She kept our group engaged and entertained for the duration of the tour and there was a great mix of fact and folklore in her tour. It did take a little while to get started because a lot... More

Was very boring, and not interesting at all. Would not recommend. Large group touring in middle of drunks on Bourbon street, competing with other tours. Spend your money touring Garden district much more interesting.

Not scary, so don't worry about kids. Traditions and beliefs of thebcity explained. We had also taken a french quarter walking tour from the hop on hop off bus so experienced some information overlap.

Gina was our tour guide. My friend and I went on an intimate tour around parts of New Orleans and learned a bit about its rich history. We absolutely enjoyed the tour and Gina is very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor as well! I highly suggest taking this tour if you are offered the chance and I... More

Bloody Mary is the new queen of voodoo and hoodoo in New Orleans. She's knowledgeable and engaged and will leave you will answers and more questions about the counter culture in New Orleans. We're honored to have filmed with her and even more honored to now know her! Fun shoot and awesome experience! Can't wait to come back!

Great tour guides, good stories and fun crowd. You get a real feel for the history of the FQ as well as a imaginary drift into the world of vampires, zombies and just all around weird stuff.

If you visit New Orleans, you definitely want Blood Mary as your tour guide. She is not only extremely informative but funny and charming. She also knows a lot of stuff other tour guides don't. I feel really sorry for people who take tours with other guides!

I enjoyed my Bloody Mary's Tour and am glad I did it. I enjoyed touring the cemetery and the end stop in Congo Square. The tour guide could have been a little louder, we could hear her, but I think other people the group were having issues hearing her.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
