Highly recommend for anyone looking for a darker NOLA experience.
While I’m sure all the guides are phenomenal, if you want a bad a** guide, request him!
This is a very educational tour, we had a good time.

Better experience, better people, papa legba
Ian_I, Jun 2023
My wife and I went on the 6/6 8pm hellvision tour and it was great! I've lived in new Orleans before and even I learned some stuff! Our guide was energetic and led the group very well through the busy FQ.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thanks Ian!! We wish we could give YOU a 5-star review for the wordplay in your review title...that may be the best one we've ever seen. We're always honored when we get feedback like this from locals (former and current) so this review really made our day. Thank you for this and please check out our other tours the next time you're back in town!
Not Scary! Slow, long lectures and not many stops
Kelly_F, Jun 2023
The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans! The problem was the length of time the lectures went on at each stop. You can't make people stand at the same spot for 15-20 minutes at every stop and discuss the history of New Orleans. This was supposed to be an adults-only ("which we thought meant scary or terrorizing"), but it was mainly a history tour that had mentions of ghosts, voodoo and vampires. Plus, the groups were way too large... You can get all of the history and more, and enjoy it a lot more on the Haunted Pub Crawl tour from Ghost City Tours. (We don't work for them, but we did both of these tours on the same weekend)
Response from Host, Jun 2023
HI Kelly, thanks for sharing your honest feedback and we're sorry that the tour didn't meet your expectations. Although we want to include as much depth in our stories as possible we agree that it's important to find a balance between that and the amount of time we spend at each spot so your input will be valuable in helping us do just that. To clarify about our adults-only policy, the reason for that is not due to the nature of the content but rather because many visitors to New Orleans prefer to enjoy experiences that don't include anyone underage in the group. As far as the group sizes, we do limit ours to 20 people max, which is considerably smaller than most tour companies in the French Quarter allow, and if you found yourself with any group smaller than ours you were just fortunate to catch them on a slow day for them. To be clear though, our tours are definitely not pub crawls and those who prefer that type of experience may not find our tours very satisfying.
Jeremy is the best!
Jessica_B, Jun 2023
Jeremy Trager was the best! If you’re booking a tour with Hottest Hell Tours you better hope and pray you get Jeremy! My sister and I did the VIP tour with him on Friday June 2nd. Jeremy has great charisma, he’s knowledgeable, funny, and has an amazing personality! I’ve told all my friends and family about him and this tour. I will definitely be booking another tour the next time I’m in New Orleans.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Jessica, you and your sister are 100% our people! We are so grateful to get 2 wonderful 5-star reviews from 2 awesome people and will definitely pass on the compliments to Jeremy. We also LOVE frequent fliers and cannot wait to walk the street of sin with you and your friends/family soon! Thank you again so much for choosing Hottest Hell & until we see you again, happy hauntings!
Good time
Angela_R, Jun 2023
John was our tour guide and did an excellent job of explaining the "lore" and the truth that could be verified. Extremely interesting and entertaining
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Angela, thank you! We appreciate the 5-star review of Jon's tour and that you appreciate how he draws the lines between our lore & true dark history. Thank you for taking time to tell others how interesting and entertaining your tour experience was with Hottest Hell!
Honestly, it was super...
Graham_M, Jun 2023
Honestly, it was super boring and we didn't see much. Would not recommend. Mostly the guide just talked at us.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Hi Graham, thanks for the feedback and we're sorry to hear you were disappointed. We do visit every possible location in the French Quarter related to our stories and while we would love to take our guests inside them, unfortunately that's not possible as they are all either private residences or business that don't allow tour groups inside. We'd love to hear exactly what you felt was missing our could have been done better so please feel free to contact us at with any details you can provide.
The professor was awesome!!
Cathe_B, Jun 2023
Actually all of the stories are rememberable with the way the professor told them. But I enjoyed Zac and Addie and the vampire story
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Cathe, thank you! We appreciate the 5-star love for how rememberable your experience was with The Professor! His presence and candor really make for an awesome tour. Thank you again so much for choosing Hottest Hell!
History, Crime, Voodoo and Libations...what more could you want
Tracy_V, Jun 2023
Loved Ricardo's energy and enthusiasm! He was super knowledgeable. Great way to learn some history and folklore and enjoy an evening in NOLA.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Tracy!! There's nothing quite like Ricardo's energetic style and he's truly one of the most unique guides in the whole city. Your kind words are truly appreciated and we'd love to have you back some time!
Great for history buffs
Cindy_C, Jun 2023
John was fantastic! We really enjoyed listening to the true history behind some of the villains. Can’t wait to do another one!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Cindy!! You sound like exactly the kind of person we designed our tours for, and we'd love to share more with you whenever you're ready! It's great to hear that you liked Jon's style and stories so much and we truly appreciate you taking the time to post this awesome review!
Doug rocks = )
DAnn_Y, Jun 2023
Doug was a fantastic tour guide! His lively telling of the stories really held our attention. He was funny and personable and did a great job keeping an eye on all of us in his group and he was always so polite to all the people in different tours going by. Doug made it a great experience all around!! Thanks Doug!!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank YOU!! We know it takes more than great stories to make a great takes amazing people like Doug who also happen to be natural-born storytellers. Thanks for sharing this with everyone and please come see us again soon!
