It always makes our day when we can go above and beyond to make our guests happy. The other day we had a group of 4 people who were coming into New Orleans from San Antonio Texas. It was a father, mother and their two grown children. It turns out that it was Dad’s birthday and everyone wanted to do something special for him. Being a huge fan of ghosts and the paranormal, everyone thought that a ghost tour in New Orleans would be the perfect present.
After speaking with them on the phone they decided that they didn’t want to join our public tour, they wanted something a bit more intimate. We knew that a private tour would be perfect for them and we were thrilled to offer this option. We chatted more about what they had in mind and put together that "something special" for their birthday celebration. So, they bought their tickets, received their email confirmation and were off to meet their guide, Michael.
For over 2 hours, our wonderful guests explored the most haunted locations in the French Quarter with Michael. To say we took extra steps to make sure their ghost tour was memorable would be an understatement. We called some of our friends at various haunted locations along our tours routes and secured private entrance to explore the interiors of these locations. What a treat!
When you book a private ghost tour, we also take the time to get to know what locations you’re most interested in. It turns out that the family really wanted to learn more about the LaLaurie Mansion. We made sure to include this stop on their ghost tour. At the end of their private tour, Michael and his guests wrapped things up with a drink at Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop, one of the most haunted bars in New Orleans.
A few days later, we received a lovely email from the family thanking us for the amount of time we spent making sure their ghost tour was the best it could possibly be. It was the highlight of their trip to New Orleans, their words, not ours!
