    What to Expect
    Celebrate Carnival season—or any time of year—with this insider’s tour of America's most decadent and haunted city. Meet your guide in the heart of the French Quarter, and set off on a leisurely 2-hour walking tour through New Orleans culture, history, and legends. See where the world-famous Mardi Gras parade kicks off each year, and visit the locations of time-honored Carnival traditions.

    Along the way, learn about the city’s unique confluence of cultures, and hear stories of famous former and current residents—from pirates and prostitutes to Hollywood celebrities who have set up house in the neighborhood’s historic Creole mansions. Stand before some the most beautiful homes of the Quarter, and visit several national historic landmarks including St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, and the Old Ursuline Convent.

    While New Orleans is filled with mirth and celebration during Mardi Gras, a more sinister side also lurks among the storied streets. Learn how the city earned its haunted reputation as you stroll past notorious sites known for wandering spirits, ghost sightings, and vampire legends. If you like, engage in a bit of ghost hunting yourself with a provided EMF meter and paranormal detector. You might be surprised at what you find.
