New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,094 reviews
New Orleans is infamous for its spooky past, filled with tales of voodoo, vampires, ghosts, and witches. During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night. Plus, a centrally located meeting point makes for a hassle-free, fun evening.

We were a little reluctant to stop here as it is in the middle of the tourist scrum, but we came in, sat and enjoyed some authentic Dixieland jazz. The music as sublime.

We were there in March of 2019. I put off writing a review because I had really wanted to like it. The music was, in fact, great. I'm giving it 3/5 solely because the musicians were stellar. The experience in every other way was awful. We showed up when we were told that advance tickets might be available. None were. So, we made the decision to wait in line for 2.5 hours. We were near the front of the line, but once we got inside, we were forced by the ushers, or whatever you call the people who yell constantly "move all the way to the right, I know you think this doesn't mean you but this means you", to stand in the very back, where we could not see anything. My wife could not see over the 6 foot man who stood in front of her, even though he could have stepped off the platform and had nearly the view that he had while on it. I could see little bits of the band between the heads in front of me. Having already stood for 3 hours before the performance started, we did not enjoy standing again for all that time. A lot of our limited time in NOLA was wasted standing on that sidewalk. Surely this could be done better? Yeah, it's a tradition, and all that. I understand that the money goes to a good cause, and they are saving money by doing it this way. Why not have it be just the least bit enjoyable experience? I would not go back.

I must say I was skeptical about going here. I read some reviews and wasn’t sure it was worth the money. Finally, I decided to just book it, and I am so glad I did! I went ahead and booked the second-row seats so we didn’t have to worry about lining up and waiting, or standing in the back. I would say if you go, this is worth the extra money. I know there are great bands in NOLA that you can find at any bar, but I really enjoyed this band, it was my favorite that we saw during our trip. The environment is really neat too, it feels like you are in some old studio back in the 50’s or something. I would say this is worth the money and time, and a good organization to support!

We bought reserved seats in advance, which I would highly recommend. This allows bench seating, where most other patrons are standing or sitting directly on the floor. The music is sublime and the storytelling is fascinating. We loved it and will certainly go back again. We visited as a family with teens, and they enjoyed this memorable experience. We went to an early show and then dinner immediately afterward, which worked out well.

Ain't nothing like it in the whole darn universe. The city could do with a few more Ben Jaffes. Don't miss it!
