Full description
Catch sight of spirits and tantalize yourself with tales of witchcraft during a walking tour of New Orleans. Travel to several of the city's venerated neighborhoods, soaking up stories about the witches, ghosts, vampires, and Voodoo practitioners who have contributed to the city's colorful past. Meet your local guide and set off on a journey through the dark recesses of New Orleans’ haunted history. Your 2‐hour tour winds through the French Quarter, passing creepy sites such as Muriel’s Restaurant and the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum, known for its questionable medical practices in the 19th century such as bloodletting and leeching. See the St. Germain House, former home of rumored vampire Jacques Saint Germain, and hear bloodcurdling tales of LaLaurie House and its wicked mistress Madame LaLaurie. Allow your guide to regale you with titillating stories of vampires who once roamed the city streets while you keep your eyes peeled for apparitions at every turn.

Crystal was AMAZING! She was so kind to our daughter and really made her first trip/tour in New Orleans a memorable one! We highly recommend requesting her if possible. She kept a great pace, was informative about so much history & local lore, and she seemed to have a great repore with the shop owners along our tour route. We will be back to visit her and her tour again!

The tour was great! Crystal, our tour guide was fun, entertaining, energetic and never a dull moment. She was very knowledgeable about the city’s spiritual history and had great stories to tell. She was kind and patient and took us to many sites, allowed us to shop if possible and to get a drink if needed. Would definitely recommend. Wonderful time!!!! Won’t be disappointed. Might even have a paranormal experience or two.

It was a lot of information. History mixed in with tales that you can choose to believe or not but we had a wonderful guide who brought it to life! They also did an excellent job with keeping us distanced and masked throughout the night. And if we needed a break we could let him know and step aside. It was a really great tour I would recommend!
