The only interesting part of this tour was Lafitte's where we started... And you can go there for free. I rarely ever write a bad review but this one took the cake for me. After meeting at Lafitte's we drove around the quarter for 15 mins and listened to a half decent story. We then were taken out to traipse... More

Mary is it! This isn't just a tour for her, this is what she truly believes and loves. We saw so much of New Orleans, visited the cemeteries and got a thorough tour of them. Learned so much about the true Voodoo. For young kids it can be a bit boring, but being able to run around in the cemetery... More

Do not waste money on this tour. It started of promising and then went into a different realm of nuts. Blacksmith shop was cool. We went into the woods to take pictures of orbs. Ok. Then into a cemetery. Ok. Then to the guides voodoo set up House where she left us in the dark to beat on some drums.... More

Just finished the driving tour on 2/15/2015 with the Queen of NOLA herself, Bloody Mary, and once again we had a wonderful time. She took us to several very interesting places and she gave us tons of information and insights to the real NOLA and it's fascinating history. The tour finished at her house which is an incredible place. I... More

Last night we took this tour and were wowed by the great stories the guide shared with us. She kept the tour moving and very interesting with her stories and information. This tour is worth it even if you don't like "tours" because you get so much background details. It was a lot of fun and we had a great... More

Our eveneing tour of New Orleans was guided by a local woman, who was raised in New Orleans, attended Catholic School in the areas we visited, and had first-hand familiarity with the stories about the haunted and paranormal places we visited. What made it even more interesting was her own involvment in the Voodoo religion. I realize this may seem... More

I booked the Pub Tour with 2 friends and we went to meet the tour group at Lafitte's Blacksmith Bar. I don't know HOW we missed the tour (and how they missed us), but we ended up leaving the bar (and wandering over to the Lalaurie House) once it became apparent that we'd missed the boat somehow. When I contacted... More

I was expecting a ghost tour with the history of prior residents being described in a dramatic way. This tour was more for the serious orb chasers, We made three stops if you don't count the meeting place at Laffit's Blacksmith Shop. The first was a trail in the City Park where we walked in the dark taking pictures to... More
