On January 10, I took the St Louis #1 cemetery tour with Donald Crais as my guide. It was unbelievable how much information Donald imparted on this tour. He made it fun, interestIng and educational as he knew the true history of the cemetery and the area around it. Wonderful personality and truly made his tour most memorable. Savvy Native and Donald will be my “go to” service for my future visits to New Orleans.

It was December 26, and we took the 1030a tour. Jonn was our guide and he knew everything there was to tell about the old City Cemetery. If he has not told me he was not a ‘local’ I would not have known. He even engaged our 16y.o. Son and had him laughing. Something we rarely see from our son these days. Cool Destinations and Savvy Native have a gem in Jonn.

This was the last stop before mom and I headed to the airport after a wonderful time in New Orleans and at CrimeCon 2019. Thank you very much, to our guide Donald, for a great trip through history!

Donald was an excellent tour guide. The way he provided the information was a good mix of factual information and nonfiction storytelling. He talked about life in New Orleans during the times the cemetery was active so we could understand the context.

Je me suis rendue à pieds au cimetière, ne sachant pas qu'il n'était pas ouvert au public. J'ai eu une visite privée avec John comme guide pour 20$. Tout simplement génial, oui pour l'histoire du cimetière mais aussi l'histoire de la Nouvelle-Orleans, du Quartier Français.
