Interesting tour

Been to NOLA several times and given a few extra days this time, I decided to explore some true local history. I found the tour interesting, yet a bit short and rushed. There were other tours being held which seemed to give their groups way more details to enhance their experience.

I appreciated that he did not try to sensationalize any of the information give on the cemetery, he gave truth regard graves, and was very well informed give his research and authoring of books.

Thank you for your review! Mikko is quite entertaining & does know his history! Please visit again soon!
Very informative and enjoyable...two things I don’t usually relate to when I visit a cemetery.

We found the tour interesting and our tour guide even more interesting. Nikko I believe was his name. He provided worthwhile and amusing history of the cemetery and some of the famous people buried there. His narrative was enjoyable to listen to and his wit and humour added to an informative and enjoyable tour. Special mention to Nicole and his knowledge about Canadians.

This was a very interesting tour. So many questions that you may not have even known you had were answered. Our guide shared fascinating histories/back stories of many who were resting there eternally. The artwork and archetecture of some of these crypts was really quite lovely. I’m definitely glad that I booked this tour.

They charged us for four people, we only had two, now to try to get our money back. Hope we can get results.
Response from Host , Jul 2019
All you had to do was call TripAdvisor & they should take care of your refund, if you only booked for 2. Thank you for your business!

It was o.k. the meeting place should be changed, must have been garbage day. Guide had some interesting stories. It was a bit fast. May consider taking combo tour.
Response from Host , Jul 2019
Thank you for your review. We are not allowed to meet at the cemetery, due to their walk up business. We meet in the Quarter, at 710 St. Louis, so you may get some pre-cemetery history & a little French Quarter, as well.

Tour guide did not wait for all participants to gather before talking about the cemetery. She also would turn away during her talks which made her hard to hear.

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.

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.
