I began Historic New Orleans Tours in 1995 out of my passion for this city's enchanting history. I've written books and founded a cemetery preservation group. I regularly show travel writers the city and have been featured on the History Channel and many other international travel programs. I and the city's best guides, including scholars, educators, actors and musicians, look forward to sharing the city we love with you!

Staðsetning

Stroll through the past and present of this fascinating city viewed through St. Louis Cemetery #1 (established 1789). This burial ground reveals New Orleans history more vividly than any other historic site. Aboveground burial and picturesque decay combine with awesome architectural features for an unforgettable experience. Stops include Congo Square, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and the site of Storyville, the city's former red light district.

Rob was knowledgeable and an excellent storyteller. We had the perfect size group - not too large. Learned so much about the culture and practices of New Orleans. Interesting facts about the grave and funeral practices of NOLA. He also covered Voodoo history as well as current practices. Thank you Rob!!

This tour was good and Ms. Gwen was very knowledgable. She is a bit soft spoken, so it was very hard to hear everything she said. My boyfriend is hearing impaired and he missed out on MOST of the tour due to that, so that was a bit disappointing. The graveyards are INCREDIBLY crowded, so be aware that you most likely won't see everything. Otherwise the tour was very informative and enjoyable.
