French Quarter History and Ghost Buster Tour
From US$14.00
Overview
Delve deep into New Orleans’ haunted history on an evening French Quarter walking tour that doesn’t just walk by the mysterious Soulé Mansion, 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 one of the most notorious—the circa-1830 Soulé Mansion. Learn about its bawdy and tragic past, including stints as both a nightclub and Civil War orphanage, and step onto the balcony to share the view of unlucky former residents. After visiting this and other supposedly haunted sites, be sure to check your photos for orbs and other evidence of paranormal activity.

The tour ends at the departure location.

Great Tour!

I purchased this tour via Groupon. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable he really enjoys what he does and loves N.O.L.A. I recommed this tour. Wear comfortable shoes because there is quite a bit of walking.

Excellent tour!

Fun and entertaining tour guide, smallish group so it was more intimate and less hassle, good hours (7:30 - 9:00), tons of fun facts and access to places not open to public. Super fun!

Great history tour!

Would recommend this tour to anyone. Our guide Jordan was hilarious and laid back which was awesome. Nice small group as well and was taken inside a couple buildings which a lot of others don’t offer. Definitely more of a dark history type tour than...More
