The tour was a joke !
Vane
, May 2022
We were so excited about this tour and looking forward hearing all the stories as New Orleans is full of them, however our tour guide was not able to provide that experience at all, he jumped from one thing to another will get easily distracted , some stuff even sounded made up , it was a joke…I think the whole group was confused and disappointed . I noticed some people left half way through the tour .

Mary J was an excellent guide. She was both knowledgeable and entertaining. She was especially informative (and patient with all our questions) about voodoo.

Our first tour that we tried to take ended with out tour guide getting sick. We had a different tour guide come out but gave us a paranormal tour. The guide was great and it was fun but it wasn’t the tour we booked. We reached out to the company and they allowed us to go on the original tour we booked on the following night. Both tour guides were great. They had fun engaging stories. Fred was a great guide. I would highly recommend taking a tour with this company.

The tour guide was extremely rude and not friendly at all. She seemed like she was annoyed to be giving us a tour.

Not really ghosts..voodoo or vampire

Disappointing tour, more history than ghoulish. Tour totally oversold with several tours parading around the streets. Couldn't hear what was being said for other guides close by. Been on better ghost tours.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
I'm sorry to hear that! This is a busy time of year in New Orleans, and we do our best to accommodate everyone who wants to tour with us-- I do apologize for the noise level. Please join us again the next time y'all are in town and we'll try to get you booked on a quieter date and time.

Fun
Becky_W
, May 2022
The tour was cool but our guide has a very short fuse and kept yelling at us and other people in the group for having fun. Overall presentation style was unsure and he got extremely flustered when an interuption would occur. I would recommend notes for reference while a team member is still training and learning the content of the tour. After the tour, he was unhappy with a tip amount from a group and verbally said that's all you're going to tip me after all the trouble you caused. Considered leaving the tour but hung around because we paid and wanted to learn. To reiterate, the tour itself is cool with all the spooky history..
