Do you offer any tour discounts?

We don’t currently offer tour discounts for students, military, seniors, AAA or other groups. We do occasionally offer promotional coupon codes online and through advertisements. SOC tours for children under 12 years old are free.

Do you give cemetery tours all year long?

Yes, we give cemetery tours 7 days a week, all year long. We do not give tours on the following holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Mardi Gras and Easter Sunday.

Can tickets for cemetery tours be reserved by phone and paid for in person prior to the start of the tour, or can they only be purchased online?

We do not take “reservations” per se (holding a spot on a tour without prior payment). A New Orleans City Ordinance limits tours to a maximum of 28 people. Due to this fact, we cannot just “hold” a place for people who may or may not show up. As a result, you must book a tour. This can be done three ways: 1.) online through our website using a credit card. 2.) by phone using a credit card. 3.) you can just walk-up before the tour starts with payment of cash only. With the walk-up option you will be taking a chance that the tour has already reached it’s maximum of 28 persons. Bookings by website or phone must be made at least 2 hours before the tour starts.

Do you do special, private and group tours?

Save Our Cemeteries offers a unique & educational tour experience for school field trips, corporate groups, families and other larger parties.
