DO NOT book this tour - no show no refund
, Oct 2021
We booked the 7pm tour. My family waited until 8:15pm and the tour guide Coty still had not shown up. We left and the tour operator refused to issue a refund. The message from the refund refusal was “this tour operated as scheduled”, regarding of my proof of message exchange that the tour guide NEVER showed up. The worst part of this whole experience was being lied to. Around 7:30pm, when I texted him for and estimated arrival time, he texted “I am parking now”. So my family stopped exploring the French Quarter area and waited outside of the meet spot for over half hour as the tour guide kept saying he was arriving soon. Eventually, he admitted he was “still stuck in traffic”. The lie was worse than the no show. Had he never lied about “parking”, we’d been gladly exploring the area until he eventually arrived. But we were tricked into spending our first night in New Orleans waiting outside of a business while my child could have had a wonderful dinner at one of these restaurants in the area.

Customer was refunded via Viator and the tour guide Maddie, who is the owners daughter gave this tour. It started on time @ 7pm with 6 attendees- we have time stamped photos of the customers at the meeting location! Coty was not the tour guide for the tour. Evidently the customer saw his name on other reviews?!? I spoke with the customer via Viator extranet never the phone and explained that the tour was operating as scheduled. When the customer sent the message the tour has already started and was half way finished. 6 attendees on the tour can plus we have 2 different views of time stamped photos of the customers at the starting point for this tour! I explained the tour was operating when they contacted us via email Viator extranet! When guests are late I guess it’s easier to blame our tour guide. She could have easily just met the group along the tour route. Our phone number 504-358-7012 was never contacted by this guest- the only contact made was via Viator messaging system and I was clear that the tour was operating.
History, Ghosts and Fun

This this tour was very informative of New Orleans history and haunting past. Our guide was knowledgeable and allowed for stops along the way to get drinks or use the facilities. We were able to see a side of the city that is unknown walking the streets as a tourist.
Very informative and fun!
, Jul 2021
Small group and very knowledgeable tour guide! We enjoyed all of the history that the guide provided!
One of our favorite parts of the trip!
, May 2021
Coty Young was an awesome guide. He really represented NOLA. Our teenage kids were fully engaged the whole time. One of them said it was the highlight of the trip. It was fun, educational, funny and interesting.
The worst
, Apr 2021
All this tour was was bar stopping and bathroom breaks not more then 3-4 stories NO ONE WEARING MASKS afraid of catching covid from this group of 10 Even tour guide no wearing
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
I would personally be ashamed of myself to say this.... If you had paid any attention you would have noticed that there was a group of hearing impaired people on this tour. Maybe you paid attention and maybe you didn’t but regardless that is what I consider to be the worst. The guests & guide had masks however to communicate they had to pull their masks down. To say you would catch COVID from people who are hearing impaired is so sad. If you are that concerned about covid you should stay home. This tour listing states that drinks can be purchased along the tour route. When you book a public tour it is obvious that other people will be in attendance and if they want to stop and get a drink or use the restroom we do our best to accommodate and keep everyone happy. It sounds like a private tour is something that would fit your particular needs in the future. As for the comment stating that the tour consisted of 3 or 4 stories .... how did you not realize that from the start to the end of this tour there were over ten stops with a duration of two hours. It would be near impossible to only tell three or four stories during this tour. Maybe it was the drinks from the bar stops offered that got ya missing half the tour!
We didnt learn anything...
, Mar 2021
We didnt learn anything new see anything that we hadnt walk past earlier that day very disapointed. We didnt even go to all the places we was supposed to go.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2021
Firstly I apologize that you are disappointed. We never want any guest to feel like they didn’t learn anything. Our goal is for everyone to have fun and learn about the city we love so very much. This is a French Quarter tour so if you walked around the area prior to the tour I am sure you saw some of the locations previously. However this tour goes into great detail on the properties it visits and passes by. We have given this tour since 2014 and I have never heard anyone say they didn’t learn anything in fact all the reviews on here were stellar prior to yours. Ten 5 star reviews and one 4 star review written by guests. I personally contact guests randomly and ask them for feedback and this review really blows my mind. It was brought to my attention by the tour guide (who happens to be the co owner of the company) that you wanted him to take you and your husband to see the pyramid tomb in St Louis Cemetery 1. As he explained, the reason he was unable to take you to that particular cemetery is 1. That wasn’t a part of the tour 2. The St Louis Cemetery 1 it isn’t in the French Quarter (this is a French Quarter tour and the description is clear) 3. St Louis Cemetery 1 personally hosts tours during the day only. There are some tour companies that work with the cemetery as it is closed off to the public and they require everyone to go in with a tour guide. You would need to book a tour with the cemetery or company that works for the cemetery. Our company only offers French Quarter tours. Even if my tour guide had taken you out of the French Quarter and walked you to the cemetery it would have been closed! As far as the locations, every location listed on this tour itinerary was on the tour you attended. The tour route actually would make it near impossible for you to miss a location due to where it departs and concludes. If you are referring to St. Louis Cemetery 1 it is not listed on this tour description. From what I see it appears as though you assumed that the cemetery / mass burial ground that the description lists was St Louis Cemetery 1 however that is a different cemetery. We visit the cemetery / mass burial ground that is located in the French Quarter and guests are given a narration that provides history behind it and the surrounding area. Again, I apologize that you didn’t get what you expected. Have a blessed day. Kind Regards- Ashli

haunted tour in French quarter

My sister, her husband and I had a blast walking around the French quarter with a small group of strangers listening to spooky stories, random celeb knowledge, and historical information. Our guide was great! I would recommend.
Such a fun tour

Overall it was a good excursion. It hit the right note and the stops at the various bars was cool, so I had a drink as we walked.
