5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This was a fantastic tour! Our tour guide Mikko was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We started off at the cemetery and meandered through the garden district. There was a bit of walking and some of the paths were very uneven, so be wary of that if you have mobility issues. Mikko told us numerous stories about the ghosts of the garden district as well as some general history and trivia of the area. Well worth doing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2012

One of the best tours ever. Our guide, Carla Boullion was not only entertaining but also an incredible wealth of inforamtion and full of local color. I still cannot shake some of the ghost stories she shared with us. I highly recommend this experience.

4 star rating: Recommended May 2014

Our guide was very good.he gave us a lot of information about history.showed us a lot of houses that belonged to stars. but we didnt get to go into any of the houses and it should have atleast let us do 1. Also didnt include the cemetery. So I recommend getting there extra early if you want to see it

4 star rating: Recommended July 2010

I enjoyed this tour but just a heads up - I only booked this tour because I wanted to go see the cemetery where Interview with the Vampire was filmed and we did get lucky to go on Halloween when they kept the cemetery open. For all you other people who go on the normal Saturday and Sunday trips the cemetery closes at noon on Saturday and is closed all day on Sunday so you will not be able to go inside and see it. I would have not been happy because I think this is something that should be posted since they highlight it as one of the sites. Otherwise we saw some cool homes and the tour guide was very cool and funny.

Beautiful surrounding, entertaining, and you get to visit the stars.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2012

The ghost tour was in the middle of the afternoon. Didn't really have the right mindset at that time of day to be good.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2015

It was great to know about the history of the cemetery and garden area but it did drag on in a few places.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this November 2013

Interesting but way too oversold. Guide kept pointing out that he had never had such a big group. That was true. One guide for the mass of people we had, and he kept taking walk-ups made this miserable. He seemed knowledgeable but we couldn't hear or ask questions. Glad he made a lot on this tour because we certainly felt that we didn't get our money's worth.
