I took two different tours with this company - one I enjoyed greatly and one was so-so. The Cemetery and Voodoo tour didn't teach me as much about voodoo as I was expecting - but more about the Yellow Fever epidemic. The ghost tour, however,...More

We took the classic New Orleans music tour. There's so much more to New Orleans music than jazz and this tour covers a lot of it.
