Often referred to as the “cities of the dead”, New Orleans cemetery tours are the best way to navigate through the above-ground tombs.
Without a guided tour, you’ll miss out on the history, innovation, and preservation. Additionally, certain cemeteries require visitors to have a licensed guide to enter.
New Orleans’ Saint Louis Cemetery #1 is the most popular cemetery to visit. It’s home to the tombs of Marie Laveau, Nicolas Cage, and film location for the 70’s movie Easy Rider. It’s also one of the cemeteries that require you to be on a guided tour.
