Along the way, pop into local bars for to-go drinks that you can bring along with you.

Highlights
  • Learn the stories behind historic landmarks in the French Quarter
  • Try your hand at ghost hunting using real paranormal-scouting equipment
  • Get drinks (own expense) at local bars chosen by your guide along the way
What to expect
Meet your guide at the time chosen at checkout in the Vieux Carre, also known as the French Quarter and one of America's oldest and most atmospheric neighborhoods. Stroll past Creole mansions and historic landmarks such as St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square and the spot where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803. The French Quarter is also known for its high density of bars, so stop in at several watering holes to purchase drinks (own expense) that you can take with you, thanks to the city's liberal open-container laws. Delve into New Orleans’ darker history as your guide shares tales of vampires, ghosts, and voodoo ceremonies. Visit an allegedly haunted house and try out equipment used by real paranormal investigators, including an EFM meter. The tour ends at the departure point. If you prefer a more personal experience, upgrade to a private tour.

Exceptional! Wendy Darling was an exceptional guide. We were here fie a birthday weekend with friends. Wendy made our trip that much more fun by joining the group fun... celebrating with us. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave us recommendations for things to do the rest of the weekend that normal tourists would not know about. We feel fortunate to have done this at the beginning of the trip as we could take advantage of all that we learned on the tour. Do not miss this tour !!! Fun...informative and a great way to start your trip!!

We attended the darkness tour the night before and it was awesome. We decided that since this company created the New Orleans Drunk History Tour we should definitely attend it so we booked it the for following day. We had a BLAST!! These guys know what they are doing when it comes to accommodating and providing the best service. Don’t go on an imitation tour go on the best one! I highly recommend this company.

Customer service is top notch
Tours are nothing less than the best.

Cody, our guide, was awesome and the tour was a highlight of our New Orleans trip. He was an awesome story teller, he was very engaged in the group and our experience, and he even individually connected with many of us to see if we had questions and our thoughts on the tour. Stopping at bars throughout added a little extra enjoyment to the tour as well. :) I definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in something both educational, fun, and a bit boozy!

Tour started a little rough but smoothed out after second beer. Charles is very knowledgeable and entertaining. Good way to hit some off-the-beaten-path bars and learn about NOLA history.

We had the best time on our tour!! We all highly recommend Maddie! We did this tour for my sister’s bachelorette party and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Our guide quickly picked up that we love random facts and learning stuff that only a local would know. She knew exactly what all we would want to hear about. She knew the perfect times and places to stop for drinks. I’m going to recommend this tour to anyone who goes to New Orleans!!

TOOOO MUCH FUN!
We went on the tour the weekend after Hurricane Ida. Our tour was Sept 4th 2021. If we had listened to the news channels I wouldn’t have went- GLAD I FOLLOWED my instincts. I spoke with the owner of the tour company and she said we could reschedule or attend the tour bc it would be operating, it was up to us, she is very accommodating. After talking to a few different business we decided to go and low and behold we arrived and we had a blast the entire time. This tour The Drunk History Tour was most definitely my favorite activity during our visit in the city. The French Quarter was full of fun and entertainment as usual. I see now that New Orleans was no where near the damage the news claimed. The actual damage for the hurricane was much further south west in the Houma, Louisiana area and my prayers go out to those residents but it’s a good distance from Nola. New Orleans politics looking for fema money ??? I think so! Because it was not at all damaged from what I saw. Don’t let the news scare you Nola is perfectly fine businesses are booming and tourists are enjoying themselves. Madison was a great tour guide. She was energetic, knowledgeable and insisted on providing us with all the drink stops we wanted all the while gifting us with some dark history, the scoop on the voodoo side and even supernatural - paranormal stories. We had a ghost detector to use during the tour and that was a lot of fun as well. The tour guide informed us - the more you drink the better chances of seeing a ghost ... she is right!! Hands down the best tour offered in the city of New Orleans, we can’t wait to attend another tour this company offers soon.

We absolutely appreciate this review because a few guests with reservations (even as far as October 🤷🏼‍♀️) argued with us demanding a refund regardless of the non refundable tickets. What’s funny is it was only a few guests and the majority of all guests with reservations showed up without issue and enjoyed themselves during their trip and tour. The news is ugh lol so misleading but if the guests had just listened to me and other businesses like you mentioned this wouldn’t have been an issue! If it had been unsafe we would not have operated these tours! After all, not only do I absolutely care about our guests safety but heck this is a family owned and operated business- my family operate all the tours! Why on earth would I ever put myself, my spouse or adult children in danger. Makes absolutely no sense. We canceled for a few days but by the weekend after the tour as you saw everything was popping in the French Quarter. I explained that it was completely fine in the French Quarter to any guest that contacted us 🤷🏼‍♀️ I also have time stamped photos from every single tour given by our company (that is a regular thing we do) but you can see that everything is fine in Nola I am so happy to hear that y’all enjoyed the tour. Looking forward to seeing y’all again soon. If you have time you can also add your experience with the one other tour you attended with us. I’m not sure if you were unaware but you can give reviews for more than one tour … whichever ones you attended. THANKS AGAIN Y’all are the best 🥂🥂🥂 We appreciate yours business -Ashli

A must see and do experience while in NOLA. Book and request Cody. The New Orleans Drunk History Tour was the highlight of our trip! Cody was phenomenal and his story telling skills combined with facts and knowledge made this a grade A experience. My only complaint— the next day the corners of my mouth hurt from laughing and smiling all night long!

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This is a great “welcome to NOLA” tour. Coty is an incredible tour guide. Be warned though…the stories of the LaLaurie Mansion are not for the faint of heart. A lady *literally* passed out in front of the mansion.

Highly recommended! A friend suggested this tour and I thought why not! I’m so happy I booked and took his advice. This is by far the Best tour I have been on and that includes tours that I attended over many years in multiple countries, as I travel frequently for work and play. Tour was entertaining and informative. I didn’t expect to learn so much info while having so much fun at the same time. Drinks are always a plus the bars we stopped at were great I would have missed out on some awesome locations if not for the tour and the paranormal equipment was a total hoot. So much fun! Don’t miss out on this experience!
