Very informative. A lot of history and interesting stories. Sandra was the guide and she did a great job. Offers a different side of New Orleans that we would not have been able to experience without her.

Very informative and entertaining tour. We went after a mid afternoon rain with added a little atmosphere to the experience. Our original tour guide suffered an injury but there was a back up and we went on our way. Would recommend the tour if you have an interest in the dark side of things.

A little sunshine in a dreary COVID filled NOLA

Our tour guide, Trevor the Pirate, was amazing. His stories were spot-on to the tales and folklore I grew up on, being from just a couple hours "down the road" in South Louisiana. I especially loved his personal anecdotes thrown in and his ability to get the group expressing their thoughts. It was the highlight of our trip to NOLA for a midsummer COVID break.

Awesome! We're SO honored to have been the highlight of your trip <3 Come back and see us again!!

Well dressed guide for the occasion, entertaining stories and story telling. The stars were aligned tonight... no crowds and quiet night. I’ll admit, made it that much better to participate.

Robyn was an amazing tour guide. As it turns out this was his first tour in three month's due to the 2020 pandemic. He gave great descriptions of what we were looking at. To end the great tour he walked us back to the street our hotel was on.

We are here in NOLA just as phase 2 after covid19 is being worked in, so many people are just waking up from 2.5 months of down time. I am giving our tour guide the benefit of the doubt that this is why he could not remember stories or names or events. We chose a tour for the storytelling. We left 35 minutes into the tour. On the good side, the tour left right on time. And honestly I would try again if we come back this way. I did text the tour company and explain our early departure and was a little disappointed not to get a response at all.
icon Response from Host , Jun. 2020
Hi there! I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your tour. Our guides just got back to work after not telling these stories for quite a while, so I do apologize for that. We'd be happy to offer you vouchers for a tour with another one of our guides for any future date. We don't have a "text" line so I'm not sure who you texted but we have not received anything. I'd be happy to speak with you about this further so we can fix this for you! Please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com. Thank you!

One of our favorite parts of our trip

My boyfriend and I had an AMAZING time on our tour! Our guide Scott was both informative and a great storyteller, setting the scene and the atmosphere as we walked the French Quarter, infusing dark humor along with some of the tales and engaging with our entire group (which had a pretty wide age gap, in our estimation). He was also a great source for references if we wanted to learn more about any of the locations we went, and happy to answer questions on both tour & none tour related topics while we walked. Cannot recommend this company/tour highly enough and will for sure be booking again the next time we get to visit :)
