Best Ghost Tours in New Orleans

Beth D'Addono

LAST UPDATED BY Beth D'Addono October 5, 2022

New Orleans is often cited as being one of America's most haunted cities. Whether you're a believer in the spirit world or not, there's something decidedly eerie about walking through one of the city's famous cemeteries, the dead interred on top of the swampy ground instead of six feet under.   The city was an entry point for the country's slave trade, reason enough for the dead to haunt the living.  The city was also a major stomping ground for pirates, and was the birthplace of voodoo. Add in the mix of African, French and Spanish traditions and superstitions, and the stage is set for otherworldly visitors. 

The city has capitalized on its ghostly population. Realtors advertise when a historic home for sale is haunted, although there's an often-told story about a certain Nicholas Cage being unable to live in his famously haunted, now ex-abode in the Quarter.  There are lots of tour options to explore and exploit the city's sixth sense, some running at night, many with rambles through old tombs in the famous St. Louis Cemetery #1, the final resting place of voodoo queen Marie Laveaux — or is it? Whether you like your tour  over the top and theatrical or more historic, there is an experience for you. Most cater to kids and families, but some include stops for adult beverages in haunted pubs.

Ghost City Tours

Consistently making it to number one on popular tourism social media sites says something. Maybe it's because Ghost City Tours works with super guides, expert yarn spinners who stop short of melodrama. Then there's the Ghost of New Orleans tour, which is good for families with kids of all ages, another plus. Some tours are for the grown up ghostbusters only, including the Haunted Pub Crawl. The Ghosts of New Orleans is recommended for the family. Whether chasing down ghostly lore in cemeteries, dive bars, theaters or haunted mansions, Ghost City Tours delivers.

Recommended for Ghost Tours because : This company has a well-deserved reputation for authentic commentary.

Beth's expert tip : Book online to save 10 percent off the price of the tour.

The company's paranormal professionals guide you through New Orleans' most haunted locations, where the mysteries of ghosts, Voodoo, and vampires await.

Historic New Orleans Tours

You will venture to the Lalaurie Mansion, hear about the phantom of the Orleans Hotel, and shiver over the tale of the witch that makes her home at the French Opera - a tale of spurned young love getting even. The tour operates rain or shine, leaves from Bourbon Street and lasts around two hours. These tours don't trade in theatrics, but the guides are some of the most knowledgeable and informative on the circuit. Unlike some tours, the guides love taking questions which makes for a lively way to spend a few hours.

Recommended for Ghost Tours because : The emphasis is on historic tales, not the sensational kind, giving this company a strong niche.

Eschewing the usual ghost tour approach, Smith dives deep into Voodoo/Afro/Catholicism on his St. Louis Cemeteries No. 1 and No. 2 tours, points out haunted sites on his French Quarter tours and adds tidbits about 19th-century Afro-Creole Spiritualism in New Orleans, seances, mediums, that sort of thing.

During the Halloween months, the space operates as a haunted house, but for the rest of the year, it is open for ghost tours and overnight paranormal readings. The building operated as an actual mortuary during the 20th century and was also abandoned for a period of time during the 90s, at least by humans.

Haunted Places in New Orleans

  • Chevron down St. Louis Cemetery #1

New Orleans’ oldest above-ground cemetery was established in 1789. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the cemetery is the final resting place of well-known residents like Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau and William Claiborne, first American Governor of Louisiana. What really sets the cemetery apart is its above-ground tombs, distinct from other cemeteries throughout the country. Although you can’t visit at night, you just might get a feel for its eerie atmosphere on a tour during the day.

  • Chevron down The LaLaurie Mansion

Shows like “American Horror Story” have painted the LaLaurie Mansion as one of the most haunted locations in New Orleans…not that it needed the help. The grand house on Royal Street is infamous for once being home to Delphine LaLaurie, a woman who imprisoned and brutally tortured slaves in the house. There have been reports of paranormal activity in the home for over 200 years, with visitors claiming to have been taken over by negative energy. The ghosts are thought to be those of the people who lost their lives at the hands of LaLaurie.

  • Chevron down The Sultan’s Palace

Still standing on Dauphine Street, the 1800s Sultan’s Palace is the site of a grisly murder and years of subsequent hauntings. A Turkish man who claimed to be a sultan purchased the home from a wealthy plantation owner and turned it into a spectacle of ongoing parties and lavish events. One morning, a passerby noticed blood seeping down the front steps of the palace…and the rest is history. The house is now a private home, but you can still get a glimpse from the outside and imagine the horror within. Various visitors and residents of the home have experienced their share of paranormal events over the years, like a dog being pushed down the stairs by some invisible force. We’re happy to stay outside.

