We chose a tour we paid for and got our monies worth! The information about the city leading up to the cemetery was great, and the guide was considerate about getting us in the shade for her stops to talk.

I did "Free Walking Tours", it was great tour with lots of history and information. I had an awesome tour guide, Kathy. We met in the French Quarter and walked to the cemetery with stops along the way to learn about the FQ. Probably not...More

We took the Trolly to the Cemetery to rest up after some long hikes. This was a real treat to see all the different gravesites. Its worth the time to venture outside of the city to take a look.

If you're into cemeteries, then find a suitable tour and learn a little about NOLA's past. We enjoyed the stop.

To learn how the families bury their members and that they only bury Catholics. It is amazing how certain families take care of their people buried above the ground. Certain families maintain their own buriels and some the Catholic Church takes care of them.

Michael was our tour guide from Voodoo Bone Ladies tours. Very interesting and fun. We learned a lot of extra things about New Orleans. Definitely worth taking the tour.
