Best 2 hours I've spent in NOLA

I've done this 4 times over 10 years, always something new and different and fun. Quality of.tjemtouray vary based upon the individual guides--this is not a canned/scripted tour. Our group was led by Adriadne and she was fantastic. Don't expect to see ghosts, bit do expect to be entertained by ghostly tales based on hints of truth and plenty of history. Note that the tour usually includes a stop and a great historical bar that makes a delicious vicious hurricane, and while it's fine to drink on the tour this is not a pub crawl.

Be careful on this tour!

I was taking my daughter and her friends on a senior trip and they wanted to go on the tour. I made sure it was still light out for safety and booked it. The tour guide did a good job telling the stories but he was drinking the entire time. The tour took a break at a haunted bar and we were told a hurricane there was excellent. I bought one drink and it tasted odd. Five to ten minutes later I could barely walk or talk. I did not really hear the rest of the tour. Later, a doctor agreed I had been roofied. We were dropped off at a place different from where we started. As I had been roofied, I was unable to get us back to the hotel. Luckily I had mature, smart teenage girls with me who did not panic and were able to get us back. It was extremely disturbing. The girls told me the tour guide told them not to tell me his name. Be careful in NOLA if you travel and do not do this tour as a solo adult. I noticed prior to getting drugged a man following the tour. He was never near my drink. But multiple people can be involved. I never saw anyone but the bartender near my drink. Overall, I give it a 1 but my teens enjoyed it, so I gave it a 2.

The tour guide Charmaine was very informative and friendly. We would have enjoyed this more , however there was a drunk young man who kept interrupting the guide which made it difficult to follow the stories. She did her best to continue on even with his interruptions
