Explore your spooky side with a spine-tingling trip back to the 18th century. You'll depart in a mule-drawn carriage toward the French Quarter, traveling past iconic landmarks like the Saint Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square and the Napoleon House. Discover NOLA's dark history through true tales of tragedy told by your tour guide, and understand how odd occurrences like human experiments, fires, floods and epidemics led to devastating death tolls. Then, learn what actually happened at the LaLaurie Murder Mansion with a stop at the infamous house of horrors. You and your guest will shiver as you feel the presence of spirits, and return for the evening with scary stories to share for years to come. ($90 value)
