What You Can Expect

New Orleans Garden District Ghost Tour

Garden District

Pull away the Garden District’s luxurious curtain and see the ghostly shadows that lurk beneath. Your  afternoon haunted walking tour begins at the gates of Lafayette Cemetery, one of New Orleans oldest surviving – and still operating – cemeteries. Spanning just one square block, this mysterious site houses more than 7,000 people in tombs and mausoleums, some of which have attracted paranormal 
professionals. Learn about Lafayette’s most famous residents, some of which are fictional such as the Mayfair Witches from Anne Rice’s horror novel The Witching Hour.

Exit the cemetery into the surrounding Garden District. As you stroll through the decorated antebellum‐era neighborhood, you’ll pass by sites of supernatural repute and the actual filming locations from Interview with the Vampire, Double Jeopardy and Dracula 2000. Your dance with the living and dead in New Orleans end back at the starting point by late‐afternoon.

Tour guide was very knowledgable. He answered a lot of questions from the group. He genuinely enjoyed being a tour guide. The tour itself was pretty cool and there was ample time for pictures. I would go again.

Our tour guide Gerry was just great. he was super knowledgable and really had the New Orleans flavour that everyone hopes for when they arrive in the city. We got a lot of knowledge at Lafayette Cemetery which was fabulous, and proceeded to see the Garden District and its incredible homes some of whom belong to very famous people. We were very pleased with this tour and the information that was shared with us and it gave us a really good look into the Garden District which we loved as we were staying in the lower Garden District, awesome time!

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!
