The trip was awesome. Getting to see the cemetery at night was amazing. Our tour guide Fernando was entertaining and knowledgeable. This was a fun way to see the cities of the dead.

I thought I wanted to do a walking g tour, but the 100 degree weather told me otherwise. Henry was a wonderful guide! The tour was fun and super informative! 10/10 recommend!

Was really great. Fun to see at night. I didn’t even known there was a Katrina memorial. Fun trying to contact the spirits. Great stop between cemeteries. The best beignets.

It was so much fun. I would definitely recommend going with your friends on this tour to check out a bit of New Orleans.

The cemeteries that we visited were beautiful and not creepy at all. There is great history in those tombs
