We brought our kids 8 and 10 and Randy did a fantastic job making our private tour just scary enough to be fun. We learned so much and he did a great job helping us feel safe and socially distanced. Highly recommend Randy and this tour!

My first activity in New Orleans was to go on a ghost tour. Our tour guide Jonathan gave us a fun, informative tour of the many haunted places in the city. He had many extra antidotes and stories of this fascinating city. I can't wait to walk past some of these place again in the daylight.

This was a new tour - Local Guides - and our guide Anderson was so enjoyable A transplant from Minnesota he lives in the city now and is a great advocate of NOLA. Knew his stuff. Had a easygoing way about him and made it all a conversation, not a lecture. We enjoyed our time together. Highly recommend

We did the Lewd Spirits Tour on Friday evening May 22nd and it was a complete waste of time. The meeting spot is not clearly marked as a parking lot and the operators were late, so we spent 15 minutes (Since we arrived 15 minutes early as instructed) wondering if we were in the right place.

The tour never actually shows you anything, you basically walk around and she tells you a story about about a hand full of building. You never actually go inside anywhere.

The guide is clearly reading a script and she came across as though she was either high or on something. The photos she showed us were all on her phone. I could have created images that would have been more believable in 10 minutes.

We did stop at a couple of bars where we were given the option of going in and buying whatever we wanted.

I am sure our guide was a lovely person, but she was not a good tour guide. Hard to understand, she speaks too fast and she doesn’t enunciate clearly.

This tour was a complete waste of time.

Save time and money and avoid Unique Nola Tours, especially the Lewd Spirits Tour.

We take every review we receive seriously. Be it a 5 star or a 1. Sometimes a tour wasn't the right fit for the guest, and they are better off doing something else. Sometimes a one-star review is someone that doesn't tell the truth. Let me break it down since I was there at the beginning of the tour, dropping off something for one of the guides. First, your guide texted you an hour before the tour with a google maps link to the meeting location and how to find her. She was there a half-hour before the tour started. We only ask the guides to be there 20 minutes ahead because check-in starts 15 mins before the tour starts. You arrived about 8:05 with a drink in your hand and extra people. One a baby. Because the guide saw you had a baby with you, they guessed that you were on the other tour going out. You got really mad that you were not on the list for the tour. The guide asked me what to, and I held back the other tour that was leaving because everyone was on time to put you on it even though you name wasn't on the list. Before I could say that, it turned out that you booked a 21 and over tour, and you were on that list. You shouted at me, "you don't know what the F*** you are doing! I want a refund," and blah blah. I showed you that you were on the list for the Lewd Spirits Tour. You said yes, that's the tour I want and I told you that the baby couldn't go on that tour. You pleaded with me that the baby wouldn't go in the bars and they would wait outside. I calmly explained that other people were on tour, and it wasn't fair to other people that booked a 21 and over tour and there was a kid. And, offered your the other tour and let you go with your extra people for free. Your group decided that one person was going back to the hotel with the baby and that you all were going on Lewd. This was when I left, thinking the guide had will have their hands full that night. Second, your guide wasn't high or "on anything." (remember the owner was there) She reported that your group kept offering to buy her drinks, and she turned them down. Stating she wasn't a drinker, and she had to drive home after the tour. You might have understood her more if you didn't practice drinking before the tour. The photos on her phone... are pictures that guests gave her while doing tours and caught something strange. Honestly, who has time to fake pictures? Thirdly, you were on a walking tour in New Orleans. That consists of walking on the streets, stopping in front of locations, and hearing the history and story of the building. Lewd Spirits has bar stops. You went into bars. Lastly, one of your friends told the guide that it was the best tour she had taken in New Orleans when the tour was over, and you personally tipped her 20 bucks. Yes, you hated the tour so much that you tipped her. Or, you were showing off. If you ever come back to New Orleans, please do not book a tour with us. Monique

Hands down my favorite tours of NOLA (and we've been on a few)! This is not a big company/box tour place. It feels like family and they treat you so well. Dane Rhodes is just incredible (also, look him up and read what you find about him). He knows his city and provides the most informative and entertaining of tours. We did a small group "Our Favorite Ghosts" tour, but it is so much more. We also wanted to go on a Garden District tour the next morning and Dane set us up with Mikko Macchione over text afterwards. That was also a fantastic tour (Mikko is NOLA historical author along with other major work - look him up as well). We didn't get to take a tour with the owner, Monique, but she is very friendly and has a great store with unique crafts, books and such - you'll love talking with her. We will be taking one of her tours if we can next. These people are the real historians of NOLA - We heavily recommend. You won't be disappointed!

Hands-down one of the best tours. THERESA IS AMAZING!!! It is very clear that she has a genuine interest in the subject matter and it comes across in her stories. These are not just some memorized ghost stories that someone regurgitates back to you.

Theresa’s genuine interest in the subject made the tour so fun.

Make sure you request her and you will have a fun, entertaining, and informative experience.

We will definitely be requesting Theresa when we go back to New Orleans and take their Lewd ghost tour. (We took our favorite ghosts)

Sean was absolutely amazing with the depth of his knowledge on Louisiana history. It is truly a labor of love for him. He knew intimate details about the city my family has inhabited for five generations. I couldn't recommend him enough!

This was a great family friendly ghost tour. Our guide, Mikko, was very knowledgeable and also quite humorous, while keeping it fun for the kids too. Definitely recommend Unique Tours and will use again next time in NOLA.

Dalvin was excellent! We brought my parents and my 2 children (10 and 12). He was so good with my kids and made sure to interact with them on the tour and took time to answer their questions. He was extremely knowledgeable and a great guide. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend.

Really enjoyed and highly recommend the Lewd Spirits tour! Our tour guide Dane went above and beyond. We learned so much about the history of New Orleans, interesting characters of the past, and got some local recommendations. Great experience!
