Great tour, terrible bar experience
Denise_H
, Jan 2022
Our tour guide, Claire, was very warm and friendly. Lots of fun stories to keep us entertained. The bar they took us to, however, had a terrible, rude bartender who was completely annoyed we even came in. I’d only do another tour with this company if this bar was skipped in the future.

Tour guide was informative and funny but not enough actual ghostly experiences. Probably would have like the Vampire Tour or Cemetary Tour or better yet the carriage ride tours.

Bad tour

What a bad experience!!! We did not like the Tourguides! They are stopping at a bar which takes already 1/3 of the time. No interesting information about haunted stories, instead many rules and advises how to behave during the tour. We cancelled the tour after 1 hour…
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you 'did not like the tour guides', however I feel the need to clarify a few of your comments. We take a 15 minute break during a 2 hour walking tour to allow our guests to use the restroom or grab a drink if they wish. Our Ghost Tour is actually packed with great information and haunted stories, as evidenced by the HUNDREDS of 5 Star reviews that we receive on a weekly basis. However, you wouldn't know that if (as you claim) you left the tour halfway through. And the only 'rules' that we explain on the tour are with respect to the French Quarter resident's quality of life issues, as the French Quarter is also a residential neighborhood.
