We were late...
July 07, 2019
We drove to New Orleans and headed directly to the meeting point and circled the area for 30 minutes and could not find parking and gave up. Then, the tour people called to see if we were coming or needed to reschedule. We were given the cell phone number of the tour guide and he allowed us to meet him at the entrance of St. Louis cemetery number one. Although we missed The entire walking tour, we were able to see the cemetery. I would definitely do this excursion again.

History Based walking tour

This is a history and architecture based walking tour. Don't let the name fool you. The only voodoo oriented thing on the tour is that we visited the Marie La Veau's grave. despite this I recommend this walking tour. my mom and I really enjoyed it.
