It was enjoyable. Understand you are paying for a person who is performing...you walk to various areas and hear stories. She did speak very quickly so you had to really listen. I like that these tours are less crowded than others so more opportunity to hear and ask questions if needed. We had a break at a bar at one point with Voodoo drinks...they are purple, very sweet and an artificial grape flavor. Not my favorite. However, they also gave us a 2-for-1 deal on Hurricanes at Finnegan's Easy bar, which were very good.

I had planned this walking tour for my son’s 20th birthday. It met all of my expectations And then even more! Our tour guide Ariadne was not only a knowledgeable historian, she was also a delightful storyteller. To witness her style of storytelling brought the reality of the history she told to the present. I could really tell she loves what she is doing as a tour guide. My son and his friend who came with us on the tour expressed their sincere enjoyment of the tour. I would especially recommend Ariadne as a tour guide for other people wishing to have this experience. It’s one of a lifetime.

My bridesmaids and I decided to do a spooky Haunted History Ghost Tour for my bachelorette this October. All I can say, is that Ariadne Blayde, our tour guide, was absolutely incredible!! She made the experience so worth it and we were mesmerized by her! Not only was she incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the French Quarter but also she knew just how to share spooky tales about the ghosts that lived there. We had a group of about 20 and we were all captivated by her. She knew exactly how to make the hairs stand up on the back of our necks in a spine chilling way, even in 80 degree temps + humidity.

Genuinely, she made this experience so special. She was so put together and communicative and attentive. Everyone was able to participate and everyone was able to hear her at all times. She also kept everyone safe and together, which I really appreciated when being in the French Quarter late at night. My friends and I talked about the stories for hours after wards, it was so much fun.

I would 100000% recommend this tour because of our experience having her as a guide.

Our guide Lex was the most AMAZING and INFORMATIVE guide I've ever had on a ghost tour. My family and I take a ghost tour in every city we visit, and this hands down is number 1 on our list. She was funny, and she projected her voice well even when cars and blaring music was all around us. She kept making sure that group was with her and even in times where things felt uneasy with some of the surrounding people, she made our group feel safe. I don't write reviews often, but she was just exceptional, if you go on this tour ask for her specifically. It was worth every cent!

Ariadne was an awesome tour guide. Just the right mix of singer, actress, and comedian with a good amount of levity where the stories required it... We heard a lot of the same histories on various tours through the city, but each guide had their own experiences to add about each location which made the stories fresh each time. The locations we were shown were perfect for the theme of the tour. Take lots of pictures and review them carefully afterwards!!!

Tour was very entertaining James our tour guide provided a great experience. He was undaunted by the hair that was chronically in his eyes. His red dice earrings swayed majestically in the breeze as he closed his eyes and took a deep breath before relaying the often unfortunate past people and events of the quarter. If you are worried about safety fear not James would from time to time adopt the Connor Mcgreggor billy strut ensuring that any potential baddies were frightened away. Tour left on time had one short break for restroom/refreshments. 5*’s would walk the quarter with James again.

Great tour and discussion of not just the haunted locations, but the history involved in the city for each time period. Ariadne did a fantastic job of engaging everyone, answering questions, and keeping things entertaining.

Tour lasts about two hours of mixed walking and standing along city sidewalks, with a pause halfway through for any break or refreshments required.

We actually went on two tours with Haunted History. They were both ok, and the tour with a guide is the only way we really felt comfortable exploring the city after dark. Both tours we left early, as many of our fellow tour families did. The hosts were engaging and know a lot about the city.

We took this tour on 3/19/21; our tour guide was Patrice. She was very knowledgeable and it was obvious she does her research! Friday night in the French Quarter was crazy with every street being packed with tourists and other tours. Patrice was cool, calm, collected and was very nice about explaining how the tours work when strangers would try to join without having paid. She was cool about answering questions from me at breaks: I am a local and was excited to learn so much new information. I will definitely request her next time!!!!

This was the WORST experience we had in New Orleans. We signed up for a ghost tour with a pretty big group that included a few kids. We unfortunately had the worlds worst tour guide who said his name was James. We could tell right away from his shaking and sniffing that something was off with him. He spent the first 30 minutes talking about his religious beliefs. Which was fine but not what we were there for. Then he yelled at our kids and called them spoiled brats for not being quiet for one of his stories and called us all terrible parents. That’s when we said fine we were done and wanted to speak with his boss and he threw a huge fit and started yelling at random people in the street. This was an awful experience that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Thank you for review. I have already responded to another member of your party regarding this situation. While this situation could certainly have been handled better by your tour guide, it is very difficult for ANY tour guide to conduct a 2 hour tour presentation when there are unruly, unsupervised children on the tour. I am sorry that you had an unpleasant experience and as you know, we have already communicated with you privately and have issued you a refund for the tour. Additionally I am more than happy to send you a complimentary copy of our best selling book, 'New Orleans Ghosts, Voodoo, & Vampires'. Simply contact me with a mailing address. We always want (and expect) everyone to leave our tours having had a great experience. And if that doesn't happen, we haven't done our job. Again, thank you for your comments.
