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.

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 which are not always the places where tourists dare to venture. All of the locations we visit on our Ghost Tours are carefully choosen 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 locals 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..

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. To FEEL the energy which our ghosts give off, you have to be in the actual places where the haunting takes place. Imagine walking through a haunted alley with all of the lights out, or standing on what was once a battlefield. Are you already feeling the tingles up your spine?

  • 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.

Can I buy tickets for your Ghost Tours through Groupon?

Ghost City has never sold Groupon vouchers - and we never will. There are 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.

How do I purchase tickets for a Trolley Ghost Tour or a Hearse Ghost Tour?

There are a few options to take a ghost tour by vehicle. In Savannah, you can choose from a Trolley Ghost Tour or even one in a hearse.

If you're interested in taking one of these trolley ghost tours or a hearse ghost tour you'll have to go to those companies' websites and buy from them. We believe that walking tours are the best way to experience paranormal activity in Savannah.

We understand that you may have your heart set on riding around the haunted streets of Savannah in a Hearse or Trolley - but you cannot do this from Ghost City. If you want a paranormal experience that is truly spooky, Ghost City is the way to go.

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.

  • 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.

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 you 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.

What about 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.

Purchasing tickets for our Ghost Tours

You can purchase your tickets online, or by phone. In either case, you'll receive your tickets immediately via email. You must buy your tickets in advance.

St. Louis Cemetery, where we also offer a New Orleans Cemetery Tour

Does Ghost City only offer Ghost Tours?

While Ghost Tours are what we are known for, Ghost City Tours also offers a New Orleans Cemetery Tour.

Daily, you can join our talented and entertaining tour guides as they explore the beautiful lanes of St. Louis Cemetery #1. While this is not a ghost tour, it is highly educational and a great time!
