We visited one celery and Katrina memorial. Nothing about this tour was haunted. Most of the time just wasted waiting on drunk people get back to the bus. The guide was great but still not worth it!

This trip was mostly for my daughter who is really into ghosts and was excited to try and detect ghosts. Tour was also a tour of New Orleans as we drove, the tour guide giving fun commentary. We learned about burial procedures and saw two separate graveyards. The first graveyard we got to walk around and see the cool sepulchres, but second graveyard was where unknown Katrina victims were which was neat but there wasn’t a typical looking graveyard, more like an open field with trees. The second one we were given some kind of divining rods to communicate with yes and no questions. I was surprised that these seemed to work once we found a semi private place in the graveyard. Most disappointing part was the volume of people in graveyard with us, many drunk and loud, that made it a little more difficult to be in the moment. Also we took a bathroom break in between graveyards I guess to accommodate the drunks, when I would have preferred more time in graveyards. But I guess this is new Orleans and that must be expected. Just would have liked a little more graveyard time.

We did the 8 pm bus tour , with my family which included my 11 & 13 year olds. We like mysteries and a little scary stuff. they should have said it was for adults only, the tour guide and especially the people on the bus were cussing and smelled like weed. I get it , it’s NOLA but I would not recommend for family or any type of fun especially not for this cost. Guest were loud and didn’t let the tour guide talk , so he just stop really giving his speech . We did 2 cemeteries and a snack bar. I was annoyed and hot by the end of the tour.

About This Deal

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hurricane Katrina Memorial, 5056 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70119-5835

On the former site of Charity Hospital’s paupers’ field, this ominous but oddly affecting circle of tombs holds the bodies of 85 unclaimed victims of the 2005 levee failures and the names of others who perished. It’s an unfussy place that’s easily missed, the better for contemplative solitude, perhaps. Surrounded by a storm-shaped series of pathways, the memorial does its duty in giving one substantial pause.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: City Park, City Park, New Orleans, Louisiana

City Park is as magical and unique as the city of New Orleans. The 1,300-acre outdoor oasis has enchanted New Orleanians since 1854, making it one of the nation’s oldest urban parks. Each year, millions of visitors stroll under the same historic oaks and picturesque moss canopies that served as the backdrop for dances, concerts and even gentlemanly duels or “affaires d’honneur” for generations.

Stop At: Masonic Temple Cemetery, 400 City Park Ave, New Orleans, LA 70119, USA

Founded in 1865 by the Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana Free and Accepted Masons, the Masonic Cemetery expresses a character distinct from the Catholic cemeteries that dominate the city. It is known for its many unusual, elaborate tombs, a reputation due in part to the cemetery’s communal nature: members of lodges pooled resources to purchase large group tombs. Occupying two oddly shaped city blocks, the cemetery is triangular in plan, with Conti Street bisecting it. The triangular footprint of the bordering streets overlaid with the cemetery’s angular internal walkways mimics the Masonic emblem of the square and compass. Cast-iron picket fences enclose its two distinct sections, while oak allées line its northern and western edges. Tombs are compactly arranged in rows parallel to Bienville Street, with a wide, paved promenade cutting through the center to provide access to smaller walkways between rows.

Duration: 30 minutes
