About

Jazz funerals, Voodoo, yellow fever, and civil rights…these are just some of the intriguing topics we will cover on our small group tour through one of New Orleans’ most interesting cemeteries.

St. Louis Cemetery #1 houses some of the city’s oldest graves as well as many of its most notable past residents. You’ll discover how people are “buried” in the above-ground tombs and learn to recognize cemetery symbolism. We will stop by the future resting place of actor Nicholas Cage, and no visit to this cemetery is complete without seeing one of the most visited grave sites in the country — that of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau.

Take an unforgettable walk with us through a place that can only be entered with a licensed tour guide approved through the Archdiocese of New Orleans. A portion of every ticket will go back to the cemetery for preservation of these historic tombs.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. We also recommend bringing a bottle of water in summer. At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately).


Where Do We Meet?

We’ll meet at Mister Gregory’s Cafe at 806 N Rampart Street, New Orleans, LA 70116.
