My friend and I traveled down from North Carolina and New York. This had been one of the top ghost tours that was recommended and we were not disappointed. Our tour guide was not only full of information on each location we visited but a entertaining actor as well. My friend and I were not disappointed with the tour, and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about the city and it’s dark, mysterious secrets that lie behind the beautiful sights.

We had a great guide, Cody I think? He was so chill, down to earth, like real people. We kept passing other tours with huge groups and really annoying guides. Not ours. He answered so many questions outside of what we were touring. Highlight of our trip.

I booked 5 tours for our wknd in NOLA, and this one was the only one I needed. It covered history, crime, local lore, and a little bit about ghosts and vampires. All the other tours covered the same spots we went, with variations on the same stories.
