Our guide Todd was very knowledgable about New Orleans and her history. He was entertaining and shared some great ghost stories.
Stacey was very informative and gave a great tour! She was fun and full of historical facts about the area. Really enjoyed the whole tour.
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!
We took our tour on Halloween night in the rain and it was fantastic! Our guide was so knowledgeable about NOLA history and even got us into 2 haunted buildings. I highly recommend this tour!
If you're interested in learning the history and viewing the spots of ghostly hauntings then this is the tour for you. Our guide Stacey was very informative of the nocturnal goings on. Pity most places were boarded up or an area of business because I would have loved to have gotten a closer look. I highly recommend this tour to those unfamiliar to the area or those who have a craving for history. It wasn't a scary tour, but I liked it nonetheless.
It was interesting hearing about the stories....especially since we were staying at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel which was on the tour as being haunted.
Yvonne a été un guide très agréable en cette fin d'après midi torride. Nous avons commencé par un arrêt prévoyant dans un café hanté qui nous a permis de boire un verre ou acheter de l'eau. Balade agréable dans le quartier français
I'm a solo female business traveler, and this tour was a good way for me to safely venture out and enjoy the French Quarter at night. Our guide Michael was very knowledgeable, and his passion for the rich history of this area was obvious. Expect a lot of walking and then standing while your guide relates the history of the most haunted buildings. You're encouraged to take photos, which may reveal paranormal activity when you later inspect them. (None of mine revealed ghostly apparitions, but it was fun nevertheless.) I enjoyed the tour and the history lesson and wouldn't hesitate to go again.
Note that the online tour description says that the tour begins at the Jackson Brewery. That's a huge building! Don't go to the Bistro Bar; the tour desk is located on the ground floor of the shopping mall.
Did not experience any ghostly experience. Informed that the hotel in which I was staying was one of the haunted New Orleans' hotels. Interesting stories. We witnessed a wonderful lightning experience.
Was good. A little long but overall would recommend if you are interested.
Fairly good. Missed most of the truly historic apparitions, but managed to keep
things friendly and interesting. The rain came down in buckets just before the
walk, threatening the evening, and the guide showed flexibility, but the rain
let up to a trickle the minute we started. That was spooky, in a good way.
This tour is a walking ghost story tour. You simply walk around New Orleans garden district and the tour guide tells you different ghost stories. If you like that kind of thing then do this tour. I was not impressed but maybe it is because I have experienced a true haunting!
Unfortunately this tour was way too much walking for myself and my husband! Our tour guide was informative with all the details he gave as we made numerous stops throughout our walk through the French Quarter. We could tell that he was very passionate about the history of the ghosts and stories of the area. We understood that this walking tour was scheduled for approximately 2 hours. We met our guide at 7:00, so had a light appetizer before the tour, with plans to enjoy dinner after the tour. My husband had to bale out midway through the tour, so he headed back to Jackson Square to wait for the rest of our group. We walked endlessly throughout the French Quarter, only to have him announce the end of the tour at 9:30 p.m., several blocks away from where we began! We were then forced to walk all the way back towards Jackson Square to meet up with my husband. By then we missed our 9:30 reservation for dinner, and were forced to just find any place to eat! I ended up with a huge blister on my foot by the end of the evening! Will never take a walking tour again!!!
Somewhat interesting. The tour guide had a few interesting stories but the was not satisfied. I didn't enjoy walking and standing in empty parking lots.
