Henry is fantastic. Excellent tour.

Henry was absolutely fantastic! I’m so glad I got out into his group, he was not only very knowledgeable and detailed in his tour, but he was so funny and had a great music selection on the bus. I had my group on a Wednesday, so if you happen to book on a Wednesday night around 11pm, maybe you will be lucky and get Henry too.

Highly recommend for fun night out with the ghosts!

We had a good time with our tour guide Fernando! I was impressed with the tour company before the tour even began; they are very organized and keep great communication. We were running late from dinner and I called to alert them, and the tour company assured it was no problem and they held the bus for us (we were just a couple minutes behind). We were even able to grab a drink at the bar where we met before we took off. Fernando was very educational, very funny, and very genuine. I felt like we were getting an insider's guide to old NOLA. Both cemetery stops were beautiful, and the dowsing rods experience was unique. I am a skeptic but I have to attest, I believe we were communicating with a bona fide spirit that night! The pit stop at Morning Call was a perfect "Lagniappe" as they say, getting a frozen Irish Coffee and a hot beignet was the perfect way to top off the night!

Our tour guide Randall was phenomenal! He was very informative and made sure everyone had laughter with his tour. We learned a lot about the burial process in New Orleans and why they are buried above ground. That part was very interesting. However, he scared us with the information about “sneezing in a cemetery” since two people sneezed lol. We also stopped at a cafe that sells beignets, hot and fresh. The tour was overall a great tour. You should book it.

A turn of events…..

I came to NOLA with my family for a birthday trip and this was the last activity before we had to go home. The bus driver Kendall had a pretty strong personality off the bat but we just bypassed it and enjoyed each other’s company. The tour seemed pretty quick being as we only had like 5 minutes in each location to roam, but it was interesting. After the last stop, the key was given to one of my family members and he lightheartedly sat in the drivers seat and then went back to his seat. Kendall seemed fine with that at first still making some joking comments and then upon exiting the bus, he went off on us calling us disrespectful and saying my cousin played ‘mind games’ with him and did it with bad intentions when that was NOT the case at all. My cousin was completely wrong in doing what he did and we all told him it wasn’t okay. However the way the situation was dealt with was super unprofessional..from the arguing, displaying of his weapon in the vehicle, it was too much. A night of laughter and jokes ended in yelling and an argument amongst the whole group which was super unfortunate. He did not have to escalate the situation and could've spoken one on one without causing a scene.

Fun but Disappointed
Tiffany_F

I was really looking forward to this tour, I liked the byob, comfortable bus, cool cemetery, the tour guide was nice and interesting. But not really a ghost tour…. We were disappointed, it’s more of a night cemetery tour. You go to two cemeteries (which were interesting to visit, we were given metal sticks to communicate with spirits at the second one). You stop at a place to go the bathroom and eat beignets… that seemed like a waste of time to me. We wished for more ghost stories not generalities. I would not do this again and felt it was a Waste of money

The tour was awful. The guide went off on long, annoying tangents that had nothing to do with the subject matter. We ended up taking an Uber back early.
