    Fun!
    Delvin was great, super animated and kind. Would definitely come again! I’m a big horror fan so I loved hearing the history and stories, but it wasn’t so scary that I’ll have to sleep with the lights on tonight, haha!

    Garden district tour
    Our tour guide was Dane. He was very informative and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our tour very much. The garden district is beautiful and is a must if you are visiting New Orleans. This was our first time touring this area and so glad we did.

    Do your homework before booking.
    We found our tour guide detached, there were long periods of silence as we walked from location to location. There were 5 ghost stories over 3 bar visits. Looking back, we are not sure it was worth our time.

    Walking tour of New Orleans
    Princess Aurora is the absolute best! Please ask for her. It was a random weds night, but she made the group enjoy our time, and was personable the entire night.

    Elaina is the best! Don't pass on this experience!
    Elaina, our incredible tour guide, led us through the beautiful French Quarter while telling us spooky (plus a little naughty) stories to my Bach party. We had an amazing time and could not recommend the experience and Elaina enough. Amazing history, and great bar stops as well! Didn't have one bad drink. 1000/10

Our tour guide Sean was awesome! you could really tell that he loved what he does as he knew all about the murders/crimes that took place in New Orleans. We got lucky as no one else was on our tour so we got to pick at Sean's brain with all our questions. He was quite funny and took the time at the end to recommend us his favorite restaurants in the area. 9/29-10/3

“Unique NOLA Tours” is unique in the best of ways. My tour was phenomenal.

I’ve taken a lotta night tours/ghost tours/spooky tours and this may have been my fav. David was a five star tour guide in a way that can’t be faked. His depth of knowledge, compassion, and understanding of this sometimes macabre subject matter can’t be taught. It comes from decades of loving a city, living the city to the fullest, and then a genuine desire to unfold the city’s stories to travelers.

I felt safe and respected and heard new-to-me tales that I wished could go on forever. All without costumes and face paint and the pomp and circumstance of many tour guides/tour companies. This was real, and exactly what I’d hoped for and more.

The company owner was delightful and kind, the meeting point and tour details were easily accessible and well communicated, and David was top notch. This globetrotter uses reviews to pick stuff all the time but I’ve never once slowed down enough to leave a review myself.

Until today.

Thank you to this company and those who make it possible.

What a great review! Thank you so much. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your time with David. All our guides are unique in their ways, and I am proud to have them all on my team. We do not believe in dressing up in costumes for our tours. (only for Halloween and Mardi Gras) That a good tour guide doesn't need them. We thrive on being the highlight of someone's vacation.

This tour was awesome! Randy was an incredible tour guide. He was so enthusiastic and engaging, and entertained us while also being very knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans. Would definitely recommend going and asking for Randy as your guide!

David was funny, engaging and clearly knew what he was talking about. One of the best tour guides I've ever had on any specialty tour in any city. I recommend you do the latest slot so that the sunsets just as the tour is starting for extra spookiness!

We ended up in a private tour with just our family. Randy Randy was our special tour guide and made all the difference in the world! He had a great story telling style, and helped to bring some of the grisly local tales to life. A great way to spend my daughter’s birthday trip!

Randy was our tour guide and did a fabulous job! He was fun and animated - very knowledgeable and made the gruesome stories come to life. He was concerned about making sure everyone was safe along the route while having a great time. There were lots of jokes along the way, plus time for questions. I highly recommend this tour and am so glad that we signed up for it! Definitely not your typical tour - it was loads of fun!!

I went on a tour tonight with Randy Randy. He was amazing! As someone who has gone on numerous tours in New Orleans, I feel like for the first time, I had someone that separated the urban Legends from the truth. He gave accounts that were fun and animated, was an absolute joy to speak with, and it was a pleasure to go on a tour with someone who so obviously loves the city history and his job. He even went over a murder that I heard about as a child on a ghost tour that I could not find any information on until today, thanks to Randy. He more than exceeded my expectations. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give him 100, because it was 10 times better than expected. Thank you, Randy!

It was a great tour and different from all the "ghost" tours that flood the New Orleans area. Our tour guide, Randy was awesome. He was entertaining and informative - telling us the legend and the myth, and then telling us what really happened. If you like in-depth stories about murder and mayhem, then this is the walking tour for you.

Our tour guide David was an incredible storyteller and I was fascinated by every tale he chose. This was also an excellent way to find your way through the French quarter to see important historical buildings. I could not recommend this tour enough.

We did our 5PM tour last night and it was absolutely brilliant. Really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend! There was a few no shows on the tour so it ended up being just 3 of us on the tour and it was still delivered exceptionally. If anything it actually made it better as it was a bit more personal / 1 to 1.

A huge special thumbs up to our tour guide RANDY who was top class at his job and provided us with such a great experience! Thanks!
