Meet your guide in the heart of the French Quarter, New Orleans' oldest and most interesting neighborhood. This was a Native American gathering place, a swampy French colonial community of convicts, adventurers, and insane asylum inmates, and the arrival location of thousands of Africans forced into enslavement. And that was all in the first year! Since our founding, we have also been a robust port city, a pirate-run crime enterprise, the location of America's most notorious red-light district, and a haven for artists, writers, and musicians, with at least three wars at our doorstep and jazz rhythms in our hearts. Your guide will share a healthy mix of ghost stories and notorious crimes that are amazing because they are true! The Ax-Man who loved jazz? Evil Madame Lalaurie, the 19th Century socialite serial killer? The Trunk Murderer? The other Trunk Murderer (yes, we have two!)? A singing ghost of a beloved priest? An accordion-playing German girl who waits by the river? The World War I hero who was shot by his wife on Bourbon Street? The wine seller who got vengeance on the Mob? We know their stories and we love to tell them! You will love these stories and you will even learn a little about New Orleans. This tour is a favorite among those who believe in ghosts and skeptics alike, because everyone loves a good story. This is a walking tour through the French Quarter, for ages 12 and up only. You will cover about 1 mile in distance and the tour takes 1.5-2 hours. Your guide will send you a text message before the tour so you know who to look for and so you'll be able to ask questions later in your trip.


1.5-2 hour walking tour of the French Quarter, focusing on the ghost stories and true crime history of New Orleans.
