What you'll do
This is the one that's fun! Expect a few laughs, a few chills, and a little morbidity. Think 'Drunk History' style haunted tour. A walking tour of no more than 14 guests. We’ll get to know each other at the top of the tour--where everybody is from, what other tours they’ve been on, interests, and such. I will customize a walk to include everyone’s interests, ghostly, morbid, or historical. Once underway, we will walk about 1.25 miles (2 km) along the sidewalks of the French Quarter. It won’t be like a death march -- there will be plenty of stopping as I share the stories of the homes, businesses, galleries, and alleyways along the way. Sometimes we’ll even make it to the banks of the mighty Mississippi. Along this walk I will share legends of ghosts, werewolves, vampires, Voodoo, witchcraft, pirates, serial killers, and whatever else comes to mind. I'll sneak in some history, architecture, and such -- you won't even know it happened. There will be a bar break halfway through the tour, and a family friendly option too. We will end up back or near where we started. www.brianthetourguide.com
I’m Brian, and the French Quarter is my home. I’m a natural born storyteller and know the real New Orleans -- its history, its folklore, and its legends. I share the stories that have been passed down over hundreds of years the way our bartenders and grandparents told them to us. I’m passionate about sharing my city with others in a lighthearted and 'drunk history' sort of spirit. I had a midlife crisis and instead of buying a sports car or Harley, I quit my real job and became a full-time tour guide and raconteur. I have done thousands of tours. I’m a high-energy, funny, and charismatic speaker. Point is: expect to be entertained as well as informed.

Where you'll be
Most likely, we'll visit notable locations such as Pirate's Alley, St Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square, Muriel's, the Old Ursuline Convent, the LaLarie Mansion, Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, and Madame John’s Legacy. Even the Andrew Jackson Hotel where we meet is haunted AF. Additionally, there will be many moments I might just stop and share a random fact -- That's called a lagniappe (lan-yap) in New Orleans. . .A little something extra.

You're in New Orleans, and I highly recommend making some poor life choices while you're here -- I'm not judging. But please avoid getting too 'lit' prior to this or any tour...maybe just a buzz. :-)
