Great, well done tour
, Feb 2021
Our guide, Lisa, did a great job; the stories were informative and the delivery was well done. Would do again.

Good tour, best tour guide
, Jan 2021
Our tour guide, Michael, was by far the best part of the experience. He told the popular myths and legends about places, sure, but the best part was him laughing at all of them to tell the true stories about what happened, purely based in historical fact. Extremely informative, very funny, and if anyone I knew visited New Orleans, I would tell them to go to him!

Awesome-we are glad you loved Micheal as much as we do! He's the best! Thanks for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon on another tour!

Everything was very detailed, informative, and interesting! Our tour guide debunked popular myths about certain areas and then told us the whole truth! His name was Michael E. and was the best tour guide ever!

Poor Tour
, Jan 2021
Apparently New Orleans isn’t that haunted! My family and I took the ghosts of New Orleans tour on December 31, 2020. Our tour guide focused too much on history and talked very little of ghosts. Typically, I love the history aspect of these tours which I think adds credibility to the ghost stories. However our guide boringly described the history and glossed over the ghost parts providing very little detail. If you want a good ghost tour you should go to Charleston. Unfortunately, I didn’t get her name so I can’t warn you!

Thanks for taking the time to leave us your thoughts! So much of New Orleans history tells the stories of ghosts along the way and we are sorry that your tour did not meet our ghostly expectations. We agree with your idea about visiting Charleston! Hope to see you on our Ghosts of Liberty tour or on our Death and Depravity tour in Charleston soon!
Just ok.

It's not what I thought it would be. The stories were boring and not at all entertaining. The guide had a good sense of humor and he was nice, but just not a good story teller.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review of your experience. We appreciate every review that we get and take them all seriously. We hate that the tour did not live up to your expectations but are glad that you found that your guide had a good sense of humor!
LaLaurie off the bucket list
, Nov 2020
Our tour last night was led by Lisa. She was awesome! She shared so many stories with us and also enlightened us with lots of history about NOLA. One of the reasons we came here, was to see the LaLaurie mansion. Lisa was a wealth of information and added so much to the facts we already knew! We really enjoyed the tour and will definitely be back!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2020
The LaLaurie story is pretty amazing and we are so glad that enjoyed hearing about it from Lisa!! Thanks and hope to see you on another tour!

Fun learning about some of the houses

I like learning about some of the history of New Orleans with some ghost stories thrown in. I wish it had a couple more stories, maybe one shorter story to fit one more

Michael was an excellent guide, super knowledgeable about all the fun ghost facts in New Orleans. We appreciated a lot of he helped us to debunk some myths about the city, and we learned a great deal about New Orleans history in a fun way. Highly recommended!
