New Orleans Ghost Tour

“Everybody, dead or alive, comes back to New Orleans. If people can’t come back in their lifetime, they come back when they are dead.” – Andrei Codrescu

Port cities see their share of humanity come and go, and New Orleans is no different. The spirits of the city’s past inhabitants are just ‘dying’ to be discovered on this extraordinary New Orleans experience. This is a great way to learn the Creole history of the Big Easy in the creepiest and scariest manner possible!

Join Free Tours by Foot as darkness envelops the city and we explore the haunted history of the French Quarter – New Orleans’ spookiest, most haunted district – and hear accounts of love-lured specters, tormented souls of war, vile traitors, and the sorrowful woes of the repentant dead. This is no ordinary New Orleans ghost tour!

Some examples of the sites and stories covered on the tour:

  • Pirates Alley/Torture
  • The Octoroon Mistress
  • Yellow Fever
  • The Hotel Montelone
  • Modern True Crime Stories
  • Locations for American Horror Story Coven
  • and much more…
