French Quarter Walking Tour
FRENCH QUARTER HISTORY
During this tour you make your way through the historic French Quarter to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, the final resting place of history’s most revered Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau.
WALK INTO A NEW ORLEANS CEMETERY
There are three St. Louis Cemeteries in New Orleans, but the oldest extant cemetery in the city is St. Louis Cemetery Number 1 and is still the site of several burials a year. Therefore, we enter this cemetery. In addition you will notice that the cemetery’s graves are above ground tombs. It is also referred to as “Cities of the Dead” because they resembled small houses. The Catholic Archdioesces of New Orleans requires all visitors to be accompanied by a licensed tour guide ensuring the historic preservation of this local landmark. Consequently, you must book a tour with us in order to get the best experience.
