Gray Line Plantation ToursJanuary 3, 2024
4 tickets @ $94.00 each. Hear the eerie tales and dark secrets of a 300 year old European neighborhood that has been ravaged by fires, epidemics, hurricanes, floods, wars, slavery and conflict. Learn the real history of colorful characters who lived, died and have chosen to remain in the French Quarter. Follow their shadows down cobbled alleys, through streets aglow with gas lamps and feel the mythical presence that makes New Orleans the most haunted city in America. Your guide will introduce you to Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau and share the evolution of Voodoo, a religion that arrived with the first West African slaves in 1719 and is still practiced today. Voodoo dances and rituals have merged so intimately with New Orleans’ contemporary culture that it often goes unrecognized… but you’ll recognize it tonight! Come see why New Orleans is #MoreThanBourbonStreet. Tour starts daily at 7pm. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour time. This walking tour includes two interactive augmented reality experiences, with more in development. Gray Line commissioned native New Orleanian Marcus Brown, a sculptor, painter, inventor, musician and educator whose expansive work includes national and international exhibits and performances.
