If you're looking for a spooky or very factual ghost tour this isn't the tour for you however, if you're to be thoroughly entertained I cannot recommend this enough. My tour guide was Robi and he was sensational, from his fan flicking (he has a fan that he uses for dramatic effect) to him declaring "c'est bon" when he was... More

We did the Garden District Tour with Denver Mullican, and it was the highlight of the trip! I was a history major in college, so it was a real pleasure to hear Denver's thoroughly researched tour information on the Garden District and New Orleans history as well as his experiences restoring cemeteries and participating in local historical societies - he...

So I have to be honest the tour itself was not very spooky nor creepy nor scary. Yes they talked about several hauntings but nothing too out of the ordinary, however, the tour guides stole the show here. I understand that this is their job but the knowledge they presented and charisma they projected was second to none! I highly... More

I went on two tours- the Voodoo tour and the Ghost tour. The staff is overqualified for providing incredibly fascinating tours. Not only do you learn about the topic, but you get to explore different parts of the city on a nice group. I recommend both tours as a way to learn more about unique and important elements of New...

Went today and the tour was fab..Matthew our tour guide was friendly knowledgeable and organised. No fee up front but thoroughly deserved the $25 each we paid him. (After all he us saving for a $7000000 House in the Garden District ; -) the tour was informative some facinating facts about the cemetery. I would thoroughly recommend this company, even... More

Did the Garden district walking tour. Sarah was absolutely amazing. She's so funny and honestly loves her work. Her knowledge of the area is so extensive and her personality is just infectious. I also just remembered that I forgot to tip, but I know she won't have minded because she evidently loves giving tours so much, and wants everyone to... More

Went on the voodoo tour and Robi was our tour guide. He was great in explaining the history of voodoo and how it is a religion. Can highly recommend this tour, it is worth it.

We participated in the French Quarter tour on August 23. It was a extremely hot and humid afternoon, and our guide took pains to make sure every "talking stop" was located in enough shade for the entire group. I am sorry to say I did not get his name, but he was from New Orleans originally, and was extremely knowledgeable!... More

This tour is truly a worthwhile experience. We did the Garden District and Lafayette Cemetary tour on Saturday morning. I received an email from our tour guide, Kat, in the morning reminding us where to meet. She was there, with her orange backpack, and checked us off the list. Kat is very knowledgeable about the cemetary and Garden District, and... More