  • Chevron down New Orleans Pharmacy Museum

One of NOLA’s most popular museums , the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum houses an impressive collection of pharmaceutical artifacts like old surgical devices and voodoo potions…not to mention its own in-house ghost! The ghost of former resident Dr. Dupas is said to wreak havoc at night, setting off the security system and moving displays around. That might not seem too bad on its own, but you might think twice given the man’s sinister past. He’s said to have performed fatal medical experiments on pregnant women.

  • Chevron down The UpStairs Lounge

The UpStairs Lounge was a gay bar located directly over the Jimani Bar on Chartres St. In 1973, an unknown arsonist set fire to the Lounge, trapping dozens of people inside. The blaze killed 32 people, and its effects can still be felt today. Patrons of the Jimani Bar, still in business today, often feel icy chills, hear strange whispers, and notice the faint smell of smoke.

French Quarter Ghosts and Ghouls of New Orleans

Blood and magic: voodoo and vampire true crime tour, new orleans ghosts boos and booze haunted pub crawl, visit the haunted lalaurie mansion and more on the new orleans ghost tour.

Witches, Voodoo queens, and vampires run parallel to the world-renowned celebrations and party-loving tourists that flood the city year after year. New Orleans holds a special place in the United States yet acts as a world all its own. There is no shortage of oddities in The Big Easy, each offering a unique reason for the myriad of visitors that make the journey.

New Orleans’ primary claim to fame is the nonstop party that is Mardi Gras, as well as its unrivaled Jazz music, exquisite Creole cuisine, and eccentric attractions. But its party atmosphere can’t mask its dark roots that feed evil into the city’s deadly underbelly.

Mansions with tortured souls as inhabitants, Squares that served as execution sites, voodoo used for spells and possession, and cemeteries filled with the spirits of NOLA’s demented past have created a city unlike any other—a city where the dead dance with the living and black magic is in the air.

The Otherworldly Side of New Orleans

From Civil War soldiers to tortured slaves, Great Fires, and even murdered mafia hitmen, the ghosts of New Orleans are as varied as the city itself. Stand in the very streets where Madame Laveau, a Louisiana Creole VooDoo practitioner and “Queen of Voodoo, gained notoriety for her spells and undeniable abilities. Today, her gravesite remains a shrine and place where people continue to request her magic be done.

Visit sites that were tragically affected by the Great Fires, including The Andrew Jackson Hotel. Located on the grounds where The Great Fire of 1794 claimed a boarding school and the lives of five boys, the hotel is known for its eerie activity and spooky haunts. And each location only gets creepier and darker from there.

Visit NOLA’s Most Haunted Locations, Including:

The lalaurie mansion.

Madame Marie Delphine McCarty was born into a wealthy family, and along with her third husband, Frenchman M. LaLaurie, became the toast of the town. During one of their extravagant parties, a fire broke out, exposing the couple’s darkest, most horrid secret: the captivity and treatment of her slaves. Today, it’s known as one of the most haunted homes in New Orleans and quite possibly the nation.

Old Ursuline Convent

The Old Ursuline Convent is one of the oldest buildings in the Mississippi Valley, once housing the French order of Ursuline nuns and orphan girls from French convents. Sent to the new world as potential suitors for French men making their fortunes in French Louisiana’s colonies, it’s believed the girls brought European vampires with them upon their arrival.

Jackson Square

Named after then-General Andrew Jackson, Jackson Square once served two purposes for the city: ceremonies and parades and public executions. The unnerving sounds of screams from the condemned can still be heard in the square, and some have reported even seeing the former slave turned executioner, Louis Congo himself.

Haunted New Orleans: Voodoo, Vampires, Murder, and Mystery

The mystique of NOLA is amplified by strange, unexplained, and fantastic hauntings that have made the city one of the most haunted in America. New Orleans Ghosts takes you on a journey to answer the who, what, how, and why behind the city’s notorious history of tragedy, mystery, and death.

The Shaping of a Spectral City

From its inception, New Orleans has been the site of some unbelievable and horrific events. This perfect melting pot of occurrences has created terrifying activity that continues to both intrigues and baffles all those who visit The Big Easy.

1817-1905: Yellow Fever Ravages the City

The 1800s and early 1900s were a trying time for New Orleans. The Yellow Fever outbreak claimed the lives of thousands in unimaginable fashion, with symptoms ranging from fever and chills to the hemorrhaging of blood from various bodily orifices. Bodies piled up, so much so that the city established a designated area for them to keep them away from the rest of the population, but to no avail.

