We only had the opportunity to do one of her tours, the Cemetery Tour - loved it. It was a bit on the pricey side but fun and interesting nonetheless. We met at a bar, grabbed our to-go drinks and went on our way. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We never felt rushed. I hope to make it back again some day to do the other tours. Definitely recommend it.
It was awesome! She picked us up at Lafittes in her van (just my hubby and I and 1 other couple) and took us to 2 cemeteries, and was a wealth of knowledge. We really enjoyed it and it was nice to go to St. Lewis #2. You can't get there by walking, it's far and in a sketchy area. It had such a different feel and look compared to St. Lewis #1. She then took us to Congo square and we made our own Voodoo dolls. Sounded tacky at first, but it was so amazing and I even think my husband liked it. It was so neat to learn the history and differences between these old religions that are so complex and diverse. So happy we did this tour, it was well worth the $.
This was a great tour to learn about New Orleans. The tour guide, Matthew, was very knowledgeable. It was very interesting to learn about the history of different buildings and the spirits that still live within them. This tour led us to many places that the average tourist would not know to go to. What better way to learn about a great party city by grabbing a drink at each place you go. Being too drunk is frowned upon during the tour which is a nice touch so that way you are not interrupted while learning about NOLA
I read many positive reviews of this tour and decided to go with it, over all the others. We were very glad we did. She doesn't advertise, and I didn't see anything promoting her business when we were there. You need to make your reservation online 24 hours in advance to make sure you get a spot. Mary is a descendent of the area and is extremely knowledgeable of the history and many other things, as you will find out during the tour. It was quite remarkable how much information she had to share and knew all the dates about the horrible things that have happened over the years. Her accent was so cute and the time went by very quickly. The tour is 2 hours, but there is a restroom stop halfway through, which was great. Wear comfortable shoes because you walk and stop at landmarks for the entire 2 hour tour. Make sure you dress warmly. It was chilly at night and I was very glad I wore layers. Highly recommended!
Haunted Pub Crawl Tour ($25 per person): Matt was a GREAT tour guide!! Very knowledgeable, well-spoken and interesting. I really liked that he didn't push his beliefs in voodoo or ghosts onto us. He just talked to us about his beliefs. Despite Tropical Storm Lee, he made it all the way out to our tour even though our group was the only one that had not canceled. The tour lasted for three hours and we heard so many interesting stories!! What a great way to start off our trip in New Orleans. I highly recommend it especially at the beginning of your trip!
I've heard a lot of nice things about you, my brother loves you with all his heart! I hope that one of theses days I get the chance to meet you. Maybe one of these days I can make it to New Orleans to visit.
Mary is extremely knowledgeable about New Orleans, the history of the people, cultures and land. She seemed down to earth, approachable and has a vast knowledge of the area especially the peoples spiritual beliefs including magic, witchcraft and religion. She is a captivating speaker and I really learned a lot during the tour. It was great that she shared personal stories and experiences which I found most interesting instead of just retelling of tales and ghost stories that one could read in the plethora of books about the haunted city. Highly recommended for those truly interested in learning something while enjoying the sites.
Every time I come to New Orleans, I take one of Mary's amazing tours. She has such a unique and unassuming way about what she does that makes the experience that much better. She doesn't need pirate or vampire garb to make her point, she just knows her stuff and is absolutely generous with that information and her time. This time around I took 2 of her tours (1 of which i took before). I was visiting with a friend and wanted him to experience it too. Not only do we get to walk through 2 cemeteries at night, but we got to experience a voodoo ritual an photograph plenty of orbs.
if you want the real deal and to not have the feeling of being on a "tour", Bloody Mary is where you need to go. She is a lovely woman and has such a wealth of knowledge. Mi that with the utmost respect for the deceased and you will be left with wanting more.
Her tours are NOT to be missed. And hey, If you want to get married, she can do that too!!
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
This is a total scam. We spent over $350 on 2 different tours during Halloween. We spent months planning this trip and we were looking forward to the tours the most. What a disappointment! Our tour guide, Gina, sounded like she was reading a script and was totally fake. The Voodoo Temple was in her cob webbed house. Who takes strangers to their house?!?!? And the Pub Crawl which boasted of visiting 5-6 haunted bars was more of a history lesson on prostitution! I cannot stress enough...DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!
Our private honeymoon tour was amazing!! Had so much fun!! Can't wait for all the pictures!!!
