Twilight Tour- Hauntings for Tweens (8 - 12 y.o.)

Twilight Tour- Hauntings for Tweens (8 - 12 y.o.)

star-5
5
Our Twilight Tour was created for upper elementary aged kids- those ready for deeper questions, critical thinking, and curiosity about the "what-ifs". Like our Spooky Tour, we focus on the real history, documented accounts, and actual experiences witnessed on tours. However, the Twilight Tour digs deeper than the Spooky Tour. The stories are more detailed with more opportunities to interact with the spirit realm. The tour is interactive- kids will never be put on the spot but encouraged to try something new, something they won't soon forget. New Orleans is a magical, mysterious city. On this tour for 8 - 12 year old kids, they will leave intrigued, enchanted, and perhaps a little spooked. Our tour is unique because it is kid friendly: no violence, no gore, nor "adult" topics and language. We keep it clean!

The Badly Behaved Women Who Made New Orleans Tour

Hear 300 years of history of vice and red light districts in New Orleans, and all that's not fit for print! » Small groups: 15 guest max » Suggested cocktails » Fun extras: historical images, a take-home Polaroid of the group, and more! France shipped women from the brothels and prisons to the colonies in the 1720s, sending them to Ursulines nuns for 'correction'. Instead, many hung their red lanterns out back of town, and created the most thriving red light district in the hemisphere. Gov. Bienville complained “Whatever the vigilance exercised upon them, they could not be restrained.” In Storyville, our turn-of-the-20th-century red light district, madams decked in diamonds reigned in 'palaces of sin'. Some were so rich and powerful they committed murder and got off with no charges (one killed a U.S. Senator!). Take home a piece of this amazing and scandalous history you'll never forget.
