Dead Sexy Tour

by Two Chicks Walking Tours Duration 2h Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $25

At the turn of the 19th century New Orleans' red light district was certainly roaring. Storyville was flourishing and the jazz scene lured party-goers of all stripes to the area's dance clubs and brothels. Delve into this sinfully intriguing era in the city's past, starting your afternoon at the tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveaux.

Meet up with your guide at a neighborhood coffee shop. Before delving into the sordid past of Storyville—the nickname of the legally sanctioned vice district—make your way to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 to learn about the Creole custom of above ground burials.

Walk past wall vaults, family tombs, and the final resting place of Marie Laveaux. After checking out the cemetery, follow your guide into the edgier topic of the sex trade. The once pervasive industry included high end establishments, noted politicians and of course powerful madams. Continue your discussion of prostitution and politics over drinks at a fantastic bar downtown.
