History

Often called the most haunted city in America, New Orleans is home to numerous historic buildings and unusual cemeteries brimming with tales of ghost sightings and unexplainable occurrences.

 

Haunted History Tours offers a variety of  themes including ghost, voodoo, vampire, cemetery and scandals. Reservations are required and the times vary depending on time of year. Experience hauntings first-hand at famous spots such as Lalaurie Mansion, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, Arnaud’s Restaurant and Hotel Monteleone.

 

Bloody Mary’s Tours explore the French Quarter to the Garden District. Discover the history behind some of New Orleans’ most haunted spots. Thrill seekers 21 and older can take a haunted pub crawl, with stops at infamous bars, restaurants, hotels and even a former brothel. If none of the tours appeal to you, design a custom tour — be sure to make an appointment to arrange.

 

For those looking for a budget-friendly tour experience, check out Free Tours By Foot. The tour is complimentary, and you can opt to pay-what-you-wish when it’s done. The ghost tour departs at 7:30 p.m. Thursday–Monday. Besides popular historic spots, the tour visits locations from the recent television series American Horror Story: Coven. Reservations are required.

 

Beyond the standard ghost tours, French Quarter Phantoms also offers guests a chance to ghosthunt firsthand. Join experienced ghost hunters from the Paranormal Society of New Orleans as they show you how a paranormal investigation works. Investigations take place Friday–Monday evenings at 7 or 10 p.m. at the Jimani Lounge. The location was featured on the television series Ghost Hunters. Tickets are $40 and reservations must be made 72 hours in advance.

 

Don’t wait until Halloween to discover the haunted side of New Orleans. Book your tour today.
