Delve deep into New Orleans’ haunted history on an evening French Quarter walking tour that doesn’t just walk by an authentic haunted location, it takes you inside to experience its well-documented paranormal activity for yourself. Hear tales of murder, mayhem, voodoo, and vampires from your guide as you look for evidence of ghosts and stroll the lamplit streets and squares of America’s most haunted city.
  • Explore the French Quarter's most haunted locales on an evening ghost tour
  • Hear true stories and tall tales from an entertaining guide
  • Go inside an authentic haunted location with a haunted past
  • Fun and spooky way to connect with New Orleans history
What to Expect
When the sun goes down, connect with your guide next to the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter, and set off by foot to explore the historic heart of New Orleans. Stroll down dimly lit streets lined by iron-lace balconies and curious storefronts while a guide shares the true tales of scandals, crimes, and mysterious events that shocked the city. While most tours just take you in front of stately Creole mansions, this one shows you inside an authentic haunted location. After visiting this and other haunted sites, be sure to check your photos for orbs and other evidence of paranormal activity. The tour ends at the departure location.

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 one by far the worst. Mikki was not making any
