CEMETERY TOURS

This city is famous for its cemeteries, which for most visitors to New Orleans are unique and exotic. 

There are over 50 cemeteries in New Orleans that have all or most of the graves above ground, but there is really just a handful that is reasonably reachable for most tourists.

Read our guide to cemetery tours in the city.

We offer pay-what-you-like tours that visit two of them.

SWAMP AND PLANTATION TOURS

Unfortunately, it's not possible to offer pay-what-you-like tours of the swamps and plantations surrounding New Orleans. Believe us, we tried. There are transportation and entry costs that make it impossible.  

However, there are some really excellent and well-reviewed companies offering swamp and plantation tours. Some offer tickets that combine swamp and plantation as well as bus and boat tours.  

We have put together posts that compare both plantation and swamp tour companies to help you choose the best for you.
