Our Dark History New Orleans ghost tour is 90 minutes of story after story about New Orleans, her haunted buildings, haunted cemeteries, haunted parks, and haunted spirits that just won’t leave her alone.
After nearly a decade’s worth of preparation, we have discovered that the spirits can get just as restless as we can, and they are wailing out to share their stories! So, Nightly Spirits has promised to introduce them to guests of all ages! Our NOLA Spooktacular All-Ages Ghost Walk is 90 minutes of story after story about New Orleans, her haunted buildings, haunted cemeteries, haunted parks, and haunted spirits that just won’t leave her alone. You will hear tales of disease, disaster, and death; of former residents who refuse to leave and pranking poltergeists waiting to play! Whether you are a believer or not, there is a powerful spiritual energy that surrounds New Orleans and we can’t wait to share it with everyone. Nightly Spirits Dark History Walking Tours have no age restrictions, as long as minors are accompanied by an adult.
What to Expect:
Our tour begins in front of the famous St. Louis Cathedral, where your costumed tour guide will take you on a 90-minute journey past some of the oldest buildings in the south, like the Ursuline Convent, the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley, with rumors of vampires locked away behind the closed shutters of the attic. We will stroll through Jackson Square, where hundreds of public executions took place, and pass famous hotels will more than a few guests eternally checked in. So, walk, crawl, or roll on into the French Quarter, and we’ll show you the heart of the city and the spirits that keep it beating.
