There are three St. Louis Cemeteries in New Orleans and the St. Louis Cemetery No. 2 is famous for notable citizens of 19th and 20th century New Orleans being laid to rest here. The cemetery's graves are above-ground tombs, referred to as "Cities of the Dead" because they resembled small houses and make the cemetery look like a city in itself.

even tho we could not go into the cemetery due to covid our tour guide, Matt, was fabulous. he had such a wealth of information. when the company we bought these tickets from gave us the wrong meeting spot, Matt was kind enough to help us find him and waited for us as we had to take another cab ride. I was extremely irate about having to pay for another cab fare but Matts positive attitude made this experience a joy

10/10 recommend this tour! Even with the cemeteries being closed due to COVID, our guide was able to take us to the gates and tell us all about the history of the Voodoo culture in New Orleans. We got to see Congo Square, Marie Laveau's home, St. Louis cemetery and more and got to learn everything we wouldn't have learned just by going to a gift shop or reading up on New Orleans. Great experience!

This is a great way to see a part of the towns history through the help of a local or a guide. I went with 3 friends and we all loved it. Our guide Mat was great in the way he told the stories and little fun facts that he had for us. he was very interactive and his pase was great. When in New Orleans I would presonaly advice you to do one of these tours.
