Cemetery Tour & Cities of the dead

Another amazing attraction we’re taking you on is our adventurous and enticing cemetery tour. If you’re into history and the antique, or if you’re looking to experience and see something unusual and different, the above-ground tombs and mausoleums of New Orleans will prove themselves to be an unbelievable experience!

The tombs of New Orleans are mostly above ground. With water levels being so low, if you dig down even a little bit, you’re likely to strike some water. Therefore, it wouldn’t be wise to bury loved ones in this environment. This made people bury their loved ones above ground, making for some breath-taking sights and monuments.

Cities of the dead existed for centuries, and you’re likely to find all sorts of people buried here from all walks of life. Pirates, voodoo shamans, politicians, and regular folk are buried side by side, in gorgeous and culturally rich mausoleums.

The cemeteries are a great tour option and will make for some unforgettable memories and photographs. But remember to be respectful, these are graveyards after all!

Faubourgs Treme

Faubourgs Treme is another neighborhood you’ll see on our city and cemetery tour, and it’s one you can’t allow yourself to miss out on! This is an extremely culturally rich neighborhood, with its fame stemming from the tight-knit connection with jazz music.

If you’re interested in jazz, this will be an amazing destination for you! Even if you’re not into jazz and you’re looking for a little interesting history, you’ll be taken back by the richness of this neighborhood.

Faubourgs Treme boasts an extremely important pillar in African American history and is representative of the battle for the rights that numerous minorities have had to fight for. It offers the world-famous Congo square, which is a place where slaves used to come together to create music.

This whole neighborhood is extremely rich with gorgeous architecture and is famous for its blend of old and new. The neighborhood combines the history of hardship and rough times with gorgeous modern architecture.

History and culture aren’t only represented in the streets of this amazing neighborhood, but also in its bars, clubs, and eateries.
