Review of: Undead Tour
During my tour, Christie (guide) desplayed a depth of knowledge and high enthusiasm for all of the haunted sites we visited in the French Quarter. At every stop she gave a in-depth and comprehensive explanation of the building's history and signifigance, going into details of

I'll start by saying we booked our tours based on positive online reviews. These couldn't be further from our experience. We recently completed 2 tours; Revenants and Spirits and Morbid Curiosity. We were a group of 8 for the first and a group of 6 for the second. We were less

Response from Ann F, Manager at Dark Crescent Tours
Responded Feb 18, 2020
I’m so sorry to hear that you were disappointed in both of your experiences with our company. I wish that you had reached out to explain what you were less than pleased with on the Revenants tour, so that we could make sure the Morbid Curiosity tour had the content you were interested in. I must say that I am a bit confused as to why you would book a second tour with a company you were disappointed with. I will follow up your tour guide to try to understand what went wrong. I appreciate your feedback and would like to offer a free tour for you and as many guests as you want (up to 28) next time you are in town.

We lucked out and ended up with a private tour with Christie! She was great, informative and passionate, you can tell she loved what she does! The bar we met at refused to serve us as we only had our Canadian drivers licences and not our passport, the bartender claim it was
