Tours are an ideal way for anyone to learn more about a city without resorting to drastic measures such as running for mayor. Get acquainted with New Orleans the easy way with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two adult tickets to a historical tour from Strange True Tours (a $40 value). Choose between the City of the Dead Cemetery Tour or Women of New Orleans History Tour.

Owner Jeffrey Holmes and his staff of brainy guides pride themselves on the historical accuracy of Strange True Tours, leading inquisitive sightseers and lore-hungry locals on educational promenades throughout the Big Easy. Imbibe knowledge of New Orleans' most infamous dames and their impact on the city’s cultural identity during the Women of New Orleans Tour, which explores the legacies of women who were able to own property and run businesses on their terms. Ambulators take in the enthralling accounts of a baroness, voodoo priestess, world-famous madam who later received a key to the city, and the accused murderess Madame Lalaurie, among others. Tours begin their damsel-rooted sashay Monday–Saturday at 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. Sunday.

Monday–Saturday at 11:30 a.m., the City of the Dead Tour winds around the labyrinthine aboveground crypts and zombie jazz bands of the oldest continuously running graveyard in New Orleans. Tour-takers comb through the age-old Saint Louis No. 1 Cemetery, strolling past the tomb of voodoo queen Marie Laveau and the future final resting place of aspiring pharaoh Nicolas Cage.

History of buildings and people were very interesting. Would have been more fun if we had been able to go into the buildings and maybe would have experienced something. All in all, it was a great tour, very enjoyable.
