I spent a morning with Jeff, my tour guide and visited 4 cemeteries including the Odds Fellow cemetery which is not usually open to the public. Jeff was informative, professional, and a true master of his practice. We talked about symbols, burial practices, history of the sites, and a splash of folk lore which is right up my alley. Would recommend 100%!

Geoff was an amazing tour guide. He has a great personality, so funny and considerate. He’s also extremely knowledgeable of the cemeteries and the history of burials in New Orleans. My family and I enjoyed every bit of this experience and HIGHLY recommend this tour with Geoff. We learned so much.
