We did the French Quarter Ghost Tour with Jonathan and had a fantastic time on his tour. We went on four separate tours with various companies and Jonathan's tour was easily our favorite. Being a local and longtime tour guide pre-Katrina, Jonathan's passion set him...More

Heavy on the history; light on the haunted, which worked just fine for me. Our guide was Brent. Animated storyteller, native of New Orleans with a contagious love for his city. Never had trouble hearing him. Tour included a 15 min stop at a historic...More

6 hours? On a work day during the holiday season. Monstrous. And what the lady you spoke to tried to get across was that we need a 12 hour notice to book Groupon due to city ordinances regarding the number of attendees allowed per tour....More

The stories were boring, The guide didn't deliver the stories in an interesting way. Customer services didn't answer after we pay.

You received a greater than 50% discount, you left a tour by choice, misrepresented to me your reasons for doing so, and feel entitled to a refund for your choices, when you took spaces on the tour that others could have filled.

We had specially booked the ghost tour with Jonathan because we had read so many terrific reviews. Unfortunately, Jonathan was not our guide. While our guide, Mikko, was excellent, the three star rating reflects the fact that there were 40 other people on this tour....More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
