We signed up for the Cemeteries and Voodoo tour. David did a wonderful job talking about St. Louis Cemetery 1 and giving us a bit of context. Lots of interesting stuff. I'd hoped for a bit more voodoo in terms of context or more about Condi square and Treme. That being said, tours was very informative and we enjoyed it.

If you remember "Easy Rider" this cemetery will look familiar. In any weather you can photograph and get amazing results all the while soaking in the history of NOLA. Then there is the music (it's everywhere), the food and the culture, all in one place.

Great tour, just very hot this time of year. Was our first trip to NOLA and wanted to do some kind of tour on the quick day trip that we had so we could learn some history. Our guide, David, was very knowledgable and informative. Like dummies, we brought but forgot our umbrellas in the car which I do not... More

My husband and I just got back from another fantastic trip to New Orleans, and were so happy that we did the tour! It is very hot during this time of year, so I would've preferred to go to the tour earlier in the morning but our schedule didn't permit it. Either way we really enjoyed it. We were advised... More

Went on two tours by Historic New Orleans Tours. Both were very interesting and very different from one another. The first day we were in the French Quarter we went on the Scandalous Cocktail Tour it was so interesting hearing how things had began in the FQ so many years ago. We heard stories about each place we visited and... More

Wonderfully informative. A bit long and VERY hot. We brought our 2 and 7 year old and it was not ideal for them but we all survived and in all fairness that may skew my review a bit. First off, look for a Groupon and you can cut the cost almost in half. (Normally $20 per person, I found a... More

Enjoyed the history after taking both the cemetery / voodoo tour and the haunted tour. It was hot in July but well worth it. Tony did the cemetery tour and did an awesome job about telling what was real and what was fake. Ina really knew the history of all the buildings we saw on the haunted night tour. Although... More

My sister and I took both walking tours and we had a great time! Well worth the time and a ton of interesting info. Very reasonable cost and we will take different tours on our next visit. A must for first time visitors to get the lay of the land and get in the NOLA mood!

I've traveled and done tours all over the world and this company is by far the best tour leaders I've ever experienced. We did the French Quarter and Garden District and wish we had time to do the others. Next time!

In July is not the time of year to do a walking tour of the cemetery. HOT! It was interesting to see a NOLA cemetery. Tour guide was good, probably would have been better if it wasn't 95 degrees.
