This was an absolutely amazing tour! Our guide was just fantastic. She was extremely informative and oh so very entertaining! She was also very considerate being that the heat and humidity that day was oppressive. She did try at every chance to have us stand in a shaded area and stressed the importance of being hydrated during our walk. I couldn't have asked for a better guide!

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.
