I recommend taking this tour at night to get the full experience. I can’t remember our guides name but I think it was Peter. What I can say is this tour is all about the guide you have. He was really into story telling and involved the guests to share their stories which added to the creepiness around the cemetery at night. It was a nice pace with story telling the entire time of ghost experience.

Our guide Richie, was very knowledgeable with the history of New Orleans. She was also very fun. I learned and saw a lot on this tour. If you are looking to see a ghost and learn some history this is the tour you need.

The tour was entertaining and educational. Our tour guide was funny and knowledgeable and made the experience truly enjoyable.

Our tour guide, Rob was an excellent story teller and did well keeping the crowd engaged.

Dartania was a great and thoughtful guide, we really loved our tour
