Cemetery Tour FAQ

Why do you charge $1 for children 7 and younger on this tour?

An initiative set up by the Archdiocese of New Orleans requires tour companies to pay a fee of $1 per guest, no matter their age for touring St Louis #1. These funds are used for restoration and preservation of our historic cemetery.

I've booked a Cemetery tour. Where do I get my tickets?

Cemetery tour guests can meet their guide at The Voodoo Lounge, 718 N Rampart Street. Family entrance is on Orleans Street. Please arrive 10 minutes early.

Did you make this stuff up?

No! All of our tours are real, true history. We have researched all of our stories to bring you disturbingly funny, historically accurate, real history. Our tour guides are the strangest, most entertaining bunch of real historians you will ever have the pleasure of spending time with!

How long does the tour last?

The Cemetery Tour runs about 2 hours.

What is the walking distance on a tour?

The walking distance for all tours is about one mile. This is taken at a leisurely pace and over the length of the tour.

Can I bring my camera?

Of course! And if you get some great shots, please share them with us. We love to share our guests’ great experience with our fans on Facebook and Twitter! Send photos to frenchquarterphantoms@gmail.com.

Please, no video taping without prior permission.

Do I have to make a reservation?

We do accept walk-up customers for the Ghost & Vampire and Cemetery Tours. Reservations allow us to keep our groups small by having plenty of tour guides on hand. Plus, you save $4 per ticket by booking online!

What days are the tours available?

We tour 364 days a year, the exception being Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras Day). We do not tour that day due to the high volume of people in the French Quarter; you would not be able to hear all of the stories your guide has to share! The Cemetery tour is availabe at 11am and 1pm Monday through Saturday and at 10 am on Sundays.

What if it rains?

Our tours run, rain or shine! There are enough balconies and galleries in the French Quarter to keep our smaller groups positioned out of the rain during storytelling. Bring an umbrella if the forecast looks wet!
