Full description
From the beginning faith has ruled this great city. For some, it has created rumors of conspiracy, witchcraft, and vampires. For others, it inspired greatness. Lives have been lost and battlegrounds drawn, but New Orleans’ eclectic belief systems have created a sense of acceptance found nowhere else. Did you know that the famous voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau, was also a devout Catholic? Surprises abound on this inspiring journey. Join the most unique and interesting walking tour in New Orleans. New Orleans is a hot, humid and sometimes unforgiving place where in the dead of summer the air takes on the quality of a crawfish boil. It is a long, drawn out fever that seeps into the bloodstream and compels even the sweetest from small town America to do obscene things. This is the real New Orleans which does not fit neatly into the category of "American" city. It is a black water port, Caribbean and lawless; settled by thieves, prostitutes, and the other criminally disposed. It is also Catholic and pious with Roman altars trimmed in gold. It is equally black magic, voodoo, and the steady throb of African drums. New Orleans is sex and confession. It is sin and forgiveness. This is the place where God and the Devil shook hands so the party could go on. New Orleans is a city for the sinner and the saint. This is a tour that takes you through the sweat soaked madness of our best and worst. Get lost in this strange city and explore its dark past because this is not your grandmother's tour.

She was a very knowledgeable person and very enthusiastic when she tells the history of the areas we visited, my husband and I enjoyed every moment of the tour and we learned so much about the French quarter for our first visit to New Orleans please keep up the good work.

Our guide, Angela I believe her name was, was amazing! I learned so much about the history of the city and I'm not usually much of a history buff. She pulled us into it, though, with the way she told her stories. Very entertaining and educational at the same time. Thank you!
