Stroll past Creole mansions and historic landmarks such as St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square and the spot where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803. The French Quarter is also known for its high density of bars, so stop in at several watering holes to purchase drinks (own expense) that you can take with you, thanks to the city's liberal open-container laws. Delve into New Orleans’ darker history as your guide shares tales of vampires, ghosts, and voodoo ceremonies. Visit an allegedly haunted house and try out equipment used by real paranormal investigators, including an EFM meter. The tour ends at the departure point.
