MAKE NO MISTAKE, if it doesn’t say HAUNTED HISTORY TOURS then IT ISN’T THE ORIGINAL Ghost Tours, Vampire Tours, Cemetery Tours, Scandal Tours, Garden District Tours, Voodoo Tours of New Orleans! These are the New Orleans tours you’ve heard about featured on A&E, History Channel, Discovery Channel, Sci Fi Channel, Fox Network, and recommended by The Travel Channel as THE NUMBER 1 THING TO DO IN NEW ORLEANS. Mildly theatrical, hugely historical, and thoroughly entertaining, Haunted History Tours offers a variety of daily and nightly tours that will leave you SPELLBOUND! Not only locally owned and operated but we are native New Orleanians so you are getting the history and the stories that were handed down through the generations. Haunted History Tours is the only company offering the best selling book, “New Orleans Ghosts, Voodoo, & Vampires,” and the popular documentary, “Journey Into Darkness, The Trilogy.” These tours are a MUST DO for anyone visiting or planning to visit New Orleans.
I cannot even explain how excellent this tour was. Drew was our guide for the walking tour of the Garden District. Now I called them a few days before our tour for a special reason. Now drew was incredibly informative, funny and really brought us into the history of the garden district. Now the reason I called them. I wanted to propose to my girlfriend in front of the Anne Rice mansion. The tour guide Drew called me to discuss the plan and even offered to take the photos for me. She said yes and this was an experience I’ll never forget. THANK YOU to HHT and Drew for being just great people and for being so cool and informative.
Three of us took the French Quarter Ghost Tour. We were very excited about this tour, but ended up being extremely disappointed. The guide was very nice, but his stories were so long and full of boring details that we lost interest during every story. He could have covered all of the information, along with the walk, in about 30 minutes. We felt that unnecessary details and long pauses were added for dramatic effect, which were not effective. We were told to take photos at a few different spots along the way because “at least one person in every group” would capture a ghost on our cameras. We weren’t surprised that this wasn’t the case. The ghost stories were not very interesting, the historical facts were flawed, and our guide threw in one very gory story about torture that was so hard to follow that none of can remember the ending, just that it was disgusting and definitely not scary. I am sure that a better story teller could have made this tour a success, but I would definitely recommend passing on this.
