February 5, 2018 - 

Our guide Ryan and funny, knowledgeable, and clearly enjoyed his job. I've taken similar tours and this was by far the most enjoyable and Ryan provided details I'd never heard before. Looking forward to referring others to this tour!


"Great tour that touched on..."

February 4, 2018 - 

Great tour that touched on stories of all of the above, ghosts, voodoo, and vampires! Our guide, Edward, was so animated and so charismatic and his voice alone was very captivating. We even stopped for a drink/bathroom break about halfway through the walk. We had a fabulous time and look forward to trying another tour with the same company.


"We had a blast! The..."

January 26, 2018 - 

We had a blast! The tour guide was great, and it was fun to walk around the Quarter at night learning some of the cities spookier history.


"The tour was awesome. It..."

January 18, 2018 - 

The tour was awesome. It was cold, but our tour guide was as willing as we were to stick it out. She even took the time to call ahead to the bar we stopped by to make sure they were open. Sara knew what she was talking about, knew where she was going, and was a great storyteller.


"Another great tour with Viator!!..."

January 14, 2018 - 

Another great tour with Viator!! Cristo was WONDERFUL. Loved hearing all about New Orleans!!


"We had a large group..."

January 12, 2018 -

Very good, We have a better understanding of Voodoo and history of N.O. Thank you!!


"This was an excellent tour..."

January 8, 2018 - 

This was an excellent tour made so by our amazing guide, Mary Lynne. Not only was she a wealth of information she was fun and entertaining. This was our second tour in two days with her and when we arrived at the tour site and saw that she was to be one of the guides requested to be in her group as we had so enjoyed our tour with her the day before. We found the stories and history of this tour to be very interesting and would certainly recommend the tour to others.

Recomendable


"The tour was super fun!!..."

December 28, 2017 - 

The tour was super fun!! My boyfriend is a skeptic,but even he had a good time. Our tour guide Crystal was funny and informative at the same time.


"This was really fun I..."

December 27, 2017 - 

This was really fun I went with my wife and maybe because we watch The Originals this was the most interesting activity in our trip. Only downside and they do tell you this is that you don't go into any scary/haunted buildings. Many are occupied by residents.


"I can't say enough good..."

December 17, 2017 - 

I can't say enough good things about this tour!! Our guide was engaging and very knowledgeable in the folklore and ghost stories of the area. He made me want to learn more about the city and come back for another visit. I could almost picture the real life participants in the tales told - and that makes our guide an excellent story teller in my book. While no actual spirits were spotted, I did get some intuitive feelings that creepy things had happened in the spots we visited.


"Sarah and a tourguide in..."

December 17, 2017 - 

Sarah and a tourguide in training Doug? I'm sorry, I'm so bad with names! gave us such a great inside of the past of New Orleans. It had it all, ghosts, voodoo and vampires! The whole program and every single story was skincrawling good! Definitely would book it again, when I'm back in New Orleans! 5

Great tour with lots of history and fun and some creepy stories. We so lucked out with Edward. He was an amazing tour guide. So entertaining. I think he said he has a background in theater and we could tell. He was super knowledgeable and oh so entertaining! I cannot say enough about how awesome he was! Sam was learning and did share one of the stories. Sam has potential to be a great guide if he keeps watching Edward! Loved the history and beautiful buildings. Got to see some move sites too. HIGHLY recommend this tour! Oh and we did stop for a bathroom and drink break....yay!!!!

"This was a great tour..."

October 24, 2017 - 

This was a great tour with so much history and information, we really enjoyed it. Our guide, who was pretty new as this was his third tour, was well prepared and did an awesome job. I have to mention that we had a gentleman on the tour who had clearly indulged a bit to much in drinking and tried to interrupt the guide repeatedly. Our guide handled the situation so very well, good job. I got some wonderful pictures that I will treasure for ever. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed this tour and highly recommend it. I wish I could remember the guides name

Our tour guide was Scott and he was incredible! He spoke loud and clear which was impressive with all of the other tours around us and was super knowledgeable about all of the towns history. He was super friendly and very cool to chat with. Awesome tour, we would definitely do it again hands down!


"This was a fun tour...."

October 14, 2017 - 

This was a fun tour. It took two hours and we walked a good bit through the French Quarter. We stopped at the sights of several grisly murders which the tour leader had excellent knowledge of. In fact, the tour leader did a great job. She remembered people's names and kept everyone involved. We also stopped at buildings haunted by ghosts and heard about voodoo spells too. This tour was eerie and fun and I recommend it

"Amazing tour! My friend and..."

September 18, 2017 - 

Amazing tour!

