Mr. Mason:

 

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.
