Such a fun tour! Definitely wear some walking shoes because you'll be walking all over down town! Our tour guide, Ashley, aka Trashley was hilarious and super sweet. Would totally do this tour again. Hopefully you get her if you get this tour. Plenty of time to stop at bars to get new drinks while walking around.

This tour was outstanding and Ashli was an excellent guide. We had originally scheduled the tour for the afternoon and ended up changing to an evening tour. I think the darkness added to the interest of the tour.

The tour guide, Ashli, is just superb. She instantly became a friend. She's just got that warm and hysterical personality that makes the tour that much more fun. We laughed so much and also learned a lot. The stops she takes you on are super cool and she is just full of great little tidbits as your walking the streets in between stops. You also get to stop at some very fun bars. We had such a blast. Absolutely book this tour with Ashli! p.s. only I can call her Ashhole...haha...inside joke

A fun and entertaining way to see New Orleans and learn some very interesting facts. Our tour guide Ashley was awesome!!! Ashley was fun and knowledgeable and brought some great ghost detecting gadgets for the kids to use. The tour was one of our NOLA highlights.

Tour was awesome, funny and safe.The bar stops were at cool bars that we would have otherwise passed up so that was a plus,(and they all had bathrooms.) You get a good mix of supernatural tales not just ghost, and some historic info about new orleans! Ashley was a great tour guide, would Recommend!

I had a great time on this tour. The tour guide was so much fun and showed some of her own pictures to explain the story further. I would definitely recommend this to other people heading to the area. Only tip - The first 20 minutes or so there is no bar so you may want to have a drink to start the tour.

This tour was so much fun. We were not familiar with the stories of New Orleans. We have all done some research to learn more about the stories told. Fire, romance, vodoo, pop culture of famous names owning property in the area. Our favorite stop was at the Provinicial Hotel. Great bartender.

Great tour of the French Quarter. Ashley was an awesome tour guide who really knew how to engage a large crowd with little known stories and interesting stories from New Orleans' past. We never felt rushed through the tour and she really catered our experience to what we were interested in.

Absolutely loved this tour, would take it again and highly recommend to everyone!! Ashli was the BEST, so funny and gave such an entertaining and informative tour, loved it!!

If I could give this tour 10 stars I would. Ashli is not only well informed on New Orleans History, she's funny, sassy and made our trip. We walked around the French Quarter, drink in hand, learning about the darker side of NOLA. Our group thought this was the highlight of our short stay in New Orleans. Make sure to wear comfy shoes because the streets of New Orleans are wobbly.

This tour was a riot. I feel like we covered a fantastic amount of ground, learned a ton of history, and I think my cheeks hurt from laughing at the end. The group size was pretty small, which made this a lot more fun than it looked like other groups were having, and the ghost photo taking tips were great fun.
• Submitted 15 Nov 2016
This tour was a blast. A mix of real history and the legends and ghost stories about the French Quarter. Ashley was fantastic. She knew her stuff, was a ton of fun, and had just the right amount of skepticism in her voice when talking about the haunted houses and ghost stories. 3 beer stops on the tour too!
• Submitted 02 Nov 2016
This was my first time in New Orleans and I wanted to get my bearings on the French Quarter and learn a bit about the history of the area. This tours perfect for that! Ashley the tour guide was energetic and taught us a lot. Other tour groups passed us and there were 20 people in them. There were just 5 of us with Ashley and she said they normally keep their groups small like that. We could hear everything that she said and it was easy to all stay together.
• Submitted 04 Sep 2016
Awesome tour with Ashley! She knew her history and made the tour so entirely fun! This was a great start to a girls weekend. We got our bearings in a new city and had local insight... All while learning history and having a few beverages along the way. I highly recommend.
