Overview
New Orleans can be an intimidating place to tackle on your own, especially when you’re interested in the city’s deep voodoo roots. This tour makes it easy by guaranteeing a spot on a guided tour that not only dives deep into the Big Easy’s voodoo culture, but also quickly takes you to famous graves at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1.
What to Expect
Your tour meets at the corner of Royal and Conti Streets in New Orleans' French Quarter, where your guide first shows you some of the well-known architecture of the area, such as the Creole townhouses and shotgun homes.

As you go, your guide shares stories about the city’s rich voodoo history and famous practitioners of the religion such as Marie Laveau. Your guide takes you to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, one of the city’s oldest cemeteries, which opened in 1789. At the cemetery, see the famous tomb of Laveau, as well as other former voodoo masters. It's often difficult to view the city's cemeteries without a guide, and this tour ensures you'll not only be able to enter quickly, but also find the most interesting tombs.

Before your tour ends, see more crypts and mausoleums in the cemetery, pop into a voodoo ritual shop, and stop by Congo Square.

Your tour ends in the French Quarter near Jackson Square, and your guide can provide directions back to the starting point or your hotel or recommendations for what to do next.

Great tour with Trevor, lots of history!

This tour was exactly what I was looking for on my first time trip to New Orleans, a lot of local history from someone who has called the French Quarter Home for most of his life. Thanks Trevor!!

Bond’s Tour (Music, Architecture and STL #1)

This was actually our third tour in STL #1. Bond did an excellent job of being a little more thorough in her historical analysis of the cemetery. We appreciated the portions of the French Quarter, but we especially took away her more complete take on...More
