We had an amazing spooky carriage ride through the French Quarter with Royal Carriages. Emilie had some good stories and information on some of the local haunts and her trusty steed Juneau did a good job of pulling us through the streets.

Our guide/ driver Emily (I believe) Was fantastic she was so sweet and very informative. Our donkey Juno was amazing as well! We enjoyed this ride so much and learned so many things about New Orleans and enjoyed the history as well as the ghost stories too! This was the last night of our week in NOLA and she really made our trip complete and ended on a wonderful time !!
