The NOLA Ghosts Difference: Join us for an authentic experience
No gimmicks. We strive to deliver a memorable experience for visitors and locals alike. The mission of New Orleans Ghosts is to explain the strange, unexplained, and fantastic hauntings routinely experienced in New Orleans. To do this, we seek to answer the who, what, how, and why behind each haunting story. First, we journey into the history behind each location we visit, and the people involved in our stories. We believe that it is often a person’s violent and tragic history that results in the lingering presences at each location that we call “ghosts”. Only by understanding the history and what the people in our stories suffered through, can we begin to understand why a place might be haunted. Endeavour to put yourself in the shoes of the men and women in our stories, to understand their plight. Then, we will attempt to draw a logical connection between the events and people of the past, to the prevalent hauntings experienced today. While no one can use science to explain how a place is haunted, we venture to logically explain why a place is haunted through engaging storytelling backed by true historic events.
For exclusive access to five more locations after the tour ends, make sure to sign up for our extended tour. The extended tour will take you on an extra 30 to 45-minute tour for five additional ghost stories for only $6.
All Ghost Tours meet and end in the French Quarter at Jackson Square at 700 Decatur Street, on the Northwest side of the Jackson Statue.
