What we chose to do
The hotel we were staying in had a ton of pamphlets, and my daughter picked up this tour pamphlet.
The day before we went on the tour.
My daughter really wanted to go on this tour. She’s fascinated with ghosts and thought this would be fun.
We Ubered to the tour bus.
Paul was funny, knowledgeable, and very entertaining. He was great at interacting with us all.
Seeing the charity graveyard with the remaining unidentified 80 bodies from Hurricane Katrina was definitely the highlight. To be able to show our respect to those lost was most amazing and humbling.
Learning why the graves are raised and how it worked in the Catholic and Jewish religions was so interesting.
The ghost stories and the story of the axeman and Madame LaLaurie were interesting.
My daughter learned so much on the tour that interested her that she searched books of New Orleans' history and ordered several.
Yes! Paul was so amazing and the tour was entertaining and informative. It worked well for me and my daughter because I felt safe on the tour, which was obviously important to me because I had my 13-year-old child with me.
It was nice to hope on and off the tour bus.
