Ms. Carrie was VERY knowledgeable entertaining and kept you interested. We booked our tour the same day however if you can book a day ahead so you get the time you want. You have to arrive a half hour ahead ( they don’t tell you that) or you will not get to go. Read the arrival and departure section. Wear comfortable shoes you are going to walk over a mile.

Our tour guide did not use the proper sensitivity when referring to native and enslaved people. It is not appropriate to say “red” in regard to Native Americans.

Spooky Tour

The storys were great, wish the tour guide had a microphone because I feel like we missed stuff as we were walking.

I'm so sorry that you couldn't hear your guide well. We, unfortunately, are not allowed to be amplified in any way as it is against city code. We'll make sure to let our guides know to speak up. Thank you so much for your feedback!
Great tour

Christy was a great tour guide! She handled a woman in our group who was rude & heckling from the moment the tour started. Once that settled the tour was informative & fun. She knew her history & was humorous & intelligent in her delivery of the info.

Christy handles ghostly spirits every night in the spooky French Quarter, she doesn't seem to have any trouble handling a heckler, lol. We are all very happy to hear you had such a great time. Thanks very much.
