Our group enjoyed the Killers and Thrillers Tour as a lark. We have taken similar tours in other cities, and we expected silly street theater. I don’t normally write reviews but we had such a good time I decided to break my own rules.
We were very pleasantly surprised by our guide Michael. No hokey costumes and with a phenomenal knowledge of New Orleans. Much of the tour was drawn from his own research in the various archives within the city. That gave a far greater depth to the tour. The tour covered the colonial period up to modern day.
Michael’s presentation was superb adding a wealth of details about the history of New Orleans and the French Quarter as we walked along. Michael made certain that we could hear him (he has a deep voice). He was polite, pleasant, and thoroughly enjoyable.
What we truly appreciated was his cutting through the myths and legends of New Orleans. His archival research certainly shined through here. He dispelled the myths and legends around the LaLaurie Mansion, Michael informed and entertained the entire group.
I heartily recommend Michael and the Killers and Thrillers tour.

Christian, our tour guide, truly MADE this experience. With his masterful use of voice, language and tone while recounting these chilling tales, the listener is pulled into the haunted history of the dark realities that existed at each location, and the dark realities that still exist to haunt many people in New Orleans and people all over the world today. I highly recommend this tour & encourage you to brace yourselves to learn of the true horrors that occurred!

Christian was also kind enough to give thorough recommendations of places to eat & drink/ places to visit in New Orleans after the tour. We highly appreciated his candor and hospitality.

Christian did an amazing job with the tour we would definitely recommend your tour all the details of the thrillers and killers of New Orleans. The rain didn’t deter anyone from coming and Christian was so passionate and excitable in his story telling. If we ever get back down to New Orleans it will be a must tour to take again.

I've done many ghost tours in many different cities. This tour was by far one of my favorites that I have ever been on. Some tours in other cities (and some of the ones I passed in NOLA) are hokey. The guides are basically overly dramatic actors, and half of what they tell you isn't true. I love that Michael is a history professor, so he actually knew the real history of the City. He debunked some of the legends we've heard over the years, and told us about the actual events. Some of the content is very sensitive, and he handled the subject matter with respect, which I greatly appreciated. He has a real passion for the subject matter. You can tell it's not just a "job" for him. NOLA can get rowdy, and there are some weird characters. As a small group of 3 women we also felt extremely comfortable with Michael, and knew he'd have our backs if anything crazy went down, which I could not appreciate more. I highly recommend this tour, and I would try to get Michael again if I went back.

My fiancé & I were going to choose another tour but decided last minute to take this one & it did NOT disappoint. Our guide was Christian, he went above & beyond with this experience. He was extremely knowledgeable & captivating, at no point did he lose our attention. He dealt with interruptions amazingly (a second line coming down the street) & talked over the loudness of the city with ease. He is also a New Orleans native, which was very nice as he knew all about the city! I would 100% recommend this tour over all of the others! Christian is the best!

Usually always enjoy a ghost city tour. This is the tour I look for when visiting a city. We have been on so many and this was our first disappointment. We went on the 8pm Sept 1st tour. Our tour guide was very soft spoken, talked through loud background noises, and a lot was missed of what she said. She didn't really give great detail or interest in what she was telling. Cut the tour short 30minutes. Maybe went on 4 stops. I don't know if I will ever go back on ghost city tour again. I want a refund for the utter lack of quality and time typically had on a ghost city tour.

Michael was our guide for the 8pm tour which did not disappoint. We thoroughly enjoyed Michael’s deep knowledge and appreciation for the city. This was passed through a series of engaging stories against various backdrop points which brought each one to life. We were lucky to be in a relatively small group of nine which compared favourably to a lot of other tours with much bigger audiences. All in all a fantastic experience and worth every penny. Our thanks to Michael.

We are a fan of ghost tours if they are available when we visit a new city, and have experienced our share of tour guides and storytellers. My son and I were looking forward to this tour, being a little out of the norm and a little more descriptive than the normal ghost tour, and we were not disappointed.
Christian was our guide and he did a phenomenal job of intertwining modern and older history to tell these traumatic tales. Some of these older history we knew but the newer ones we hadn’t heard, and he made them all interesting and sprinkled some funny moments throughout. He kept us all entertained, my teen loved every minute of it, and I always love when I can teach my kid some history in a fun way.
Highly recommend this tour and Christian!

My group of friends and I traveled from LA to New Orleans, and one thing we all have in common is… we all love creepy, gore-y s***! What better place to explore than the morbid streets of New Orleans rich with history and ridden with unexplained murders… most logical people would run the other direction, but we said, “sign us up!”

Christian led our tour group and did a phenomenal job at making our tour as thrilling as possible… he made sure to leave out no gruesome details. This tour is not for the faint of heart. I have to say by the end of the tour I was checking over my shoulder a bit more often, but we loved hearing Christian’s bone-chilling renditions of the stories that haunt the streets of NOLA. If you love a good thrill, and also don’t mind tales of blood, gore, and guts, this one is for you….👻

Our tour guide Michael was phenomenal. His tour was informative and historically accurate which I appreciated very much. He was so engaging that our group of about 30 listened intently the entire time. He had a sense of humor without white washing the facts of the brutal history of New Orleans. I highly recommend both the tour as well as the tour guide Michale.
