From US$30.00
Overview
New Orleans may be notorious for its ghost stories, but the city is also home to a host of shocking true crime that's too grisly to make up. On this adults-only evening tour, roam through the lively French Quarter with a guide who shares the gruesome details of crimes ripped straight from headlines and police reports. From the beastly LaLaurie and Trunk murders to the Katrina Cannibal, these tales are not for the faint of heart.
What to Expect
Maybe ghost stories don’t quite pique your interest, but you have that curiosity about the dark side of humanity. Some of the most terrifying things are what people do to each other, and perhaps you want to glimpse into this corrupt corner of New Orleans.

This walking tour is an intriguing but terrifying adults-only tour (16 and over.) Our group size is never over 15 guests, making the tour more enjoyable for everyone. Your tour guide will be a local that is licensed with the city of New Orleans

Gut-twisting dive into the city's most grisly murderous criminal acts include:

- Eerie mansion of the sinister socialite Madame LaLaurie
- Unsettling tale of the Katrina Cannibal's murder & suicide
- Ghastly story of the infamous Trunk Murders from 1927 And, more!

Tours are nightly 5 & 7 pm.
Tour group size is never over 15 guests unless a private tour was arranged prior to tour.
Tour is designed to be 1.5 hours, but can run up to 2 hours.
Check in is 15 minutes prior to start.
For everyone’s courtesy, tours leave on time.
At least 2 people are required for this activity to take place.
Tours go on rain or shine.
Tours are about a mile walk.

Tour does not end where tour starts. Guest will be helped after the tour with directions to where they are going next.

Wonderful tour with entertaining guide!

David was our guide. He has a gift for storytelling and made the tour so interesting. We walked from site to site and David regaled us with engaging stories of New Orleans, how the city has evolved and how tight knit the communities were throughout...More

Cool tour! David was awesome!

A great tour! It was a good mix of crimes from a long time ago to the fairly recent. It's a nice change of pace from the normal ghost tours of NOLA. David was an awesome guide!

Yes it's a walking tour. It's about an hour or so and at least a mile in walking distance I'd say.
