"Ghost Tour" Ghost Tours Tip by Tom_Fields
Ghost Tours, New Orleans: 22 reviews and 20 photos
You don't need to believe in ghosts or the supernatural to enjoy this tour. It's a fascinating source of local history and folklore--often the things that don't get into the history books. Here sordid tales of murder, intrigue, tragedy, and dark family secrets revealed. Here is the real Gothic side of the old French Quarter.
These tours usually include some details of local architecture, and those little oddities that somehow get left out of other tours. For example, Romeo spikes. Most buildings here have balconies, an innovation added by the Spanish. On some of their support pillars are sharp spikes. They were meant to discourage any would-be "Romeo" from climbing up to the second floor, where the girls slept.
I've NEVER experienced a haunting, or other supernatural event. But a good ghost tour is just too much fun to pass up.
