This was a very great tour! I did this one and another 4-1 tour with another company. This was much better, even though it was just about the cemetery. Don't forget sunscreen, hat and some water. It was much hotter inside the cemetery. This is a must do! Make sure you are comfortable walking because it is a little bit... More

I visited New Orleans in October 2014, knowing nothing about the city. I decided to take Magic Tours' "Ghost Tour" on a Thursday night and was amazed at how much information my tour guide - Dawn - had at hand and how she made everything so interesting. There were the expected ghost stories without any of the phoney make-up or... More

We did the cemetery tour with DAWN on a very hot sunny day. Dawn did everything she could to make sure we were comfortable on the tour. The tour itself was excellent! Dawn was very knowledgable and gave us a fantastic education about the cemetery, it's residents and the history of New Orleans. Anyone thinking of taking this tour should... More

New Orleans French Quarter is a HUGE subject matter. This is a place with a long and rich history. A tour to cover this area needs to move fast, be organized and interject the color of the area. This tour missed out on that. Our guide was difficult to hear (soft spoken), slow paced and didn't really give the kind... More

This is the only tour we have taken so far & it was GREAT!! We passed many other tours along the way & I was glad we had not taken them, They seemed so impersonal with like 30 people in each. Ours was a small group & we had a great time chatting with each other & Dawn the guide.... More

I really recommend taking this tour. At first, I was not interested in going, but my 18 year old niece who accompanied me on this trip, insisted that we go. We both loved learning about some of the weird happenings in this town. Delphine LaLaurie was truly the most fascinating. She was a macabre and sadistic personality who seemed able... More

We picked Magic Tours' VooDoo and Ghost tour ourselves based on Trip Advisor reviews, and the low cost. We have a two year old also, and we all enjoyed it! Dawn our guide was very enthusiastic about her job and shared history as well as personal stories along the way.We have no experience with other tours, but would recommend this... More

Awesome tour and very informative. If you're looking into learning about New Orleans history, how it became what it is today, and why things are the way they are, this is the tour for you. Andrew did an amazing job. He is funny, sharp, educated, knows New Orleans history, and is a devout New Orlean. Not to mention, he is... More

We were a very small group. There were only 5 of us including Mathew the guide. Our meeting place was the Royal Oyster house on the corner of Royal and St. Louis. We walked straight up St. Louis to St. Louis Cemetery No#1 stopping occasionally for Mathew to regal us with some stories, facts and history about the french quarter,... More
