Our tour guide Ben gave us a very knowledgeable history of the property and an account of his extensive paranormal experiences. We were given very good electronic voice recorders to use and a camcorder. I was also able to use my own camcorder that I brought with me. Ben explained the proper communication and questioning techniques that would be most effective with the spirits. The recorders were very sensitive allowing us to capture a distinctive EVP through the headphones. I also heard some very clear footsteps and numerous knocks in answer to specific questions from Ben. We had a great time, a great guide and a wonderful experience! I highly recommend Ghost City Tours!
We wanted to do something a little different than the typical walking tour of haunted places so we booked the 4 hour ghost hunting tour in the old servant quarters at 1022 Royal. While we did not really witness any paranormal events the night we went, Michael kept things interesting with his tales of the hauntings at that address as well as other french quarter history. I would recommend this to anyone for an interesting, kinda creepy night
Our guide, Ben, was OUTSTANDING and extremely knowledgeable! And, the chance to use the interactive ghost hunting equipment was incredible! Nobody in our group went away disappointed. We were definitely "not alone" in those rooms. A truly memorable experience that we plan to do again, during our next visit, and recommend to all of our friends. Definitely tops the local walking tours!
The Ungrateful Dead Tour starts in front of the Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes & Culture, which is located at 1010 Conti St, in the French Quarter. THIS TOUR DOES NOT START AT THE CEMETERY. Your Tour Guide will be waiting for you directly in front of the Museum.
If you are running late or need additional directions please call our office toll-free at 888-859-5375.
Parking in the French Quarter is at a premium. While you can take a chance and try for on-street parking, we highly suggest that you walk to the starting location of The Ungrateful Dead. The Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes & Culture and the cemetery are a quick 10-minute walk from almost anywhere in the French Quarter. You can also take a cab or a pedicab.
