What You Can Expect

New Orleans Ghosts and Spirits Walking Tour

O'Flaherty's Pub - New Orleans Ghosts and Spirits Walking Tour

Your ghostly adventure starts in the evening at the Lighthouse Ticket Office in the French Quarter. Meet your local guide and steel yourself for a walk through the dark recesses of New Orleans’ haunted history. Cross your fingers that you’ll encounter (or not encounter!) a ghost at one of the eerie venues to come. 

You’ll first arrive at Jackson Brewery and the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, a spirited 200‐year‐old building that has enjoyed many lives as a theater, ballroom, orphanage and convent. Tour the space and learn of the confederate soldier, the lonely ghost dancer, and the apparitions of children and nuns that wander the rooms and halls. 

Afterwards, continue to O'Flaherty's Pub, said to be haunted by the ghosts of Joseph Wheaton, his wife Mary and his mistress Angelique. Hear the humorous tale of an awkward and endless ghoulish conflict that happens all around the pub.

Between stops, hear other creepy stories — some featured in History Channel and Discovery Channel exposés — including the legend of an octoroon woman named Julie whose spirit waits eternally for her lover at the Bottom of the Cup Tearoom on Royal Street!

Your 2‐hour tour returns to the starting point in the French Quarter.

The tour was great! Our guide Todd really knew the history and was a great story teller.
I must note, that the other reviews that talked about come hungry were NOT talking about this tour. We stopped at one restaurant for a look at the courtyard and a few minutes to grab a drink if desired. But, no food.

So, the tour IS highly recommended, but eat first or plan on a late dinner. :

We met our tour guide Todd at the lighthouse. Todd was very fun, informative and knowledgeable tour guide. After seeing all the sights on the tour, I was having a conversation with him about Madam Marie Delphine Lalaurie's home. He stated it was not on the tour. He told my traveling companions and I where it was on Royal St. I don't know if I should include this, but as this was the best tour, I am. After Todd concluded the tour and was off duty, he asked if we would like to see the house. Of course we said yes. So we stopped at a bar and I bought him a beer. With cocktails in hand, we walked to this house where he gave the history of the house. Upon arrival, my girlfriends and I took several pics and had dancing orbs from the outside of the house. We were told that Nicolas Cage had owned the house but since his tax evasions, it was confiscated from him and no one currently lived in the house. As we took pics, a gentleman walked up to my sister and asked why we were taking pictures of this house. We told him because it was haunted. We also told him that local legend states that locals will not walk under the balcony of the home as well. We watched him as he walked under the balcony and disappeared into a door way. Suddenly he was standing on the balcony talking to us. We asked him several questions to which he would neither confirm or deny. All in all, this was the best tour we had taken and Todd was an absolute gem for not only the tour, but the after tour as well. He totally made our trip. Thanks Todd!
