This was the first time my partner and I visited NOLA and taking this tour was one of our highlights of our trip! NOLA is filled with rich history and if you are interested in learning more about the spooky history we HIGHLY recommend booking this tour with Sarah D. I mistakenly bought VIP tickets which meant I paid a few dollars extra for tickets but the group was much smaller and it was adults only- it was 100% worth it! Sarah is an incredible storyteller, she made it fun yet provided so much knowledge given the topic and just had a way of captivating everyone’s attention (including my partner’s which is no easy task)! Overall this tour was a great way to see and learn about the city. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes as you’ll do a lot of walking and book the tour with Sarah D you will not regret it!
