Loved learning about the history of the various French Quarter buildings as tied into their ghost stories. Very indepth and ended at the oldest bar in the US, perfect ending! Highlight was definitely reaching into the bars to see if my fingers got touched... terrifying.

Thanks so much for the excellent review - we are happy that you were properly frightened (in the good way) and the Blacksmith Shop is such a hidden jewel we love to introduce our guests to it.

We are regularly in the city and have done a fair share of the tours available. This one by far surpassed the others.

lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

About a mile during the course of two hours. The pace is to walk a block and then hear a story, then walk a block or so and hear two stories and so on. It is a leisurely pace, easily done with a cocktail in hand.
