Toured St. Louis#1 in the pouring rain...don't let the weather stop you. We met up at Basin St. Station and got the background information. The two hour tour was informative and the backdrop of pouring rain and gray skies shifting into sunny made the tour even better. Guide was very knowledgeable...he did not stick to a script. He answered questions... More

The name of this cemetery confused me at first, St. Louis #1. But once I realized that the St. Louis #1 is the name of a New Orleans cemetery, everything was fine. This cemetery is old and interesting! Our guide explained the history of the cemetery and how burial evolved over the centuries here in New Orleans. Being from South... More

We took a tour with the Save Our Cemeteries. Our tour guide seemed like he memorized his speech (which is fine, but it was a little awkward when he forgot his place). overall we learned a lot about the cemetery and very enjoyable. Tour lasted a little over an hour. I like that our $20pp goes towards restoration of the... More

The tour overall was great. $20 a person isn't bad. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable any questions we had she answered. Of course it's free to get in but with the tour you learn and you also donate to the restoration of the historical cemeteries here in Louisiana.

Please take a guided tour. The Cemeteries are beautiful works of art, but can be dangerous. They are a must see.

The oldest ones are in town----]'[ The oldest ones are in downtown. Some still in tack, some crumbling. BE CAREFUL---not the safest place---lock car and don't have valuables showing. #1-#2 close at 3:00 pm.

Book this one thru Save our Cemeteries web site. You will be helping fund restoration work. The volunteer guides are licensed like other tour companies and the cost is about the same. It was very hot on Sunday morning. But They did give us nice souvenir hand fans that we used all day.

Like most people, I too wanted to see and get information about how burials are conducted in New Orleans. I was not disappointed. I took a guided tour (VIP Tours) and our guide did a superb job of explaining and answering questions. So, if you seek knowledge, you too should check this out.

We took a bus tour which stopped at Cemetery #3. This is a haunting place during the daylight. I would have liked to have a couple of hours to wander here. As it was we only had about 10-15 minutes. Our tour guide gave us an overview which I listened to from a distance because I was busy taking photographs.... More