Great Nighttime Adventures
Kat_B, Jun 2023
Easy meeting spot in front of the Armstrong Park and the check-in was really fast. Our tour guide Claire was so knowledgeable and very entertaining. The tour hit a lot of really great highlights throughout the city and had a nice break halfway through to get drinks and bathroom stops. If you are looking for a great historical and fun tour, definitely recommend this tour (and especially Claire)!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Kat!! It sounds like Claire delivered exactly the kind of experience we want all of our guests to have and hearing this kind of feedback always makes our day. Thanks for the fantastic review and recommendation!
Claire was an excellent...
Jessica_S, Jun 2023
Claire was an excellent tour guide! Very informative. Funny and relatable. Learned a lot about history and creepiness of the French Quarter.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Jessica!! Claire's relatability-ness is definitely a big part of what makes her such a great guide and so popular with our guests. We're glad you enjoyed the time with her so much, and even learned something along the way. Thanks for the fantastic review!
GREAT walking tour for travelers
Michael_D, Jun 2023
Charlie was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and personable. We came away feeling like we’d made a great decision on our ghost tour. I appreciated the guides calling to make sure we were on our way, and really enjoyed getting to see some of the historic points of New Orleans some out of towners like us would typically not even know about.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Michael!! We really enjoyed having your group with us last night and we agree that you picked the perfect way to learn the best secrets the city has hidden in her streets. Thanks for the awesome review!
Flat and dissapointing
Kosov_H, Jun 2023
Tour guide and his stories were not believable and lacked any energy. We were left wanting more throughout the tour.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Hi Kosov, thanks for sharing your honest feedback and we're sorry that the tour didn't really hit the spot for you. All the stories we share are thoroughly researched and vetted and the guide you were with is an actual history professor, and we'd received a great response from others who were in the same group, including several of the ladies in your own party. However we understand that our brand of storytelling isn't for everyone, and we'd love it if you could reach out to us directly at with any additional details you can provide regarding what about the stories you found to be questionable or lacking.
Douglas_T, Jun 2023
Scott was AMAZING!! This was my sons’ first experience in New Orleans and this was the cherry on top!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Douglas!! We think everyone who's visiting our great city for the first time should take a walk with one of our guides to get a sense of what the city is all about, and we're thrilled to hear that Scott helped make your son's first trip here so special. Thanks for sharing this with everyone and we'll look forward to seeing you all next time!
Incredible, Informative, Worth it
Meredith_L, Jun 2023
Ricardo was incredible! An amazing storyteller and such a cool human! We would definitely go again!!!!!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Meredith!! We don't think we've ever heard a better way to describe Ricardo than as "such a cool human" and we couldn't agree more. There's just something special about him that has to be experienced to be understood and we'd love it if you come back when you can and spend some more time with us!
Worth it!
Jennifer_K, Jun 2023
Scott was an awesome tour guide, incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Learned a lot about Nola’s spooky history. Definitely recommended!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Jennifer!! This is exactly the kind of experience we want all of our guests to have and we wouldn't be able to pull that off without incredible storytellers like Scott. We really appreciate the recommendation and we'd love to see you again whenever you have the time!
Well Worth it!
Leslie_S, Jun 2023
Claire was an excellent tour guide! She had great stories to share and was very knowledgeable about the city!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you Leslie!! We know Claire is a true gem...we're fortunate to have her as part of the Hottest Hell family, and it's easy to see why she's so popular with our guests. Thanks for the awesome review, and please come check out our other tours the next time you visit!
Ghost Tour, NOLA Style
John_Q, Jun 2023
First of all, we had a blast! The knowledge of the tour guide was flawless. She always made sure that we were comfortable and observed our surroundings to make sure we were safe. To sum it all up, it was a great experience to spend with family and friends and learn a little more history about New Orleans.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you John!! We love nothing more than to help families and friends make great memories like this together so we're delighted that it was such a great experience for you! We really appreciate this wonderful review!
Highly recommend!!
Tori_K, Jun 2023
Had to check out the ghost, true crime, voodoo, and vampire walking tour while in NOLA. If you’re lucky enough to get Jeremy T. as your tour guide, you will absolutely love it!! Thank you Jeremy for making my trip so memorable. I learned so much about the city’s history, you’re a fabulous guide!! :)
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you, Tori! We are thrilled you had such a 5-star experience on Jeremy's tour and are grateful you took the time to leave a detailed recommendation for others! Jeremy's tour really is something special and we are so glad it was such a memorable time for you as well.
Fun and informative
Sandra_S, Jun 2023
We enjoyed the tour; our guide was very informative and entertaining. Having a smaller group allowed everyone to be closer to the guide and hear what he was saying.
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Hi Sandra! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a 5-star review of your tour experience with us. We are glad you appreciated the smaller group size and found your guide to be informative and entertaining, that combo definitely makes for a good time!
