Spirits - The Cocktail And Ghost Crawl
The advantage to having done more pub crawls than anyone else in the city, is that I have the widest range of classic bars, and the best bartenders in the city, at my disposal. These people are my friends. New Orleans is a cocktail town, with reason. This is an evening of classic concoctions, ghost stories, city history, drinking tales, and voodoo. I'll tie all of these points together into a cohesive experience of chills, laughs, and must-have drink suggestions. This is still well-researched history, but I'm here to make it fun. Let me save you from the dull recitation of New Orleans' bullet points - I put on a show. This is storytelling, and through these stories, I will help you connect with one of the most amazing cities on the planet. I will balance the tour locations based on group interest. This is an introduction to some of the important signature drinks of New Orleans. However, this is definitely unpretentious. You are not required to buy anything, drink what you wish. In between bars, we will visit some historical, and haunted locations, while I weave all the content into a well-rounded evening. This is perfect for groups with a wide range of interests...except vampire stories, I don't do vampire stories, those are fabrications. Also,it is logistically easier to let you buy your own drinks, I don't provide them. Group sizes are small, under 15, and not city law 28.

Ghost and True Crime Walking Tour
This is a tour for adults only (17+). I don't pull punches on the grim and gory details of the stories you'll hear. This tour explores the disturbing secrets and truths about New Orleans, going back to the founding of the colony. The city’s sinister energy is buried deep inside every brick, nail, piece of steel and wood that makes up what is known as the Streets of Sin. On any given night you may hear stories about Notorious Sex Workers, Mob Bosses, Love Gone Wrong, Wicked Fires, Crime Conspiracy, Human Torture and Sick Twisted Murder...the stories are always evolving. This experience will immerse you into the deep Sin of New Orleans on levels no movie, podcast or other tour could ever imagine. Leave behind all the partying and music for a bit and join us on the “Empire of Sin/Way of the Wicked Walking Tour.”​ The tour covers approximately a mile of distance over 1.5 hours, but you won't be counting steps. There will be no less than seven stops of haunted sites and former crime scenes. These stories are unlike any other tour for the simple fact that we dive deep into the specific details of some of the goriest stories New Orleans has to offer. Which is why this is an adult only experience. If you want a PG-13 experience with kids, my tour is not for you.
Queer History Tour of the French Quarter
Join a walk by the shells of old brothels, burlesque clubs, and historic gay bars on a tour that places them and the cultures within them at center of the stage. Learn the history of sex work, burlesque, queerness, and transness and the ways New Orleans played an integral part in building all of them. This tour unapologetically centers the least respectable women and queer people possible for a bottom-up history of the sex in the city-celebrating their agency, creativity, joy, and brilliance in the face of some of the worst conditions you can possibly imagine without shame or judgement. This tour will have you leave knowing that every time you hit a dance floor, tip a performer, or walk through the street proudly, you are participating in a worldwide, generations-long history of resistance. Or at least you can tell yourself that.
Frenchmen Street Live Music Pub Crawl
Get ready to PARTY!! This 3-hour private tour will take you beyond Bourbon Street to the music clubs, and cocktail bars of Frenchmen Street, the live music capital of New Orleans. Frenchmen Street has been featured in many films and shows such as HBO's Treme, The Simpsons, and the hit movie Girl's Trip. Drake also shot a large portion of his video for 'In My Feelings' on Frenchmen Street. Do this experience your 1st night!! You'll have a local Jazz musician as your party guide. We will take you to hear the best live music at Frenchmen Street's hottest clubs. You'll hear New Orleans music history, ghost stories, and tales of musical New Orleans from 1718-until now. At each venue, we will take the time to listen and dance to live bands. At our first bar, a Bartender will show you how to make a premium Louisiana cocktail, such as a "Esplanade Lemonade". You'll even get to try the famous BOOTY SHAKER SHOT while you dance and experience the Frenchmen Street scene. We'll definitely get to meet some new friends! You will have access to VIP Sections at clubs and VIP DRINK SPECIALS. If you like glitter and eclectic local art, we will visit the Frenchmen Art Market as well. We will help you be in the right place at the right time to see world class Jazz, brass bands, latin, funk, electronic, rock, blues, americana, zydeco, EDM, hip hop, and DJs. Bring your Camera and Dancing shoes

Second Line Tour & Music Experience
So you will experience a New Orleans Second Line Parade or Second Line Experience with one of the Former "Kings" of " Treme " There are dozens of different second line parades put on throughout the year, usually on Sunday afternoons, and held in the French Quarter and neighborhoods all across the city. They range in size, level of organization and traditions, but in all cases they will include a brass band, jubilant dancing in the street and members decked out in a wardrobe of brightly colored suits, sashes, hats and bonnets, parasols and banners, melding the pomp of a courtly function and the spontaneous energy of a block party, albeit one that moves a block at a time. The parades are not tied to any particular event, holiday or commemoration; rather, they are generally held for their own sake and to let the good times roll. Second lines trace their roots back to the 19th century and the fraternal societies and neighborhood organizations that collectively provided insurance and burial services to members, especially among the African American community. - BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE !!! This Tour is Top rated for Bachelorette & Bachelors parties. Private - Brunch, Engagement or Parties please reach out in the DM for private booking of Band.
