Wasn’t what we expected

We did not care for our storyteller. He was long winded and seemed to talk in circles. The group was too large and it was a strain to hear everything. It took so long during each stop that we grew tired and left at the halfway rest mark.

Looking at the house owned by Nicholas cage. The guide was good. But things could have been better. Maybe adding some more stories may help. Some better speaking system..May help for sure. Overall. Good and would recommend it

Chris is the man!
Keith_A
, May 2022
Chris was amazing. Knowledgeable, funny, and great awareness of not only himself but of the group. He ensured everyone was safe during the tour and engaged us all for the entire duration. And even when there were external noises that were overpowering he expertly worked with the noise not missing a beat. Great tour, definitely would recommend to anyone who has an interest in voodoo, ghost, vampires and the paranormal activity In the city of New orleans.

Chris is clearly a believer and his knowledge and passion shone through in his presentation. We enjoyed the details he added to the stories. He should also be commended for soldiering on even when some of our group members were loud and rude.

Nothing but REGRETS.
Jeremy_R
, May 2022
The most memorable part was when the guide cursed a lady out for asking if it was the tour. Or when he repeatedly cursed, forgot what he was saying, or said “actual “ and “actually “ in every single sentence. We ditched less than halfway through when he said to break for drinks. Worst experience ever, never go here. No cemeteries, just a couple of ghost stories( that weren’t even told right) and VERY rude employees.

This stuff is right up my alley and I had a fabulous time learning about the French Quarter and all it’s rich history—especially about all the spirits and history behind them, vampires and voodoo. MJ was the BEST guide and was extremely knowledgeable and a fabulous storyteller as well!! Would definitely recommend anything she does! It was a ton of fun and many stops throughout the Quarter so I would recommend doing this towards the beginning of your trip so you can get a feel of how the streets and neighborhood is set up and where things are so you can go back and visit or spend more time
