The premier Ghost Tour of the city, led by pre-Katrina storytellers. Unlike most tours of the type, you'll learn who the dead of the city were when alive, what keeps them attached to the places visited, and why in some cases they can never hope to leave! By the tour's end you'll hear stories of first hand accounts, histories to Explain the hauntings and understand more about the process of hunting ghosts, and perhaps see some of the large catalogue of ghost photos in our possession, if you'll pardon the phrase...

WOW! What an AMAZING tour! Jonathan is a great historian. He was very knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. He clearly painted a picture and then BROUGHT THE STORIES TO LIFE! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend this tour!!!

Jonathan had tons of knowledge about the history of New Orleans and the buildings within the city. He took us safely within the city as we had our 14 year old daughter with us. We learned a lot. Super affordable and worth taking!

This is the tour to take if you are interested in real ghost stories and southern history. Our guide was knowledgeable and a real southerner who has a deep appreciation for his hometown.

Thomas was an awesome tour guide! He told so many great stories about the ghosts of the city and we learned a lot about the history of the French Quarter. We were entertained the whole time and it was a fun way to get to see more of the French Quarter! Thank you for a fun night!!

Jonathan was an amazing tour guide and story teller. We stopped at several places that had a lot of historic value to the city as well as some pretty gruesome pasts. He interacted with the group and answered any questions along the way. He even gave us some recommendations locally and outside of NOLA to try for a ghost siting. All around great guy. Lucky to have found this tour guide!

The tour was excellent! I learned so much and had even more fun than I thought I would. My favourite part was when Jonathan took us to the Blacksmith bar - I never would have known about this very important piece of history if we hadn't taken this tour. The delivery was perfect - every word!

We had such a great time with Jonathan! If you want a tour with real stories, and a more personable guide to share their knowledge, not information scripted and answer your questions, book a tour with Jonathan Weiss! You will not be disappointed. Cannot wait to return to take the rest of his tours!

Best guide, best history not told by every other non local guide. You want authentic he’s the guy with a strong homage to the pirate history NOLA is known for if you’re local. Very reverent of the dead and our ancestors who built the city.

We took both the Vampire Tour and French Quarter Ghost Tour with Jonathan, as well as the Dark History Tour with Thomas. Jonathan had a way of describing things where it placed you right in what it would have been like to be there, and his information was different from other tours I had taken. Thomas had a lot of humor and provided a different perspective. I would highly recommend all three tours!

Jonathan Weiss is an excellent tour guide. While hearing super cool stories about ghosts you also learn so much history. He really makes history come alive, like you can feel the spirits walking around the French Quarter with you. I've been on this tour twice now, a couple years apart, and both times were amazing.
