Ghost Busters

The tour itself was just the right length of time. The stories were interesting and entertaining. No ghosts on the tour, though.

My family and I enjoyed this tour very much. The guide was interesting and very entertaining. It was just the right lenght with a break in the middle. It is a great way to learn about the French Quarter architecture and history. Not exactly scary but very entertaining.

Our St.Louis Cemetery walking tour with Ernie was a very entertaining and informative exoerience. The right guide makes a difference, Ernie has a talent to deliver all that informaton in a way, that is easy is to understandand and gives you some laugh (in a good way, nothing over the top). Highly recommended!

The tour was well organised, well paced and awesome. The guide knew a lot and told stories in an engrossing way. It was a fantastic way to learn about the history and architecture of the French Quarter and New Orleans, while avoiding Bourbon street. HIGHLY recommend!

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 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.
