My cousin and I decided to take the Cemetery/Voodoo History Tour because we had heard it was the safest way to visit a cemetery in New Orleans. That said, when were in the cemetery, there were people everywhere! So it would have been safe either way. When we met to take the tour, there were 40 people waiting, so two... More

We had a native from New Orleans give the tour. He was very friendly and inciteful. He brought the French Quarter to life telling us many interesting stories and background information. The walk was slow and easy.

We went on this tour since it was recommended to us. We're so glad we went since we were there for only one day. The tour of Lafayette Cemetary #1 and the architecture walk around the neighborhood was awesome. We learned a lot about the city in two hours. The group was small and we all could hear everything the... More

The Haunted Tour of the French Quarter was awesome! Denise was our guide & she did an excellent job. Her story telling was captivating! I highly recommend this tour.

We were disappointed. This tour was not worth the $20/person we spent on it. The company's web site describes the Voodoo portion of this 2-hour tour this way: "Using Marie Laveau's tomb as a point of departure, venture into the mysteries of Voodoo, exploring the realities and myths of this curious phenomenon. Learn about its ancient West African religious basis... More

We recently took the two hour French Quarter tour, and it was fantastic. Dave Roberts was so enthusiastic, and he interjected a number of vignettes that made it even more fun. If we hadn't been leaving early the next day, we definitely would have signed up for another tour. Something to look forward to next time!

Muriel was a nice person, but not suitable as a guide. She was unexcited and didn't really answer our questions. There were long periods of quiet time. When we were asking questions we were told she'll cover it later, which didn't happen or told us she doesn't remember. I was kinda jealous on all the other tours I saw around... More

Randy was a delightful guide and put effort into making the tour special and enjoyable. He was knowledgeable, amiable, and entertaining. I picked up some good trivia. Point of clarification: there are no complimentary cocktails on this tour, you pay for all cocktails. In sum, I recommend, especially if you are going to be spending a lot of time in... More

This is a rain or shine tour. It happened to be raining and 50 degrees for our tour, and we went anyway. It was great! Lots of walking and fun facts along the way! Knowledgable and friendly tour guide. Our guide also does the architectural tour, so he shared many facts about the buildings we saw along our walk toward... More

We really enjoyed our tour, especially since our tour guide Dave was so knowledgable and passionate about this city. We learned a lot about voodoo culture and misconceptions as well as gaining a crash course in New Orleans history. Well worth the money, to get a sense of the people and geography.
