About Jonathan Weiss Dark History Tours
Join me in a stroll through the dark streets of one of the United States' most haunted and horrific cities! We'll wander past places where the dead still linger, and you'll learn of their lives and the tragic circumstances of their deaths. You'll be taken into the oldest end of the city, to hear the legends of the Vampires of New Orleans, their folklore and the strange murders and disappearances unsolved to this day! Private tours can be easily done, and with a private tour the number of stops, location of pickup and specific subject matter may all be customized.

We loved this tour. We learned so much about the history of the city and loved hearing the stories about the ghosts. I would go again the next time I visit because there's so much information its hard to take it all in at once.

I have taken two tours with Jonathan Weiss Tours. You can't get better value for your money, Jonathan is knowledgable, offers several different styles of tours and that focus on different aspects of the city's history. He is calm, flexible and very open to taking questions.
