Your ghostly adventure starts in the evening at the Lighthouse Ticket Office in the French Quarter. Meet your local guide and steel yourself for a walk through the dark recesses of New Orleans’ haunted history. Cross your fingers that you’ll encounter (or not encounter!) a ghost at one of the eerie venues to come. 

You’ll first arrive at Jackson Brewery and the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, a spirited 200‐year‐old building that has enjoyed many lives as a theater, ballroom, orphanage and convent. Tour the space and learn of the confederate soldier, the lonely ghost dancer, and the apparitions of children and nuns that wander the rooms and halls. 

Afterwards, continue to O'Flaherty's Pub, said to be haunted by the ghosts of Joseph Wheaton, his wife Mary and his mistress Angelique. Hear the humorous tale of an awkward and endless ghoulish conflict that happens all around the pub.

Between stops, hear other creepy stories — some featured in History Channel and Discovery Channel exposés — including the legend of an octoroon woman named Julie whose spirit waits eternally for her lover at the Bottom of the Cup Tearoom on Royal Street!

Your 2‐hour tour returns to the starting point in the French Quarter.

Boring, long winded and no point to the stories

Have been on many ghost tours in New Orleans, Salem Mass and Paris, this was boring, uninformative and poorly run. I would NOT recommend at all even with a discount.
