Our tour guide Charles was very friendly, informative & gave us tips on things to do and see around the city. It's hot in the cemetery, so better to go early & bring water.

Not at all morbid - the history here is amazing and even viewing the crypts (which are very different frommy home country of NZ) are interesting to see. We were lucky enough to have a guide who told us a lot about the history of...More
This is a fun stop to make while in NOLA. Due to some past vandals, the cemetery is now controlled entry. What that means is you must hire a guide to go inside. That is the best way to see it anyway. Lots of stories...More
The entry fee is $1 to the ArchDiocesis and that's about what it should be. Not much to see and the VooDoo Queen's grave is a tiny plaque on the bottom of a crypt. The "make-a-wish" XXX is something a tour guide made up and...More

Grey was our tour guide for Grayline Tours. She was great and the tour of Cemetery 1 and learning about the burial process was fascinating. I definitely recommend the cemetery tour. We also took the city tour and it included a cemetary much newer but...More
Cemeteries are very unique in New Orleans. I would recommend a city tour that visits one of the many cemeteries so you can learn about them. This one is particularly neat.
This is the only cemetery in town where you need a guided tour. Due to vandals, they no longer allow you to explore on your own. I jumped into a tour, and it was incredible to hear the stories. It was much better to have...More
