Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour begins at the main entrance of Armstrong Park, located at 801 N. Rampart Street. Here, you’ll greet your guide and stroll through the park towards Congo Square, shrouded in legends surrounding burial practices and voodoo culture. 
    Learn about the integral roll of jazz music in burial customs and then walk on the site of St. Peter’s Cemetery, one of the city’s original graveyards. After discovering why the cemetery closed, proceed to the crowning feature of your tour: St. Louis Cemetery.
    Replete with elaborate mausoleums that tower above the ground, the Gothic wonderland is a feast for the eyes. Visit the grave of Marie Laveau, a legendary voodoo practitioner, and wander past tombs of significant figures throughout history.
    See, too, the burial sport reserved by Hollywood actor, Nicolas Cage, and locations used to film the blockbuster, Easy Rider. Conclude your tour outside of the basin Street Visitor Center, where you’ll bid your guide farewell.

    Thank you Carlo. My wife and I had a great time. We knew that this would be a small group but we didn't think it would be just the three of us. While being the only people on a tour can sometimes be awkward Carlo...More

    Thank you for reviewing us! The cemetery certainly does get hot in the summer. You showed wisdom in taking the 9 am when there was still a little shade left to hide in.

    One of the reasons that our tours are capped at 15 guests is so that the group can move nimbly through the cemetery. Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review!
