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!
Awesome tour!! Our tour guide I forget his name but we took photos of him!! was sooo cool and well informed about the Lafayette cementerio and Garden district story. It was one of the best tour in our visit of New Orleans.
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!
Great tour guide named Eugenia, very interesting stories and gorgeous homes.
One of the best tours ever. Our guide, Carla Boullion was not only entertaining but also an incredible wealth of inforamtion and full of local color. I still cannot shake some of the ghost stories she shared with us. I highly recommend this experience.
Lots of history and ghost stories. Not sure how much is true, but it was fun hearing them! The garden district is a beautiful area and I will definitely be coming back!
Our guide was very good.he gave us a lot of information about history.showed us a lot of houses that belonged to stars. but we didnt get to go into any of the houses and it should have atleast let us do 1. Also didnt include the cemetery. So I recommend getting there extra early if you want to see it

I enjoyed this tour but just a heads up - I only booked this tour because I wanted to go see the cemetery where Interview with the Vampire was filmed and we did get lucky to go on Halloween when they kept the cemetery open. For all you other people who go on the normal Saturday and Sunday trips the cemetery closes at noon on Saturday and is closed all day on Sunday so you will not be able to go inside and see it. I would have not been happy because I think this is something that should be posted since they highlight it as one of the sites. Otherwise we saw some cool homes and the tour guide was very cool and funny.
Beautiful surrounding, entertaining, and you get to visit the stars.
The ghost tour was in the middle of the afternoon. Didn't really have the right mindset at that time of day to be good.
The tour guide looked really bummy. Like Bill Murray in Osmosis Jones when he was sick. Really disgusting. We didn't get to see Marie Laveau's grave as it said we would when I first purchased the ticket. Overall, he was very informative but hygiene wise, just not okay. Wish we would've seen Ms. Laveau's grave.
It was great to know about the history of the cemetery and garden area but it did drag on in a few places.
I would not recommend this tour. Our guide was very unprofessional looking not wearing a uniform, shirt untucked, belly hanging out, ratty shorts, looked like he had been partaking in a few beverages before we arrived and seemed all over the place....he went over in time so we were late getting back. He did provide some useful information, but the other viator tours that we booked we enjoyed more.
It was ok, the guide himself looked very unprofessional! Looked like he just rolled out of bed. He was informative but the tour got kind of boring and kinda dragged on. Out of the 2.5hrs there were only a few ghost stories. Kind of disappointed
Interesting but way too oversold. Guide kept pointing out that he had never had such a big group. That was true. One guide for the mass of people we had, and he kept taking walk-ups made this miserable. He seemed knowledgeable but we couldn't hear or ask questions. Glad he made a lot on this tour because we certainly felt that we didn't get our money's worth.
Would not recommend
Not what we expected at all - tour guide talked about everything and everybody she had met - bit boring
