French Quarter Drunk and Haunted! ♥
Let's get lit and talk about ghosts! We will start out at a bar so everyone can get fueled up for our haunted French Quarter exploration. Drinks are not included, but there will be a total of three drink stops. We'll do a little introduction about ourselves and get to know our new drinking buddies. Then, I'll tell you about some of the most famous French Quarter hauntings: from vampires to ghosts. We'll even take pictures of a ghost that has his own table at a restaurant! You're going to leave with a much deeper understanding of the French Quarter (long as you don't have TOO many). We always have small groups, so you know you are getting a more personal experience! Halfway through, we'll conjure up some spirits (get drinks!) @ a FQ bar. After, we'll go to the famous Lalaurie Mansion! We even have a ghost meter to help us monitor paranormal activity along the way! The tour will end at Lafittes Blacksmith Shop, the oldest bar in the French Quarter, where we'll talk pirates.

Ghost Tour meets Puzzle Solving (and wine!) ♥
We're Pandora and Lynx, and for years we've been leading walking tours and sharing our passion for this city with amazing guests. We even host the top-selling experience on Airbnb! Pandora is a New Orleans native, while Lynx has been here for almost 10 years, and we're both in love with New Orleans' culture, history, and creativity. We started our company, Spectral City, in order to offer a much more intimate and high quality experience for our guests, and they've been loving it!

Now we're taking the next step. We turned part of our house into an interactive art installation featuring several "exhibits" which bring New Orleans history to vibrant life. You can even go inside the pirate ship! We wanted to create something really special and totally different from anything out there, and a few 100 hours of work later we're thrilled to say that we’ve done it! There is nothing else like this. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience ♥

And yes, there *will* be sea shanties sung by a Vam-Pirate!

Pandora and Lynx were just amazing. High energy even while explaining the history of a city, not always the easiest. Their creations and story telling made it a fun evening for all of us, and solving puzzles made it all the more captivating and engaging!...More

JuJu was amazing and fun! The smaller group allowed us to stay out of the way of the massive groups and actually hear the stories. She gave us the real history and then shared the superstitions surrounding it!
