Ok but gimmicky

The tour is a solid “ok”-the group is large, and most of the stories seem scripted and gimmicky. The tour offers very limited historical background and context, but if you want an energetic group that is just looking for a fun time, this would be a good choice.

Tour guide was drunk and unable to maintain the group’s attention. The group was also very large, and it was hard to hear her. Pretty sure that wasn’t Gatorade she was drinking the entire time; her words became increasingly slurred as the tour went on. She seemed very flustered by the surrounding noise and many stories would go unfinished because of it. No mention of the pharmacy. Not worth the money, if you get that tour guide. I can’t remember her name, but she has a knee problem.

Our group was very excited about hearing about the spiritual history of New Orleans and this tour fell flat. The tour guide was not a natural story teller and often lost the group within the first 15 seconds on the story. The most important part of the tour is the guide and I’m not sure how this guide passed a minimum standard. The stories never landed and it left the whole group wanting. She also took 45 mins longer than the allotted time mainly due to her getting distracted and walking slow due to “arthritis in her knee”. We did a food tour the next day and our guide told two ghosts stories better than we heard on the actual ghost tour. I hope the company performs a quality review of its guides because this one wasted the time and money of the 20+ people in our group.

Hi Daniel. Your guide has been in this industry for almost a decade and guests generally adore her. That said, we absolutely understand your frustration and will remedy this by offering a full refund. We appreciate you reaching out to us regarding this issue. Thank you, again.

A drunk tourists dream
Nanette_K

We visited some really cool places with interesting stories. However, our tour guide was very drunk and not in the fun way. Most of the people in the crowd were drunk too so I guess they didn’t really notice; but it’s important to take into account that your sober customers are are fully aware of how messy it all is. I would understand having a drink on the job to boost your confidence but it was just very sloppy and I couldn’t understand half of the stuff she was talking about- it was all over the place. Overall I would recommend this tour to my friends if they want to see the buildings in person and hopefully their guide will be sober enough to actually stay on track.
