This in-depth, 2-hour walking tour is devoted to exploring the significant locations in the historic French Quarter that were featured in the popular cult TV series, American Horror Story – Coven. Your experienced and knowledgeable tour guide will explain the historical overlaps between the characters depicted in the show, and the true stories of their real-life namesakes. You will learn about the evil murderer Madame LaLaurie and visit the spot where her body was exhumed. We also visit the site where the ‘Voodoo Queen’ Marie Laveau once lived.
In addition to learning the rich history of these real-life characters and visiting important landmarks from the show and their real lives, you will be taken through the St Louis Cemetery #1, where you can visit Marie Laveau and Madame LaLaurie’s tombs, as well as Nick Cage’s pyramid tomb.
Come with us on this spine-chilling tour and walk in the footsteps of Fiona, Marie Laveau, Madame LaLaurie and the voodoo witches, among many others.
