Michael Bill was our ghost tour guide. It was obvious from the start he had a rich knowledge of the historical hauntings in the French Quarter. He told fun and exciting stories and had real examples of paranormal activity on his phone. He really wowed the crowd!

We really enjoyed the stories that Trevor shared with us on the tour. There were storms in the area that provided a spooky backdrop for the experience! With about 20 people in the group, I was worried we might not be able to hear but Trevor's voice projected really well. He managed the group with professionalism.

Does not handle covid precautions well

I honestly didn’t enjoy my tour guide as much. Michael was funny but it was very hard to follow his tour as he was never as detailed as I would have liked about where we should be looking or where he’s pointing. The company also booked almost 60 people on this tour where it had to be split into two groups, and even then, there were 28 people in my group...and he walked while talking, so the people in the back never heard him...also, so much for Covid precautions...
icon Response from Host , May 2021
I'm so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us. Our company does take COVID regulations very seriously, which is why we limit our tour sizes to the city requirements. We'd love to try to fix this for you-- please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com. Thanks so much for your feedback!
