My group leader was Trevor. He was very knowledgeable and answered the groups questions with so many facts and great stories. We did our tour on a Thursday night and maintained our social distancing. Our group was made up of about 8 people. The route we took was clear of crowds and I felt very safe. Definitely recommend checking this tour out. Had tons of fun with the family and learned about the rich haunted history of the French quarter!

The tour was fine. Our guide. Trevor was average at best. He had a large group but didnt really interact that well. He also mentioned about 12 times he is usually dressed as a pirate, maybe that would have made him better.

I am always apprehensive on booking tours with the fear they would be “touristy” but I’m glad I booked this! Taylor was our guide and it was pouring rain. It didn’t phase him and it made the experience that more exciting. He was super knowledgeable about all the spots we went too and we learned so much! I was tired before the tour and was energized by the end by all the spooky stories. Taylor MADE this tour. He deserves a raise

Our guide, Robin, was very energetic and kept the audience attention. He was very knowledgeable on the history of New Orleans. The stories told on the tour were interesting and not played down in regards to how things were in our country hundreds of years ago. Would suggest to others to take this tour and hope they get they same guide as we did!!
