- Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau
- Slavery in New Orleans
- Spells, Voodoo dolls, and Potions
- Voodoo in Hollywood
Space is extremely limited at just 8 guests per tour. Your tour includes admission into the Historic New Orleans Voodoo Museum and a guided tour of the museum’s exhibits. You’ll also see more than a dozen real voodoo shrines and altars at several locations throughout the French Quarter!
At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately). This walking tour is mostly outdoors and will be held rain or shine, so please wear comfortable shoes and bring proper gear for the weather.
Where Do We Meet?
We’ll meet at Mister Gregory’s Cafe at 806 N Rampart Street, New Orleans, LA 70116.
- Will this be scary?
Not at all. This fascinating tour focuses on the history and present-day reality of this very misunderstood religion. We like to think it is at times funny, but it is always enlightening, and educational!
- How much walking will there be?
This tour covers approximately 1 mile, with periods of standing for up to 15 minutes; guests will be walking or standing throughout the entire 3-hr tour.
- Is this appropriate for children?
Yes! All of the information presented should be appropriate for children. That said, the tour is 3 hours long and quite information-dense, so young children may not enjoy the tour as much as older kids (you know your child’s attention span better than we do!).
- How many people will there be on the tour?
This tour will max out at 8–10 guests. We pride ourselves on small group sizes so you’ll never be a part of one of those massive tour groups!
- What if it’s raining?
Our tours run rain or shine; please bring an umbrella or poncho in order to stay dry during the tour. If the weather is severe enough that it poses a danger, we will call you to explain our decision and discuss alternatives (this is why it’s very important to list a good cell phone number when booking online!). If we cancel a tour because of severe weather, all guests will be given a full refund.
