Our guide was very articulate and informative. The place is full of history and I certainly learned quite a bit. Definitely bring water, sunscreen, a hat and/or an umbrella if you go during Summer months. Very worth it.

Save Our Cemeteries is a non-profit doing preservation work, so +1 star for a good cause. The tour was informative and factual, good for history buffs. Delivery was very much like a documentary, children or teenagers are likely to tune out after a few tombs....More

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

St. Louis #1 is a popular one. You need to be part of a licensed tour to get in. But DO NOT MISS Metairie Cemetery. It is absolutely beautiful and full of history.
