Overview
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, but also quickly takes you to famous graves, like Marie Laveau's, at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1.

Please note: The local supplier is also offering a $10,000 giveaway contest, taking place Halloween 2019!  No purchase necessary.
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
  • Quickly find Marie Laveau’s grave from thousands of headstones 
  • Easy-to-find meeting and drop-off points in the French Quarter
What to Expect
Your tour meets at the corner of Royal and Conti Streets 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. Your guide takes you to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, one of the city’s oldest cemeteries, which opened in 1789. At the cemetery, see the famous tomb of Laveau, as well as other former voodoo masters. It's often difficult to view the city's cemeteries without a guide, and this tour ensures you'll not only be able to enter quickly, but also find the most interesting tombs. Before your tour ends, see more crypts and mausoleums in the cemetery and move to a discussion about Voodoo in America. Your tour ends in Congo Square in Louis Armstrong Park in mid to late afternoon, and your guide can provide directions back to the starting point or your hotel or recommendations for what to do next.

My wife and I were in New Orleans early morning after debarking from our cruise. After a breakfast at Cafe Du Monde I booked the 11am tour with James. He led us on a fantastic adventure through the city, explaining the history and architecture as we walked the beautiful streets.
