Fun but not great
Sarah_H, Apr 2024
Tour was okay. Guide kept telling us bad experiences with previous groups and complaining about their ratings. Perhaps she did the same to them. Also at the end she was shaming people about amount of tip. The tour itself was entertaining. I would have liked more history.
Great!
alicemortiz, Apr 2024
Jodi was great! She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She also has done her research and added a lot of great historical details.
So fun!
Erik_J, Apr 2024
The guy did a great job. Looked the part. Loved that he knew the history of the area. Really brought it to life.
Worth it
Kyle_M, Apr 2024
The tour guide was amazing and very thoughtful ❤️ did not end up going through the whole tour but was very understanding
Cool but too long.
Jacquelyn_V, Apr 2024
Wish stayed with in the scheduled time. 1 hour and 30 min people have other things to do and schedule their trip plans. Wasn’t able to finish whole thing bc was 2 hours and 15 min!
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Hi there. We're so glad you enjoyed your tour! It sounds like your group got a little extra time-- this can happen with certain groups. Thanks so much for sticking around for the full tour!
GREAT Voodoo, ghosts and vampires tour!
Wendy_A, Apr 2024
Jodi was very entertaining and gave us an awesome tour! She put lots of time and attention into researching history and facts and incorporated them into a very inclusive story about each stop. Her sense of humor added to the experience. She also related well to each member of the tour group. We had a lot of fun!
Fun
Taylor_J, Apr 2024
My husband and I thought it was a great tour! Mia our tour guide was knowledgeable about the locations we were able to view and photograph. We got to learn about the cities history and haunts. Very interesting. Thank you for a great tour Mia!
Save your money
Kellie_D, Apr 2024
The mention of going to the pharmacy museum and that there is a charge is for entry not clear as the reason we picked this tour was to go to the museum. Also maybe not tell the group to go in the Ansinthe Bar if you are not making an actual stop there, then leave people behind. $80 VIP for what?
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Hi Kellie! We'd love to know what happened here so we can fix this for you--please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com. Thank you!
Excellent, not scary
David_W, Apr 2024
Chris did an excellent job bringing the darker side of New Orleans to light. Worth the price but don't expect a scary or harrowing experience!
Wonderful tour and guide!!
Marcia_B, Apr 2024
I can't say enough good things about our guide, Mac. He was very knowledgeable about the area, gave us some great information and was super friendly! I totally enjoyed my tour with him! 5+ stars!!!
VIP tour
JohnMark_M, Apr 2024
We got the VIP tour; Graham was great and a little quirky, which adds to the experience. Made NOLA more real.
Interesting and Engaging
Michael_T, Apr 2024
Erin was awesome and very engaging. The history mixed with rumors made for fantastic stories that left you wanting more.
Interesting but not worth the price
Nicolas_O, Apr 2024
Stories told by the guide were very interesting, however the tour last for 2 hours but it's mainly walking without explanations. Also the group is too big for that kind of tour to my opinion. There is a 20 minutes pause where they encourage to take a drink at a partner bar...
Response from Host, Apr 2024
Hi Nicolas. It sounds like you loved the tour, but not the break. First, we want to specify that NO bars in the French Quarter are "partner" bars. We recieve nothing from offering this bar break, other than giving our guests a place to take a rest. I'm sorry if there was confusion in this area! That said, we'd love to know how we could have made this better for you. Please reach out to us at manager@witchesbrewtours.com. Thank you for your feedback!
Great tour
Donald_D, Apr 2024

Details about some of strange events in New Orleans ; Jodi was a great guide and her voice was easy to hear for me as I wear hearing aids.

It was cool to see the house where Interview with the Vampire was filmed. Tour was a bit too long though.
Response from Host, Apr 2024

Robert_H, Apr 2024
Robbie was an excellent tour guide! I would recommend him as a tour guide to anyone. I didn’t think a ghost tour would pique my interest but it was very interesting.
