We wanted a ghost tour that would take you inside actual haunted locations but unfortunately there aren't any at the moment. The tour was informative, interesting and our tour guide was fun and very theatrical. Even had a pit stop mid-way for a drink at a bar called Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop which had a great story behind it as well.... More

It is all to what you are looking for. The Ghost Tour is a walking tour where you hear about all of the old spooky legends of New Orleans. I liked our guide but it was a little dull for my taste.

We had a great tour guide named Kyle- he was very knowledgable of the city and its history. He was also very friendly and approachable. The tour was really great- it wasn't just about the spooky things that have happened in New Orleans, it also gives you some of the history about the city and its people which I loved.... More

Several people suggested this to my friends while we were planning a New Orleans getaway weekend. This tour begins at a local bar and was advertised as including "a free hurricane." When we arrived, the fine print was revealed "with each one purchased." We didn't care that much about the drinks, but that set the tone for the experience. The... More

There are several ghost tours in New Orleans, at the suggestion of our hotel we chose the greyhound walking tour that departs near the Natchez Port. I found this tour to be a huge disappointment, Stacey our tour guide knows a lot about the history of New Orleans, but her presentation was more of a school teacher then a tour... More

I was so disappointed! Immediately at the start of our tour, the guide Trevor, started his act and tried to be an actor/ comedian. Rather than tell us about the ghost story, he went on and on about his own personal beliefs, and his inappropriate anecdotes. His attempt at comedy fell very flat. 15 mins into the tour people were... More

This would have been the perfect tour on Halloween. The tickets for the tour are for sale in a bar. So you can have drinks to "get in the mood" before the tour starts. I can't recall if there was food as we ate before we got there. The tour started after dark, of course, and the guide told some... More

For 50 bucks I could of have done a lot more enjoyable stuff. Just walked around with a guy called Barry and he told stories. It wasn't even scary. He sounded like he was making lots of things up. He took 50 bucks in the beginning for two of us and then when the tour finished he was waiting for... More

This tour looks like fun and interesting on flyers and Brochures but it's a rip off !! You just walk around with appx, 20-30 People ( tourists who got ripped off like us ) around blocks for about 2 hours and you hear stories....that's it !! I love ghost stories but this tour was VERY boring. Don't waist you money.... More
