Awesome tour- very informative and entertaining. Loved we got to make a stop at the cemetery. Also, it’s nice that they touch on Katrina hurricane and what preventative measures they have in place. There is something about a group tour- you feel like you belong to something for 2 hours. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all the people and things to see. I highly recommend this tour.

Great and informative tour of the New Orleans cemeteries and burial process~ Henry added the right amount of SPOOK and FUN into his discussions~ A lot of laughs and likes~

Jim our guide was very good and explained things in a simple way with some amusing comments. Saw lots of New Orleans we wouldn’t have ventured to

Was a great trip, bring cash as they’ll most likely stop at Morning Call for beignets and coffee. Also, a flash light helps.

Our guide Trisha was AMAZING! Learned so much and had so much fun doing so. I highly recommend.
