*TOURS NEVER EXCEED 12 GUESTS* Hauntings | Humor | History | Hijinks (and maybe a drink or two!) Want to take a haunted tour but afraid of being jammed into a huge group and led by a boring guide? Then this is the tour for you!! Get ready for an unforgettable night of storytelling and sightseeing with a quirky local guide who loves this city and loves to share it! First off our SMALL group will spend a little time getting to know each other - we want it to feel like we're all hanging out with friends! There's a lot to see as we walk through the Quarter, and we'll be stopping frequently to talk about vampires, voodoo, ghosts, serial killers, disease, architecture, and more... all pulled from New Orleans' amazing history. Halfway through we'll take a mid-tour break at a bar to grab a drink (it's a NOLA tradition after all!) We'll finish up the evening outside of the infamous Lalaurie Mansion, the most haunted house in the country! It's only two blocks away from where we started, so it'll be easy to get back. And yes, we WILL use ghost meter on this tour! Over the past 2 years more than 3000 guests have joined us on this tour and we've lost count of how many of them have told us it was the highlight of their trip to New Orleans. Our guests routinely fall in love with New Orleans' haunted past and come away with a much deeper appreciation and understanding of our great city.
*TOURS NEVER EXCEED 14 GUESTS* We're a team of four engaging, high-energy, and fun tour guides (Pandora, Jackson, and Brian). Some of us born in NOLA, some transplanted, but all of us are head over heels in love with our city. Together we've given over 1000 tours! New Orleans has a rich tradition of oral histories and legends that we've dedicated ourselves to learning and passing on to our guests. And this being NOLA, these stories are NOT dry or boring. Humor and playfulness are so integral in capturing the spirit of New Orleans' history, especially the morbid parts (and there are a lot of those!). We each chose to put down roots in New Orleans because it's a place that speaks to us on a deep level. Being able to make a living by sharing our connection & love for this city with guests from around the world is a dream come true
An EMF "ghost" meter for the group to use. Pass around our ghost meter and see for yourself just how haunted NOLA is!
We'll make a total of 6-7 story stops, including - Voodoo Authentica: You'll hear the true story of the famous Queen of Voodoo, Marie Laveau. Hotel Provincial: A civil-war-era hospital to learn about the horrors of musket-shot wounds and amputations. St Germain House: The tale of Jaques St Germain, the mysterious vampire who lived in New Orleans in the early 1900's. LaLaurie Mansion: The most haunted house in North America.
Wear comfy shoes (closed toe is usually better). Its not a long walk (less than a mile) but NOLA streets can be rough!
Tour does not enter any buildings. Tour will run rain or shine unless a severe weather alert is issued by the city.
