Adele did a great job of keeping it fun and informative and letting us know folklore vs history. This is my third ghost and history tour in Nola and definitely my favorite so far.

Carmel was great and very knowledgeable. Even though we didn't see any ghosts. She made it interesting, fun, and walking at an easy pace. With a couple of stops to relieve and relax, (drinks!) I would definitely do it again.

Thanks for taking the time to share your excellent experience with Carmel and our company. Those air conditioned bar breaks are little lifesavers. Please do look us up next time you are in town, we are always working on something new.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great

across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied

About a mile during the course of two hours. The pace is to walk a block and then hear a story, then walk a block or so and hear two stories and so on. It is a leisurely pace, easily done with a cocktail in hand.
