Það sem verður gert

This is the one that's fun!

Expect a few laughs, a few 'aha moments', and a little morbidity.

Think 'Drunk History' style.

A small group of up to 8 guests. We’ll get to know each other for a few minutes like where everybody is from, what other tours they’ve done, interests, and such. We will walk a few blocks with plenty of pausing along the way as I humorously share our history from the 1680s up to the Jazz Age.

Once in the cemetery, I will relay how our entombment practices work and all the real estate options in the 'city of the dead': family tombs, wall vaults, and benevolent societies. We'll see the tombs of such notables as Nicolas Cage (future), Battle of New Orleans veterans, Homer Plessy, and the Voodoo queen herself -- Marie Laveau!

By the time we’re done, all the seemingly unrelated tales are weaved into a tapestry that is uniquely New Orleans. Ironically, this tour is one of the most fun and funniest tours while still being informative.

I’m Brian, and the French Quarter is my home. I’m a natural born storyteller and know the real New Orleans -- its history, its folklore, and its legends. You can learn more about our city from the dead than the living. I’m passionate about sharing my city and the 'city of the dead' with others in a lighthearted and 'drunk history' sort of spirit. I had a midlife crisis and, instead of buying a sports car or Harley, I quit my real job and became a full-time tour guide and raconteur. I have done thousands of tours. I’m a high-energy, funny, and charismatic speaker. Point is: expect to be entertained as well as informed. If you would like to read some of my over one-thousand 5-star reviews, google 'Brian cemetery and voodoo tour guide New Orleans'. Also check out my 'Haunted AF French Quarter Tour' reviews on Airbnb.

Staðsetning

In this walk, we'll see St Louis Cathedral, Mortuary Chapel, Basin Street Station, family tombs, benevolent society tombs, wall vaults, the tombs of such notables as Nicolas Cage (future), Battle of New Orleans veterans, Homer Plessy, and the Voodoo queen herself -- Marie Laveau! Additionally, there will be many moments I might just stop and share a random fact -- That's called a lagniappe (lan-yap) in New Orleans. . .A little something extra.

This was an awesome tour! Brian shared fun facts and great information in an easy to understand way that left me wishing the tour was even longer.

Brian is the absolute best! We could’ve spent the entire day hanging out with him and that’s no exaggeration. His passion and love for the city is absolutely infectious. He was funny, personable and super knowledgeable. You will not be disappointed.

A fun and informative way to spend a couple of hours. Brian is irreverent, informed, interesting and entertaining - he was a most engaging and fun host bringing to life the history and quirkiness of NOLA. It was well worthwhile to pay a little more to be in a small group. I just wish I'd brought along a hip flask or something else to 'enhance' the experience.

Brian was really enthusiastic and fun. We definitely felt like we got a good guide. History part was mostly the history of burials in the New Orleans area, which was fascinating, but it wasn’t a general history of New Orleans like we were expecting. Definitely worth the time and money.

Fleiri ábendingar

You're in New Orleans, and I highly recommend making some poor life choices while you're here -- I'm not judging. But please avoid getting too 'lit' prior to this or any tour...maybe just a buzz. :-)

Hvað þarf að taka með

A little cash -- many establishments in the FQ are cash only

Water is always a good thing
