  • When I was looking for a cemetery tour, I happened on Miss Denise's tour. She had great reviews and I love stories. What sold me also was she mentioned Marie Laveau. I learned so much from my tour. It was very interesting to learn about the history of St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. New Orleans has such a rich and varied history, so unique from anywhere else I have been. Miss Denise's introduction was detailed and fascinating. I highly recommend!
  • Very nice and informative! Denise was outstanding! She couldnt have done a better job. Will forsure come back to tour more with her!
  • My wife and I visited St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 and we’re so lucky to have our tour led by Denise. She is feisty, knowledgeable, passionate, and just plain amazing! I know our tour was the best in New Orleans because of her. Ask for her, accept no less!
  • Took the Afro-Creole tour and it was absolutely fantastic. I used to live in New Orleans and had taken history focused tours before and I still learned so much. Definitely recommend taking this as Denise is an amazing tour guide and is so fun to be around.
  • Miss Denise Augustine is a joy! The tour is beautiful, so fascinating, and we learned so much. Such a highlight of our trip. Miss Denise is so thoughtful, knowledgeable, and charismatic. Her genuine care is not to be missed!
