  • I had actually been on the tour before, but I had bought it again so my husband could go. He seemed to thoroughly enjoy the commentary and I even learned some new things!

  • This tour was great. Learned a lot about New Orleans history.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. According New city regulations, visitors may only visit with a guide.
    Very knowledgeable guide and interesting trivia.
    Was a bit too long for me, but definitely worthwhile.

  • The history of the cemetery was very informative, and our guide was very gracious. She took time to explain things and gave us time to explore the different tombs that are present in the Cemetery.

  • Loved it!!

  • I really love this city and enjoyed the cemetery tour again! The guide was great and we had an amazing time.

  • What a great tour! Our guide Lenna was very knowledgeable and so funny. We came from Pittsburgh but toured with our friends from NOLA. They too learned a lot and are now recommending that their friend take this tour. Thank you for a great tour. We can and #39;t wait to come back!

  • The tour was very informative and it was great to see this aspect of the city. You have to take a tour in order to see this cemetery and we were really glad we did. My mother-in-law wanted to take this tour and she throughly enjoyed it. She was raised in New Orleans but had never done a cemetery tour. Our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable!

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable and made our tour very interesting. She was funny and kept it real!

  • Our tour guide, Robert, is a history major and very knowledgeable. It was a really interesting tour with lots of information and some bad jokes along the way. Well worth the 20 to see Nicholas Cages pyramid.
