My cousin and I went on a smaller tour with only about 8 people, which was really nice as there were very large groups all around us that evening. Our tour guide was Hunter, and he had a lot of good historical knowledge and does a lot of his own research for his tour. It was really nice to go on a ghost tour and hear mostly history and stories than sensationalized stories with little real history. Hunter answered any questions and led us around the larger groups with ease. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour experience.
Let me begin by stating that our guide Carl was incredibly informative. There is a group of about 17 of us here from Texas on a bachelorette party so you can only imagine what he had to work with!! We had lots of questions and excitement as we all arrived only hours before. The tour lasted a little over an hour and a half with a short break during the tour. We got a large dose of history with some really creepy stories in the mix. I learned a whole lot about the city, culture, voodoo, and was legitimately creeped out all at the same time! I absolutely recommend this one and especially Carl.
Our tour with Michael Bill and was very enjoyable! He's an extremely good storyteller and glad we had him as our guide. He also went out of his way to make sure we were safe and knew our way during and after the tour. He gave us something to remember New Orleans with!

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 Ghosts of New Orleans Tour. You can also take a cab or a pedicab.
When we started to put together ideas for the Ghosts of New Orleans Tour we knew it had to be different than what is being offered by other companies out there. The lack of originality in the market surprised us. It seems as if everyone goes to the same haunted places, tells the same ghost stories. Most of the time history is thrown to the curb in exchange for a few more gory details. This isn’t what we wanted from the Ghosts of New Orleans Tour.
So, to start, we decided against not visiting most of the locations other ghost tour companies in New Orleans visit. This is especially important for our repeat customers. You don’t want to come to New Orleans to take a ghost tour only to find out you’re visiting the same haunted locations and hearing the same ghost stories as last time. Aside from a few staples in the New Orleans haunted landscape, like the LaLaurie Mansion, we decided to research new locations. And we are soo glad we did.
Some of the new locations on the Ghosts of New Orleans Tour are not visited by any other company. We spent weeks in the archives of Historical Societies and online databases uncovering the hidden haunted history of New Orleans. We came across true ghost stories, backed up by real historical research, that are soo crazy, soo spooky, that we only wish that what we uncovered wasn’t true. It is no wonder, after pouring over the first-hand accounts, the newspaper articles, that New Orleans is often called the most haunted city in America. We are proud to take our guests to these hidden haunted locations where the ghosts seem to be begging to be noticed by the living.
Another aspect of the Ghosts of New Orleans Tour that we knew we wanted to be different was the historical accuracy of our tours. By taking a few of the ghost tours in New Orleans, we were amazed by the amount of misinformation being presented. We take a lot of pride in our city, New Orleans. We all felt we would be doing New Orleans a big disservice by simply relying on hearsay and misrepresenting this city’s amazing, and dark history. Trust us, there is no reason to embellish New Orleans’ history to spook the crowds.
So, the Ghosts of New Orleans Tour is 100% historically accurate. And we are very proud of that fact. We understand that on a ghost tour you want to get that spine-tingling feeling, you want to walk the dark streets and alleyways of the French Quarter and feel the spookiness. However, you don’t have to sacrifice real history to accomplish this. The Ghosts of New Orleans Tour is easily one of the spookiest ghost tours in New Orleans, and the most historically accurate.
We also spent a lot of time working with our guide staff to ensure that the Ghosts of New Orleans haunted tour is presented in the best possible manner. I know I am completely biased, but I feel as if Ghost City Tours has some of the best tour guides in all of New Orleans. Entertaining, knowledgeable, and super friendly, you’ll quickly become good friends with your tour guide as you walk the streets of New Orleans on the Ghosts of New Orleans Tour.
