Marie Laveau is arguably one of the most famous people that lived in New Orleans. This tour is all about her life and what made her so fascinating. While walking with your tour guide through the French Quarter you will get to see where her childhood home was, visit the birthplace of Jazz, and get an understanding of the Code Noir. There will be an opportunity to go into an authentic voodoo store, see a voodoo temple, and dispel popular myths about the religion of Voodoo. Many people don't understand that Voodoo is still practiced today and Marie Laveau started it all. If you want to learn the truth about Voodoo this is the tour for you.

    even tho we could not go into the cemetery due to covid our tour guide, Matt, was fabulous. he had such a wealth of information. when the company we bought these tickets from gave us the wrong meeting spot, Matt was kind enough to help us find him and waited for us as we had to take another cab ride. I was extremely irate about having to pay for another cab fare but Matts positive attitude made this experience a joy

    10/10 recommend this tour! Even with the cemeteries being closed due to COVID, our guide was able to take us to the gates and tell us all about the history of the Voodoo culture in New Orleans. We got to see Congo Square, Marie Laveau's home, St. Louis cemetery and more and got to learn everything we wouldn't have learned just by going to a gift shop or reading up on New Orleans. Great experience!

    This is a great way to see a part of the towns history through the help of a local or a guide. I went with 3 friends and we all loved it. Our guide Mat was great in the way he told the stories and little fun facts that he had for us. he was very interactive and his pase was great. When in New Orleans I would presonaly advice you to do one of these tours.
