I was leery about the idea of a ghost tour but this was the last night of a 20th anniversary trip and we decided to round out the vacation by taking a chance. Andy was a font of knowledge, intelligent, articulate and passionate about the history of New Orleans. What an antidote to the cheesy sideshow "Voodoo Tours" taking place... 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

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
