French Quarter History and Ghost Buster Tour
From US$13.00
Delve deep into New Orleans’ haunted history on an evening French Quarter walking tour that doesn’t just walk by an authentic haunted location, it takes you inside to experience its well-documented paranormal activity for yourself. Hear tales of murder, mayhem, voodoo, and vampires from your guide as you look for evidence of ghosts and stroll the lamplit streets and squares of America’s most haunted city.
What to Expect

When the sun goes down, connect with your guide next to the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter, and set off by foot to explore the historic heart of New Orleans. Stroll down dimly lit streets lined by iron-lace balconies and curious storefronts while a guide shares the true tales of scandals, crimes, and mysterious events that shocked the city.

While most tours just take you in front of stately Creole mansions, this one shows you inside an authentic haunted location. After visiting this and other haunted sites, be sure to check your photos for orbs and other evidence of paranormal activity.

The tour ends at the departure location.

It`s a scam

They are non-professional, it's a hoax! They are grifters! I wouldn't recommend it. We bought the tickets with guide in Spanish and it wasn't like that. The guide left when we feel CHEATED, without explanation. Simply he disappeared (like a ghost). The boy of the...More

After reviewing other walking ghost tours, we settled on this one because it promised to enter a haunted location and said it was the ONLY tour to offer this experience. So we signed up solely for that reason as prior walking ghost tours have bored...More

Brilliant History

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.
