Great tour

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.
