Jonathan Weiss is one of the South’s leading historians and purveyors of the macabre history that makes New Orleans the most haunted city in America. With over 14+ years experience, his passion for storytelling of New Orleans’ deepest and darkest tales will leave visitors and locals alike spellbound. As an actor he trained in both America and Great Britain, and settled in New Orleans pre-Katrina, after being mesmerized by its magic at a young age.
He is an independent tour guide, leading unsuspecting guests to explore his city’s lingering dead, or the depravity of vicious vampire legend. Fully licensed, Jonathan gives regular tours Thursday through Sunday nights, departing from Pirate’s Alley Cafe, 622 Pirate’s Alley. While one of New Orleans’ newer tour companies, very few guides equal Jonathan in depth of experience, his knowledge of the old city and it’s neighbourhoods, and in addition to his regular tours, he is able to accomodate private tours by request. Jonathan has appeared and consulted on The Vampire Diaries & The Originals, CMT, MTV, ATT Uverse, SyFy, Discovery, the Travel Channel, and for several films over the past decade.
