Haunted Asylum Ghost Hunt

Asylum3.jpg

Haunted Asylum Ghost Hunt

$49.95 per person. Tours Wed-Sun at 7pm & 10pm. Ages 12 and up only. 

This is the most authentic and exclusive haunted experience in New Orleans. You'll become a paranormal investigator for the night as you tour a haunted "infant asylum" with members of the New Orleans Paranormal Society.

Asylum.jpg

Very Small Groups

This tour has extremely limited availability. Please contact before you checkout us to ensure we have room for you. Call (888) 481-8188 or use our live chat feature.

Participants will explore St. Vincent's Infant Asylum, which was built in 1861 to house children orphaned aged 0-7 years old during the Civil War and Yellow Fever epidemic. Not all of the children placed in St. Vincent's care survived...

Today the building is a guest house, but the children who died there are still heard laughing and playing in the halls. An apparition of a nun is often reported by visitors.

EMF meters, REM pods, and other equipment are provided to help you investigate the paranormal activity inside this haunted orphanage.  

The building is scheduled for a major renovation in mid-2018, giving guests a narrow window of opportunity to see the asylum in it's current haunted state.

This is the most exclusive haunted tour we offer. We take only 15 people per tour time, meaning there is extremely limited availability and the tour generally sells out several days in advance. Guests should book as far in advance as possible. 

The tour meets just a mile and half from the French Quarter in the Lower Garden District neighborhood. There is free onsite parking. 

  • $49.95 per person ($20 per person due at checkout, balance due at time of tour).
  • The tours are Wednesday through Sunday at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. (no tours on Monday or Tuesday)
    • Because of limited availability, we recommend you book this tour at least seven days ahead of your desired tour date. To double check availability for last minute reservations, please call (888) 481-8188 or use our live chat feature before you checkout. 
  • The tour begins at St. Vincent's Guest House, 1507 Magazine Street. Free parking is available or take a taxi. Advanced reservations are required and walk ups are not accepted. 
  • Guests must be at least 12 years or older.  
  • Tour length is 2 hours.
  • Wear comfortable shoes.

We had a large party of 18 people and did the ghost tour and swamp tour. Everyone had an amazing time. Highly recommend both tours! Leonard was great and quick to reply to all my questions. Thank you for making our tours seamless!

Graveyard & Ghost Bus Tour

Ghost_Graveyards_Bus.jpg

Graveyard & Ghost Bus Tour

$45 per person. 7 pm or 9:30 pm nightly. 

Many Big Easy visitors never venture much farther from their hotel than the touristy confines of Bourbon Street. That's pretty scary, if you ask us! 

But some of New Orleans' creepiest haunted locations are found only in neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter.

These are ghastly places where walking alone at night might give you pause. But surrounded safely by friendly fellow ghost adventurers, the haunted history comes alive.

To experience these frightful stories, you'll climb aboard a comfortable, air conditioned shuttle and escape into the night with your licensed tour guide leading the way. 

Over the course of two hours, you'll hear real stories of murder and betrayal and see the places where they occurred, along with some of the scariest ghost stories and urban legends the city has to offer. 

In perhaps the highlight of the trip, you'll stop at one of New Orleans' famed above-ground cemeteries, allowing you to make a rare visit to our "Cities of the Dead" in the "dead of night."

Most cemeteries in New Orleans close at dusk or earlier in an effort to protect the historically significant mausoleums, but we will take you to one of the few cemeteries that permits visitors after dark. It's truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! 

You'll also enjoy a mid-tour break at Morning Call, a cafe nestled among the centuries old oaks of New Orleans City Park.

Vampires of the French Quarter Walking Tour

$25 per person. 8:30 p.m. nightly. 

New Orleans became most famous for its vampires when Anne Rice started writing about Louis and Lestat in the 1970s, but on this tour you'll learn that the stories in "Interview With A Vampire" have some historical weight behind them, stretching all the way back to the late 1700s.

$25 per person. The tour begins at 8:30 p.m. nightly. 

 


Ghost & Legends Walking Tour

ghosttour1.png

Ghost & Legends Walking Tour

$25 per person. 6 pm or 8 pm nightly. 

You'll see and experience the haunted legends that simply won't die on this theatrical French Quarter ghost tour.

This tour skips the vampires and focuses in on the most famous historical hauntings in New Orleans' oldest neighborhood.

$25 per person. Tours begin at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. nightly. 


Have a Drink! Our walking tours start at a pub (but kids are allowed in) and stop at a bar halfway through. If you get there early, you can take advantage of our drink special: two for one hurricanes (rum punch) in the hour leading up to the tour. Our bus tour also includes a refreshment break

An Easy Walk:  The walking tours are less than a mile walking and under two hours in length with a break in the middle. It's an easy stroll at a leisurely pace, and you stop a lot. 

Bring your cameras: Many guests report capturing orbs and other unexplained images in their photography. Show your tour guide. They may be able to tell you if you captured anything significant. 

Famous Haunted Locations May Vary: Our Ghost & Vampire Combo Tour and our Ghosts and Legends Tour both usually visit the infamous LaLaurie Mansion and many other famous haunted locations. You may visit places that were featured on American Horror Story: Coven, Ghost Adventures and Interview With a Vampire. Keep in mind that tour guides even within the same company often take different routes, tell different stories and do their own independent research. 

Licensed Tour Guides: Tour guides sometimes get a bad rap, but New Orleans has unusually high standards. City law mandates that every tour guide in New Orleans pass a rigorous history and safety exam administered by city officials before being granted a tour guide's license. You can rest assured you're in good hands when you're on one of our tours.
