Group was too large, and the tour was not really that spooky. It could have been a smaller group and a little bit more interactive to make it a better experience.More

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave great history of the jail. I could not believe I wasn’t scared. I felt nauseated the whole time but not scared. So weird!

We really enjoyed our tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and told a lot of interesting stories. He talks really fast so we missed a few things, but overall it was great!

Great stories, great guide in a town you just can’t beat. Got some great history, a nice walk, with some voodoo history, pirate history, and some good civil war stories. Would Definitely recommend.

Tours are limited to 20 by law. You can always call and ask how many tickets have been sold. They are a good company and do a good job so reserve early!
