Fun visit if you're interested in the cities more ghostly side. Requires a tour guide but the tour itself took only about 45 minutes and it turned out to be quite useful having a guide.

If you like cemeteries, you'll enjoy walking around the St. Louis Cemetery. It's an easy stroll and you can see some really old tombs.

Amazing how many families are buried within one tomb. The history of some tombs and the legal battles ensued to be buried with past ancestors is incredible. Take a tour and get the local history. The carvings and stonework is incredible.

walking on the tour of this cemetery is totally amazing, to see the new tomb that was made there for the actor Nicholas Cage when he passes on and all the other tombs of other famous people.

Have a guide take you through so that you get a sense of the history of the oldest above-ground cemetery.

We were not sure if we wanted to spend the money but we were glad we did. Our guides name was Denise Augustine and she was fabulous. The tour might not have been as good without her. She was full of interesting facts and stories...More

Take it with the French Tour Phantoms tour group. Tour guides are educated and extremely entertaining. The cemetery is beautiful and rich with history. Definitely worth it.

We made the mistake of booking a tour at 11am. It was incredibly hot with absolutely no shade. The tour was interesting but In 100 degree weather quite unbearable for 2 1/2 hours. You need to go book for an early morning or late evening...More

Trip advisor had a great selection of tours which we chose the free walking tours which had them every day. You paid what you felt the tour was worth and paid $2 per person for entrance into the cemetery.

It varies. There are different tour companies that offer tours. The cemetery itself does not hold them. I did a search for cemetery tours in NOLA and found mine. I also found a Groupon for it, so check there before making... More
