My partner and I did 2 tours- The French Quarter one day and the Garden District the next. We had the very good fortune of having the same tour guide for both tours- but given the professionalism of our experience with this outfit I expect all of their guides are as superb as the one we had. New Orleans is... More

Great tour! Dawn had a ton of cool info and history to give. You can tell she really loves her job. The cemetery was amazing! The one thing I would change is I wish we had at least the last 15 minutes to just wander. There were times I saw tombs that looked beautiful one way and she would lead... More

My bachelorette party and I went on the ghost tour. Dawn was our guide and she was so great! She was very knowledgeable and so funny. I really enjoyed her genuine love of the city and her personal stories of spooky encounters!

We lucked out and had the same guide for both Magic Tours--St. Louis Cemetery and Voodo, Vampires and Ghosts. Andrew was the best tour guide we could have asked for, and his knowledge and experience with N.O.L.A. history and culture made for two outstanding experiences.

We chose this tour because it took us on a different tour route than the other tours. It was a large group for our tour and we had a few intoxicated guest that joined us. Andrew was our guide and he has the gift to tell a good story. He handled the intoxicated guest well and was able to continue... More

I went on this tour with a group of friends. We were pretty skeptical and a few were about to not go. Good thing they changed their minds. We all loved it. We had Andrew as our tour guide and I can't express how fantastic he was. It was a haunted tour but he added so much history and even... More

Great mixture of history, local stories and background about area. Adults enjoyed the two hour tour but noticed the teens got a little bored after first hour. Tour guide knew her stuff and was only stumped by one question the group asked. Went out of her way to bring ‘local’ flavor to the tour by explaining how and why things... More

My husband, our 4 kids (ages 14-20) went on the Magic Ghost Tour this past Saturday night with tour guide Randy (I believe that was his name). He was very likable, a good story teller, well organized and obviously has been doing this a long time and still enjoys it. All 6 of us enjoyed the tour very much in... More

We did the ghost tour with Randy and had a fantastic time. He was very knowledgable and entertaining. We had a large group and he did a great job of keeping everyone together and keeping some of the rather drunk tourists in line without being rude. It was cold and rainy and was very accommodating to keep us all dry.... More

Our family took the 2 hour St Louis Cemetery Tour with Dawn. Fascinating tour. Dawn was punctual, professional, engaging. She was also passionate and respectful about the cemetery and New Orleans' unusual burial practices. Great tour.
