What you'll do

Mansions | Cemetery | History | Celebrities First off our SMALL group will spend a little time getting to know each other - we want it to feel like we're all hanging out with friends! In the lovely Garden District you'll have a very different experience than in the French Quarter. It has a slow paced atmosphere reminiscent of lazy summer days and mint juleps. And the huge mansions with their antique southern charm complete the picture. To unlock and appreciate the secrets of this wealthy neighborhood you'll need an experienced guide. To start we'll stand outside of Lafayette Cemetery (currently closed for repairs) and talk about our fascinating and unique burial methods. Then we'll take a stroll through the gorgeous Garden District where we might even catch a glimpse of a celebrity! The beautiful antebellum homes are breathtaking , and the stories that accompany them are always entertaining and sometimes even shocking. Halfway through we'll take a mid-tour break at a local coffee shop to grab for coffee or snack, and use the restroom Over the past 2 years more than 1000 guests have joined us on this tour and we've lost count of how many of them have told us it was the highlight of their trip to New Orleans. Our guests routinely fall in love with New Orleans' past and come away with a much deeper appreciation and understanding of our great city. www.spectralcitytours.com

Your hosts

We're Pandora & Jackson, a team of two engaging, high-energy, and fun tour guides. One of us was born in NOLA, the other transplanted, but we're both head over heels in love with our city. Together we've given over a thousand tours! New Orleans has a rich tradition of oral histories and legends that we've dedicated ourselves to learning and passing on to our guests. And this being New Orleans, these stories are NOT dry or boring. Humor and a sense of playfulness is so important in capturing the spirit of New Orleans' history, especially the morbid parts (and there are a lot of those!). We each chose to put down roots in New Orleans because it's a place that speaks to us on a deep level. Being able to make a living by sharing our connection and love for this city with guests from around the world is a dream come true!
