Our tour guide gave us a history lesson instead of a fun tour I paid for a ghost tour and heard all about Andrew Jackson being a terrible guy and architecture of the buildings how voodoo people are nice and Catholics are bad I felt victimized as a Catholic
icon Response from Host , Jan 2021
Hi Margaret! I believe we spoke already. All of our stories are based in the crazy, wonderful history of our city. Your guide, Graham, is a 5-star guide with years of experience and knowledge to impart-- I do apologize that you felt victimized as a Catholic, but everything Graham told you about Voodoo being a gentle Religion that's been portrayed incorrectly by Hollywood is correct. Your partial refund is on its way to you-- we hope to see you the next time you are in New Orleans!
