Mary was just fantastic! With 7 generations of her family residing in New Orleans, Mary knew so much about the history, culture and context of the area that she was able to make our cemetery tour so meaningful. Her stories were intriguing and she had a great sense of humor. I would recommend her tour to anyone in a heartbeat!

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).
