“Entertaining as well as informative.”
Reviewed by James from Marina del Rey, United States on November 15th, 2013 Tour was excellent. Our guide (sorry forgot his name) is very knowledgeable.
Reviewed by Michael from long grove, United States on October 31st, 2013 Very interesting tour. I saw the burial sites of many famous people and learned about how people are buried in New Orleans, very unique. I also saw Nicolas cages tomb for someday when he passes. Awesome tour and our tour guide was studying to be a history major, so he knew a lot of very interesting facts, plus a really nice guy. The only negative was the size if the tour group. We had 25 people in our group which was a lot., but I understand each tour needs to be profitable. But definitely worth taking. I wish a small group or private tour had been offered.
“very entertaining and informative!”
