Sam is the man....a self admitted history geek with lots of knowledge that he was more than willing to share with us. I've been on NO cemetery tours before but none with this depth of history. One cool thing was the cemetery keepers rushed towards us telling us we needed to move to the back of the cemetery and that... More

We did the Saints and Sinners tour. Our guide was Sandy, and she was fantastic. She knew so much history about the area. She told great stories about the debauchery of NOLA's history. She wasn't afraid to talk about those taboo subjects, which is why the tour is only for 18+. Make sure to get there early and get some... More

My boyfriend and I took the saints and sinners tour with Sandy and we loved it! We would definitely recommend this tour to others. We learned a lot about the history of new orleans. You could tell Sandy was well educated on the subject and very interesting. Don't waste your time with the disappointing voodoo bone lady tour. This one... More

Went on the St. Louis #1 cemetary tour with Luke. What a great experience. He knew so much about the history of New Orleans and really knew how to make people feel welcomed to the city. Knew the answers to all of the questions the guests had and he was loud enough to where everyone could hear, but wasn't yelling... More

My sister-in-law and I were in NOLA over Halloween weekend and decided to take the Treme tour with Emily. We are both fans of HBO's "Treme" and were anxious to see the neighborhood for ourselves. We truly enjoyed the tour and Emily's depth of knowledge about NOLA and Treme, including the Black Indian culture. This tour starts in Louis Armstrong... More

Interesting walking tour of the Treme District. Our guide, Robin is native to the area and was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of history and other interesting facts with us. Definitely worth doing.

This was our second time to take this tour this year. I had brought some friends since we had such a good speaker the first time. We were very disappointed. This speaker did not go into as much detail or story telling, There where parts of the tour she completely passed by without a word mentioned, like the stories of... More

The tour starts out at Flanagan’s Pub and as a member of the tour you can get buy one get one free Hurricanes. They are served from an igloo cooler and seem somewhat watered down at 12 dollars. The beer selection looked pretty good and that was what the locals were drinking. This was our second Halloween in New Orleans... More
