Our tour was primarily a history tour, but it was so fascinating to learn about the buildings, the architecture, and the people. Our guide dabbled in stories of hauntings and ghostly experiences as we reached certain areas. I felt it was a great balance and our guide was so knowledgeable on everything. Had a blast

A great introduction to Ghost Hunting!

I wish I could remember the name of our brunette tour guide, but she was awesome! She brought humor, drama. historic facts, and geography to the tour. My husband and I had some encounters on our Ghost Hunting Tool app for our phones. Another member of the tour caught an apparition in her photos. I was concerned that it would be too much walking, but it was not at all. We wove our way through the French Quarter and were entertained all the way. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

A nice time

This tour was not what I expected. If your expecting to go to haunted places and get spooked with the thought of paranormal activity, this is definitely not it. It is just storytelling but not around campfire, just standing for hours in the middle of french quarter listening to your tour guide telling stories that could (possibly) be made up. However, the stories were cool and gruesome and our tour guide was funny so we had a nice time but it took too long and our feet hurt really bad. Wouldn't do it agian or recommend though.
