JONATHAN WEISS TOURS

People often ask “How did you get into being a tour guide?”  A reasonable question, and one simply answered with the words “I was a very spooky child…”  It’s not that I meant to be, but I certainly was the little boy who would skip Sunday school to hang out behind the church in the old cemetery.  There were graves from the earliest days of the area’s colonisation – women from the 1830’s who were buried with their children with whom they’d died trying to give birth.  Cowboys who’d spent their lives trying to make a fortune out of the land.  Soldiers who’d fought for the losing side of a horrific war.  They were my ancestors.  And I always wanted to speak for them, and tell their stories.  That’s why I do what I do.  And the stories I tell are of real people, and real events, and they’re the things that made New Orleans what it is.

Welcome to the old city. Welcome to my home.

VAMPIRE TOUR

This tour explores in depth the legends of Vampires in the city's streets. These stories, often told word of mouth by the oldest families predate the novels written in and of the city. Indeed, they could even predate the founding of the city. No sparkling vampires here, instead stories of vampire blood-killings, mysterious sightings, strange disappearances, and the old legends of the vampires, a fear that may be one of the oldest held by mankind. For good reason? You decide...
