5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Tour was very interesting but did not realize we would have to walk a good distance to get there. I think it would be better to meet at the front of the cemetery to start the tour.

It was very informative and fun. The information given was not so overwhelming and was very interesting. It was the right amount of walking through the French Quarter to the cemetery.

Interesting tour through the St. Louis cemetery. Our guide Diane was very knowledgeable regarding burial practices and voodoo as practiced in New Orleans. There is not much shade in the cemetery so I suggest the morning tour before the sun is blazing in the afternoon. During this tour we also had a chance to walk through Louis Armstrong park. The tour ended at Marie Laveau's house.

Ina was a very good tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and personable. I particularly liked that the tour was historical and not theatrical. She made sure that the group was not standing around in the sun on this hot day when she was able. My only criticism is of the booking agency Viator. We booked and paid for out tickets online and she spent 10 minutes attempting to verify this while everyone stood around and waited. Even though I had all the information on my phone she couldn't verify it on her end. Overall I would say it was a good experience.
