The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
We Felt the Rich History and Past of New Orleans
How did you discover this activity?
I found the website link on a walking map of New Orleans.
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
I booked my trip on a Tuesday for a Friday night tour.
Why did you choose this activity?
I chose this activity because I have always been fascinated by the correlation between Voodoo and Catholicism.
How did you get to the activity location?
To get to the meeting place it was an easy Uber ride from my hotel. I actually could have walked there, but I had been walking all day and needed a little break.
What was your experience with the activity’s staff?
Our guide was very knowledgeable and I felt gave us the true stories, not just a preplanned spiel for tourists. She had personal stories that she shared with us, as well.
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
The best thing about this tour for me was how rich the history of the subject matter was, and how it can be felt just standing there surrounded by it. The buildings have remained the same, the churches still loom over the quarter, and even the cemeteries seem to be alive.
There is such a strong link between the past and the present, and our tour guide really showed that. This is a place that respects where it came from, and knows that you can’t move forward without respecting the past.
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
I would absolutely recommended this tour. If you are looking for just creepy Hollywood tales, this isn’t it. This tour presented real information about one of the oldest religions in the world.
