New Orleans Ghosts and Spirits Walking Tour

9 Reviews

  • Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Duration: 2 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3780GHOSTS
See haunted sites in the French Quarter on this 2-hour ghost tour of New Orleans. Hear ghostly legends and lore from your entertaining guide, who shares eerie tales featured on the History Channel. With its colorful past and unique traditions, it’s no wonder that so many New Orleans’ homes and taverns have been investigated by paranormal investigators!
When it rains in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the locals swear that a beautiful voice floats out of the mist. After you hear the story of ‘Bloody’ O'Reilly vs. Pere Dagobert – an 18th-century priest of St Louis Cathedral – you just might hear the singing rain too!

Start your ghost tour at Jackson Brewery, where you’ll meet your entertaining guide and set off to various haunted sites. There's no guarantee you will spot a ghost, but you'll see where you're most likely to meet one! Learn about the spirits that inhabit the Bourbon Orleans Hotel – formerly a theater, ballroom, orphanage and convent – where the staff and guests report regular sightings of uninvited guests. Walk to O'Flaherty's Pub and hear the story of several resident ghosts who dislike one another.

Be sure to bring your camera. You never know who will want to pose for a picture!

We met our tour guide Todd at the lighthouse. Todd was very fun, informative and knowledgeable tour guide. After seeing all the sights on the tour, I was having a conversation with him about Madam Marie Delphine Lalaurie's home. He stated it was not on the tour. He told my traveling companions and I where it was on Royal St. I don't know if I should include this, but as this was the best tour, I am. After Todd concluded the tour and was off duty, he asked if we would like to see the house. Of course we said yes. So we stopped at a bar and I bought him a beer. With cocktails in hand, we walked to this house where he gave the history of the house. Upon arrival, my girlfriends and I took several pics and had dancing orbs from the outside of the house. We were told that Nicolas Cage had owned the house but since his tax evasions, it was confiscated from him and no one currently lived in the house. As we took pics, a gentleman walked up to my sister and asked why we were taking pictures of this house. We told him because it was haunted. We also told him that local legend states that locals will not walk under the balcony of the home as well. We watched him as he walked under the balcony and disappeared into a door way. Suddenly he was standing on the balcony talking to us. We asked him several questions to which he would neither confirm or deny. All in all, this was the best tour we had taken and Todd was an absolute gem for not only the tour, but the after tour as well. He totally made our trip. Thanks Todd!
