The basics

The Pharmacy Museum is small and can easily be seen in less than an hour. The first floor is home to a soda fountain counter and displays of apothecary bottles, show globes, voodoo potions, and surgical devices from the 19th century and beyond. Climb up to the second floor to see the physician’s office, sick room, and special exhibits.

Many New Orleans attraction passes include museum admission, so it's a quick and easy stop to fit in while strolling around the French Quarter.

Real history
Michael was awesome. He balanced real history with gray story telling. My only request would be he add a QR code at the end so we can tip him more!

NOLA Drunken History Tour from New Orleans
The Drunken walking tour was great! Raffle was awesome and down to earth. He told us about the History of New Orleans and about who he is. The bars that we stopped at were nice . Raffle made sure that they had clean bathrooms and the atmosphere was not as busy as the ones on Boubon Street. If you reserve this tour, I highly recommend Raffle.

Haunted Ghost & Paranormal Tour in New Orleans
Rafle was an Amazing guide. He went above and beyond to give us a true New Orleans experience in haunted history. He filled our tour with great stories, unknown facts and photo ops. One member of our group, a young girl got sick, had to leave with her mother. The older brother stayed to finish the tour, Rafle walked the young man back to his hotel. That was service above and beyond!!

New Orleans #1 Haunted Ghost, Voodoo, & Vampire Tour
Great tour . Trevor was a very good narrator of haunting / vampire and voodoo stories . Good for our age group 20 - 60 year olds . Easy walking and paced well as there were many stops for the stories . Only negative was the half way stop . We chose to buy a drink at laffite bar and we were charged $24 for a Bacardi coke and Tito’s club , outrageous ! Which has nothing to do with the tour company . But maybe a new halfway point for future reference .
