Taylor!!! Although my aunts swore we were initiating a seance, and were going to have spirits attach to our souls to travel back to Austin…they were pleased and educated. Way to go opening their minds.

I loved this tour! Our guide was super knowledgeable, sarcastic and entertaining. I loved learning about the Lalaurie mansion and Marie Laveu in real life after watching AHS! It was cool that the guide was quoting real newspaper articles and not just talking about urban legends.

The tours was great!!! The guide whose name has escaped my memory (either Mac or Taylor) gave an extremely good exegesis regarding the true history of the religion of voodoo. He also cleared up the monstrous stories that people have created about Madame Leveau. The history he cited is more logical than the horror stories that have been floating around. I recommend taking this tour.

Once we got past the self promotion, it was a good tour, just a bit of time to get into the good stuff. Difficult with Covid to help get closer to hear more like he requested.

Thought we would have gotten a little more history. I think we stopped at 3-4 spots and was told a mediocre story About someone dying and haunting or witch/vampires. I’d say for the money not worth it but he guide Sarah was really animated and fun.
