It was if we had our own private tour guide. My family were the only group Dawn had. She was excellent. She knew all the locals and was full of knowledge! Just a pleasure to spend the am with and learned so much of the wonderful history of exciting New Orleans. We highly recommend this company and Dawn!

We took the Ghosts, Vampires, and Voodoo tour with Barry last week. We knew going into it that this would be more of a "historical" tour than a theater production but Barry was a hit nonetheless. His storytelling was engaging and entertaining, and effortlessly weaved history with legend. It's always fun to tour with a true local, and if you're... More

We took the St Louis Cemetery #1 tour on 06/25/2014. I'm not sure if it was because it was the 1:00 pm tour, in the heat of the day, but my wife and I were the only ones on the tour. Our guide, Dawn, was awesome!! She was a wealth of knowledge, and gave us much more than the book... More

Our eight family members took the cemetary and garden district tour with Magic Tours on Saturday, June 14, 2014. Matthew was our tour guide. He started us off in Lafayette Cemetary No. 1 in the heart of the garden district. He was quite knowledgable and interesting. We then walked around the garden district with Matthew pointing out the architectural styles... More

Our guide Ronald (a 6th generation New Orleander) was very knowledgeable in the history of the town. It was less of a ghost tour and more of a historical tour (which I didn't mind). He did sprinkle in some of the ghost stories without being cheesy or dramatic like some of the other tour guides which I witnessed. I also... More

Although we didn't see any supernatural visions, our tour guide, Dawn, was wonderful!! She knew lots of interesting facts and stories about New Orleans and was very funny. I would definitely recommend this.

If you want a walking tour that covers the history and architecture of the French Quarter, this one is for you. Ours was led by Walter, a former history professor, who made the point that this tour is the only one that is historically accurate. He was knowledgeable, interesting and informative. Those are the positives. The negatives...the voodoo portion of... More

My husband and I have been on various ghost tours around the country and this was one of the best. Our tour guide Matthew was informative, funny, and entertaining. Some ghost tour guides can be really cheesy, but not this one. We all had a blast, learning a lot of about New Orleans, and heard some amazing ghost stories. Our... More

We really enjoyed our walking tour of St. Louis Cemetery #1. Dawn, our tour guide, was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We learned a lot and had fun!
