New Orleans Ghost Tour

The city of New Orleans needs no embellishment or made-up ghost stories: our true history of scandal, murder, betrayal, and disease is far more incredible than anything a person could make up. Find out why New Orleans is the most haunted city in the U.S. as you hear the history of New Orleans, with a dark twist.

Allow our expert guides to lead you through the historic French Quarter as the sun sets, bringing you face to face with the most haunted buildings in the country. You’ll learn the origins of some of the most chilling events, legends, and crimes dating back to the Civil War, and hear anecdotes of present-day paranormal activity occurring across the city.

As you traverse the narrow, gas-lit streets of the French Quarter, you’ll uncover tales that weave together the fabric of New Orleans’ haunted past. Each building and alleyway has a story, from the infamous LaLaurie Mansion, where Madame Delphine LaLaurie’s horrifying acts of cruelty still echo through the corridors, to the Sultan’s Palace, a site of a gruesome massacre that left a permanent mark on the city’s history.

The ghostly apparitions of pirates, soldiers, and voodoo practitioners are said to roam the streets, their restless spirits a testament to the city’s tumultuous past. Hear the story of Jean Lafitte, the pirate who became a folk hero, and his hidden treasures rumored to be cursed. Learn about the tragic tale of the Ursuline Convent, where the spirits of young women, victims of yellow fever, are said to linger, their mournful cries heard on quiet nights.
