There is so much history and culture here, it is the perfect environment for a good ghost story. I definitely recommend the Myrtles Plantation.

I went to New Orleans for a friend's bachelorette weekend, and we had to do a ghost tour. This one was recommended to us, and it was very good. Our guide was very dramatic and animated, which was entertaining, and I still remember some of the stories. This is not like a haunted house, where people jump out and you scream. It's a historical tour that points out different locations and the stories of what happened there, along with the alleged sightings that occur. They encourage you to take photos in case you might capture a spirit, but we didn't catch any... Note that it doesn't end where it began, but it's not hard to find your way back. Definitely wear comfortable shoes, since it is a 2-hour tour. They make one stop at the oldest bar in the city, but the toilets had a long line due to a clog, so be sure to go before you start the tour!

We had a great time with George our tour guide. He was very personable and knowledgeable about all the areas of the French Quarter. He was very honest about some of the "B.S" stories you hear about the Quarter from other sources. I was happy we did this tour as opposed to some of the other "more popular" tours which had dozens of people flocking around one costumed and dramatic tour guide. If you are looking for real history along with your ghost stories, choose this tour!

Although there are many options of ghost tours we took the Grayline Ghost & Spirit Walking Tour. This is a 2 hour walking tour that leaves at 7 p.m. Our guide George was very knowledgable about the city and its history. We were looking for a tour that wasn't cheesy with actors dressing up and trying to scare people. We wanted it to be informative, accurate and professional. And that is what we got. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. And if you are a paranormal or history buff even better.

The only suggestion I would have is to be able to sit down more often. This is a tour where you are walking and standing for the whole 2 hours. There is a bathroom break given at a bar halfway through the tour and you can get a drink as well. Unfortunately, as there were some disabled people in our group they ended up dropping off after about an hour.

Aside from that, I loved it and would recommend to anyone visiting New Orleans.

I searched for Ghost Tours online and booked this tour through Big Easy Tours initially, so I was a little confused that Gray Line ended up conducting it in the end.

Needless to to say we had a wonderful time. Lori was our tour guide and did a fantastic job of "toning" down things to a PG level for our six year old. We learned and saw some interesting facts and places in the French Quarter. Lori was very detailed and knew her stuff.
