I moved to New Orleans in August, and it took me until april to take this tour. Though the city is crawling with ghost tours, the very very best one you could possibly take is with the tour guide Orion. He was a theatre and history major, spends much of his time in New Orleans, and knows the city so well that he could stop at any random corner and point out something historical, big or small.
He is likewise so revered as a guide that other members of the tour had gone with him multiple times, and would urge me to listen to Orion more closely, as he is extremely knowledgeable.
Not only is Orion knowledgeable, but the man is just straight up fun. He tells his stories in varying tones, pulling you in to listen. He puts the right amount of theatricality, darkness, fun, seriousness, voodoo, magic, vampires, ghosts, and history into his tours so you are left both enlightened and burning with further questions. Lucky for you, Orion is extremely friendly and will answer any of your questions to the best of his ability.
Could not recommend this ghost tour high enough. As a resident of New Orleans, I've seen lots and lots of ghost tours, walked past enough monotone guides mumbling into microphone-and-headset groups, and was never interested in taking a tour because of that. Orion changed that. It was so good I would literally take the exact same tour with him again, and now I understand why others have taken the tour multiple times.
