We really expected that tour, eager to learn about voodoo traditions, legends and histories. We learned nothing that is not published in a basic NOLA tour guide. Sure we've seen Marie Laveau's supposed caveau, but we didn't learn anything about her. Our tour guide spoke more

Response from GrandTour793596, Guest Relations Manager at New Orleans Cemetery and Voodoo Walking Tour
Responded 5 Mar 2020
We are sorry you feel deceived. We do promote your learning of the history of burial rituals and the evolution of voodoo. We regret to hear you did not enjoy the historical narratives and found the information "basic NOLA." We encourage our guests to ask any questions during the tour if you wish to hear more on a particular topic or particular figure.
