explain details. I highly recommend taking this tour - the St Louis cemetery is amazing and only accessible if you have a licensed guide again, Mike was super knowledgeable about and respectful of this fascinating final resting place.
