New Orleans Haunted History Ghost Tour

New Orleans Ghost Tour

As evening sets in, your tour of New Orleans’ spirited sites and haunted history begins. Meet your ghost‐hunter guide at Reverend Zombie’s Voodoo Shop and steel yourself for a walk through the Vieux Carré (Old Square). Admire the nocturnal nature of the city’s cultural hub, where enchanting nightlife mingles with what lurks in the shadows.

Pass residences of ill‐repute such as the infamous LaLaurie House, where the wicked mistress Madame LaLaurie performed horrifying deeds to slaves, and centuries‐old haunted bars and hotels. Pirate enthusiasts will enjoy a stop at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, former property of the famous privateer Jean Lafitte. One of the city’s oldest buildings, this functioning bar was once the base of a massive smuggling operation. Enjoy a drink or two here in the company of fellow travelers and supernatural buffs.

Between stops, hear other creepy stories that have appeared in History Channel and Discovery Channel exposés. By the end of this chilling 2‐hour tour, you’ll understand why New Orleans is often called the most haunted city in America!

Your 2‐hour tour returns to the starting point in the French Quarter.

The tour was fantastic. Eugenia made the history of the city come alive with her great storytelling. I also liked the break at the haunted establishment as well. We were actually interacting in one of the haunted locales. Whee! Unfortunately no ghosts or orbs in pics this time, though. Maybe next time.

Excellent experience!!! A lot of good ol ghost stories but also a lot of interesting history insights. Our tour guide I think her name was Janice made the stories sound scary and really knew his information.
