Thanks for the feedback With all due respect did you read over the description at all? This tour listing specifically says the following: A real EMF Meter - Ghost/Paranormal Detector will be used during this tour. A definite sign that it will be a ghost tour!! It also says: Hear ghost stories, vampire stories and even learn about the infamous voodoo that took place in New Orleans. There are specific “History Tours” that’s are offered by our company and others that would have been a better fit for you. Next time read the description. The title also does not say “history” in it. Simply reading about the tour would have prevented your frustration. Also, I am an obvious woman with long blonde hair not a man as referred to in this review so that’s interesting.
