Voyage through the historic streets of the New Orleans French Quarter where you will be transported back in time to learn about five infamous Butchers that helped make the Big Easy what it is today.


  • Visit the home of one of the country's most notorious serial killers
  • Learn about the former slave who became Louisiana's first Executioner
  • Hear about the most heinous crime in modern New Orleans history


Big Easy Butchers is a first-of-its-kind storytelling and true crime experience combining the historic and spooky setting of the New Orleans French Quarter with a narrative-focused tour adventure that is sure to leave visitors transfixed even days after your tour is concluded. Behind historic Jackson Square is where you'll meet the tour's first butcher, The Executioner. You'll hear the terrifying story about the former slave who worked as the Louisiana Settlement's first paid executioner. You'll also visit the site of an early French Quarter fire that devoured everything in its path where you'll meet the tour's second butcher, The Priest. Not far from Jackson Square, you'll visit the sight of one of the city's most heinous and unsettling crimes where you'll learn about the tour's third butcher, The Cannibal. Right off the city's most raucous party street, you'll discover one of New Orleans' most infamous sons, someone who changed the trajectory of, not just New Orleans but, the entire United States for centuries to come. It's here you'll meet our next butcher, The Assassin. Just down the street from the Old Ursuline Convent, you'll visit the alleged home of one of the country's most notorious serial killers where you'll learn about the tour's fifth Butcher, The Axeman.
