Membership is free and open to all New Orleans licensed tour guides and companies, except for New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries and Cemetery Tours NOLA LLC due to the current litigation.


We have three main reasons to exist:

1) protection of industry and public rights relating to cemeteries, 

2) advancement of industry and public education relating to cemetery law, and

3) maintenance of public cemeteries in order to benefit society and lessen the burdens of government.

Protecting the Public's Right to Free Access to Public Cemeteries

Since 2015, New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries (NOCC) has unlawfully charged mandatory entry and tour fees at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, which is a religious public cemetery and free to the public for over 200 years. Now NOCC and Cemetery Tours NOLA LLC (CTN) plan to continue the unlawful fees at fixed levels and exclude all other licensed tour guides and companies from St. Louis Cemeteries Nos. 1 & 2.

The industry has needed an association for a while, but we are now united against these threats to (1) the public's right of reasonable access to the city's historical cemeteries and (2) our right to compete fairly in the cemetery tour industry.
