Our Original New Orleans Cemetery Tour is Like No Other

We offer a scenic stroll down famous Canal Street to visit some of the most unique cemeteries in the world. You will see the famous above-ground tombs, called the CITIES OF THE DEAD. Not everyone in New Orleans were buried in these beautifully ornate tombs, however. You will also visit what are called the COPING TOMBS which became popular in the late 19th century. Step back in time and hear the folklore, customs, and superstitions which are mingled into our unusual burial procedures.

You will go inside one of New Orleans’ oldest and most diverse cemeteries where you will see everything from the above-ground monument tombs to early wall vaults. Take a stroll through the original “potter’s field,” The Charity Hospital Cemetery. We also visit the Katrina Memorial where you will hear the tragic story of those who remain entombed there. Find out why we offer the # 1 New Orleans Cemetery Tour in the city. This tour is offered daily by reservation at 10:15 AM & 1:15 PM.

A short streetcar ride down scenic Canal Street gets you there from downtown and French Quarter (please allow ample time as this mode of transportation is slow). Free on-street parking is also available nearby.

*Tours operate rain or shine. There are no tours Mardi Gras Day.
