Overview

Black Rose Tours is the Only walking tour company that not only takes you inside of paranormal active locations on each tour but keeps all groups to a maximum of 15 guests allowing better interaction with your tour guide. Owned by a professional Psychic Medium allows us to be the Only company to offer Real Seance / Paranormal Investigations & tour packages. Take a daytime stroll with a private tour guide through the City of the Dead; St. Louis Cemetery #1 and hear about the history of Voodoo or through the historic Garden District & Lafayette Cemetery #1. Night tours of Dark History & Legends, Murder & Mayhem, and Haunted Hotels may be more to your liking. For the very adventurous and brave, join us in a real Seance followed by a Paranormal Investigation with Medium Willow Le Mechant and the New Orleans Paranormal Explorers. You will get hands on experiences with actual equipment and may even communicate with the dead via our Spirit Box. Join Us If You Dare!!!
