Just got back to our hotel having taken the Ghost tour around the French Quarter. We had Adele as our guide. She was great. It would be well worth asking for her. A nice mix of fascinating history and creepy stories. About two hours but at leisurely pace with a brief stop at a bar for beer and loo stop. Highly recommended.

I took this tour yesterday, with Mimi as the guide. I had a great time! Mimi is very knowledgeable about New Orleans history; I learned so much from her. Plus she’s fun! I got to see where Marie Laveau is (maybe) buried and Nick Cage’s um, unusual (future) tomb, the big pyramid. I saw a lot, learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed Mimi’s company. This tour, this company and this guide highly recommended!

The tour was informative and entertaining! Easy to find the starting point. We were greeted warmly and our tour guide James was very good. He shared a lot of interesting information about New Orleans history and it’s spooky past. Would definitely recommend.

      This was a terrible tour. There was no historical value whatsoever. The only thing there was were bad jokes. We left the tour early.

  •   i booked this tour as a gift to my whole bachelorette party. There were 17 of us and we all felt like our tour guide was rambling about random things rather than giving us history and facts. I’ve been on many tours before and this...More

      I tend not to write much on these forums because there is generally an overload of review with similar comments, however given the quality of Brent's tour, i thought he deserved some recognition. Firstly, you are not out ghost busting, rather, they explain some of...More
