We went on the St. Louis #1 cemetery tour. Tony was our guide a local and talked about more then just the cemetery. It was a full 2 hours and we got a lot of great info and insight not only about the cemetery but about the New Orleans history and the people involved. We have been to the city several times and still learned all kinds of new things. Great info highly recommend.

I visited this cemetery on my Garden district tour. I am afraid that this cemetery is not as well kept and some of the tombs are is disrepair. This is because of vandalism and some for lack of care. The local authority must take more care of this historical site to preserve its history.

Great tour- our guide, Pat, was very knowledgeable and personable. Toured St. Louis #1. Tour lasted a little over an hour but it was just the right amount of time. Would encourage anyone interested in history and hearing stories from a local Nola guide to take advantage of this society's tours.
