This tour was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide, Mac, was super friendly and took us to the best places. He made super cringy dad jokes, but I live for those. He even threw in some history about NOLA while we walked around. This was definitely one of the best tours I have ever been on!!

We were looking forward to the potential of New Orleans eerie history but was quickly disappointed. The stories told weren’t told in story form and therefor very difficult to believe. We left half way through and would of left earlier if it wasn’t 50 dollars
