The basics

The Pharmacy Museum is small and can easily be seen in less than an hour. The first floor is home to a soda fountain counter and displays of apothecary bottles, show globes, voodoo potions, and surgical devices from the 19th century and beyond. Climb up to the second floor to see the physician’s office, sick room, and special exhibits.

Many New Orleans attraction passes include museum admission, so it's a quick and easy stop to fit in while strolling around the French Quarter.

Real history
Michael was awesome. He balanced real history with gray story telling. My only request would be he add a QR code at the end so we can tip him more!

NOLA Drunken History Tour from New Orleans
The Drunken walking tour was great! Raffle was awesome and down to earth. He told us about the History of New Orleans and about who he is. The bars that we stopped at were nice . Raffle made sure that they had clean bathrooms and the atmosphere was not as busy as the ones on Boubon Street. If you reserve this tour, I highly recommend Raffle.

Mistress G, and her Spoon, gave every penny's worth of our money on the adult tour and then some. It was hilarious, gruesome, informative, and well paced for everyone on tour. She was mindful of of our safety without being bogged down by details. We aodred her!

New Orleans #1 Haunted Ghost, Voodoo, & Vampire Tour
Best story piece is the last stop. Taylor was awesome. It totally freaked out the tour when the owner came out of the building and walked on the balconies. Wear good shoes for walking. Might be best to go when temp is cooler. There is a stop about halfway thru tour that lets you get refreshments and use facilities.

New Orleans Killers and Thrillers Tour
Our guide was great and had interesting stories however the group was a little too large and there were so many other tour groups near each other it was hard to hear him. Not his fault at all.

Haunted Ghost & Paranormal Tour in New Orleans
Our tour guide, Raffle, was amazing! He was so friendly and so knowledgeable of the history of New Orleans! He was also personable, so the entire tour wasn’t just history, he threw stories from his childhood into it! Would recommend 10/10

We'd already spent a few days doing tours, but we still heard some new things from Christian, and appreciated his enthusiasm and hospitality!
