Overview
More
Join me in a stroll through the dark streets of one of the United States' most haunted and horrific cities! We'll wander past places where the dead still linger, and you'll learn of their lives and the tragic circumstances of their deaths. You'll be taken into the oldest end of the city, to hear the legends of the Vampires of New Orleans, their folklore and the strange murders and disappearances unsolved to this day! Private tours can be easily done, and with a private tour the number of stops, location of pickup and specific subject matter may all be customized.

If you're traveling to NOLA, then by all means, grab yourself a beer and go book one of his tours. Jonathan is actually a native of New Orleans, and it shows. His stories are told from the perspective of someone who has lived and breathed...More

Mesmerizing, dark, and mysterious...those words can be used to describe both New Orleans and Jonathan Weiss. A gifted storyteller and a profound historian, Jonathan will captivate you from the moment he appears in Pirates Alley. You will forget that the temp is 98 degrees and...More

We enjoyed every minute. Jonathan is full of knowledge and has a passion for the city. You can tell he really enjoys what he does. Very reasonably priced and worth it.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
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
