Did not find this tour interesting at all. Most of the time was spent warning and reprimanding people for not standing in the right place so as to not upset the locals. Heard other tour groups getting a lot more information on some of the haunted places that was not mentioned in our group even though we walked by the same buildings.

Great tour . Trevor was a very good narrator of haunting / vampire and voodoo stories . Good for our age group 20 - 60 year olds . Easy walking and paced well as there were many stops for the stories . Only negative was the half way stop . We chose to buy a drink at laffite bar and we were charged $24 for a Bacardi coke and Tito’s club , outrageous ! Which has nothing to do with the tour company . But maybe a new halfway point for future reference .

I can definitely see why this is labeled the #1 Haunted tour. My boyfriend and I chose to go on the 18+ tour at 8pm and it was perfect! Our guide Wendy Darling, was absolutely amazing. She had such an awesome personality that had me laughing a good portion of the tour. Her knowledge on the history of the city was fantastic. I learned so much and taking the tour at night added to the creepy part for sure! I would highly recommend taking the 18 and older tour because we got full detail on the stories and it was worth it!

From the random crackhead that attacked our tour guy to all the crazy stories from New Orleans past this was a pretty unique tour, tour guide took it all in stride handling all the cities distractions and pushing through to deliver each story to perfection. Could have stayed all night listening to more stories.

The guide Graham knew the story’s but he didn’t share them anywhere close to the locations so we could see what he was talking about. And keep your numbers smaller! If you are going to have 28 people on a tour wear a headset.

There were not as many ghost related stories as I had expected. The tour guide was fun though. Although maybe a bit difficult to try and follow at times.
