New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,097 reviews
New Orleans is infamous for its spooky past, filled with tales of voodoo, vampires, ghosts, and witches. During this walking tour, save time with a guide who knows the quickest routes around the Big Easy and brings the folklore and history of the city to life, all during the creepiest time of day—the night. Plus, a centrally located meeting point makes for a hassle-free, fun evening.

This was a hidden gem that I only found out about through my daughter who lives in New Orleans. I am very glad she told me about it. The property was beautiful and had an interesting history. It is not far from the city center and was a nice escape. We arrived early, before they were officially open, but they arranged a tour guide to take us right away. There were just two of us on the tour so we had plenty of time to ask questions and walk around. Even though we were there in winter, the gardens were still nice and there were some plants blooming. It was a worthwhile attraction to see.

I cannot put into words how beautiful this place is! The grounds are immaculate and the house is so beautiful! The gardens are incredibly beautiful with European flare. This is such a serene place and it transports you into a different place and time! Super!!! Can't wait to go back!

and our guide, Ms. Sue Barton was really good. She was certain to provide facts that kept me and my spouse interested. It was good to learn about the philanthropy of the family for African-Americans. While I understand the point of preserving and keeping visitors off/away from many of the rooms/displays, I wish we could have had more of a hands-on or close-up experience, in some of the spaces. I wanted to take pictures but felt so far away, in some of the rooms. It's quite fascinating to see how advanced the thinking of the homeowners were with some of the additions (I don't want to give anything away). We did walk the gardens a bit, but not fully as I did not want to ignite my year-long allergies and be on benedryl while in NOLA. Better suited for adults, I kept imagining how dreadful it would have been with children on the tour asking to leave or touching things they could not. The house tour is all-weather, but the gardens, obviously need to be had on a good weather day. Note - do not buy a beverage in the gift shop/admissions table before the tour. Wait until after.

For being so close to downtown, this was quite a pleasant surprise. The gardens are absolutely gorgeous, and the house is amazing. The tour guide was very friendly and helpful and I’d highly recommend stopping here. Side note: if you take a taxi, make sure you get the driver’s number, or plan to Uber back

I love to go to this place. The grounds are beautiful and the inside of the house is wonderful too. It has a rich history, lovely art work and when the flowers are in bloom its even more beautiful.