My friend and I were visiting NOLA from England and decided on a whim to take this tour. We were so pleasantly surprised. Our tour was led by Alyssa, who was so sweet, friendly and inclusive. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and told us a lot of interesting facts I did not expect to learn on a ghost tour. Really, this is more of a gruesome history tour, which is infinitely more interesting. We stopped off halfway through the tour in a bar for a drink and to use the bathroom, then walked around the rest of the time with our drinks listening to Alyssa tell us fascinating stories as the sun was setting. Amazing experience and an absolute bargain. Just go, you will not regret it! I think most people would want to take this tour later at night, but I'd recommend going at around 5 o'clock as we did, when you can see everything a little better. Thanks Alyssa, you made our night!


"We took this tour with..."

September 8, 2017 - 

We took this tour with our 17 year old daughter and her best friend, everyone loved it!!


"Edward was a great guide!..."

September 5, 2017 - 

Edward was a great guide! Went with a group of friends and we all had a wonderful time! We liked the stories, but also enjoyed hearing Edward talk about the history of the city. Perfect thing to do before heading out to the bars or dinner.


"Definitely recommend this tour. We..."

September 3, 2017 - 

Definitely recommend this tour. We had Edward as our tour guide, and he was an outstanding storyteller. The tour was a fascinating look into New Orleans' past - not sure if those stories are embellished, but it wouldn't matter if they are!


"Our tour guide was Marylin..."

August 30, 2017 - 

Our tour guide was Marylin and she was amazing! She had great stories and insight and was so personable and fun! She also made sure all the tour got home safely even walking back toward the hotel with us! Highly recommend doing this tour if you're interested in the darker side of NOLA


"Excellent tour around the French..."

August 30, 2017 - 

Excellent tour around the French Quarter. Clearly there were quite a few messed up people living in New Orleans way back when. We enjoyed the tales and it was a pretty substantial amount of time. I'd recommend it!

All I can say is our tour guide Rose was amazing!!! I highly recommend this tour.


"Christo is an awesome tour..."

August 13, 2017 - 

Christo is an awesome tour guide! If you can, try to get with one of his groups. He is an engaging story teller, is really passionate about the content, and gives great insight on New Orleans' rich history.


"The tour was dampened sorry..."

August 11, 2017 - 

The tour was dampened sorry about the pun by the 10 of rain that fell earlier. Carmel, the guide, was informative but I felt she had to abbreviate the places we went due to the flooding. Under drier circumstances, this could have been top tour.


"Cristo was our guide, he..."

August 8, 2017 - 

Cristo was our guide, he did an awesome job of explaining the history of ghosts and voodoo.. And made it very entertaining too!!!Highly recommend.

August 7, 2017 - 

I would recommend this tour if you are interested in haunted history. It's not all ghost and ghouls, I actually learned a lot of interesting history as it relates to the city of New Orleans.

July 28, 2017 -

"LOVED this tour.....incredible information and..."

July 18, 2017 - 

LOVED this tour.....incredible information and history about NOLA!! Part of the allure of this tour was going in the evening/night time. Unfortunately our tour guide, Doc was leaving the tour guide business. Hate to see him leave he did a good job telling stories that were so unbelievable they could only happen in NOLA. This tour is a must for anyone wanting to learn the macabre of NOLA, ghost stories, murders, war stories, voodoo and vampires......Highly recommend this tour!

July 6, 2017 - 

I am sorry i forgot our guide's name but she had pink hair and she was FANTASTIC! We did this tour on our first night there and we were late and missed our scheduled tour and they got us in the next group. They were very accommodating and the tour was great.

July 2, 2017 - 

After reviewing many vampire and ghosts turs, my friend and I chose to do this one and we were not disappointed! Skip was our tour guide and he was very personable, friendly and informative! He had great presentation and character! We learned so much about the history of New Orleans while being taken to several haunted places. His stories were fun and factual. The tour itself is only about a mile walk, which was perfect for us since we had been out exploring the city all day. Each tour guide seemed fun and active, but we were excited to be in Skip's group! I highly recommend this tour to anybody who loves eery stories!

"This tour was so much..."

June 12, 2017 - 

This tour was so much fun! Our guide was funny, smart, and excited to show us around and tell us stories. I just wish it hadn't been pouring out. She spoke loud enough so we could hear her over the storm, but everyone was soaked so it kind of ruined the experience. Our umbrella didn't quite do the trick in keeping us dry! We walked all around the FQ and heard all kinds of creepy stories. I would do this again in a heartbeat! The funny thing is we didn't stop where we started. We had been there a few days, so we knew where we were going, but I think it could be confusing for some people.


"Really fun and informative tour...."

Really fun and informative tour. Our tour guide Alyssa was delightful - full of energy and enthusiasm!
