Traveler Tips

I recommend arriving early and communicating well if you go with a family or small group as coordinators do not make attempts to seat groups together unless requested.
The tour started late and ended early and the tour was not worth the price.
If you are a regular visitor in the city, I’m not sure it’s worth the cost.

Do it
Edwina_S, Sep 2022
Very cool to ride around the French Quarter in a carriage. Kaylie was our tour guide and she was informative and funny! Cody the mule was awesome as well 😉. A very nice experience with neat ghost stories.
Not as advertised
Anthony_L, Aug 2022
Advertised as being one hour long and as having a maximum of eight people. Well, it was way shorter than an hour resulting in stories not fully told and they were more than eight people in the carriage making for a crowded experience. This tour tour advertised one thing but delivered another. Not worth the price due to this.

KIMBERLY_S, Aug 2022
The guide was very knowledgeable. My family and I really enjoyed the experience!!! We will definitely do it again.
Glad we did it. Good experience
Kim_S, Sep 2022
Good humor, good spooky stories, nice tour of the French Quarter. Lucas did a great job. Could be a challenge for some climbing into the carriage so keep that in mind.
Tour guide KC is the best
angela_h, Sep 2022
KC was our tour guide and Lou was our mule. We all enjoyed the whole tour and the enthusiastic fun way that KC tells his stories. We had him when we came to New Orleans 3 years ago and we’re excited to have him again. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
It’s a MUST do!!

Sarah and Armstrong made our evening!! Sarahs storytelling skills are amazing. She gives you a ton of information but delivered in a style that isn’t overwhelming. Being in the carriage gave you a feeling of being away from the crowds and very personal!!!!!
Worthwhile ride
FranciscoJ_R, Aug 2022

Melissa_L, Sep 2022
Our tour guide (I forget her name) and mule, Desire, we’re wonderful! Great stories and a fun, slow ride through the French Quarter and nearby area
Curious about the macabre history of the French Quarter- this is it!
Taryn_C, Sep 2022
Lucas and Praline were amazing tour guides. Lucas was super knowledgeable, charismatic and did a fantastic job of connecting with everyone in the carriage. Praline did a great job of pulling it :). The tour itself was everything it promised to be- ghosts, murders, and everything you would want to know about the occult in the French Quarter! A must do for anyone into true crime and the macabre.
Worth the ride!!!
Pamela_D, Aug 2022
