Itinerary

For your Private New Orleans Night Tour, clients need to meet the tour guide Randy Bibb, at Pirates Alley Cafe, 622 Pirates Alley,behind St. Louis Cathedral.

Walk through the darkened streets of the Vieux Carre (also known as ‘the French Quarter’), the oldest part of New Orleans. Often referred to as the ‘most haunted city in America’, New Orleans has been investigated by paranormal investigators and featured in many stories on the History Channel and Discovery Channel.

As you walk the narrow lanes, your guide will point out the city’s most famous haunted houses and keep you spell-bound with bone-chilling narratives.

Discover the gruesome history of the Lalaurie Mansion, arguably the most haunted house in town. Here, before a fire in 1835 exposed their foul deeds, the socialite couple Dr Lalaurie and his wife Delphine conducted horrific grisly medical experiments on their unfortunate slaves.

More horror stories await at the Sultan’s retreat, said to be the site of the mass murder of a Turkish aristocrat and his entire harem.

Hear about the apparition known as the ‘Witch of the Opera House’. In times gone by, this female figure, dressed in old-fashioned mourning dress, was seen walking nightly from the Old Opera House on Rue St Anne. She was said to be the ghost of a Creole widow who had killed her faithless young lover and his paramour.

End the tour with a luxurious dinner at Arnaud’s restaurant, one of New Orleans’ finest restaurants.
