This is the only Viator tour we have ever taken where we were extremely disappointed. After reading the excellent reviews, we were looking forward to this event. During our tour we had the impression our guide that evening might be filling in for the regular guide. He could not answer questions, but said he "could look it up for us", but he did not do so. He suggested that he had personal experience with some of the spirits he described haunting different homes, which was not believable. We did not see the pharmacy museum at all. There were some inappropriate comments made that I will share if contacted by a Viator representative. Our guide was very conscious of checking with us to see if we were okay with the walking (which we all were) which was considerate. We had booked the extended tour, but by the end of the regular tour we were more than ready for it to be over. We did see many ongoing tours that evening with other companies, so we would recommend you find another tour if you are interested in a ghost tour. This is not the one least not that night.

I hate to give a bad review and it had little to do with our guide. There we several other groups also doing the tour but we were the only ones on our tour (my husband and I). You’d think this would be an advantage but it really added nothing to the tour except a slight awkwardness since the focus was all on us. That said, it’s basically just s walking ghost story that wasn’t narrated that great. I think we’d heard most of the tales but we felt no more educated throughout the tour. It was really quite boring and passing the other groups, they seemed to be having a better time. 2 hour walk— better ghost stories on tv. I expected more chills and thrills although one location had very heavy energy that was indeed palatable.

What You'll Get

New Orleans Ghosts meets nightly at 8pm. Our tours last approximately one-hour, with an extended tour option to add 30-45 minutes to the experience. Tours meet and end in the French Quarter, at Jackson Square (700 Decatur Street), in front of the the St. Louis Cathedral.

We'll visit 8 locations on the tour, and 13 with the extended tour, with stops at locations like:
• The Infamous LaLaurie Mansion: Home of the rich, cruel and powerful Madam La Laurie, whose crimes are too horrific to describe here.
• Louisiana Supreme Court (Extended tour exclusive): Hear of the suicides, mobster trials and many other stories from the halls of the Supreme Court.
• Beauregard-Keyes House: Centuries of spirits haunt this location. Civil war soldiers walk with Italian mafia members. Who will you see?
• Pharmacy Museum: The “Mad Doctor” went on a bloody rampage here; guests report hearing the screams of victims and feeling the cold blade of the doctor’s scalpel between their shoulder blades….
• ...Plus the Old Ursuline Convent, Jackson Square, and more!

The NOLA Ghosts Difference: Join us for an authentic experience: No gimmicks. We strive to deliver a memorable experience for visitors and locals alike. The mission of New Orleans Ghosts is to explain the strange, unexplained, and fantastic hauntings routinely experienced in New Orleans. To do this, we seek to answer the who, what, how, and why behind each haunting story.

First, we journey into the history behind each location we visit, and the people involved in our stories. We believe that it is often a person’s violent and tragic history that results in the lingering presences at each location that we call “ghosts”. Only by understanding the history and what the people in our stories suffered through, can we begin to understand why a place might be haunted. Endeavor to put yourself in the shoes of the men and women in our stories, to understand their plight. Then, we will attempt to draw a logical connection between the events and people of the past, to the prevalent hauntings experienced today. While no one can use science to explain how a place is haunted, we venture to logically explain why a place is haunted through engaging storytelling backed by true historic events.
