Overview

The French Quarter is known as one of the most haunted places in America, and with so many ghost tours to choose from, the best choice is this 1-hour carriage tour from the award-winning Royal Carriages, recently awarded the 2018 Louisiana Attraction of the Year Award. Instead of walking around with a large group of people, you'll travel to and from haunted locations comfortably in a mule-drawn carriage guided by a professional tour. Learn about all the history, culture, and architecture in addition to the ghostly spirits that refuse to leave.

Highlights

  • Fully narrated tour
  • Ideal choice for families
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors

Roy and Liza were the best. The fact that carnival has started and we could hear music everywhere. Fun

Matt and Big Frieda were amazing. Matt explained that the mules which pull the wagons (only mules are allowed to pull wagons in New Orleans since the 1980’s because they are stronger, more sure-footed and can handle the heat better than horses).We had an awesome tour around The French Quarter. We saw the statue of Joan of Arc, the home of Marie Laveau, the Ursuline Covenant, the Lalaurie Mansion, the home of Jacque St. Germain (said to be the inspiration for one of Anne Rice’s “Interview wirh a Vampire” characters.Matt talked about voodoo, yellow fever, how control of this area moved from Spanish-to-French-to U.S. control, Andrew Jackson getting sued, and pirate Jean Lafitte, just to name a few.This was well worth the money and time!Insider Tip: the tour information says to look for a yellow umbrella. That umbrella apparently blew away in the hurricane, the umbrella is red now.Just ask anyone by the mules and carriages at the corner of Jackson Square. They were all super friendly and willing to help!

Just a fun time. Maybe not all factual stories but fun. The city is beautiful at night. 8 of us had a fun and relaxing time.

The food was incredible! So nice to sit in the restaurant and relax while trying the food. Did another food tour and had to eat on the sidewalk. The tour guide was so informative about the food and New Orleans history.

Our tour guide and little big boy were fantastic. There were fireworks and they did fantastic. Had to take a different route and the tour guide did the best he could.

I booked this tour for my family of four including a 12 year old son and 10 year old daughter. It was a very rainy evening, so we had the whole carriage to ourselves. Our guide was great! He asked how scary we wanted it and got it just right for a 10 year old at night. We went passed all of the important haunted locations and got to hear about their stories. One note, you should check the route ahead of time to make sure that your hotel isn’t one of the haunted locations if your crew scares easily - it’s basically the area northeast of Jackson square. I would recommend this tour over a walking tour as it feels a little safer from the spirits to be in a carriage. In all, we enjoyed it and were sufficiently spooked.

Matt & Armstrong did an amazing job! Great information and wonderful views of the sites, despite the rain. I would 5/5 recommend!

This company is the best, we were running late because of dinner and we asked if we could do a later tour and she said of course so we got to enjoy our dinner and had plenty of time to get to the tour. Our tour guide Casey was great. This was our 2nd time and did a walking tour the last time and we still learned new stories. It was raining so I liked it even more since we stayed dry since the carriage is covered. This was a highlight for our family.
