Charlie, our guide, was FANTASTIC! Not only was it just about the cemetery, he explained the neighborhoods, culture, and ways of the city. And this was despite the cemetery being closed due to covid, yet he still made it well worth the $. Good dude, great tour! Well done!

Imagine you booked a tour of the Vatican and when you showed up the guide told you the Vatican was locked and the tour would be from outside the walled city but not to fear . pictures could be taken through holes in the wall.

My "poor" rating has nothing to do with Carlo the tour guide, he did a great job and was very informative and personable. My reason for the poor review is that the cemetery is closed and we were not made aware of this prior to the tour. How do you charge for a tour of a cemetery

Charles was knowledgeable and fun. My mother and I enjoyed our tour despite the fact that it wasn’t as planned. I wish we had more notice that the cemetery was still closed do to Covid than upon our departure but it was still worth the history lesson and French Quarter insight
