I'm not into ghosts, so I'm a hard sell but I did appreciate our guides knowledge of the stories and his passion for New Orleans. Plus, it was fun to tour the city at night....a good way to add a little culture to your drinking!
I enjoyed learning about the alcohol and bars we were at, however, I wish there had been a little bit more ghost stories. Overall, very entertaining!
We had a wonderful time! Thank you for all the great info! Can't wait to go back again!!
John was our tour guide and he did an excellent job of making the tour interesting. We had a very large group and he managed to keep everyone’s attention throughout the entire tour his knowledge about New Orleans was extremely impressive. I would not hesitate to go on a tour again if John were the tour guide! We thoroughly enjoyed it.
John was a great tour guide, informative, engaging and funny! He was kind and polite to our giant Sunday group while showing us some very cool places around Nola. Thanks John, I would highly recommend this tour!
Informative, Friendly, and loads of fun
John definitely knew his history and facts, and it was a great way to learn and hear ghost stories while drinking in New Orleans! Highly enjoyed!
He was very entertaining. Definitely memorized his lines well, and engaged with the audience more than once. A good sport when dealing with all the drunk guys and I appreciate it
Skip was a great tour guide, very interesting and entertaining. It was a fun evening.
He did an amazing job. Loved the tour. Very funny too!
Very knowledgeable and enjoyable tour!
John was so personable and enthusiastic. He balanced comedy with his historical knowledge and kept everyone excited and interested. Everywhere he took us was on our bucket list of bars to visit while we were in New Orleans. The stories, drinks, and fun facts really put us in a great mood and afterwards John even suggested a place to eat at. Coops- John: it was the best comfort food ever!!! Thanks again sir. Really fun and glad we got you as our guide!!!
Our tour with John was great! John was fun, gave us lots of information and was very knowledgeable when we asked questions! I would definitely recommend taking this tour!
John was very informative and fun. Just the type of tour my sister, nieces and I were looking for!
Skip and the tour were great! He is very entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans. We were well cared for! The only thing that could have improved was letting us know ahead of time about the cash only bars. I would definitely recommend this experience to others!! Thanks for everything!
Was what I expected. John was very informative.
John was very knowledgeable and a great presenter. I learnt quite a lot about the history of New Orleans and had a great time seeing the town.
Very informative and lots of fun, great group.
John was great, but the size of the tour group was way too large (28). It was challenging to navigate around other tour groups at times and often hard to hear as a result. In addition, as this was a pub crawl, the large group size made the stop at each bar too long...a majority of the stop we were just standing and waiting for the rest of the group to grab a drink before John could continue with the “ghost story” part of the tour. I have been on ghost tours in several other cities and this was, by far, the largest tour group I have seen. The size of the goup detracted from what would have otherwise been a decent ghost tour.
Super knowledgeable, super friendly and super fun, John has a way of distilling 300 hundred years of fascinating New Orleans history into these extremely entertaining sound bites. Being a history buff and an annual visitor to NOLA, I know that his facts are correct (albeit creatively presented) and the breadth and depth of his encyclopedic mind are constantly whirring to find the best experience for those lucky enough to be on his tour. I think you have merely to point at any building in the Quarter and he can tell you who lived there, died there, and who died there and refused to leave. So you could do no better having John Sestak as your guide. His company should give him a raise immediately. Enjoy, Jim from Omaha
This tour was so much fun and our guide was great! We learned some history, listened to some ghost stories, all while drinking some amazing cocktails at local bars I would have never found had it not been for this tour! I definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting NOLA.
I went on another haunted pub crawl about 6 months ago that just blew me away. I came home and told everyone I knew about the stories I heard. I still share those stories. I was excited to book another tour for this trip with 3 of my best friends. (the tours were different companies) unfortunately this tour with GCT was not at all thrilling. There were no goosebumps or entertaining stories. Instead it seemed like more of a history tour derived around alcohol and bars with just a few seconds thrown in about actual ghosts. We kept getting told that BOLA is a haunted city but come on tell us some actual ghost stories! Ultimately I ended up telling my friends the other ghost stories I heard af 4 very different bars on the precious haunted pub crawl. This tour was still interesting and the tour guide was very friendly but it was not what we were looking for out of a late night tour.
John was great!! Very knowledgeable and funny! And he took time to answer questions and kept a normal pace. Thanks for a fun night!!!
John Sestak is awesome! He is very knowledgeable about the history & legends of the area. I highly recommend him as the tour guide. And the tour alone is also a great way to be introduced to some excellent pubs that you might not otherwise venture into.
His speed talking stories were hard to keep up with especially after the first drink. I only remember two in the beginning:(
A great tour with a great tour guide!
John was a great guide, so full of information and great stories. He took us to some great bars, some of which we may not have tried or even found on our own. John was very knowledgeable, friendly, entertaining and happy to help with any queries or questions. I highly recommend him as a guide!
Had tons of fun, John was great!
The night we did the ghost tour was a weird one for NOLA- Icy road conditions had caused many of the bars to shut down making it difficult for our guide to take us to his usual spots with no fault of his own. He went above and beyond to make sure we got the most out of our tour and despite the cold, we really had a GREAT time! We learned a lot and got to go in multiple bars that we probably wouldnt of known about had it not been for the tour (first time NOLA visitor). The other people on the tour were great as well and we wound up hanging out with them for the rest of our trip! I would love to do this tour again on our next trip to NOLA. Thank you John for a great Ghost Tour.
What a fantastic tour! We had Bill as our tour guide and he was very informational and fun. He let everyone really enjoy the atmosphere and history that came along with every story. Will recommend to friends!
Even though it was cold our guide kept us as comfortable as possible and the tour fascinating.
Very friendly and informative.
Super knowledgeable, and kept the tour interesting the entire time. Great recommended tour. Absynthe bar was the best.
What a fantastic tour! I loved our tour guide John's enthusiasm, and I learned so much while having a great time. I would definitely recommend this tour, and especially John. He made us all feel like we were in on the secret.
