Tracy through Magic Tours was really great! She made sure we picked up some water before we went on the tour. We loved her stories, accent and conversation. My 5-year-old son especially liked the tidbits about secret rooms at a local restaurant during prohibition. I highly recommend her!

Awesome tour! Our tour guide Randy was the best. He was very knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and was also very entertaining and funny! Our tour group only had about ten people in it and was much smaller compared to some of the other tours that we saw in the cemetery.

This was booked through Viator but Viator did not inform the tour guide that anyone had booked in total there were about 12 people who had booked the tour, but no tour guide. One of the party called the number on the confirmation and got through to Dawn, the tour guide, who had no idea that a tour was scheduled, so a breakdown via Viator. Once Dawn arrived and apologised, the tour went ahead, she was excellent and it was very informative. I would recommend it but maybe book it through someone else?
