Visit the Most Haunted Places in New Orleans

When it comes to ghosts and hauntings, New Orleans is a city that few others can rival. New Orleans’ ghosts, voodoo, hoodoo, and hauntings helped shape this haunted city into what it is today.

Here at Ghost City, we like pushing the envelope, offering tourists and locals alike a chance to join our Guides and journey into areas of the French Quarter that are not always the places where tourists dare to venture. All of the locations we visit on our Ghost Tours are carefully chosen and researched. Telling the true story about our ghosts and hauntings is the backbone of Ghost City. We don't stoop to telling stories about Vampires and other nonsense. However, you will hear the authentic paranormal history of New Orleans, our local legends and folklore, and first-hand accounts of hauntings.

On our New Orleans Ghost Tours, we’ll take you on a trip into our haunted history, introducing you to the ghosts which still haunt the living today.

The haunted LaLaurie Mansion

The Ghosts of the LaLaurie Mansion

Perhaps the most infamous haunted house in New Orleans, the LaLaurie Mansion has been rumored to be haunted for almost 200 years. So it goes without saying that it is a very popular stop on our Ghost tours!

You'll hear the story of Delphine LaLaurie and her slaves. Many people think they know the real story - but the truth is stranger than fiction. You'll hear it all on our tours.

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand that you may have some questions about our Ghost Tours - and you don't want to call. Below you can find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we get about our tours.

Are these walking tours?

ALL of our Ghost Tours are Walking Tours. Unlike our other cities, walking tours are the only kind of Ghost Tours in New Orleans' French Quarter. Due to the tight streets, there are no ghost tours by buses or hearses like you can find in other cities. Don't worry - walking tours are the best way to experience a city's haunted anyway!

  • Walking Tours allow you to immerse yourself in the stories we tell.
  • Walking is good for you, and it is a great way to walk off that amazing dinner you just had!
  • You're not crammed into a vehicle, almost certainly squished in next to someone you'd rather not be squished up against.

Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are ghost tour companies which offer their tickets for sale on Groupon. And if you're not worried about the quality of the tour you're getting - you can certainly spend some time on Groupon or Living Social and find tickets.

We know that our experiences are of the highest quality, with thousands of 5-star reviews from tourists and locals who have enjoyed them. Also, we often sell out - especially on the weekends and on Holidays. There is simply no reason why we'd sell our tours on Groupon.

Some locations allow us to come in; most don't. Many of the locations that you'll be visiting are private residences. Obviously, the residents would not be happy about us coming into their homes. Therefore we do not go into most of the locations we visit.

If you're looking for a Ghost Tour where you can enter the building itself, we highly recommend our Haunted Pub Crawl. Every stop on the Pub Crawl allows you to enter the building - and sometimes even into areas that are off access for the general public.

You can reschedule your Ghost Tour, or receive a complete refund, if you do so at least 24 hours prior to the start of your Tour. After that, all sales are final. If you need assistance, please call us at 855-999-9026.

When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.

  • Ages 0-5: We do not charge anything for anyone 5 or under. They get to attend our tours for free!
  • Ages 6-11: This is considered a child ticket as defined by the city of Savannah.
  • Ages 12+: This age range is considered an adult ticket.

Keep in mind, some of our tours are simply for ages 16+ or 21+ only. For those tours there is only one ticket type you can choose from.

All of our Tours run 7 days per week. In addition, we often open up additional time slots for our tours as the original time sells out. If you want to book a tour Ghost City Tours will ensure that we are able to fit you in a tour. We still advise you to purchase your tickets as soon as you know which tour you want to take.

All of our tours talk about Voodoo. While our Ghost Tours are not voodoo specific tours, all of them touch on the subject of voodoo and how it has impacted New Orleans. After all, New Orleans is home to Marie Laveau, probably the most famous Voodoo Queen in the history of the World.

If you want to learn more about Voodoo while on our tours, simply ask your guide! Our Tour Guides are all very educated and are very knowledgable about voodoo, the history of voodoo, and the role is has played in New Orleans' history.

Ghost City Tours does not, and will not, offer Vampire Tours. While we understand that there are people who are interested in Vampire folklore, the reality is that Vampires, as the way other tour companies in New Orleans portray them, do not exist. Therefore, Ghost City does not offer Vamprie Tours. We couldn't sleep at night knowing that we're telling people lies and made-up stories, all the while pretending we're telling the truth.

We take a lot of pride in doing the research needed to give you a ghost tour that is still spooky, yet historically accurate. So, you won't be finding Vampires on our Tours.
