What To Expect

As evening sets in, your tour of New Orleans’ spirited sites and haunted history begins. Meet your ghost‐hunter guide in the heart of the French Quarter and steel yourself for a walk through the Vieux Carré (Old Square). Admire the nocturnal nature of the city’s cultural hub, where enchanting nightlife mingles with what lurks in the shadows.

Pass residences of ill‐repute such as the infamous LaLaurie House, where the wicked mistress Madame LaLaurie performed horrifying deeds to slaves, as well as centuries‐old haunted bars and hotels. Enjoy a stop at one of the city's legendary haunted bars, where you can indulge in a drink or two (at your own expense) in the company of fellow travelers and supernatural buffs.

Between stops, hear other creepy stories that have appeared on the History Channel and Discovery Channel. By the end of this chilling tour, understand why New Orleans is often called the most haunted city in America.

Your tour returns to the starting point in the French Quarter.

Great tour, terrible bar experience
Denise_H, Jan 2022
Our tour guide, Claire, was very warm and friendly. Lots of fun stories to keep us entertained. The bar they took us to, however, had a terrible, rude bartender who was completely annoyed we even came in. I’d only do another tour with this company if this bar was skipped in the future.
Great tour and the tour...
Robert_H, Jan 2022
Great tour and the tour guide was awesome and funny. Nice tour around the French Quarter. Worth doing
Not Impressed
Debbie_H, Dec 2021
Tour guide was informative and funny but not enough actual ghostly experiences. Probably would have like the Vampire Tour or Cemetary Tour or better yet the carriage ride tours.
Great Stories

Must Do
Brenda_C, Dec 2021
Fantastic tour! Our guide Joel was extremely knowledgeable as well as entertaining. Walking around the French Quarter at night as the backdrop to the stories and history is fun for all ages.

Lacy did a great job. Great tour. Minimum number of characters is 100, why do they make us say so much?

Fun tour
Katy_B, Dec 2021
This was a fun and informative tour! We viewed some of New Orleans’ most haunted spots and got a history lesson from a history professional along the way.
Bad tour
Christine_N, Dec 2021
What a bad experience!!! We did not like the Tourguides! They are stopping at a bar which takes already 1/3 of the time. No interesting information about haunted stories, instead many rules and advises how to behave during the tour. We cancelled the tour after 1 hour…
Response from Host, Dec 2021
Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you 'did not like the tour guides', however I feel the need to clarify a few of your comments. We take a 15 minute break during a 2 hour walking tour to allow our guests to use the restroom or grab a drink if they wish. Our Ghost Tour is actually packed with great information and haunted stories, as evidenced by the HUNDREDS of 5 Star reviews that we receive on a weekly basis. However, you wouldn't know that if (as you claim) you left the tour halfway through. And the only 'rules' that we explain on the tour are with respect to the French Quarter resident's quality of life issues, as the French Quarter is also a residential neighborhood.
