This tour was so awesome and informative! Just the right amount of history and creepy! Carolyn was so knowledgeable and has a great personality!! You can tell how much she loves New Orleans and it’s people and history!! Highly recommend!Taree M. 5
This tour is all about who your tour guide is and our guide, Christian, did not let us down. The tour took us to interesting spots around the French Quarter such as the Ursuline Convent, the LaLaurie House (previously owned by Nicolas Cage), and Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau's house - to name a few. We came away with not only a few "haunted tales" but a nice history of the early days in New Orleans.Debbie D. 5
I really enjoyed this tour. Get ready to spend some money on drinks as they’re definitely not cheap ($8 for a beer). But the history and trivia were really cool. We had Emily as our tour guide and it was pretty interesting!Crystal B. 5

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.
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.Learn More
For over 100 years, it has been rumored that a mass killing took place in this French Quarter residence. However, did this actually happen?
Today, the building called the Sultan's Palace is a collection of apartments - with many of the residents reporting supernatural and ghostly happenings. Who is haunting the Sultan's Palace? What are the current residents experiencing? Learn more about the Sultan's Palace on our haunted tours.Learn More
Located in the heart of the French Quarter, Jackson Square has long been the center of the French Quarter, a gathering place for her residents. Today, Jackson Square is home to many of the ghosts which call the French Quarter home.
Most of our ghost tour visit Jackson Square. Your Tour Guide will tell you the amazing and sometimes gruesome history of Jackson Square - while you stand in the place where the haunted history took place.
When our guests come to New Orleans, they often want to stay in a haunted hotel to accompany their Ghost Tour. We highly recommend the Andrew Jackson Hotel, located in the heart of the French Quarter.
The Ghost City team has verified the Andrew Jackson as being haunted. During our Ghost Hunts at the Hotel, we encountered numerous ghosts and had a lot of paranormal activity happen to us!Learn More
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!
Can I buy tickets for your Ghost Tours through Groupon?
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.
Is this a Ghost Tour where we go into Haunted Places?
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.
Once I purchase tickets, can I get a refund?
All ticket sales are final. Like any other performance, and yes, our Tours are performances, we can only admit a limited number of people. Therefore, we cannot give you a refund should you decide not to attend.
However, we're not a bunch of unreasonable monsters. We allow our guests to reschedule their tickets to another date or time as long as you do it at least 12 hours in advance.
For your family ghost tours, what is the age of a child?
When it comes to buying tickets for our tours, the following classes of tickets are based on age.
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.
What days of the week are your Ghost Tours available for?
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.
Do Ghost City Tours offer Voodoo Tours?
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.
Does Ghost City Tours offer Vampire Tours?
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.
