Our tour with Robi was fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and interesting. The cemetery itself is a fascinating place to visit, and Robi added to our experience by providing a truly interesting narrative.

ITINERARY

Walk through St. Louis Cemetery #1, the site of the classic movie "Easy Rider," as your professional licensed guide recounts the background of the famous and infamous people who are buried there. Make a wish or cast a spell at the tomb of Marie Laveau - the Voodoo Queen of New Orleans - and discover how she was able to be in two places at once. Listen to the evolution of Voodoo - which is still practiced today - and learn how it became such a factor in the Crescent City.

Learn about our unique above-ground burial customs and the tombs of various "societies." Also find out what "Gris-Gris" means and discover the mysterious ingredients in your souvenir “Gris-Gris” bag.

Cemetery closed on some holidays. Tour length: 2 hours (approximate).
