I learned a great deal in 2 hours about the history of new Orleans, funeral practices, medical practices of the past and religious and spiritual history of the City. Our guide, Tony, was amazing and as I eavesdropped on a few other tours as they went by, I could tell that we were getting a much better tour than others. We did this tour early in our visit to NO, and it informed us throughout our stay. Take it early in the morning though. It gets hot in the afternoon.
