About
New Orleans can be an intimidating place to tackle on your own, especially when you’re interested in the city’s deep voodoo roots. This tour makes it easy by guaranteeing a spot on a guided tour that not only dives deep into the Big Easy’s voodoo culture. The BYOB Cemetery Insiders option allows you to journey through three of New Orleans’ historical cemeteries and includes transportation from the French Quarter, and the option to bring your favorite beverage on board.

Highlights
Explore one of New Orleans' busiest areas without worrying about getting lost 
Safely go to a voodoo ritual shop with a guide who’s familiar with the religion
Easy-to-find meeting points in the French Quarter
Journey through three historical New Orleans cemeteries, if option chosen
What to expect
Your tour meets in New Orleans' French Quarter, where your guide first shows you some of the well-known architecture of the area, such as the Creole townhouses and shotgun homes. As you go, your guide shares stories about the city’s rich voodoo history and famous practitioners of the religion such as Marie Laveau. See more crypts and mausoleums from outside cemetery gates, and move to a discussion about Voodoo in America. To see cemeteries from inside the gates with your favorite beverage in hand, choose the BYOB Cemetery Insiders option. You'll experience three of New Orleans’ historical cemeteries and learn of the city's unique burial traditions. With either option, your tour ends at a central spot in the French Quarter. Your guide can provide directions back to the starting point or your hotel or recommendations for what to do next.

William is exceptional
We had such a great tour lead by William. He encouraged questions and made the history come to life as he showed us all the sites of the French quarter. Even my 17yo son enjoyed it. He gave us a real feel for the culture of the city. Way more interesting than just straight history facts. Really loved this.
