Thomas was our guide and he is a great storyteller. The ghost and vampire tour was entertaining and informative. Book this tour when you are in town.

Highly recommend the cemetery tour of St. Louis #1. Miss Tessy was our guide and she was great! She knows her history and knows how to tell a story. Look for Groupon discount. We want to return to take a Ghost Tour next time we are in NOLA!

We had Thomas Webb for both the Ghost and Vampire tour and the True Crime tour. His story telling style kept us entertained, his wit made us laugh and the sights he took us to were all interesting. He was more than accommodating to all our questions and comments. I highly recommend.

We went on 3 tours with this company and they were all wonderful. Trevor is amazing, knowledgable, and entertaining, as well is Thomas. Tours -- Cemetery Tours, Ghost & Vampire, and True Crime. I wouldn't recommend the True Crime for kids under 16. It is a little risqué.

We took the 8:00 pm Ghost and Vampire Tour. It's best after dark! What a fun tour, so informative and entertaining! Thomas is brilliant!!! We were sorry we weren't in NOLA long enough to take his True Crime Tour also. Given the topic of New Orleans and chilling ghost encounters he had the entire group enthralled, though I am pretty...

We really enjoyed the guided tour of St. Louis cemetery #1. Our tour guide Tessie was entertaining and informative, as well as professional. While we could have seen the cemetery on our own, we wouldn't have known what we were looking at or the history behind it. There were several other tours inside the cemetery at the same time, and...

There is absolutely nothing better than a tour guide who is not only knowledgeable, but obviously interested in what they have to tell you. The Cemetery Tour with Robert/Bob as our tour guide was a wonderful experience. You always run the risk of having someone who is so over-the-top and theatrical that it borders on cheesy, but he struck a... More

This was the absolute highlight of my trip to New Orleans with my family. I couldn't have been happier with the tour. Now, to hear this review coming from a picky seventeen year old girl, that's something to be proud of. I can't help but mention our tour guide, Phillip. After all, this magical night wouldn't have even been possible... More

First off, Flanagan's Pub, where the box office is located, has great food and BOGO Hurricanes for tour guests. Awesome. Our tour guide, Luke, was entertaining and informative. We had a great time and appreciate the great value!

We had Robert a transplanted upstate New Yorker with a friendly manner and a knack for telling a story. He was good with people. A lady tried to join the tour without paying and he ended up chatting with her and she left smiling with one of his business cards. With someone else it could have been a more confrontational...
