Great stories, poor sites

The stories were very entertaining, but the actual sites/stops we visited were very boring to see. Furthermore, a significant chunk of the tour was spent visiting bars, which wasn’t very enjoyable for our group because none of us drank. Kristi was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area though, great tour guide.

Zack was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and certainly personable. Our teenager was dying to do this tour and we just went along but ended up we all really enjoyed it. Only issue was the site stated we would end the tour at 941 Bourbon but we were far from that.

Sandra is an excellent storyteller and makes the underbelly of New Orleans a morbidly fascinating place. Please note, parents should book a family friendly version, because the 18+ version is definitely R-rated and will likely scare kids with tales of vampire cults and the ghosts of serial killers.

Trevor was such a cool and very informed guide. His humor worked for everyone of all ages and his knowledge of the area was evident. He spent time outside his work schedule to find out more information in order to give us the best experience. Trevor+ New Orleans made our trip great.

Not too scary for families. Read up on “casket girls” before you go!

Trevor was a good guide, though he had a tendency to twist the history a bit to get a good story! Interesting ghost stories, a voodoo “show and tell.” I wish he hadn’t taken such liberties with the casket girls story … I realize it’s entertainment, but the true story is fascinating enough without turning the girls into vampires!

Hey Heidi, thanks so much for the feedback. We will definitely share this with Trevor!
