Went with the Gray Line tour for this event. Our tour guide was named Gray; how convenient. She told of the story of how Marie Laveau came to be known as the voodoo queen of New Orleans. And it was an overcast day which made...More
I have visited many cemeteries in NOLA but this is my favorite by far. Located in the Treme, I enjoyed the short walk from the FQ to this cemetery - coincidentally the one from the film Easy Rider. I love the oldness of it and...More

She was particularly knowledgable of not only the cemetery but also the history and culture through the antebellum...More

There are several different companies that offers tours here. You would need to check with the tour operator that you were considering. There are some areas of the cemetery that are narrow and some places are uneven. However, I imagine the more experienced companies have been asked this before and they would know the best route through. You need to make reservations in advance (access is only granted as part of a tour due to vandalism), so ask this question before you book.
