Great experience with NOLA Ghostriders!
Jayme_L

Our tour was amazing, even a full blown thunderstorm could not stop our guide Steven from giving us all a fun and information filled journey. The respect and love for his city were apparent in his excitement to share these historic places and people with us. When we signed up, we were not clear that there would be a ghost "hunting" portion to the tour, but all parties embraced and appreciated this experience. In fact, we may have found a new interest for our friend group. It was a fantastic opportunity and we are all glad that we were able to attend.

I am a skeptical of ghosts/spirits, but I was the only skeptical out of a group of nine so I went along. Still skeptical, but our tour guide Kendall made the trip worth while. Believer or not, he'll make your tour enjoyable!

Henry was a fantastic tour guide! He was a very engaging and took time to get to know everyone on the tour. We got to learn so much about burial practices in NOLA and the reasons behind their practices. We also got to see a wide range of burial spots from hundreds of years ago to Covid times. We also got to see spots in the millions to spots for the average families including RENTERS! Then, we got to visit a different cemetery where we were able to explore some sad stories and try to connect with those still around. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip and will recommend it and my guide, Henry! As a safety precaution, I never carry cash when traveling alone. So, I wish there was an option to send a tip via an app. That would be the only change because I really wanted to tip.

This was such a fun tour. We had a blast. Steve, the tour guide was fantastic. He was so funny and knowable about the city. The only negative was Steve spoke very fast but I’m sure he was trying to get us all the info.

Great Time With Host Henry!!!

Henry was such a wonderful host, we truly had a party with him and all of us really enjoyed ourselves, the cemeteries were spooky and my sister and I had a whole conversation with with spirit using ghost hunting tools, we felt strange sensations of people grabbing at our legs and holding our hands and no one was there even stranger my sister was lead directly to a grave that has her unique name on it. Very powerful time, we enjoyed it. Also along the way they stop for treats like gumbo, bingets and coffee, get the mango frozen treat you’ll love your life. Great time!!!

Henry/Daryl is an engaging and animated guide. He made us feel so welcomed and answered any questions we had about the paranormal activity and the burial traditions/rituals here in NOLA. He even took us to this amazing 24 hour cafe that sells some of the local delicacies, but also has the best beignets I've had. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and letting us be part of this amazing experience.

Our tour guide Kendall was excellent. He was funny and kept the group energetic. Good storyteller as well. We learned about how the burial set up. In the end we even got to make contact w spirits. Yes it actually worked. 11/10 should definitely go in this tour.

Henry was a great tour guide! The pride he had for his hometown was evident through his knowledge and the care he took in telling stories. I learned a lot I didn’t know about the burying methods in New Orleans. I wish there were more ghost stories shared, but it was a great length of time and we had a lot of fun!

Ride on a loud bus
Jill_S
, Jun 2022
We stopped at 1 cemetery and heard about burial practices- interesting. Then there was a 25-30 minute stop at a plaza which was not on the description and a waste of time. One more cemetery stop with a brief description of ppl buried there. No ghost stories or history of New Orleans. Very disappointing and would not recommend.

This is a bus ride to a cemetery. Nothing more.

We listen to music while driving to a cemetery, got out walked a small square area and learned burial methods then drove to convenience place where we stopped almost 30 minutes before heading to another cemetery where we learned a bit about it and stood there. No ambiance, ghost stories, or history. This was off so bad that I suggest the company won’t even get it until they actually visit another city and do a ghost tour.

Graveyard and Ghost Tour with Fernando
Kamala_W
, Jun 2022
This was absolutely the most fun tour we have taken in New Orleans. Fernando was our guide and he brought it to life. Very educational for those who enjoy the history component and a ton of fun all at the same time. Fernando was personable and had time for all of our questions. He was by far the best tour guide I’ve seen in New Orleans.
