If you are looking for an outdoors, informative experience, this is definitively a must-do in NOLA. The tour lasts 2 hours. The tour meeting point was at the Royal Cafe Beignet, which... More

May 2015, Our tour guide Gwen a Native of New Orleans was excellent, knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and courteous. The pace was very good for some of our seniors and handicapped within the group. We saw, and were given historical information on many interesting sites within the cemetary including the resting place of Maria Laveau. Highly recommended

W really enjoyed this tour. We were on a bus for most of it but got off a few times. We walked around the cemetary and stopped at a park for coffee and beignets which were delicious and cost was included in the tour. We learned lots about the amazing city and saw many different areas. I would recommend.

Our guide Milton was excellent. He was from the area and very knowledgable. He was very funny and informative. Looked out for all the people on the tour as it was a hot day and he was finding them shade when he could!!!!

We booked the Cemetery and Voodoo Tour and Milton was our guide. He was absolutely brilliant. So knowledgeable and really funny and engaging. Well worth the $20 we paid each!

We really enjoyed our tour and found our guide to be incredibly knowledgeable, interesting and fun. It was especially nice that the tour included both some garden district homes and Lafayette I cemetery.

Our guide was superb! Historically accurate, smart, funny and interesting. Especially loved that he dispelled the myths surrounding voodoo. Highly recommended.
