  • Great way to learn a little NOLA history. Ernie was a great guide. He was very well informed and imparted his knowledge in a fun, interesting manner. This tour involved a bit of walking and he was very considerate of those of us who were slow walkers.

  • Tour was great but new rules at the cemetary require you to stay within view of your guide which makes it difficult to get good pictures. I did this tour 2 years ago and it wasn't like that.

  • My wife came down sick, unable to go so I went myself. The guide was incredible. He did a great job dispute the fact that as soon as we got to the cemetery gates, the heavens opened up with a massive thunder, lightning, wind ,, and heavy rain storm and would not stop.the cemetery was closed as they turned was away. Never got to see it. Guide walked us to nearby museum and talked us thru it. He did a great job dispute us never getting in. He refunded cash to all who bought tickets directly from him that day. I did not worry about refund as he did a great job. Would highly recommend this tour. Besides I found the walk back to the motel in the pouring pouring rain Fun!!

  • We had a blast on this tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor.

  • Great! Our guide knew the history of the cemetery that we went too and gave great information about the various parts of the cemetery...I would highly recommend this tour!

  • We did the tour and our tour guide was Ernest, he was very informative about not only the history of the cemetery, but the city. The tour started and ended on time and wasn't too terribly much walking. I would highly recommend.
