New Orleans Small-Group Haunted History Carriage Tour

This New Orleans French Quarter haunted history tour sets itself apart from others like it by getting you off your feet and into an old-time, mule-drawn carriage during one of the spookiest times of day: nighttime. Pass by haunted hot spots such as the LaLaurie Mansion, and listen to twisted tales of dark magic, ghosts, and pure evil. With three tour times to choose from, it’s easy to add to your New Orleans itinerary.

The carriage tour was a lot of fun! I'm not very in to "haunted" attractions but my friend wanted to do one and I'm glad this is the one we landed on! The tour guide was exceptional and did a great job of teaching some of the history of the French Quarter and giving some spooky tales. The mules are very smart and the ride feels very safe. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip! Make sure you book online early in case tours are sold out. Tips not required but I'm sure they are appreciated, so bring side cash. Ride with the mule "Footloose" if you can.

We took a carriage ride in New Orleans while visiting the other day, and we had a great time. Mark was our carriage driver/tour guide. He was the perfect mix of knowledgeable and funny. We had a blast, and learned a lot about the area. Also, kudos to Cole the mule for his part in our adventure. If you go to NOLA, take the time to go on a carriage ride. You will be happy you did. If you are real lucky, You will ride with Mark.

This tour was just perfect! The guide was informative and friendly. I had made the reservation several months prior to my trip to NOLA, and the communication before the tour and directions to find the location when I arrived were excellent. I highly recommend this company.
