Great time

Great time, guide was great (Aria). Would recommend to friends and family. Lots of interesting info and history.
N.O tour

Too many woke comments. My family never owned or participated in slavery. I am not one of “the stupid white people”. In fact I paid $50 for me and my wife to go on the tour. Don’t attack or insult us.

Our guide Aria was a great story teller. We enjoyed this tour with her. She was very personable and knowledgeable about New Orleans history.
Informative and fun tour

We are not “believers” but wanted to learn a bit more about the history of the city. Our guide was fantastic! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learned quite a bit! I even got a few chills with some of the stories. Even without the ghosts...they are horrific! It’s a great way to see some parts of the French quarter that you would not normally visit. Highly recommend!
Worth Booking!

The stories were engaging, exciting, funny, a little gory, and creepy. We learned some history of the city alongside some wild stories. Absolutely worth scheduling! Not too much walking (5 min between stops), and you get a break halfway through to grab a drink. Bringing drinks is encouraged too! Awesome tour!
Amazing tour

Bobby was our guide. He was awesome. He was funny, knowledgeable of local history, and considerable. This is a must do tour.

Very informative and tour guide James was very entertaining and knowledgeable. My teenage boys and I all enjoyed it thoroughly. Was more of a history tour than ghost tour, but would recommend.
Good but crowded
, May 2021
Overall it was good, our tour guide was pretty funny. It was a little difficult due to how big the group was to fit on the sidewalk. Which made it a little stressful on our guide. Smaller groups would have improved our experience.

James was a very engaging guide! Really enjoyed his haunted tales. Bar stop was fun with the strong hurricane.
Wish I hadn’t wasted my money

There was nothing ghostly about the your. The tour guide would start talking before the entire group was together. His words were slurred as if he was drunk. I was less than impressed and wish I hadn’t wasted my money on it.

Thank you for your review. Each tour guide has his or her own way of presenting the tour. However, I do take issue with your comment about there being 'nothing ghostly'. The Haunted History Ghost Tour receives rave reviews on a regular basis regarding the ghost stories as well as the presentation. I do apologize if your guide started talking before the group was all together. I'm sure he would have filled you in on anything you may have missed if it was important info regarding a story. However, I can guarantee you that your guide was NOT drunk. Perhaps he simply had a different speech delivery than what you may be used to. I am sorry that you feel that your money went to waste. SO...If you will be kind enough to contact me directly, I will be kind enough to send you a complimentary copy of our best selling book, 'New Orleans Ghosts, Voodoo, & Vampires.' The book is packed with all the ghost stories that you claim to have missed while in the tour.
