Don't advertise St Louis Cemetery #1 tour if you can't actually go in!!! Also no restroom facilities anywhere nearby for a nearly 3 hour walking tour!!! Price exceeds actual price value of tour!

I enjoyed that our tour guide made pop culture references, making the tour very fun. He was amazing! However, there was a bunch of cultural appropriation going on in the voodoo store we were taken to.

Pros: Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Interesting stops along the way to the cemetery. Cons: Felt a little rushed. Too many tours in the cemetery at the same time to be able to see everything. It's a one way tour.....should have been a circle.

Utterly fascinating! I learned much about the quirky and unique history and culture of New Orleans. Our tour guide was entertaining and well informed. We toured the cemetery in the pouring rain, which made an already macabre experience even more suggestive. Highly recommended!

They cancelled the transportation pickup and did not tell the office where we booked the trip until AFTER the pickup time. Only after the scheduled time, they told us of the change and told us they just moved us to a different boat at a different time. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!
