Review of New Orleans Ghost Tours

This is a comparison post of the best New Orleans ghost tours, but also vampire, voodoo, haunted houses and haunted pub crawl tours in New Orleans (including our own pay-what-you-like ghost and voodoo tours).  See prices, schedules and a description of what you can expect from the each tour.  No matter what kind of spooky activity you’re looking for, chances are that you’ll find something to enjoy on the list below.

New Orleans (NoLA) is ‘rumored’ to have a strong presence of ghosts and spirits. The city’s reputation for its connection to the supernatural has led authors like Anne Rice (“Interview with the Vampire”) to set their story in NoLA.  Some episodes of the hit series “True Blood” take place in NoLA and for those old enough to remember,  the James Bond classic “Live and Let Die” weaved the Voodoo culture of NoLA into its plot. Why just read a book or see a movie to merely get a sense of the macabre when you can take a tour and walk around in it?!?

Haunted History Tours

This company’s French Quarter Ghosts & Legends Tour has caught the eye of several television programs including History Channel, Discovery Channel and A&E.
