Unique, funny and interesting!

Our tour guide was great, so funny, entertaining and with lots of great stories. At times these strayed from ghost stories and also included some history and interesting trivia (like what properties are owned by what celebrities), but we still thought the tour was amazing. We were even able to stop at a few bars and grab some drinks along the way! (If you wanted). Would definitely recommend.

Our tour guide was a native of New Orleans and I believe this really helps with the tour authenticity. Our guide was full of “fun facts” and the walk part of the tour didn’t feel like walking because he had something exciting to share every other block! Definitely recommend!
