Tour guide was fine but we left at the beginning because people were not following social distancing and were not wearing masks properly(only covering their mouths). I can't rate the actual tour since we left.

New orleans ghost tour
Deanna_M

We took our tour on Saturday night which was probably not the best choice on our part because there were about 75 other tours happening at the same time and there fore the different locations got crowded and were difficult to see. Also out tour group was too large compared to others so there was not time for everyone to really get a good look see and take pictures before we were already moving to the next location. The size of the group also made it very difficult to hear the soft voiced tour guide so we.missed about half the stories. The whole thing ended up feeling like more of a cattle call through the streets of New orleans than a spooky experience

We're so sorry that you could not hear your guide well! Obviously, the busy-ness of the Quarter is absolutely beyond our control-- and our group size was 14 which is standard across the industry right now (actually considered a small group tour!)-- but regardless, you should have been able to hear your guide and this is absolutely not the experience we want our guests to have. Please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com so that we can fix this for you. Thank you!

Crystal was so knowledgeable and fun! She 100% covered everything and made the experience great! Also rex the dog how was helping his human train to be a guide was a delightful addition that certainly made me feel better after the talk of death! We couldn't recommend this tour or tour company more! We actually had a rescheduling issue and they actually made the tour better!

Thank you, Marley! We apologize for the rescheduling issue but I am SO happy you had such an awesome time with Krista!
