Cemetery, History, & WTF is Voodoo Tour!

Brian Webber

Select Option

Highlights

Expect a few laughs, a few 'aha moments', and a little morbidity. Think 'Drunk History' style cemetery tour. A small group of up to 14 guests. We’ll get to know each other for a few minutes and then we will walk a few blocks with plenty of pausing along the way as I humorously share our history from the 1680s up to the Jazz Age. By the time you enter the cemetery gates you will fully understand how it came to be. Once in the cemetery, I will relay how our entombment practices work and all the real estate options in the 'city of the dead': family tombs, wall vaults, and benevolent societies. We'll see the tombs of such notables as Nicolas Cage (future), Battle of New Orleans veterans, Homer Plessy, and the Voodoo queen herself – Marie Laveau! By the time we’re done, all the seemingly unrelated tales and facts are somehow weaved into a tapestry that is uniquely New Orleans. Ironically, the cemetery tour is one of the most fun and funniest tours while still being informative.
