True Crime Tour Testimonials

“We went on the True Crime Tour. It was exciting - our wonderful tour guide, Thomas, brought the scandalous true stories of New Orleans to life! He was amazing at telling stories in such a way that pulled you in to the stories and made you feel like you were there. I would suggest EVERYONE take this tour while you're visiting New Orleans.”

We took the True Crime tour with Thomas yesterday afternoon. There was only my husband and I but we learned quite a bit about the mafia influence and the tale of the axe man. Not to mention the black hand and the Italian/Irish history. Thomas was wonderful and we enjoyed hearing his tales immensely.

“My friends and I took the True Crime tour this weekend and it was fabulous. We're all New Orleans locals and heard stories we had never heard before. Our guide, Thomas, was super-informative, even going so far as to recommend reading material on the subjects. Besides the intriguing stories, the walking tour gives you a good feel for the French Quarter. I feel I completely got my money's worth. So, if you want to get a more in-depth look at the city (from pirates, to the mafia to the Ax-Man of New Orleans), I highly recommend this tour. Any history buff will love it.”

“I went on the TRUE CRIME tour with Thomas as my guide. What a wonderful experience! Thomas has the most charming manner, very gentile, so when he gets into the gruesome details of the AXMAN serial killer the effect is quite delightful. The walk is is approximately an hour and and half with a break about half way through. I would highly reccomend this tour history buffs and to anyone who enjoys a good time!”

“My friends and I did the True Crime Tour with Thomas as our guide. Thomas was very entertaining, knowledgeable and engaging. As a resident of New Orleans and a history buff, I heard stories that I had never heard before, and I definitely feel that I got my money's worth. Thomas even suggested research and reading material. ??The tour is great for locals and tourists alike. We had two-for-one hurricanes before the tour began and, during the tour, we learned about piracy, prostitution, the mafia, and serial killings in the city of New Orleans. The tour lasted for about two hours, including a bathroom/drink break at a local bar, and covered a good section of the French Quarter. If you want to get to know the city, especially its less-than-glamorous side, I suggest you do this tour. And don't be afraid to ask questions. The guides are more than willing to help, even if it's just to suggest a nice place to eat.”
Raegan B. New Orleans, LA
“Truely a crime if you do not go on this tour! If you love the mafia, mysterious murders, wrong doing, and The Ax man, this is the tour for you! Tour Guide Thomas was extremely informative and knew his stuff. He was able to answer every question and even reccomended books to further my knowledge. Over all an epic tour.”
