Our tour was led by Terri who was so knowledgeable and excited about the cemetery! She answered all our questions and took us within the history of not only the cemetery but the city!

The communication was great before the tour and Terri was there to greet us a little early at the meeting place (by the way, many tours I have been on are NOT specific enough about where you are supposed to meet, but Steve's made it easy by giving exact address, description of guide, and picture with arrows on where to meet). Terri was very knowledgeable and also passionate about sharing the history of the cemetery and the of New Orleans, kind of a 2 for 1 deal. Please be aware that many of the tour companies book to the max that are allowed in the cemetery, but Steve's does not. I saw one group of 26 walk in behind us and trying to stay with the group and tour guide would have been close to impossible in the tight spaced once block area that we covered. Also, book the early tour (when other folks are hung over), as this place gets real crowded real fast during peak times.

Betsy was our tour guide and she was very informative and funny too! The tour was very interesting and I would recommend it. We went on a Saturday so the cemetary was very busy with multiple tours going on from multiple tour companies, sometimes we had to wait to see certain areas so maybe a weekday would have been less busy

We took the tour with Angie from "Tours by Steve" and as we encountered other tour groups in the cemetery came to the conclusion that ours was the best. Informative and entertaining without going over the top.

Our tour guide Betsy, was prompt, energetic, and very down to earth. My wife and I were the only people in the tour for that time slot so we got to have all the attention. She was very knowledgeable and made the experience more personalized. Thanks again
