Saint Louis Cemetery, New Orleans Reviews - Write a Review
Each time I visit New Orleans, I always make sure to take a tour in Saint Louis Cemetery! It's so beautiful and so much history! You have to go early in the morning because any later than that, it is very hot. In any case, this is a must when in the Crescent City!
It's alright, if you're into seeing cemeteries. It's interesting to see some of the graves that are in more disrepair. Good piece of history and you don't need a tour guide unlike St. Louis Cemetery 1.
Make sure you get a tour guide or you can't go in. They check. Some tombs are in great disrepair. Others are freshly painted. The Marie Laveau tomb is fascinating. Still has sma tokens in front of her tomb as well as tiny x marks. Saw Nicholas cages future tomb. Quite odd. Lol
It's nothing but a scam you have to go in there with a tour guide and pay my personal opinion I feel like they're pimping the Dead and that's not right you should be able to walk freely in any Cemetery and choose if you want to have tour guide or not
Saint Louis Cemetery #2 is a few blocks away from Saint Louis Cemetery #1 but offers similar sights for free. A local man provided a colorful tour, complete with ghost stories and historical information for a small donation. If you're looking to check out a New Orleans cemetery but don't want to pay the ridiculous fees necessary for entry at #1 this is the place.
