What you'll do

Because of Covid this tour is now mostly outside, with drinks to-go!

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 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 made up.
It is logistically easier to let you buy your own drinks, I don't provide them

I have given well over a thousand tours, and I am a licensed tour guide who has walked with over 20,000 visitors. Nobody in New Orleans has given more pub crawls than I have, and I have been filmed for Travel Channel and other documentaries. I have years of rave reviews behind me - it's been an honor representing this great city. I'm passionate about storytelling, history, and helping people connect with the amazing. Consider me a future resource, a friend to ask questions and strategize your way through the city's complexities. I love meeting and knowing people from other locations, and I've stayed in touch with many of my guests throughout the years.
So, this is kind of like having a buddy in town, who is also an actor, historian, writer, musician, foodie, bartender, and travel guru.

Where you'll be

We will visit classic and neighborhood bars that have some of the best bartenders in the city. With drinks in hand, we will walk and stop at historical places between each bar, and hear some of the old ghost stories that have fascinated New Orleanians for generations. We'll talk history, a little architecture, and drinking tales. I will mold the content and venues based on group interest.

John is super knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans! You can really tell that’s he’s done additional research so he’s telling authentic stories. He does a great job with catering the information to the group’s interests. Our group wanted a mix of history, ghosts stories, and voodoo which he delivered and was able to tie it all together! We highly recommend touring with John!!!

We had a great time! We appreciated the fact that John had done so much of his own research above an beyond the stories told. He was a great (and very candid 😊) host!

John was extremely knowledgeable of the area and the history. He showed us some wonderful spots and told us some creepy stories that helped us appreciate the city even more. I highly recommend the tour AND asking as many questions as you can. He was very enthusiastic and helpful even when it came to recommending local spots. He mentioned branching out to other types of tours, and we will be taking them when we’re back in town. Thanks, John!
