What to expect
  • Celebrate Carnival season—or any time of year—with this insider’s tour of America's most decadent and haunted city. Meet your guide in the heart of the French Quarter, and set off on a leisurely 2-hour walking tour through New Orleans culture, history, and legends. See where the world-famous Mardi Gras parade kicks off each year, and visit the locations of time-honored Carnival traditions. Along the way, learn about the city’s unique confluence of cultures, and hear stories of famous former and current residents—from pirates and prostitutes to Hollywood celebrities who have set up house in the neighborhood’s historic Creole mansions. Stand before some the most beautiful homes of the Quarter, and visit several national historic landmarks including St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, and the Old Ursuline Convent. While New Orleans is filled with mirth and celebration during Mardi Gras, a more sinister side also lurks among the storied streets. Learn how the city earned its haunted reputation as you stroll past notorious sites known for wandering spirits, ghost sightings, and vampire legends. If you like, engage in a bit of ghost hunting yourself with a provided EMF meter and paranormal detector. You might be surprised at what you find.

Best tour company in New Orleans - after attending multiple tours by this company and other companies I can guarantee it
Mar 2021 • Couples
So! We booked multiple tours with this company bc after research (the research was right!)
we learned this company is the most personable helpful considerate patient and very attentive to their guests The owner treated me like we were friends immediately, yet she knew how to also be professional. I texted Ashli (the owner and she is a tour guide too) on her personable number which is available publicly and she was spot on with all the information she provided and provided consistent assistance 24/7. She was the sweetest! She helped with information that didn’t even pertain to the tours we booked with them she helped me with everything down to dinner reservations which were all amazing btw. 😂 this tour was great fun even with covid 19 restrictions we enjoyed ourselves! I felt very lucky to have the guide and the perks with this tour bc most travellers at the time of Mardi Gras weekend weren’t even allowed to get drinks from bars. This tour provided us the perks that those other travellers didn’t receive and it made us feel like VIP’s! The tours were small which also made it more fun bc we felt important and had all the information that the tour contained plus on top of that we were able to ask questions easily. I highly recommend this company. Small businesses are always the way to go especially when you get the special attentive treatment that this company provides. Call or text Ashli and tell her Ashleigh sent you! She will be amazing I promise and provide you a tour or multiple tours if you choose to go on multiple tours that you will consider your favorite part of your trip. Thanks Ashli for making our trip so memorable. You are the best.
