Jennifer Raven was excellent & very engaging. I was sure it wouldn’t be creepy at all because of all the people around & well lit areas, but she took us into some not as well lit areas & told some really creepy stories I’m still thinking about hours later. Highly recommend!

Where's the haunt and spook and oh yeah vampires.
Lonnie_T
, Aug 2022
The tour wasn't spooky nor haunting. Now knowing what voodoo is, you shouldn't make it apart of the tour. Either keep it Hollywood or take it off the tour. The vampire part wasn't enough. Could've given us time to go into the Vampyre store.

Hi Lonnie- I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience with us. We aren't allowed to take tour guests inside Boutique, otherwise we'd be happy to do so!

I purchased the tickets on you add for the Voodoo and Vampire tour at 1:30. The pick up place was wrong and the address was incorrect also when we found the red booth the lady said no tours at 1:30 on Saturday our tour was at 8:00 pm east of time and money.

Hi there! I believe you posted this to the wrong tour company-- we don't have a red booth! Please remove and post to the correct company, thanks!

Not what expected.
Kimberlee_D

Guide was very nice and gave some good stories. Felt the groups need to be spaced out more. Some guides talking over other guides. Had 3 groups all reporting at the same time and the. Just divided up. Getting dropped off at end of tour 5-7 blocks from where started was horrible. You think you’re going to make another stop or two on way back and all the sudden, this is the end of the tour goodbye! Horrible.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Hi Kim-- I'm sorry to hear this! Unfortunately we have no control over the crowds of the Quarter-- and it looks as though y'all booked on one of the busiest nights of the year! We do leave our guests a few blocks from the start, but in a safe part of the Quarter and we are always happy to help assist our guests in finding where they need to go, or even walk them back to the start if that's what they want. We do appreciate your feedback-- if you'd like to provide more feedback on how we could make this a 5-star experience, please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com. Thanks again!

If you are into history with a little bit of gruesomely stories this is for you!! Some stories where familiar but were told with great detail right where it happened, some were new to me. Our guide was amazing!!! He was very articulated, alluring man who could speak different accents making the stories fun and interesting the whole tour!
