New Orleans Ghost, Voodoo & Vampire Walking Tour

3,111 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.

Chef Scott was great to learn from. From local culture to parades including recommendations for food and drink. But don’t forget the cooking. We signed up for the Louisiana sauce class, looking for something lighter than heavy roux based sauces. We had a fantastic time poaching shrimp for cocktail with remoulade sauce. Sautéed trout a la meunière. With a fantastic bread pudding dessert.

We did the Roux class with Chef Scott Mcglinchey on Dec 12, 2020. It was so much fun and the food turned out to be delicious! The class was very well organised and Chef Scott was wonderful! I'd love to go back for another class. I have a shell fish allergy but Chef Scott took care of it by having me cook one of the dishes with chicken instead of shrimp. He is definitely an expert and is a very good teacher. There was wine and beer provided as well. He also gave us a card with his recommendations for good restaurants in New Orleans. I learned a lot about Louisiana cooking and it was fantastic experience. I recommended it 100%

My fiance and I signed up for the brunch class with Preston. He is a fantastic teacher and entertaining with his knowledge of the history of the dishes we were preparing. You must absolutely check this class out. The shrimp and grits were my favorite thing we made. My fiance loved the praline bacon and crab cake. Request Preston!

Our reservation was not honored. We were unable to have the experience. Our class wasn't available because the reservation wasn't processed. We were not informed of this situation.

I don't know how to apologize for something we had no idea about. I know you were disappointed, so were we.

The food was amazing and Conner had so much information and tips to share. We asked about any recommendations and the restaurants we went to while on our trip were all delicious too. We not only learned how to cook but experienced other New Orleans favorites.
