New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,038 reviews
New Orleans is infamous for its spooky past, filled with tales of voodoo, vampires, ghosts, and witches. During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night. Plus, a centrally located meeting point makes for a hassle-free, fun evening.

Alvin Jackson is such a great guy. He is a historian with such a great heart. He will talk and share and play music from each time period. He's been there and experienced it! Support the small business. It's a gem!

I went with two musicians,a clarinettist and a violinist, so there was an added purpose for our visit. Unfortunately it was the run up to Mardi Gras and the Rock and Roll running Marathon was on that day, hence lots of road closures. The taxi got as near as he could and we walked the rest of the way. There was a hiccup over the arrangements to visit but Al made us feel welcome, and told us all about the beginnings of jazz, and then through the ages, complete with audio music of the ages he was talking about. He purchased the old and deserted Musicians Union building after Katrina, and strewn on the floor were the contracts of lots of very famous people, plus notes from the various meetings. These, he has carefully preserved with lots of other paperwork, going back through the years, which made for very interesting reading. He was happy to talk for as long as we wanted, and it was a very interesting and informative hour or two.

We were lucky enough to run across this museum during a Treme walking tour (French Quarter Phantoms). A little tour with a lot of history, information and evocative musical history to add to such a historical neighbourhood. Worth dragging yourself out of the usual New Orleans French Quarter troll to understand what you are dancing too!

Alvin Jackson leads a fun, knowledgable, and interesting tour around his intimate one-room museum that is chock full of photos, paintings, artifacts, and more. Al is a warm and engaging host who answers questions and constantly makes original connections that made me see the evolution of jazz through new eyes.

This tiny museum is full of interesting artifacts tracing the origins of jazz from Africa, the Caribbean, and Europe to the US. What makes it special, though, is Mr. Al's storytelling, and his deep knowledge of and connection to the music. We left feeling as though we had traveled through time and around the world, even though the entire experience was contained within a single room. A highlight of our trip -- highly recommended!
