Though their years of immortality-fueled experience make ghosts seem like the perfect employees, these benefits are offset by their tendency to wear bedsheets to business meetings or call in dead to work. Run an otherworldly background check with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get two adult tickets to the City of the Dead Tour or the Strange True Tour (up to a $40 value) from Strange True Tours.

Owner Jeffrey Holmes and his staff of brainy guides pride themselves on the historical accuracy of Strange True Tours, leading inquisitive sightseers and lore-hungry locals on adult-oriented educational promenades throughout the Big Easy. Shuffling off this mortal coil Monday through Saturday at 11:30 a.m., the City of the Dead Tour winds around the labyrinthine above-ground crypts and zombie jazz bands of the oldest continuously running graveyard in New Orleans. Tour takers comb through the age-old Saint Louis No. 1 Cemetery, strolling past the tomb of voodoo queen Marie Laveau and the future final resting place of aspiring pharaoh Nicolas Cage.

Offset memento moris with a less ghoulish meander around New Orleans on the Strange True Tour, departing daily at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. The Strange True Tour details the documented Louisiana exploits of pirates, prostitutes, and presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, along with a score of other fully sourced New Orleans history nuggets brought to life by the city's fleet of animatronic robot reenactors.

Customer Reviews

Jeff was super knowledgeable, presented the information in a fascinating way and even customized the tour based upon our specific historical interests!

My wife and I took the tour with Jeffrey. We were very impressed with the historical knowledge Jeffrey had of Fort Lauderdale. Of course, the knowledge included some spooky twists. We enjoyed the casual walk along the new river.

Awesome time! Very informative. Would definitely go back. We have lived down here for awhile and didn't know all of the amazing stories of Ft. Lauderdale!
