      New Orleans Cemetery Tour

      New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
      From (USD) $23 Per Adult / $13 Per Child
      • St. Louis Cemetery Number 1: This City of the Dead isn't just NOLA's oldest, it's the largest (thousands of souls rest here) and the most mysterious in this seriously haunted town.
      • Maria Laveau's tomb: Make a wish at the grave of the famous "witch queen of New Orleans," the most revered of the many spirits reportedly roaming the crypts.
      • Haunting history: Learn about the strange burial practices in this above-ground cemetery, its celebrated residents, and the future tomb of a famous celebrity.
      • Entertaining ghost host: Your fright-seeing guide is dying to tell you about the dead and paranormal phenomena. All tales are historically (and unsettlingly) true.


      About This New Orleans Tour

      Grisly murders. Virulent diseases. Notorious buccaneers. And very strange voodoo rituals. With a nefarious past stretching back 300 years, it's no wonder NOLA is America's most haunted city. Scratch the surface of its sinister side, if you dare. But prepare to be spooked as you tread a ghostly graveyard and hear stories about the spectral souls all around you.

      The local folklore is chilling. Among the Cajuns, who settled here in the late 1700s, the powers of evil witches are legendary. Cajuns believed that when a witch died, she might return as a chauchemar or nightmare witch. But this ghostly creature didn't stay in her victims' dreams. Oh no, nothing reticent about this witch. She'd attack them as they slept in their beds.

      Nightmare witches pin their victims down, causing temporary but frightening paralysis. You can't scream, you can't move. And once she has you, she'll ride you like a horse. Many a victim has awakened from these gripping nightmares to find actual whip marks on their body as terrifying proof of the attack.

      Steel your nerves because there's no end to the spine-tingling stories about the phantoms, spirits, and ghouls who continue to haunt the City of the Dead. But don't run off in fright. There's nothing to be afraid of, really. Except losing a few nights' sleep.

      Voodoo on the bayou

      New Orleans Queen of Voodoo Marie Laveau was carried to her grave in St. Louis Cemetery Number 1 in 1881, yet she still holds locals and visitors spellbound. Some believe she appears each year in June on St. John's Eve to lead the faithful in voodoo worship. Others are certain she'll grant wishes from beyond the grave if they leave gifts like coins, cigarettes, candles, beads, or flowers. Sorry, no news to report about the wishers' success.
