“Cemeteries are fascinating!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Being in to genealogy, I am fascinated by cemeteries and I think New Orleans cemeteries are the most amazing I have ever visited in this country. This was a totally new experience for us and going to a New Orleans cemetery should be on every visitors list to "to dos"

“A 'must see' Cemetery”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

When you picture a New Orleans museum in your head - this museum is the image that will appear. It is the 'must see' attraction for people who want to see old above ground burials.

“Take a Tour”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The cemetery is an amazing place. We found that we got much more out of our visit by taking a tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and explained many things we would have missed had we made the trip on our own.

“Amazing cemetery”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

I love cemeteries and this is one of the coolest I`ve every been to. We took a tour with Save our Cemeteries and I`d highly recommend them. We weren`t interested in a sensational ghost tour and Brad delivered with an informative account of burial practice and history of the cemetery. There were a lot of people in the cemetery so we felt safe wandering around a bit more after our tour. Lots of warnings about safety, not sure if there`s anyone actually has been attacked. You do need a tour to get the most out of the experience though.

“A must see!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Take a look. I've never seen anything like it! Take the tram but check the opening hours, there's a very good pub, the bulldog near by for lunch/ a huge variety of craft beers
