Our tour guide was entertaining and very knowledgeable about vampire history in New Orleans. He made an effort to speak loudly enough for everyone to hear, and kept an eye out around us. There were some shady characters lurking around the French Quarter, but I felt like we were safe with him. It was a unique adventure.
My only complaint would be that this tour is listed as Wheelchair Accessible. Well, not really. There were a few steps and a curb that had to be tackled. Fortunately my disabled friend could handle those. If you're completely wheelchair bound, I wouldn't try it. It was more of an afterthought for the guide.
Our great tour guide introduced us to scary vampire legends in the French Quarter. He clearly had a grasp of history, gave dramatic presentations, enjoyed his subject matter, and engaged personally with all of the group members. My daughter and I are big fans of vampire literature, having watched True Blood, read all the Sookie, Twilight and Anita Blake series, now working our way through Anne Rice, as well as novels set in New Orleans by Margaret Hambly, Julie Smith, and James Lee Burke. For the guide to hold his own given our level of interest and personal, cultural and historical awareness is really impressive! He even inspired me to purchase the Haunted History book. My daughter and I talked about the tour for the next three days. Clearly, a terrific time was had by all! The guide paced the walk quickly but comfortably, and we covered a lot of ground, enjoying a nice rest stop at a reputed vampire bar before heading back to Jackson Square. The tour was more historical and informative and much less cheesy than I had anticipated.

Our guide was extremely entertaining. We learned a lot about the history of New Orleans on this tour. Many photo opportunities. There is also a scheduled break for food, drinks, and restrooms in the middle of the tour. Our guide couldn't have been better. We were never rushed. I would take this tour again.
The tour was very interesting and a little creepy. Our tour guide walked very fast and I felt like I was running to keep up with him, but that would be the only complaint I would have about it. It was very informative and our tour guide painted a very detailed picture of old New Orleans. He practically made it feel like we were there. Very very worth taking.
Our arrogant but informative host made it quite clear that he provided the laughs and entertainment. Overall, it was still a very good tour, well paced, and informative. I would recommend this tour. Both my nine year old son and I enjoyed it.
Pretty interesting. Mostly surrounding unresolved murders, I was expecting more in-depth stories.
It was interesting for the lovers of "Interview with a Vampire", but they took it quite seriously and I had expected it to be more funny - wrong guess.
The tour was interesting but the tour guide was lacking. It seemed like he was bored or annoyed and cared more about the bar stops. It would have been better with another guide.
It was okay, really nothing to write home about... Not scary enough...
This tour was very interesting despite the cold night. It afforded us the opportunity to safely walk the French Quarter after dark, taking in the nuances and beauty unseen in the daylight. Great pics. However, there were two negatives. One, there seemed to be a literal traffic jam of night tours--often we ended up in the same block as one or two others, making it difficult to hear our guide. Two, we didn't know our tour would include a 15 minute rest stop at a very crowded local bar filled with another tour group. Plus our tour guide, while very knowledgeable, had obviously imbibed while inside, and even had a fresh drink in her hand as we continued the tour. Isn't there a separate "cocktail tour" for this?
The guide was sarcastic and came over as he had better places to be. The reference to vampires was minimal. Can I recommend this? No try another company.
Boring! The guide did a good job and did his best to engage the group, but the tour just wasn't what I was expecting.
This is not even worth rating, it was so awful we left half way through I only put one star as i had to to put this review in. The guide really thought he was a vampire and never finished off a story before going into another meaninglis one - DO NOT DO THIS TOUR!
