The cemetery was very interesting, lots of info and stories as well. Would be really cool and special if it included another cemetery as well, (it would help to divide up the tour groups that all seem to arrive at 10am, gets a little crowded). Great tour guide, michael same gentleman as the ghost and spirit tour. Only disappointment was not a lot of gris gris on tour, no gris gris bag as advertised on website, not a lot of info except marie laveau and her tumb.
