5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

This was one of the best tours we did whilst visiting NOLA.
Our tour guide Kim was fantastic, albeit a little quirky, which after reading earlier reviews I guess wasn't to everyone's taste. We found Kim knowledgable, entertaining and willing to answer any questions thrown at her.

Don't let the few negative reviews below put you off this tour.

Everywhere you look there is another tour. Ghost tours, cemetery tours, carriage tours...etc. I thought this was one of the best. Very reliable tour guide. Seems like everywhere we turned someone knew her. Very experienced company. I highly recommend them.

Our tour guide Angel was okay. I heard other tour guides giving more historic information about the cemetery...made me wish we had another guide.

Knowledgeable and colourful tour guide. Only regret we got rain, but can't control that.

Wonderful, detailed tour. Really enjoyed the tour guide. Some political comments made in the beginning were a bit odd to hear, but overall she was pleasant and passionate.

The group was small and the guide dressed the part. Lots of great information was given.

Our guide had obviously been drinking before we met her for the tour. She was knowledgeable about the city and the cemetery but her inebriation caused her to keep repeating herself and was a distraction. She might be a really good guide if she addresses what is obviously a problem. But, hey, it was a 10 tour so we got what we paid for. I might have been upset if we'd paid 20 a piece like some people we met had done.

WOW...So we were looking to see the graveyards and not spend a lot of money, so this one was cheap...you get what you pay for...first of all, they have you meet at a building that is for sale, Kim, the guide, just clips her sign to the door, then folds it back up into her purse...Kim looked like a drunk homeless person, it took us a minute to realize that she was part of the tour. She approached us yelling a name that was not ours and finally I said That's not my name, why are you continuing to yell it at me like I don't speak English?. SHe then verified our names and gave us a sticker to get in...Mind you she has muttered obscenities to people walking by more than one and seriously, we are still pretty sure she was drunk...Her tour was filled with inaccurate historical data and many personal stories that didn't make any sense...She also kept answering her phone yelling I'm on a tour right now, then would say That's the boss lady calling...We have affectionately called this the trailer park graveyard tour, it is fitting, trust me...so, if you just want to pay 10 bucks to get into the graveyard and look up the walking tour that is online, the numbers to the tour are still on the ground little metal disks next to each description, then this is your tour...If you want an actual tour, then spend the money for a professional...I have been to NOLA many times and visited the graveyards on a quality tour in the past...this was a joke...I went with people who had never been and filled them in on the real history along the way...
