During our City Tour we stopped at St Louis Cemetery #3. It was newer and easier to see things. St Louis #1 is very crowded and in really bad shape. If you go, do it during the early morning because it gets really hot there.

A 1 hour guided tour of the cemetery. Saw Marie laveaus vault , the vault Nicholas Cage had built. Amazing architecture ,The guide was informative. We lucked out and it was a cool day. If very hot could be challenging.

We did this walking tour and the group was about 12 of us, which was a great size. Big enough to have questions but not too many that we couldn't take pictures or find a place to stand without being able to hear the guide,...More

You need a tour guide to get in, which is easily done, but word of advice: bring some shade, the light reflecting off the tombs is HOT.

At the time we went (Oct 2017), you could go into the cemetery without a guide after paying an admission fee. The more recent answers indicate that policy has changed. Too bad, but when unsupervised people take advantage of... More
