Amazing tour & guide
My fiancé & I were going to choose another tour but decided last minute to take this one & it did NOT disappoint. Our guide was Christian, he went above & beyond with this experience. He was extremely knowledgeable & captivating, at no point did he lose our attention. He dealt with interruptions amazingly (a second line coming down the street) & talked over the loudness of the city with ease. He is also a New Orleans native, which was very nice as he knew all about the city! I would 100% recommend this tour over all of the others! Christian is the best!

Michael was a great tour guide
Dec 2021 • Couples
We had our tour with Michael and it was absolutely phenomenal! As an avid liver of all thing true crime, he did the tour justice. He didn’t stray from the facts and gave everything you could expect as a lover of true crime; all the facts and real life accounts of the spooky history of NOLA, no bull! If you want a true walk thru the history of New Orleans and it’s morbid history, Michael is the tour guide for you!

Michael is your Guide
Dec 2021 • Friends
Michael was an absolute delight of a guide. Much more informative than most tours and provided such quality humor throughout the tour and made it a personable experience. Can not recommend him enough. Anyone thinking of booking a tour, make sure Michael is your you.

Great Tour
Nov 2021
We had a great time on Christian's Killers and Thrillers tour! He was informative, funny and engaging, without being cheesy or over-dramatizing any of the stories. The truth was more than scary enough :) A great experience to learn more about some of the recent and historical murders in the French Quarter!

Crime Junkie Approved
Nov 2021 • Couples
I love true crime so I went with the killers and thriller tour with Christian as our guide. It was really cool way to spend a couple of hours at night hearing spooky tales. Christian did a really good job and had us spooked out and talking about his stories all night! I recommend this for any crime junkie out there looking for a ghost/spooky tour at night. You “never know” what you’re gonna miss if you don’t take the chance!

Tour with Michael!
Michael was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. However, we could have avoided some of the time walking if we wouldn't have backtracked a few times, particularly at first. Towards the end of our tour it was hard to hear some of the things that Michael said due to the large number of different groups that were going on at the same time on the street corners and in between. I would recommend Michael!

New Orleans’ Homicidal History
Nov 2021 • Couples
We were hoping we would have a good guide for this tour and we were not disappointed. Michael was outstanding. His background as an instructor, veteran and longtime resident of New Orleans contributed to his expertise on the subject matter. He was knowledgeable about the subject matter and was able to debunk some of the ghost stories that are told by other ghost guides. He did include some stories about possible paranormal activity at a couple sites but otherwise delivered a believable presentation about a half dozen of the French Quarter’s more notable killers. He also made sure our dog Toby stayed engaged during the tour.

Christian was fab and the tour was spooky good!
Nov 2021
We had Christian ("like the religion") as our tour guide and he was great, it was like a perfect mix of history and scary -true- stories. He was an excellent storyteller and really had us enthralled from the start. A ghost/crime tour was something I really wanted to do while I was in NOLA and I was afraid my bf would be kind of uninterested being dragged along but he said that it was one of the highlights of the trip and I think I'll even be able to get him hooked on some of my true crime podcasts now (so thanks for that as well!). Overall it was really fun, really interesting, and I really recommend it.

Must Do in the French Quarter
Nov 2021 • Friends
This was awesome! I thought it’d be cheesy since I see so many tourist groups doing it but it was actually quite thrilling, interesting and very SCARY stories. It was definitely made better by having a rad tour guide, Christian, who totally fit the gothic tour guide vibe and added to the effect. He was funny and charismatic, and made it so enjoyable. Would do it again for sure when I’m in town!

Great mother/ daughter outing.
Elaine did a great job! It was fun informative and she answered all our questions. It was great for adults as she gave great detail without being overly gruesome. Super fun.
