New Orleans Cemetery Tour Reviews
Touristy but interesting Jan 29, 2012
Haunted History Tours of New Orleans puts on this tour of the oldest cemetery in the city; St. Louis Cemetery. Significance? They use tombs not graves and have a tradition in families to use the same tomb (much more efficient than our graves I might add- but expensive for this prestigious location). Tombs are used since the cemetery is at sea level.
First time in the city? Take the tour especially if the history of the haunted-ness of New Orleans interests you. Or go to the cemetery if you know where it is, the hours it is open and save a buck. However, like other tours given in this city you learn about much much more than just its title, in this case where people were buried or placed after death.
Fun fact- Marie Laveau has her tomb there. She was instrumental in Voodoo in New Orleans.
tour is $20/person
