Imagine yourself walking into the after-dark world of New Orleans through its famed 'Cities of the Dead.'

Luxury coaches, equipped with comfortable seats and air conditioning, await to transport you on a journey that unravels the city's history not just through its glittering life and stunning architecture, but through its century-old above-ground tombs and cemeteries.

The tour promises to be more than an ordinary sightseeing excursion. From the moment you board the cozy coach to stepping out at the first cemetery, you'll be experiencing the essence of the city. Given the city’s swampy location, bodies have traditionally been buried above-ground, resulting in expansive and intricate 'Cities of the Dead.'

Exploring cemeteries such as the St. Louis Cemetery No3 or the picturesque Lafayette Cemetery, you see up close the stunning mausoleums and crypts that have transcended time. Each tombstone, delicately engraved with names of past residents, echoes the city's rich narratives.

Speaking of narratives, the tour wouldn't be complete without getting acquainted with the captivating stories of the dead and departed. A highlight for many is the tomb of the reputed Queen of Voodoo, Marie Laveau - a legendary figure whose mystical influence still seems to permeate within these burial grounds. While exploring her final resting place at St. Louis Cemetery, the guide will enthrall you with tales of her life and her unparalleled impact on New Orleans culture.

And there, lurking in the unseen corners of these cemeteries, are tales of love, loss, drama, and intrigue – all blending to define a city that has thrived for centuries. In the unrested spirits that supposedly haunt these graves and the worn-out stones where names have been lost, you find an extraordinary city's history intertwined with life and death. The tour, bringing history to life and death to your doorstep, transcends you into forgotten times and places.
