My wife and I went on his tour. He has done this long enough to have amassed a vast knowledge of local lore and a few hauntings of his own. We will visit again and do another of his tours.

Hands down my favorite thing I did in my visit to New Orleans. His tour was engaging and definitely authentic. Full of fun stories and learned a lot about the history of the city that I would have never known!

Jonathan was an amazing tour guide. Knowledgable about the history of New Orleans and passionate about his city. We took our 16 & 14 year old and they both proclaimed it the "Best Part of the Trip."

Anniversary trip to NOLA. Never took a tour. Had the best time despite the heat and humidity and Jonnathan was a hige part of that! He’s very engaging and I’m guessing telling tourists similar stories over and over would get old. If it does to...More

We were riveted to Jonathan’s stories. He is not following a script or presenting stale facts that you can read from a guidebook, it is as if he was there 300 years ago in Laffite’s tavern and he is merely recalling his own experiences. Entertaining...More

We had a great tour experience! Since Jonathan is local to NOLA, he knows a lot more of the history behind the ghosts and haunted buildings. He adds a personalized touch with his experiences, and is an excellent storyteller. Highly recommend!!

I consider myself to be a bit of New Orleans history affectionado. I’ve watched documentaries and went on other tours but this is by far the BEST. Jonathan is a life-long New Orleans resident and is very knowledgeable about New Orleans history. He was enthusiastic...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
