Our recent visit to New Orleans - our first - included two Magic Tours itineraries: French Quarter and Garden District. Both were excellent. Both tours started off a bit late since we were waiting for some late arrivals or those without cash, or both, but both tours ultimately included the "full program". Nancy did the French Quarter tour, and she... More

Randy is fun, personable, knowledgeable, and the person (aside from my traveling companions) that I want to spend the most time with in New Orleans. His tours were the highlight of our trip -- and his contribution to my New Orleans family history has been invaluable! Thank you, Randy! You are the BEST!!!! (Also went with other guides, no one...

Just finished the tour with Andrew. This guy knows his stuff. He juxtaposes fact with legend and has a wicked sense of humor. He has an air of brilliance. We assure you that you will not be dissapointed!

As it has been often described as one of the most haunted cities in America, offer is not scarce for paranormal tours in New Orleans so I felt a bit overwhelmed with choice when I started planning my trip. One thing was certain: we were looking to learn a few things of NOLA's rich history, legends and folklore but we... More

We took 3 different tours with Magic Tours between Apr 4-7, 2015. Our guide for the first two tours was Ronald. Some facts were interesting but overall I felt bored and waited until the tour was over. That was our French Quater tour. We asked him a couple of questions, but he could not give the answer, instead just changed... More

It was a rainy Sunday morning and my husband and I were the only two on our tour. Andrew was the best guide we have ever had. He provided so much more info on NOLA and was so interesting. The tour was very informative and respectful of the dead. I appreciated that it wasn't theatrical, just factual. Thank you, Andrew!!!

Most walking tours are highly dependent on the quality of the guide. In our case Matthew was superb! He was friendly, knowledgable, patient and very willing to answer questions. This was a wonderful tour of the GD and Lafayette cemetery and we saw many interesting and fun mansions. Highly recommend!

My sister and I decided to take a trip to New Orleans and we saw there was a Groupon for this company and the night ghost tour. Turns out if you get a guide named Andrew you are not in for fun. We were expecting a good story teller and instead got the guy who is like a magician telling... More

New Orleans cemeteries are now only open to tours. We booked this through Crescent City Tour Agency. We really enjoyed the tour - both parents and teenagers - despite the fact that we aren't guided tour people and really prefer going on our own. Our guide was very informative and very passionate about New Orleans. The cemetery, its history and... More
