Description

Book now to gain exclusive entry to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. Admission is is prohibited without a licensed tour guide. We offer small tours into St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 to ensure the guest experience is as intimate as possible.

The adventure begins with roundtrip airconditioned coach transportation to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1—the oldest Roman Catholic cemetery in New Orleans and the final resting place of some of the Crescent City's most famous (and infamous) residents. Learn the true stories behind historical figures like high priestess Marie Laveau, the renowned Voodoo queen of New Orleans.

Travel back in time to the late 1700s and delve into the intriguing lore that shaped New Orleans' mystical identity. Licensed tour guides help you explore cemetery haunts like the tomb of Voodoo queen Marie Laveau and teach you about unique Creole burial customs.

As you walk among the tombs, discover the significance behind the Creole tradition of above-ground burials, and find out the strange and curious origins of terms like “saved by the bell” and “graveyard shift.” At the end of your tour, your guide leaves you with a gris-gris, a souvenir bag inspired by the traditional amulets and charms of New Orleans' Voodoo practitioners.

Horrible tour. We didnt this get to see half of the cemetery as our tour guide just kept us in the same area talking at us. I wanted to see the architecture and that didn’t happen. Horrible waste of time and money.

Our Tour guide was amazing. She was so insightful and full of interesting facts. It was nice to have a tour guide that had such a connection to the culture in NOLA. Her ability to share personal facts and resources gave such a great bonus to the tour.
