Cemetery and Voodoo Walking Tour by NOLA Ghost Riders

ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Save $12 on Cemetery and Voodoo Walking Tour!

Take a trip back in time and visit New Orleans' oldest above ground cemetery. St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 was founded in 1789. Due to unique environmental circumstances and century-old Catholic tradition, standard below ground burials could no longer take place, and the first St. Louis Cemetery was born. An 8 block area in what used to be the uninhabitable outskirts of town, is now home to the tombs of plantation owners, architects, pirates, a chess champion, a voodoo queen, and Nicolas Cage.

We were lucky that our group was only four people so we felt very catered to, and Trish was a wealth of information and explained to us the history of New Orleans and much much more. I was skeptical at first picking this your, but I was very pleased with it.
