Sidney Smith created a series of tours highlighting the rich New Orleans history. Scandals, ghosts, vampires, crime...all the good stuff. But the focus is where it should be- on being substantive and entertaining. The walking tours take you to the places the historical events took place. The tour guides let you know the grisly details, and place them in context.... More

We hadn't been to any ghost tours so were curious as to how it's like. Our tour guide was fun and enthusiastic. There were 15+ people in our group. We strolled down the streets in French Quarter, stopped at the fronts of some buildings where she told us supposedly scary stories though not that scary for us. Sometimes we encountered... More

I love taking local tours and have taken many in New Orleans. This tour was longggg and boring. Most of out time was spent in front of buildings while the guide was going on and on telling stories. The other part od our time was getting out of the way of all the other tours going on at the same... More

I went with my boyfriend and another couple and the ghost tour was a fun way to start the evening. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny and he tailored the tour to the audience. He would spend time going into detail about things if someone from the crowd asked a question.

Our tour was so informative and fun! Michael Bell did an amazing job! If we do another tour we will definitely ask for him to do it.

It's a stretch to give this tour company two stars. The whole operation is poorly run; extremely rude folks. Although the tour guide was knowledgeable, no one liked her. Abrupt, short with guests. Some of us even left half way through the tour. Waste of time, waste of money. Try someone else.

This tour was an hour and 1/2 walking around the French Quarter area, with many stops where we would just stand for 15-20 minutes at each stop listening to very embellished, and long winded stories, with so much extra historical fiction. Completely worthless tour. Save your time and money and do something else!

We were disappointed in the tour. The stories told were fine, but very embellished. The tour guide was ok. I would not recommend.

We took this trip at the end of the day (5:00 tour) after the end of a conference we were attending. Everyone showed up early so we left out about 15 minutes early but we still got the full tour time. Our tour guide was amazing and gave us a lot of really interesting information about the French Quarter. I... More

Good tour, full of hustory and facts that are both interesting yet terrifying at the same time. Kyle is the best tour guide by the way.
