    Tour was most educational and informing.

    The tour itself was outstanding. Our guide was most knowledgeable, very accomadating and professional. The entire walking tour was conducted in a drizzling rain but that did not stop the guide from doing an outstanding job.

    Cool Tour!

    voodoo was in the air during this tour. It was so exciting learning about something I didn't know much about (except from watching the skeleton key). The bus ride wasn't bad and didn't take long, and I had read the other reviews about how the tour guides were great, and I agree 100%.

    Cramped on the bus, but still fun

    The bus on the tour was a little cramped I felt, but the tour itself was great! responsible and knowledgeable tour guides, along with fairly spooky scenery made this trip a fun experience overall. The gris-gris bag was a great souvenir, and I want to practice voodoo now!
