Dane was so great! Very patient with the kids. Very engaging. This was a great experience, especially for someone with younger kids. Definitely would recommend. Not only did he give friendlier accounts of some stories while still keeping it spooky, he was aware of the kids tiring out.

Great Family Tour!

We had a very enjoyable tour with our guide Dane. He was very entertaining and provided a great history of the city. The kids were engaged and talked about his stories days after. We ended our tour in front of Muriel's restaurant and had dinner there. It was really cool to be there after hearing the story behind the restaurant. It was very nice to be in a small tour with only our family. It allowed us to go at our own pace and stop frequently for questions and a more personal experience. This was highlighted even more by all the large tour groups passing by that seemed overcrowded and rushed.

Our favorite tour so far.

Dane was an absolute delight and made the history interesting and memorable with his voices and energy. The kids laughed at some of his stories the rest of the night mimicking Dane’s fun explanations. We saw beautiful buildings and heard their dark history. It was perfection- kids 12,10,8 and 3 adults- we all really enjoyed the evening stroll thru the quarter. We couldn’t believe how quickly 2 hours went by. The adults understood the more “adult” topics while the kids eagerly listened on. If you aren’t really into the “ghost” thing this is still perfect for your group you get a good dose of history, humor and spirit. Highly recommend Dane and would absolutely do the tour again. The kids and adults all really enjoyed it.

Mikko was a great guide. Very informative and entertaining. He is very well versed in not only the haunted history of Louisiana, but history goibg back as far as the revolutionary War. It was amazing and kid appropriate.

Loved Mikko, he was entertaining and funny…especially towards the kids! Keeping them involved always so that no one was ever bored or whining about the walking. Would definitely recommend this for anyone with kids still trying to learn more about the history of New Orleans!

Underwhelming Tour

While in NOLA we thought it would be fun to do a ghost tour with our kids. The majority of the reviews of this particular tour were 5 star, and all cited Melissa as a wonderful tour guide. So we were a go. Our guide was not Melissa, but Keynin, who started the tour by telling us he had 3 rules, one of which was to lower our expectations of what this tour would be so that we wouldn’t be disappointed. Who does that? Our tour was our family plus another one, with a total of 3 kids who were very intellectually curious. Keynin’s story telling style was a bit disjointed. He would start sentences and then say, “no, I’m not going to tell that story to you all” and then kept the tour moving which left us all feeling as though he was either leaving parts out or couldn’t remember certain aspects of the stories. It was bizarre. The other family commented on the same thing. Half way thru the tour there is an unannounced stop at the oldest bar in the south. And while that would have been fine, if it was an adults only tour, the kids weren’t allowed in the bar and there wasn’t another place for us to go, so we all just waited outside for 10 minutes for Keynin to take his break. This felt quite uncomfortable and unprofessional. As a tour guide, you should really know your audience. At the end of the tour, Keynin tells us that he accepts tips. As I am handing money to my husband, he sees it and stops mid sentence looking at us - again quite uncomfortable. We laughed about this all the way back to our hotel, so I guess there’s that. The stories weren’t scary or interesting, the kids were able to poke holes thru much of them and Keynin want able to answer many of their questions which left them feeling frustrated. I would not recommend this tour, maybe if you get Melissa, but the tour we went on left a lot to be desired.

As a family with 4 younger children this tour was perfect for getting a family friendly little glimpse of the spooky history that New Orleans is known for. My kids were nervous for this at first, but our guide Melissa had them warmed up right away and was very friendly.

Guide never showed up. We had to disappoint our little ones who were very excited about the tour. Maybe next time.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
You left before the tour's start time and received a refund for the tour before I got word of what was happening. The guide you were assigned to could not make it due to car trouble and I personally came and gave the tour myself with the other families, and I arrive exactly at 5 pm. Yes, check-in time is 15 mins before the tour begins, and I was late for that. I was two blocks away and ran down there as soon as I heard. We had a wonderful time. I am sorry this happened and that your little ones missed the tour. I hope you enjoyed your time in New Orleans.

Melissa at Unique NOLA Tours was amazing! She asked me upfront if there any topics I’d prefer not to be discussed in front of my child. It was 2 hours full of fun facts and legends. This company keeps groups small so everyone can enjoy!

Spooky and Fun walking tour!

We had a fabulous spooky family friendly 2 hour walking tour with our guide Melissa on Mother's Day weekend! The weather was great and we visited some awesome haunted sites including the Andrew Jackson Hotel, the Omni Hotel, Tableau, Muriel's, the LaLaurie Mansion and many more! We have kids aged 9 and 13 and both were interested and engaged and Melissa had really researched all the sites and stories. We made reservations for dinner at Muriel's after our tour and I highly recommend that too, so you can see the table set for the resident ghost that Melissa told us all about! There is even a seance room upstairs! The stories were just spooky enough to peak our interest but not too much to scare our 9 year old. The tour was safe, all wearing masks and wear comfortable shoes. Thanks for a great time!

Randy was our tour guide and did an amazing job! We had a large party with quite a few kids and he had patience and was very kind and entertaining. He gave us the history and gory details but definitely kept it kid friendly and made us laugh often. He knows his way around, would highly recommend this tour!
