Haunted History Tours
If you are a history buff or just love a good scare, then consider one of the Haunted History Tours. These are walking tours led by one of a number of area experts who specialize in the history of ghosts, voodoo and haunted places. Featured attractions include the Saint Louis Cemetery Number One and areas related to voodoo and witchcraft, as well as French Quarter locations that have had documented ghost sightings. There is nothing quite comparable to a good ghost story outside the cemetery gates at dusk.
This tour is so nice. The tour guides are so well informed and proffesional. I was very impressed by their knowledge. Carla is an amazing guide. She is also very intelligent, well articulated and great about going into detail should you have any questions. I learned so much about New Orleans history while taking this tour. Bonus: the poyboy shop in the Irish Channel is Amazing! The people in the area are so friendly and make you feel welcome. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!
Went on 2 tours in the same day:
First the Cemetery Tour: This is a 1 time tour and it is very informative as I feel like I actually learned alot.
At night was the Haunted/Ghost tour: I would go on this tour again. Great stories and fun tour. I think I may have had nightmares that night after this tour.
We had Ernie as our tour guide for both tours and I would recommend asking for him.
I love this tour! I've been on the tour probably half a dozen times. Usually more than once a visit. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and have enough drama background to keep it interesting and just spooky enough. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who goes to New Orleans.
Went on Midian's haunted history tour, and he proved to be one of the best tour guides I have ever encountered--this coming from a 13-year veteran of tourgiving at the Baker Hotel-Mineral Wells. Recommended. ***** Robin Fletcher, Vis. Asst. Prof. Texas WOman's University
This tour was kind of ho-hum, maybe it was the tour guide. He did not speak very loud, the stories were not interesting and captivating. The only one was that was cool was the story about the general and his ballroom. Some of the information he told us was not quite accuarte. I was kind of bummed, I have been on tours in Charleston, Gettsyburg, and Savannah so I have others to compare this to.
I also had Mideon when I went on a Haunted History Tour. He was very informative and made it seem spooky even though I went on the tour during the day and it was raining. I actually got a picture of a ghost at one of the places that we visited.. It was AWESOME!! I can not wait to go back again!!
Great night tour of the French Quarter. Many haunted hotels and residences. General Beauregard's house is on the way. Also, stories of "feuds" that turned deadly, and the influence of rich people in the Quarter and the things they tried to get away with. Extremely informative. The tour guides are very well versed and only relate stories they know are true. Try to go with the Tour Guide named Mideon. Very cool.
