New Orleans, United States

Experience hosted by John

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.

Rated 4.98 out of 5 from 442 reviews.

My group went on this tour as part of my bachelorette weekend. We were so worried because the forecast was heavy rain. The rain did clear up a little, but we had a blast despite the weather. I am so glad we took this tour! John’s knowledge and love of the city is really what made this tour so wonderful. All six girls in my group agreed that we will be taking this exact tour again, amongst other tours, with John. I highly recommend this AirBnB experience. You experience culture, history, sightseeing, and authentic, delicious drinks that you wouldn’t find yourself if it is your first time in New Orleans. 10/10!!

John is an excellent presenter/host when it comes to New Orleans ghost stories and hauntings. And on top of that he’ll take you to a few bars that serve some of the best drinks in town. I would totally recommend this tour to my family and friends.

If you’re considering this tour, just looking for a tour, or can’t decide between the multiple different options, choose this one!! It was a really awesome blend of ghosts, history, and great cocktails. He also tailors which types of stories he tells based on interest and he even has sources to back them up! John is a really great storyteller and has a great personality in general. He makes it fun and personable. I would recommend 100 times over.

We had a great time tied John on his tour. His knowledge and passion for what he was telling us really came through.

John was a great tour guide!! He had done so much research on the city and stories he told. He was professional and animated without making the experience feel cheesey. I don't think we would have made it to the bars he took us to without his help and definitely appreciated the specific recommendations for drinks (which all correlated with the stories he told!) to get at each one. I think we found one of the best tour guides in NOLA, book this! :)
