Overview

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chartres Street, New Orleans, Louisiana

Gathering at the rear of the Old Louisiana Court of Appeals, you will meet your enthusiastic and wise tour guide. Please make sure you bring a camera, as you will want to capture memories of the many amazing things you will learn about the historic sites and people incorporated into the American Horror Story (Coven) TV show. You will see where Marie Laveau and Madame LaLaurie lived and where they socialized, in addition to visiting the locations where significant events happened, both in the show and in real life!

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: New Orleans Pharmacy Museum, New Orleans, Louisiana

The first stop after this gruesome introduction will be the site where Madame LaLaurie’s body was exhumed by Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange) and her sinister henchmen.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: French Quarter, New Orleans, Louisiana

Then it’s off to the location where Fiona and the young witches, dressed in black, perform the powerful and chilling “witches’ walk”. You will get a chance to take pictures and/or video of yourself walking in the those very same spooky footsteps.
You will stop at several places along the walk and be reminded of some famous lines, such as when Madison says, “Where are we going? My p*@#y is starting to sweat.”. At the end of the walk, you will have the chance to stop at a few places for memorable shots from the witches’ walk.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: French Quarter, New Orleans, Louisiana

From there, you will head over to the magnificent historic house featured on the show as a museum where many interior scenes, both past and present, were filmed. Your guide will explain various scenes from the show that were filmed on location at this site.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans, Louisiana

Leaving this location, you’ll head to the St Louis Cemetery #1, where you will visit three very significant tombs. Firstly, you will see the reputed tomb of voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau (who is said to still haunt the French Quarter). It is said to be the second-most visited tomb in the US. Next, you’ll visit movie actor, Nick Cage’s pyramid tomb and learn why he chose New Orleans St Louis Cemetery #1 for his final resting place. The last stop in the cemetery is the tomb of Madame LaLaurie, the infamous sadistic slave torturer who was run out of the city by enraged local citizens. Despite her infamy, you’ll learn how she came to be buried in this cemetery, after being forced into exile in Paris, France after her crimes were uncovered.

Duration: 25 minutes

You will then visit the site of Marie Laveau’s former home. In those mysterious walls, you will learn more about Laveau’s life and how those facts were integrated into American Horror Story.
