One of our favorite parts of our trip

My boyfriend and I had an AMAZING time on our tour! Our guide Scott was both informative and a great storyteller, setting the scene and the atmosphere as we walked the French Quarter, infusing dark humor along with some of the tales and engaging with our entire group (which had a pretty wide age gap, in our estimation). He was also a great source for references if we wanted to learn more about any of the locations we went, and happy to answer questions on both tour & none tour related topics while we walked. Cannot recommend this company/tour highly enough and will for sure be booking again the next time we get to visit :)

Excellent, Informative Tour

I've been on one other ghost tour in the French Quarter. What set this one apart from the other, and what I liked about this one was that they tied actual happenings in history to the ghost, vampire, witch tales of New Orleans. The tales are fascinating in themselves, but are more interesting when actual U.S. history backs them up. The tour was the perfect length, not too short, but not too long, and the tour guide was an entertaining story teller. Would definitely recommend.

The stories weren't very entertaining and the guide wasn't very engaging or personable. Half of the group left and dropped out a few stops into the tour.

I would like to highly recommend doing this tour with Jennifer (Fun Grandma). We had her for our 7:00 tour on March 3rd. She had a great personality, was professional and gave us lots of information about ghostly haunts at various stops along our tour. She had a great speaking voice so all of our group (about 20) could easily hear her interesting, historical stories of the dead without being disrespectful to any of the deceased. I would love to go on more tours with her in the future. And even though this is the third time I have booked this tour over the years, I have always enjoyed hearing different stories from various guides. Just keep in mind there are 2 guides named Jennifer. Make sure you get the one known as “Fun Grandma” if you have a choice.

The Group was too big. There’s too much noise in the French quarter for a group that size to be able to listen to the guide.

Not very engaging with the group. Gave her story of the location and quickly moved on to the next. In addition, the tour ended at a different location from where it began. Being left alone in a new city and just having a tour about its history (a bit unsettling) was uncomfortable.

Zak was absolutely amazing! Great stories, great volume, good size group but not too big. Well worth the money paid for a nice evening walk around town.
