COVID-19 Update

We are open for business! Ghost City Tours is following guidelines set forth by not only federal agencies, but the guidelines set forth by local government as well.

We have taken steps to ensure that our tours are a great option for anyone looking for something to do in New Orleans. First, we have reduced the size of our Tour Groups dramatically. This means that there are less people in our groups and you have room to spread out. In addition, we have modified our tour routes to avoid areas where crowds gather.

We strongly believe that you are in no more danger taking a tour, and probably even less, than you are in any other public place. However, if you have concerns, we encourage you to book with Ghost City Tours once this passes.
