Full description

Experience one of the most haunted cities in America on a walking tour that explores the Big Easy’s infamous dark side. Explore and investigate areas like the French Quarter with paranormal equipment alongside licensed tour guides, historians, and professional storytellers.

At the start of your tour, your guide will provide an EMF meter or ghost/paranormal detector during the tour. Visit over 15 different locations, including St. Louis Cathedral, St. Anthony's Garden, and The Cabildo, the former seat of the colonial government.

Discover locations of unsolved murders and suicides and get the facts about real, documented reports of vampires and ghosts. See where vampires held their victims and learn about the traditional burial practices of New Orleans.

Go to The Presbytere to admire one of the best examples of colonial Spanish architecture, see the Old Ursuline Convent, Jackson Square, and the Sultan's Palace, where legend has it a mass murder took place. Stop at many of the National Historic Landmarks that the city has to offer.

See the most haunted house in New Orleans at the Lalaurie Mansion and learn about the so-called Mistress of Death. As you roam the streets of the French Quarter and other areas, make stops along the way to optionally buy drinks to enjoy during the tour (cost not included).

I took my 15-year old granddaughter and her friend. They loved it for the drama. I loved it for the history. We missed the first tour that we scheduled because the phone directed us somewhere else and we were too late to make the tour. However, the tour guide contacted us and rescheduled for the next night. The teenagers were ecstatic! Coty was our guide and there could not be anyone any better. He was extremely knowledgeable and related easily to all the different age groups on our tour...15 year olds, forty-year olds, 74-year olds, etc. He thoughtfully asked me whether certain information might be embarrassing to the teenagers or not (it wasn't). Coty also obviously had many friends and colleagues in the French Quarter who opened their doors to his tour group and provided extra personal experiences. We would do this tour all over again.

We went on the 7 PM tour of the city. Our tour guide was absolutely fabulous. He was fun, entertaining, and very informative. Although we didn’t see any ghosts, it was creepy. We learned a lot of interesting history with a little folk lore mixed in. We had a great tour and would highly recommend!

Unique, funny and interesting!

Our tour guide was great, so funny, entertaining and with lots of great stories. At times these strayed from ghost stories and also included some history and interesting trivia (like what properties are owned by what celebrities), but we still thought the tour was amazing. We were even able to stop at a few bars and grab some drinks along the way! (If you wanted). Would definitely recommend.
