Wasn’t worth the money

Tour guide seemed a little drunk yet she was informative. It wasn’t advertised that it was a 2hr walking tour of just listening to stories, while we heard different stories being tons right next to us by other tour guides so it made it UNBELIEVABLE! I recommend more hands on activities and to bring comfortable shoes
icon Response from Host , Sep 2020
Lucil, we're so sorry to hear you did not enjoy your experience with us. We advertise this as a "2 hour walking tour with live commentary" it is meant to be a walk through the dark history of the French Quarter. If you're looking for something more "hands on" I'd recommend a haunted house or theme park. I do apologize, again, that the experience wasn't what you expected-- I'd be happy to try to fix this for you. Please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com to discuss further. Thank you!

Witches brew tours: I consider myself a New Orleans haunted history buff, and I still learned about new dark stories and new iconic characters from the city’s layered lore. Thus is the quintessential introduction to NOLA and is a must for any first time visitor.

Our Tour Guide was Chrissy, and we had an AMAZING time! It was hot and humid and we were all sweating, but she was such a good story teller that it was hardly noticeable! Our kids are still talking about how AWESOME the experience was!
