Martha was an awesome tour guide! She kept it entertaining and fun and was so knowledgeable about the city as well as the cemeteries. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history of New Orleans and the cemeteries themselves.
My wife and I greatly enjoyed our tour of cemeteries one and two. Our guide, Arthur, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. As we explored other locations throughout the city, tidbits learned at the cemeteries provided insights into New Orleans colorful history. We mostly appreciated that Save Our Cemeteries is working to preserve these important monuments and testimonials to the people who made New Orleans the fascinating city it is.
Annette was a fantastic tour guide...she provided lots of interesting stories as well as facts about the history of NOLA. This was one of our favorite parts of our visit to New Orleans!
Monique shared some great stories about New Orleanians of the past. Combined with our tour of Lafayette #1, this was a very enjoyable way to learn a bit about the history and culture of this unique city.
