Full description
Maybe ghost stories don’t quite pique your interest, but you will have that curiosity about the dark side of humanity. Some of the most terrifying things are what people do to each other, and perhaps you will want to glimpse into this corrupt corner of existence. You'll be brought on a tour of the sordid details behind New Orleans’ dark bloody murders. You’ll visit locations in the French Quarter where the echoes of gruesome crimes of murder still cry out. The city, while soulful and charming, has always had a seedy side from its beginnings. From being settled by the dregs of France—people offered to be released from poorhouses and prisons if they boarded ship for Louisiana—to the delinquency and depravity of today, where the unspeakable still happens. And you’ll see where it all happened, and understand the history behind it.

This is a 2h tour in French Quarter where you walk around (you need comfortable clothes and shoes) and you hear about various crimes that have occurred from the early 1800s until modern day. You see the buildings/apartments where these crimes happened (if still standing) and you get a lot of background information as well in regards to the crime, not just the event itself.

Our tour guide was very nice and helpful. Sean was very knowledgeable and had us intrigued the entire journey. I highly recommend this tour of New Orleans streets and vast gruesome history. Be sure that you book this tour on your next visit to NOLA!
