What You'll Get
"The first thing you notice about New Orleans are the burying grounds - the cemeteries - and they're a cold proposition, one of the best things there are here. Going by, you try to be as quiet as possible, better to let them sleep. Greek, Roman, sepulchres- palatial mausoleums made to order, phantomesque, signs and symbols of hidden decay - ghosts of women and men who have sinned and who've died and are now living in tombs. The past doesn't pass away so quickly here. You could be dead for a long time."-Bob Dylan
The tour originates in an authentic Creole Cottage and visits architecturally-significant and culturally-relevant landmarks as the former Bank of Louisiana, the home of Paul Morphy, America's first Grand Master Chess Champion, and the Irish Cultural Center before leaving the Vieux Carre to explore the Mortuary Chapel, and beyond to the oldest cemetery in New Orleans.
Unveil the secrets of our burial practices and the various types of tombs that make our cemeteries unique in America within the sacred walls of the St. Louis Cemetery. Learn the truth about Marie Laveau, Voodoo, and the mysteries of Congo Square before leaving the beautiful Armstrong Park, home to New Orleans Opera and countless musical festivals.
Return through the picturesque French Quarter past Gallier-designed townhouses to the charming Hermes Bar at Antoine's Restaurant, the perfect spot for a casual lunch and a refreshing drink.
