Explore New Orleans' French Quarter on a Guided Ghost Tour
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. 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.
Our haunted New Orleans Tours are a perfect combination of New Orleans’ better known haunted locations and some off the beaten path locations that other tour companies neglect. You will get to go to the LaLaurie Mansion and hear the real story behind the hauntings there, and you’ll also get to hear about secret brothels and hidden haunted treasures that New Orleans is notoriously known for.

Yes. Since all of our ghost tours in New Orleans take place in the French Quarter, walking is the only way to go. Nobody offers driving ghost tours in the French Quarter due to traffic and the fact that many streets are shut-off at night for walking traffic.
Don't worry, our tours are very leisurely paced. The longest tour route we offer is just over 1 mile in length, with most of them being around 3/4 or a mile.
Yes, all of our ghostly journeys are completely guided! Our Tour Guides are professionals at guiding tourists (and locals too) through the streets of the French Quarter. Most of them are locals who have dedicated their lives to telling the stories of New Orleans' haunted history.
With the exception of the Haunted Pub Crawl, The Cemetery Tour and the New Orleans Ghost Hunting Experience, all of our tours are pet-friendly. We are even listed on Trips With Pets, so, feel free to bring your well-behaved pet out for the tour!
Yes, since New Orleans allows anyone of legal drinking age to walk around the French Quarter with their drinks, feel free to bring a drink along for the tour. Just make sure it is in a plastic cup and nobody will hassle you. On most of the tours we offer, we also stop at a bar for a restroom break, so feel free to pick one up there too.
Yes, our tours run rain or shine. In the rain, it seems like New Orleans' haunted history comes to life just a little bit more. In the rare event that the weather is going to be on the severe side we may have to cancel a tour. If we do this, you'll have the chance to reschedule your tour, or you'll receive a full refund.
If you have children, our Ghosts of New Orleans Tour is the one you want to take. Your children will have a great time learning about the phantoms which play games with the living, here in New Orleans.
Our Killers and Thrillers Ghost Tour is adults only because it deals with mature content. It isn't because it is super scary. (You may find it so, though). In addition, we have found that many of our guests appreciate the option of going on a tour where there are no children because it is a more enjoyable experience for them.
The Haunted Pub Crawl is an adults only ghost tour because, well, it is a tour of bars and pubs. Those establishments would frown upon us if we showed up with children in tow.
Our Haunted Pub Crawl does go into numerous haunted buildings. Our Ghosts of New Orleans Tour and Killers and Thrillers Tour do not venture into any of the buildings we visit. Why? Most of the buildings are private residences. It doesn't matter which tour company you choose, nobody has access to them.
When it comes to taking a ghost tour, few things are more disappointing than finishing your tour and realizing that everything you were told was made up. Too many companies in New Orleans do this. Here at Ghost City, all of our tours are 100% historically accurate. This means you can expect to hear the real haunted history about New Orleans' most haunted locations. You'll also learn a great deal about the non-haunted history of New Orleans along the way.
All of our haunted walks are carefully researched by the staff of Ghost City Tours. Working with the Historical Society and other great resources, we have uncovered some incredible stories that are previously unknown to the New Orleans Ghost Tour community. We have also been able to verify, and in some cases correct, the history and stories associated with New Orleans’ most haunted locations.
