Description

Step back into the late 1700s and delve into the intriguing cemetery lore that shaped New Orleans' history. Licensed tour guides help you explore cemetery haunts like the tomb of Voodoo queen Marie Laveau and teach you about old burial customs.

The adventure begins just 8 blocks from the Mississippi River, where St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 sits—the oldest Roman Catholic cemetery in New Orleans and home to some of the most infamous New Orleanians. Experience the spine-chilling feeling you get from learning true stories of the figures that now haunt the area, including high priestess Marie Laveau, the renowned Voodoo queen of New Orleans.

Then discover the strange and curious history behind the terms “saved by the bell” and “graveyard shift” as you learn about old burial customs and visit old tombs. At the end of your tour, take home a souvenir charm bag.
