Overview
Visit the oldest and most legendary graveyard in New Orleans on a guided tour of St. Louis Cemetery No 1. The only way to enter the cemetery is with a guide who shares history and shows you the most intriguing above-ground tombs. Bonus: This tour includes a group ritual and blessing at the final resting place of Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau.
What to Expect
After connecting with your guide and group near St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 in central New Orleans, enter the gates of the city's oldest graveyard, known for its ornate yet crumbling tombs and reports of paranormal activity.

Archdiocese rules now forbid visitors to enter alone, so a licensed guided tour is the only way to explore this legendary site. Learn about the long history of the cemetery, which holds the remains of more than 100,000 people, and New Orleans’ unique above-ground burial practices from your guide.

Take pictures as your guide leads you to some of the most interesting and important family tombs, including the alleged final resting place of famed voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau. Perform a special group ritual and blessing here at America’s second-most visited grave (after that of Elvis).

The tour ends at the cemetery gates.

Bri is amazing

the tour was great! besides the cemetery visit, Bri also showed other important parts around there, always with very nice and detailed histories. I learned so much with this tour and she was a very fun guide!
