Full description
Catch sight of spirits and tantalize yourself with tales of witchcraft during a walking tour of New Orleans. Travel to several of the city's venerated neighborhoods, soaking up stories about the witches, ghosts, vampires, and Voodoo practitioners who have contributed to the city's colorful past.

Meet your local guide and set off on a journey through the dark recesses of New Orleans’ haunted history. Your 2‐hour tour winds through the French Quarter, passing creepy sites such as Muriel’s Restaurant and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum, known for its questionable medical practices in the 19th century such as bloodletting and leeching.

See the St. Germain House, former home of rumored vampire Jacques Saint Germain, and hear bloodcurdling tales of LaLaurie House and its wicked mistress Madame LaLaurie.

Allow your guide to regale you with titillating stories of vampires who once roamed the city streets while you keep your eyes peeled for apparitions at every turn.

We missed the tour on the 5th because our flight had been delayed and we arrived in NOLA late. We contacted the tour guide at the start of another tour to see if there was any space on an upcoming tour that we could join, and they fit us into a tour on Saturday night. And didn't charge us! Fantastic, informative, educational, entertaining! We would suggest this tour to one and all!

Enjoyed the 1st half, We had our coffee break, then as I rushed to the washroom when I saw it was time to continue, I lost the WHOLE group !!! The guide should’ve given us a certain time to be outside. We were a group of 4 from Montreal, who loved the stories despite the heavy rain. We never found them, so went to a restaurant instead

We picked this tour because my 13-year-old son was really interested in doing this. My boyfriend however was skeptical. This tour was great not only history of some of the horrendous things that occurred in past years in this town but how it affects the city today. We all loved it and would highly recommend this!
