Best guide ever !
, Sep 2021
The guide was terrific. He kept us entertained the entire time. He was very thoughtful about telling us when the street was bumpy so we didn't trip. We would take any excursion he led. There were only 2 of us an the tour so in between giving us all the info.we had pleasant conversations.
Enjoyed the History
, Sep 2021
My guide was very good and personable, but the tour was not scary. I did enjoy walking around the French Quarter at night and learning about the history. I thought the group was a little too big to hear and interact with the guide at times.
Amazing Ghost/Vampire/Murder/Zombie tour!

Worse experience

Was the worse thing ever. They gave us the wrong meeting place. When we got the correct meeting place they told us it was over booked. Called and got no help with anything. List out money, waited over 45 minutes and told sorry you can’t go.
