Tour Details

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

What to Expect

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 was fantastic! A great story teller and a ton of fun was had on the tour! It was also super informational and realistic (unlike all the more story than factual ghost tours available) and John was a great guide! I’d recommend this tour to anyone!

    If you love wonderful storytelling and want to learn more about the historical roots of cocktail making, John is your guy. This is not the typical New Orleans, storytelling and large group tour, but rather a thoughtfully researched and crafted experience.

    Authentic Exploration in New Orleans My experience was truly unique and authentic. His in-depth knowledge of local history and his skill in guiding us through different parts of the city added a special touch to my trip. Instead of mixing cocktails, he took us to various bars, sharing fascinating stories and local recommendations. His insights were a valuable bonus for fully enjoying the vibrant scene of New Orleans. I highly recommend this experience to those seeking to discover the city in a genuine and entertaining way. A true adventure!
