Embrace the mercurial magic of New Orleans on this Walking The Devil's Empire Tour. Uncover murder, music, mayhem, and more. All travelers meet under the glowing arch of Armstrong Park, set on the edge of the French Quarter and adjacent to one of the richest pieces of African history in North America, Congo Square. It is here where some of the earliest gatherings of Voodoo and Hoodoo practitioners took place. Depending on your guide, you might take a short walk near the old Parish Prison, the haunting site of one of the awakening of The American Mafia. Hear hidden, but very true history of organized crime in North America, from the largest mass lynching in U.S. history, to what would become one of nation’s most notorious and unsolved cases of serial murder: the dreaded Axe-man. For those who love more recent macabre moments, tour-goers might request the tragic, ripped-from-the-headlines reality of a pair of star-crossed lovers whose relationship ended in dismemberment and demonic possession. Then you will end at Madam Lalaurie's home and learn about what happened within the walls. If you are ready to be spooked, book your True Crime, Ghost, Voodoo, and Vampire tour today.
