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.

    Scott was a terrific guide! He gave a fun presentation, but he treated the voodoo religion and traditions with respect. He provided LOTS of historical information about NOLA, Marie Laveau, Congo Square, and life in the early days of the city. His respectful treatment of the religious aspects and also the situation of enslaved people was appreciated. He went out of his way to dispel the myths surrounding voodoo, and I went away with a new understanding of the practices. I highly recommend this tour and guide!

    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!
