History & Haunts

The nighttime carriage tour highlights both the history and the hauntings that the French Quarter is most known for!

#1 Carriage Tour on TripAdvisor. 

Royal Carriages is the premier carriage tour company in New Orleans, and the History & Haunts nighttime tour is a thrilling insider's view of the French Quarter after dark. With a knowledgeable and hospitable tour guide, you'll trot around the Quarter's streets hearing tales of ghosts and ghouls. What a wonderful way to see the town, learn a bit of history, and experience a one-of-a-kind adventure!

"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!"

Some tour guides, you can just tell, stick to the trained script and are doing a job. The better ones, that I really appreciate, have a personal interest and passion for the topic or place they are introducing people to. Throw in a great sense of humor and you have a winner of an event. Scott is a transplant from up north and that just makes his love of the area and the history of the city and it's culture stronger and more apparent. Find Scott.. you'll laugh a lot, learn a lot and have a hell of a time.
