Wowwwwwwwwwwwww Stacey was not on her A-game tonight for the ghost tour. I had such high expectations, as I've been on fantastic free tours in other cities, but this was a train wreck of a tour. From starting 15 minutes late and having rude a...More

Stacey was a brilliant guide. Lots of fascinating stories and plenty of character. Would highly recommend this tour. Pay $2.50 per person deposit then give what you think is appropriate.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
