    I am sure Colin would be more than accommodating for any age range just let him know ahead of time so he can set up an appropriate itinerary.

    I don’t think so for the full tour because I believe the cemeteries close earlier but if you contact the tour guide Colin Tyler he can work with you pretty good He is the best tour guide in New Orleans
