One of the best tours I have been on. Definitely will be going again on our next trip. Never knew some of the history. Learned a lot

The driver was unapproachable, unfriendly, and even rude. She never introduced herself and I heard 2 other drivers introduce themselves...We didn't feel comfortable asking questions especially after she replied to a man, "I said that if you would have been listening " , when in actuality she had NOT specifically mentioned what he asked. She was even rude to the poor mule. She shouted at it, and mocked it because it slowed down and tried to avoid an object in the middle of the road. She had terrible personality and looked annoyed the entire time. I noticed that not 1 person tipped her and there were 8 people total, that's unusual, just shows I wasn't the only one who felt she did a poor job. I am not sure why the tour was titled a ghost tour. She vaguely mentioned a few stories but it just really did not impress me as a ghost tour at all. Better off doing a regular tour. I rate it a D because of the negative energy from the driver and not ghostly at all.

Magnolia was a trooper! We lost a rubber on our wheel and the tour guides brought us to the stable. The animals are well taken care of. A lot of great stories on the ride. A great way to see parts of NOLA.
Great tour!

Shannon was out driver and he was absolutely fantastic! He was funny and so informative. It was a great tour. We’d definitely do it again, especially if we could go with Shannon and Praline.

Wasn’t what we really expected. Only lasted 45 minutes NOT an hour. Was more of a history lesson. Info we already knew.
