They say the freaks come out at night, but so will your small group, led by a master storyteller. The destination? New Orleans' oldest active cemetery: St Louis. Founded in 1789 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, St Louis Cemetery is the final resting place of infamous and famous characters such as Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, slave holder Delphine LaLaurie, and the pirate-smuggler-architect Barthelemy Lafon.
