Perfect mix of history and haunt! Our tour guide, Ariadne, was engaging and humorous! We would definitely recommend this tour. It won't break your budget and is quite the bargain for what you get. Such a nice way to see the Quarter and learn about the darker side of N'awlins.

Our tour was primarily a history tour, but it was so fascinating to learn about the buildings, the architecture, and the people. Our guide dabbled in stories of hauntings and ghostly experiences as we reached certain areas. I felt it was a great balance and our guide was so knowledgeable on everything. Had a blast

I wish I could remember the name of our brunette tour guide, but she was awesome! She brought humor, drama. historic facts, and geography to the tour. My husband and I had some encounters on our Ghost Hunting Tool app for our phones. Another member of the tour caught an apparition in her photos. I was concerned that it would be too much walking, but it was not at all. We wove our way through the French Quarter and were entertained all the way. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
