Hear amazing haunted stories that have been reported all around the French Quarter! Learn about Madame LaLaurie, Lafitte's Blacksmith shop and more.
Wonderful tour thru the streets of the French Quarter. Lots of good haunts and stories. I even captured some orbs on my camera.
Our guide Will was awesome...professional, friendly, and patient enough to wait on us while we prepared to tour in a downpour of rain (buying boots and rain poncho's). Will was very knowledgeable of New Orleans' history but the tour was not without very creepy aspects from the changing temperatures in the brotel, to the eerie presence that looms there, to viewing and touching things as Will pours out detail of the dark history surrounding many beautiful historical buildings and sites. A must see is Jackson Square, Decatur Brothel, LaLaurie Mansion, St. Mary's Catholic Church (Convent), and the many hotels with very interesting stories. I'd do it again minus the rain and a definite visit to a cemetery. I captured Madame LaLaurie in my photos and there was some strange occurrences as we left the brothel.
My fiance and I took this tour on our recent trip to New Orleans. Dario was our tour guide and he was very informative and friendly. He spoke loudly so that everyone could hear him which I appreciated. We went to several locations and even asked us if we were up to look at one more (which wasn't originally on the tour)! The residence you enter at end the tour at was very eerie. I highly recommend!
I really loved this tour! Our guide was awesome! We had a smaller group (only 6 of us) so she got to really interact with us vs just telling us things. I loved her focus on history, believe me, her stories are creepy enough without adding any sound effects or silly costumes. She mentioned a few good books to check out when I said I was fascinated with the history surrounding the legends. She also took us into one of the buildings she was telling us about and described what other people have seen and told us where to shoot, although it was easy enough to figure out.
My daughter (17) and I took both the Garden & Cemetery and the walking Haunted tour. This was my fifth trip and her first. I was very impressed! This company hires exceptionally well educated and locally knowledgeable guides. John is a local musician and former Tulane professor. Graham received his graduate degree in New Orleans history from the University of New Orleans. We had a great time, learned a lot and were encouraged to ask questions. Both guides genuinely enjoy their jobs and love this city; this makes a big difference in the quality and fun of the tours. Highly recommended!!
Dario was an amazing tour guide. My 8 year old and I did the ghost tour- it was age appropriate for him. I loved hearing the history of the city, as well as the haunted tales. And going in the haunted cafe was so fun! I don't believe in ghosts but I did get an interesting picture that makes me wonder.... tip: we bought a groupon (in line for tickets!) to save $28!
A great tour with a great tour guide! Steve was an excellent tour guide. Funny and very well read on all the sites we visited. A great deal of you're a college student looking for a tour on a budget.
We took two tours while in NOLA. The first was the ghost tour with Robi, it was a TON of fun! Robi is so funny and has a great theatrical way of telling stories that makes you want to take all your tours with him.
The ghost tour is a great walking tour that takes you into a house which was a lot of fun and different than a lot of the other tours that other companies have offered.
The second tour we took was with Michael, it was the cemetery tour on Sunday. Because no one else showed up my husband and I got a private tour which was really neat, this allowed us to ask a lot of questions about Katrina and some of the history around the area. Michael picked up historically where Robi left off which was really wonderful.
The best part of both the cemetery and ghost tour is how much history you learn about the city, and the origins of some of these tales which is always fun. NOLA is such an old and richly historic city it really is worth taking a tour to learn about it.
I would highly recommend both tours, however for the cemetery tour we did run out of time at the actual cemetery so you may want to go on another day besides Sunday for better hours of operation at the cemetery.
Went with this tour based on the claim that they're the only ghost tour company to actually go inside a haunted house.
Erika was a very knowledgeable tour guide, although when we suggested her info on something she said about American horror story filming was possibly incorrect (we'd had a tour of that exact building that morning) she didn't seem to happy that we had, nor did she bring it up again with the group.
There was around 30 people on the tour, which was too many in my opinion, and from the comments I heard a few times from our tour guide seemed like some of the group had joined ours when they should have waited back for another group.
Where there was a fact to back up a supposed haunting (crime reports / newspaper article etc) it was mentioned, but if there wasn't anything in particular to back something up it was slightly glossed over, but Erika was more than happy to answer any questions about this.
This isn't one of those showy type tours where the guide dresses up in costume & makes a theatrical show out of it - and that's exactly why I liked it!
There's chat about ghosts, vampires, history & crimes along with lots of walking & standing so wear comfy shoes!
Don't be put off by thinking the first courtyard stop is the inside tour - later you'll go into an old house that's totally worth it!
Fun Fact - Nicholas Cage already has a plot & headstone in St Louis Cemetery!
My boyfriend and I booked the ghost tour of the French quarters. The tour was pretty cool. Make sure you wear comfy shoes it is a walking tour.
I'm a huge fan of ghost stories and what better place than NOLA to hear cool stories and see interesting places. I would recommend this tour group, even though it's promoted as a ghost tour it's really a French Quarters history lesson. Either way it was still a good time for a tourist.
