  • I've never heard of paying to get into a cemetery, let alone 20 dollars a person. Even the iconic Hollywood Forever cemetery is free. I sure hope all the folks who died get a cut of this pure exploitation.
  • This IS the right cemetery for Marie Laveau's tomb (NOT other cemeteries when you try to do a search and they tell you it's in Saint Louis #2 or elsewhere) but DO NOT waste your precious time in this city here. If you truly believe in the superstition that performing a ritual at her grave (which you are not allowed to DO anyway) will help your troubles, go ahead and be robbed for the MANDATORY tour guide fee to even enter this public ground. Oh yes, it's also a super shady part of town where I had 911 already input on my phone because we were being followed on the streets by some guys in a truck...a few times. Your time is MUCH better spent in Lafayette Cemetery #1 in the beautiful Garden District, with no entry fee and there's a guy outside selling ice cold water for $1, and an awesome coffee house at the opposite corner that sells iced drinks and has fabulous air conditioning to take a break. And, if you want a tour, there are plenty of docents who are friendly and not pushy, waiting for you if you want. This is an amazing city, but seriously don't waste your time at this location that may end up getting you hurt, or robbed in more ways than one. I post almost all positive reviews on here, but this was worth posting about the major disappointment. LOVE everything else about this city.
  • Great Cemetery. Old and spooky, even when you go there during the day. We had a tour guide, but it is better if you do a self guided tour, so you can move around as you wish. Be sure you check out Marie LaveauĀ“s grave. And just walk around, it is really impressing. Unlike other cemeteries, this one is really old and if you listen carefully, you can maybe hear or feel the dead.
  • You can only visit as part of a tour, but your guide will make your visit very informative and worthwhile. An amazing place, but be aware that on a hot day it can be 10-20 degrees hotter inside the cemetery than it is on the street. Take water, no booze allowed.
  • We were "greeted" at the entrance of the cemetery by the rudest man in all of New Orleans. No "good afternoon", no "May I help you", no "how are you", just a yell "stop right there, you heard the man outside, you need a guided tour to enter". I asked him why he was treating us like that and he just kept quiet and staring us down. Needless to say, our visit to the cemetery ended right there. This is no way to treat visitors from other countries.
