What to expect

Maybe ghost stories don’t quite pique your interest, but you have that curiosity about the dark side of humanity. Some of the most terrifying things are what people do to each other, and perhaps you want to glimpse into this corrupt corner of existence.

We’ll bring you on a tour of the sordid details behind New Orleans’ dark, bloody murders. You’ll visit locations in the French Quarter where the echoes of gruesome crimes of murder still cry out.

This city, while soulful and charming, has always had a seedy side from its beginnings. From being settled by the dregs of France—people offered to be released from poorhouses and prisons if they boarded ship for Louisiana—to the delinquency and depravity of today, where the unspeakable still happens. On this tour you’ll see where it all happened, and understand the history behind it.
