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.
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.

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!

History is indeed dark in New Orleans. Thanks for the great review!
We went on this tour our first night in New Orleans. We had been on many ghost tours in other cities, and we knew this was a history tour basically, but we were wanting a little more scare! We did learn a lot that we...More
