One of the highlights of the tour is the visit to the historic cemeteries, often referred to as “Cities of the Dead.” These above-ground tombs, unique to New Orleans due to the high water table, are not only architectural marvels but also the final resting places of some of the city’s most notorious figures. As you stand among the ornate mausoleums and crumbling headstones, the stories of the dead come alive. Learn about the mysterious practices of grave robbing and the rituals that were believed to protect the living from the spirits of the dead.

The tour also takes you to the site of one of the most infamous events in New Orleans’ history: the gruesome murders committed by the Axeman of New Orleans.
