“Great, just make sure you bring sunscreen!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We took a walking tour here as a family, something to kill time before my wedding. It was a lot of fun. The cemetery is really interesting, and full of wonderful history. That said, there is not one little bit of shade, so make sure that you've got your sunscreen on! We had several burnt members of the bridal party! lol

“Fascinating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We were told not to walk here alone so came as part of a carriage tour from Jackson Square. So atmospheric and fascinating, learnt so much and could have spent hours there reading the inscriptions and looking at the ornately carved stonework. Marie Laveau's tomb with its graffiti and offerings is very interesting indeed, makes you want to learn more about her life. Definitely don't miss the opportunity to see something so unique to New Orleans. Look out for Nic Cages burial plot, the white pyramid.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a must see for anyone traveling to N.O. We were lucky enough to hear about the history of all cemeteries in N.O. while on our plantation tour.

“Interesting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Took the tour through "Haunted Tours". Our guide was very knowlegable. There is a fee of $20; fortunately we had a coupon for $3 off. One can walk through the cemetary free, but having a guide makes the experience facinating.
