New Orleans Ghost Tour Reviews

HIGHLIGHT OF MY TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS
"Anyone coming to New Orleans needs to do the History and Haunts Carriage Tour. I thought I knew a lot about New Orleans, but I learned so much about details they don't print in the history books. I'm glad we ended up doing this tour on our first night because throughout our trip the stories came flooding back. Do this tour. Do it first. Then do another. Thank you, Royal Carriages! We will never forget you, and we'll definitely be back!"
