About This New Orleans Tour
"The blood is the life," claimed Count Dracula. This famous vampire has supernatural powers, can shapeshift in seconds into a bat or wolf, and is able to transform others into a vampire with a single bite. Only garlic protects his victims. Scary stuff. But he is, after all, merely a fictional character in Bram Stoker's 19th-century Gothic horror novel, Dracula. The real stories about vampires are lurking in the mysterious French Quarter.
You can sense something a little strange in the streets here and feel an odd aura about its antebellum homes and historic buildings. And as your guide leads you down the Quarter's shadowy lanes and spills its unsettling secrets, you begin to understand why this is America's "Most Haunted City." This is a place of clandestine vampire activities, sightings, and legends. And your guide takes you in the heart of it all.
You'll discover where the spirits of New Orleans' vampires rested, where they roamed, and how they instilled havoc and fear throughout the city. You'll hear how fearful residents tried to subdue the souls of suspected vampires after they were executed and the measures they took to keep their homes and families safe from vampires and spirits.
And it's not over. You'll learn about the vampire culture that continues to thrive in New Orleans to this day. Really. You likely never thought of tucking a few cloves of garlic in your pocket for any tour. But for this one, you just might.
The spirited grande dame of Gothic fiction
Perhaps growing up in New Orleans influenced Anne Rice's taste for the haunted. The city's dark and vivid atmosphere is the setting for her famed Vampire Chronicles, a series of novels about Lestat de Lioncourt, a French nobleman turned vampire. Rice returned to New Orleans as an adult, living in a Victorian Gothic house that's rumored to have been haunted since the day it was built in the 1800s. Now that's a source of novel inspiration.
Please make your way to the front of the St. Louis Cathedral, at the gates of Jackson Square.
As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind.
