I recommend taking this tour at night to get the full experience. I can’t remember our guides name but I think it was Peter. What I can say is this tour is all about the guide you have. He was really into story telling and involved the guests to share their stories which added to the creepiness around the cemetery at night. It was a nice pace with story telling the entire time of ghost experience.

Great guide with lots of history, stories, and architecture. Really liked her (Yvonne) and the other must have bc the other people on the tour had booked her for this tour after having her the day before on a different tour.

This tour is a must if you want to get out of the French Quarter to see everything New Orleans has to offer. Excellent tour guide.

Zelda was a great tour guide around this fascinating cemetery. Perpetual care is a must!

So glad to be able to tour this cemetery after covid
