    Must do when in NOLA! We love to do walking tours early in our trip when visiting a new place. It immerses you into the culture of the city. The guide (Bobby I believe) was great and informative. He also made some great recommendations on places to visit during our trip since he was born and raised in the region.

    Mary J was so much fun! The ghost believers in our group were thrilled with her spooky stories and those who did not believe loved the history that she taught. She gave us the perfect amount of information which left us wanting to do more research about the ghosts of New Orleans.

    Educational and Fun

    Our guide (I think her name was Malika) was funny, informative, and had some great anecdotes to share about events both silly and spine-tingling that have happened throughout the jumbled up history of the French Quarter. Her explanation of the vampire legend had everybody grinning, even though the truth is just as macabre as the legend. Great tour, highly recommended.