Patients were often taken to the Pharmacy Museum in the hopes that they would be cured. Instead, most were experimented on and ended up in worse shape than when they arrived. Today, the Pharmacy Museum is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in New Orleans, overtaken by the spirits of that dismal time.

The Great Fires of 1788 and 1794

Before Yellow Fever threatened to wipe out the people of NOLA, two Great Fires ripped through the area, nearly burning the entire city to the ground. In 1788, a fire sparked in the home of the Treasurer and Paymaster of the Spanish Army, destroying more than 850 structures and killing thousands. The fire of 1794 was minimal compared to its predecessor though it still claimed over 200 more structures.

The buildings were all reconstructed, but they weren’t the only casualties of the Fires that were resurrected. The victims of these destructive fires can be seen and felt all over the city. Some are more prominent in particular areas, such as Muriel’s Jackson Square, which was rebuilt only to experience another horrific tragedy.

Voodoo Makes Its Way to The Big Easy

This misunderstood practice is one that New Orleans is well-known for. Brought to New Orleans in the 1700s by slaves, it was Madame Marie Laveau, who would go on to become the “Queen of Voodoo” for her success in the practice in the 1800s.

Though historians debate her actual abilities, it hasn’t stopped her reputation from continuing to draw crowds from all over the globe. Her prominence and promotion of the practice have influenced various forms of entertainment, with American Horror Story: Coven being one of the most known in pop culture.

Experience the Otherworldly Side of New Orleans

Whether you’re visiting for Mardi Gras or looking to take in the best Jazz music in the nation, you can’t leave NOLA without experiencing the side of the city that gives it its haunted reputation. You don’t have to believe in ghosts to take a New Orleans Ghosts tour – you just need to be prepared.

Famous Haunted Faces of New Orleans

The most well-known of the spirits of NOLA is that of Madame Laveau, who is still sought-after even in the afterlife. Her spirit is said to be seen at her Voodoo shop as well as her gravesite, still powerful enough to grant wishes.

The Beauregard-Keyes House is named after the occupants who inhabited it while living and continue to inhabit it in death. Though they occupied the home nearly 100 years apart, it’s said that Francis Parkinson Keyes befriended the ghost of General Beauregard, choosing to join him in the home following her passing. And both of whom are still seen to this day.

We encourage you to use the EMF detectors available during your tour, as they’ll give you an idea of New Orleans’s most active areas. Even if you consider yourself a non-believer, we ask that you keep an open mind and get ready to get a history lesson of New Orleans you won’t experience anywhere else.

scariest ghost tour new orleans

Founded in 1718, New Orleans has long been regarded as one of the America’s oldest and most haunted cities. From her birth as a French Colony to her coronation as the Crowning Jewel of the South, New Orleans has suffered a long history of death and destruction that has threatened the soul of the city as well as her inhabitants. Floods, fires, rampant disease outbreaks, and cold- blooded murders have left a veil over the city, a veil that is often lifted when the souls of the dead return to remind the living of their tortured past.

As we approach the 300th birthday of New Orleans, one must wonder if the souls of her long forgotten deceased will soon return to participate in this gala. Will the dearly and not- so- dearly departed return once again to celebrate alongside the living? In 2010 the New Orleans Ghost Hunters sought out to answer this very question. After several years of research, they have their answer.

The New Orleans Ghost Hunters was formed through a collaboration of professional individuals who had spent their entire lives in the Crescent City. Paranormal experiences each had growing up left them with two burning questions: are ghost real and can we capture physical evidence of paranormal activity? Since their conception the New Orleans Ghost Hunters have investigated numerous residential and historical locations. Their experiences and expertise in the field has led to them hosting paranormal conventions and a local and now international talk radio show and appearing as guest speakers at Wizard Word and on T.V.

The New Orleans Ghost Hunters now reveal their long awaited answer in their “Ghosts of the French Quarter Tour”. Join your tour guide, co- founder, and lead investigator of the New Orleans Ghost Hunters, David Laville, as he takes you on a 90 minute walking tour through the most concentrated area of paranormal activity in the French Quarter. You will journey to the scenes of infamous duels, cold- blooded murders, yellow fever outbreaks, and lost loves. Learn about the city and why those who call her home refuse to leave her even after their earthly time is up. Hear the true stories from those who have actually investigated the locations and decide for yourself what secrets the city holds. Will this be the night the city allows you to see her past?
