Full description
Discover the historic and haunted French Quarter and learn more about New Orleans' savage past on a 90-minute tour through the Vieux Carre. Visit the real buildings and homes where these horrors took place, with a dedicated, licensed entertainer and historian telling the stories and hauntings of the eerily creepy history of the oldest sector of the city. Hear the real story and timeline behind the Lalaurie Mansion, Marie Laveau and everything that wasn't explained in American Horror Story, including which celebrity later went on to purchase this mansion and arguably "lost his mind" while living there. As a bonus, find out which celebrities own homes in the French Quarter, where the scenes from famous movies were filmed and who loves this city so much they purchased a mausoleum to be buried in. Meet your guide at a central location in the French Quarter at a haunted bar where you will have an exclusive drink discount, and since you're in New Orleans, you can take the drink with you. As you make your way through the creepiest locations, stop at the half-way point, at the rumored oldest building in America that still serves alcohol, for a drink and bathroom break. Finish your tour in the infamous alley where the Pirate's used to come for a glass of rum and feel free to ask your guide for recommendations and directions to the nightlife hotspots, cafes and restaurants nearby.

We had a great time hearing the stories our guide told us regarding the history and gruesome occurrences in the French Quarter. Our group consisted of ages 23, 24, 45, 49 and we all had fun. FYI: The site says "wheelchair accessible" but the sidewalks are very hard to navigate in a wheelchair due to all the cracks and holes.

We spent half the tour sitting in a room in a bar not walking. And literally only stopped at one bar. Guide was rude to others.
