Robert Clark "Master Story Teller' told only one ghost story on this ghost tour through the St Louis Cemetery. He was a little cheesy and told mainly historical facts about the city which we're interesting but not what I paid for. I purchased a ghost tour and this was severely lacking the ghosts. It sucked!

I see that you participated in our Cemetery tour to St. Louis #1, the oldest active cemetery in the city. That tour is NOT a Ghost Tour. It is a tour that covers a lot of New Orleans history. The cemetery tour includes our burial customs, the tomb of Voodoo Priestess Marie Laveau, Homer Plessy, and many other historical figures... More

I took this tour with a friend and our kids, ages 8, 9 and 10. I wasn't sure if it would be too scary for the kids, but there were several children in our group. We went at 6 p.m., so it was still light out, and the kids loved it. We adults loved it too. Our tour guide was... More

We took the 8 pm tour with our three kids (8,10,12) and had a fantastic time. Tess was our guide and did a great job. The kids were intrigued by the stories and still compared scariest stories the next morning! They all slept just fine! So it is safe to bring your kids. New Orleans has such a mysterious air... More

Luke did an excellent job of telling the history of the city and the cemetery. We highly recommend this tour. Wear tennis shoes and bring water/Gatorade. Great time!

Tons of history, local legend, and funny stories, our tour guide Tessi was awesome. We learned so much and had a great time. I'd been to the St Louis Cemetary before - on my own with a self-guided map, but this was so much better and worth the cost of the tour. We would do it again ... or maybe... More

I searched for tours online and saw some good reviews for this company and decided to go for it since I got a groupon. We had a humid day, with thunderstorms pending but it worked out great as the rain held off and the cloud made for awesome photos. I like that you start the tour at the tip of... More

We took the Ghosts and Vampires Tour with Thomas. I really enjoyed the tour because we learned about historical and not so current events. There are mysterious connections and of course a paranormal occurrences associated with events or areas. Most importantly it is not scary, just interesting facts with a paranormal or folklore twist.

My friends and I had Tessie for our tour guide. She was incredibly knowledgable about everything French Quarter related. Every stop we made was incredibly worth it. We were so excited to learn about buildings we had been walking past for days yet we had no idea of their gruesome past. She kept our attention the whole tour and made... More

After some not so fabulous experiences with tours we found this one on our last day. Our tour guides name was Sam and it was a great time. As a history buff I was looking for some interesting historical facts and he delivered. The tour was informative and entertaining, not boring at all!! The cemetery is beautifully eerie and definitely... More

Very disappointing! there was nothing even remotely frightening about this tour. You walk up and down the street with various stops and the guide relates a story about past ghost sightings in that building. For example one man in the 1800's lost his house in a card game he shot himself and now the restaurant on that site reports furniture... More
