The Department of Safety and Permits has the following responses to your inquiries:
There are currently 1,088 licensed tour guides in the City of New Orleans. The City issues permits for anyone conducting a tour, thus someone conducting tours in a cemetery would need a tour guide permit. We do not issue permits that are solely for cemetery tours. Any licensed tour guide can conduct a cemetery tour.
On behalf of the custodial department(s), our office has responded to your request and considers this request closed.
