My wife and I have done these “ghost tours” in Seattle and Edinburg and thought they were really fun. So why not try it again in New Orleans, right? Well, with the other tours we’ve been on, the guides presented the tour with allot of tongue-in-cheek humor. Telling stories and tales but with a bit of fun tossed in. Everyone is happier if you’re laughing some of the time. This was not the case with Haunted History Tours. Right from the start our guide tried to make the walk actually scary. At least I think he was trying to make it scary? He recited stories in sometimes mind numbing detail about horrific actions of murder and killings using a deep crackling voice that never changed in tone. I still don’t know if that voice was real or made up? But in any case, it was hard to take this stuff very serious with all the sights and sounds of the French Quarter from which we were walking through. Much of the tour was still during daylight hours and it just became more of the same drawn out stories of atrocities. About half way through we stopped at the oldest operating bar in town for bathroom breaks and to get a drink if you desired… on your dime of course. I fought my way to the bar for a couple of drinks and my wife and I parked ourselves on a bench outside. Soon it was time to meet back up for the rest of the tour and we very seriously thought about just disappearing into the night. But another couple we were with talked us into continuing on. We finally got back and I was never so glad to be done with something. Seriously consider doing something else with your time and money.
