Overview
Unlock the secrets of New Orleans’ oldest and most famous graveyard in a short amount of time with this tour of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. A guided tour is a must as it’s the only way to enter due to archdiocese rules. Walk among elaborate family vaults and the tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau, and learn about the city’s above-ground burial practices from a guide.
Highlights
  • Express tour of the famous St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in New Orleans
  • Enter the city's oldest graveyard with a licensed guide, the only way in
  • See the legendary tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau
  • 1-hour tour a great option for visitors with limited time
What to Expect
Connect with your guide in the French Quarter and take a short walk to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, the oldest and most legendary of New Orleans’ “Cities of the Dead.” Learn about the history of burial in New Orleans, including the city’s distinctive above-ground methods that are necessary when below sea level. Enter the cemetery gates with your guide for a 1-mile walk through cobblestone avenues and elaborate burial vaults you may recognize from films like Easy Rider. Because of archdiocese regulations, visitors cannot enter most New Orleans cemeteries alone, so a guided tour is the only way to go. See the tombs of prominent Louisiana families, and hear the legends that swirl around the the alleged final resting place of voodoo queen Marie Laveau. The tour ends at Basin Street Station.

Charlotte did an excellent job of not only giving us great history but of answering any questions we may have had. She was very knowledgeable but was able to captivate her audience all at the same time. I would highly recommend this tour.

$20 each to get in and you must be with a tour guide - maybe worth $10 to get in and see it but worth it if you only ever plan going to New Orleans once in your lifetime (would never return to NOLA for any reason)

We had a wonderful tour lead by Miko. He was very knowledgable on the city’s history and current events. He was very patient answering questions, he took his time telling stories and never made us feel rushed on the tour. We will recommend him to everyone we know taking a trip
