True Crime Tour: Our favorite experience in New Orleans

Our true crime tour guide, David, was an incredibly guide and storyteller. His knowledge and passion for the area and its history were truly infectious!

Not a great experience
Darcy_S

The host Of the tour was very monotone and did not take us to any exciting places to see where these things happen. I actually walked away from the group halfway through and went on my own way to do something different.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
Honestly, I do not think this is a review of a tour with us. None of the guides we employ are even close to being monotone, and they all stop at locations that are part of the stories they are telling. I am sorry that you had a bad tour experience with a guide and for the life of me can not think of one guide that works for us that it can be. Please contact our office and ask for Monique. I want to investigate this situation.

fascinating TRUE crime tour based 100% on real life
Elizabeth_L
, Dec 2021
Randy was an incredibly informed storyteller; the stories were appropriately creepy and I didn't know most of them. Definitely not a tour for the faint-hearted (think dismemberment!), especially since everything on the tour was 100% true and not paranormal, but if you're a true crime fan, this is a must and Randy will give you an entertaining time!

The guide for this tour Randy was amazing! So animated and everything he told us on the tour was true. I highly highly recommend this tour. The haunted tour didn't even come close to how awesome this tour was. If you are into true crime stories, this is the tour for you!!!

Randy Randy was an amazing tour guide! Super funny and informative. He cut through all the sensationalized and fabricated BS of each story and hit us with the gory truth. Definitely a MUST when you visit NOLA. - Your friends from NYC (Steph & Louie)

Would not recommend.
Stephanie_D
, Oct 2021
Our tour guide, David, was intoxicated, distracted, and insulting. He did not know any actual history, got the stories mixed up, trailed off without finishing sentences, and spent most of the time on the life story of one guy who killed himself instead of giving any details about the crimes themselves. One couple even left during the tour - and j understand, I wanted to leave, too. Would not recommend.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
So sorry that you did not enjoy your tour. I am going to thoroughly investigate what was going on with this tour and take appropriate actions. Again, I am sorry that this was your experience, and we strive to make our tours a highlight of our guests' vacations.

Do not wast your money

Do not waste your money! The true crime stories had vey little connection or relevance to New Orleans except for two stops. Also, our tour guide was drunk and kept mixing up details.

Randy was a GREAT tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We got true crime stories, not urban legends. Randy showed us that true crime really is scarier than ghost stories.
