Sam Woodroof was an excellent guide!

We had a group of 9 and we all really enjoyed the tour! They only take 28 people total per group, so it's easy to hear and see everything that's going on. Sam Woodroof adds his... read more

We had a group of 9 and we all really enjoyed the tour! They only take 28 people total per group, so it's easy to hear and see everything that's going on. Sam Woodroof adds his own dramatic flair to the tour and you can tell he is really knowledgeable about New Orleans history. A must see attraction!!

We enjoyed the ghost tour though the French Quarter and especially our guide, Hope -- she was enthusiastic and fun to listen to! A city as old as New Orleans has to have a lot of dark history, and we were shown the buildings and told the stories of some of the interesting places in the French Quarter. We wanted... More

Great way to learn some history of the oldest continuous use cemetery in the US. Blaise was really good at her job. Thanks!

We lucked out with a travelzoo deal for this, but it was definitely worth it even at full price. We had Robin as our guide and she was fantastic! Super funny and really informative about the history and culture of NOLA. We started with a drink at the Voodoo lounge where we initially met up ($12 for 2 good sized... More

I have taken many tours and have mixed reviews for many of them. I will say I was not really hoping for much after taking a different company's ghost walking tour the night before and walking out before it ended. I had seen dozens and dozens of tours crowding the French Quarter and did not really expect too much but... More

This was such an awesome tour, packed full of history. What made it such an awesome tour, was the guide-Sandy. Her abundance of New Orleans knowledge and humor made the tour memorable. If you have to take a tour, ask for SANDY!!!

I researched a few ghost tours on Tripadvisor and this one seemed to have the most positive feedback. We bought the tickets from a nice agent on Bourbon street the same day and met promptly at 7:30 that night at the Voodoo Lounge ( a little confusing because it's also called Flannigans lol). Two for one hurricanes till 8 when... More

This was a really great tour and you don't just learn the history of the cemetery but of the city as a whole. We had Philip as our tour guide and he was amazing! He seemed to genuinely love and respect New Orleans and that really came across and made me want to learn more about the city too! He... More

This as my first time to the city and I'm happy we took the time (and ticket price) to learn more about the darker history of New Orleans, "the most hunted city in the United States." As a disappointed (and drunk) gentleman learned seemingly too late, this is NOT a "haunted house" event like you would do at Halloween. Rather,... More

Everything you could ask for on a walking tour like this one.Our guide, Hope, was excellent. She told her stories very well, and had a great sense of humour. I did some reading on some of the stories later, and found that, rather than sensationalizing, she actually stuck to the primary sources. This was a very entertaining and informative walking...
