My friend got sick the day before the tour. We contacted bloody mary about our situation and she was very understanding. She gave us a full refund and invited us back the next time we came back to New Orleans. So even though we didn't go on the tour, we had a wonderful experience with her.

The tour was way better that I expected. I went into the tour thinking it was going to be more of an attempt to scare us. It was not that. In this tour you learn a lot about New Orleans and its history that you never heard about. Our tour guide Gina was great. I would definately recommend this tour.

Took the back O town tour. Pretty good, Mary was very knowledgeable and took us to St. Louis 1,2, treme and Louis Armstrong park where we made voodoo dolls! Only downside was it was pretty expensive - $69 usd, then again she does drive you around.

Good luck with that but if your looking for good stories, excellent tour of the city and it's lush history, Mary is your girl. From the old Inn where the tour begins she draws you in with story after story of who lived where and when. The evil things they were suspected of doing and the promise that their spirits... More

The meeting location was cool and creepy (lafiettes blacksmith bar) but the tour itself was boring and there were so many other groups out doing the exact same thing. I left early.

We recently booked a Bloody Mary ghost tour in New Orleans. We were all business associates (EO Retreat) and needed to fit a specific itinerary, so we opted for the private tour. A variation on their Haunted Pub Crawl. We were lucky enough to secure Bloody Mary herself. What an amazing storyteller. A variety of historical, voodoo and haunted tales... More

A friend and I traveled to new Orleans and took this tour, in the pouring rain. It was great, despite the weather. Mary was a great guide and being a ghost hunter myself, enjoyed the cemetery part of the tour greatly as well as seeing her amazing home. Take this tour if you like doing more then walk the beautiful... More

We did the haunted pub tour. Started at Lafitte's bar... This bar had lots of character. Our tour guide was very informative and funny. We stopped at several bars along the way, to get the history lesson, a bath room stop and a drink. This is a must do. Also received a lesson on VooDoo and HooDoo... Fascinating!!! I would... More

Outr tour guide was Gina who was very knowledgable and pleasant to be around. She was born and raised in New Orleans and she knows it... More

I hoped more for a historical background of voodoo and Marie Laveau. I should've used google and would have learned more about the history of the grave yards and graves we visited. I could've saved myself $138. The tour guides should focus more on being more informative. Don't assume we know the people you are talking about. I should've followed... More
