Monique is a seasoned cemetery professional who has done loads of research on the various cemeteries of New Orleans, especially St. Louis Cemetery #1- the cemetery, as she says "people are dying to get into." Ok, corny jokes aside (She'll keep those to a minimum!) Monique loves to share the experiences of New Orleans' history of stories that emanate from our beloved cemetery and the people who are entombed there. She's not a classroom academic, she knows how to make a tour of the cemetery fascinating for any visitor. Monique is a licensed guide for the cemetery, which is required to enter.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We won't just walk around the cemetery (which is beautiful it its own right)... you'll be accompanied by a licensed guide who has studied the cemetery and will impart the fascinating stories she's culled from years of research.

At St. Louis Cemetery #1 you will see the tombs of New Orleans notables Marie Laveau, Homer Plessy, and even the empty tomb of Nick Cage. No one should leave New Orleans without visiting one of our “cities of the dead.”

Charlie, if you book this, you want Charlie! Not sure about the other guides but he is a class act! It was the shortest 2 hours and left wanting more. He knows so much about the cemetery and the city's history because he lives here and I left feeling so enlightened. 10/10 would recommend.

This tour is amazing and it's especially great since the groups are small. You are able to hear the stories and gather around while getting insight into NOLA history and culture.

Charlie was an amazing tour guide. He has done extensive research and was able to give so much insight into our tour. It’s easy to tell he is passionate about what he does. I loved that the groups are kept small!

My fiancé and I actually met with Charlie. He was amazing, very knowledgable about historical facts about New Orleans past. He was funny and very friendly. Our group was small and I preferred it that way...the other groups that were there were massive and it looked very impersonal. I recommend this tour group over other ones!!
