Know More about this tour

You will learn about the historic sites and people incorporated into the American Horror Story (Coven) TV show. You will see where they lived and where they socialized, in addition to visiting the locations where significant events happened, both in the show and in real life!

Your guide will provide fascinating facts about how American Horror Story cleverly integrated local legends about witches, voodoo and specific events, such as the burning of the LaLaurie mansion, into the storyline.  The guide will explain which characters in the show were actual historical figures. 

The first stop after this gruesome introduction will be the site where  Madame LaLauries body was exhumed by Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange) and her sinister henchmen.

Then its off to the location where Fiona and the young witches, dressed in black, perform the powerful and chilling witches walk. 

From there, you will head over to the magnificent historic house featured on the show as a museum where many interior scenes, both past and present, were filmed.

Leaving this location, youll head to the St Louis Cemetery #1, where you will visit three very significant tombs.  Firstly, you will see the reputed tomb of voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau.  Next, youll visit movie actor, Nick Cages pyramid tomb and learn why he chose New Orleans St Louis Cemetery #1 for his final resting place. The last stop in the cemetery is the tomb of Madame LaLaurie, the infamous sadistic slave torturer who was run out of the city by enraged local citizens.

Leaving the cemetery, the next destination is Congo Square, where youll learn about its significance in music and the voodoo rituals famously performed there, both in real life and in American Horror Story.  

You will then visit the site of Marie Laveaus former home.  In those mysterious walls, you will learn more about Laveaus life and how those facts were integrated into American Horror Story

Now you will head to the location where two of New Orleans most popular Voodoo shops are located.  Voodoo is a real religion and you will learn about its history, and how it came from Africa and Haiti to New Orleans.  Your guide will fill you in on the specific scenes in American Horror Story that dealt with voodoo, hoodoo, and the origin of voodoo dolls in New Orleans.

Your next stop is the townhouse where the exterior scenes for American Horror Story were filmed, which is also the location for the torture chamber scenes. The tour ends at the LaLaurie Mansion, where you will be told its dreadful history and terrible legacy.

The tour ends here, and you will be able to take pictures and as much video as you like before heading back to visit the museum and/or other historic buildings.

  • My sister and I did the tour this past Mardi Gras weekend on Monday and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was extremely cold out but that didn't stop our group of 15. Ms.Bee was extremely knowledgeable about AHS and the history of New Orleans . I would highly recommend this tour. Thanks again Ms. Bee!

  • Good tour, very informative. Tour guide was pleasant

  • Tour was amazing!

  • We truly enjoyed this tour focusing on the history of New Orleans while weaving it through the filming of American Horror story based on New Orleans. Our tour guide Bea was knowledgeable and kept us engaged throughout the tour. This tour combines a walk in the French Quarter which was also on our list of things to do while visiting. I recommend this tour for any fans of the AHS.

  • Get walk through NOLA and get way to get into the cemeteries. Enjoyed learning about some of the off the beaten path parts of NOLA's history.

  • I highly recommend this tour to any American Horror Story fans! This is an excellent way to see the sites and learn about the true stories of the characters and the history behind them and New Orleans! The tour guide I do forger her name unfortunately was very patient with us with answering our questions and allowing us to take all the photos. She carries around an iPad to show us directly the scenes we are seeing in real life. Absolutely fantastic!

  • We were lucky enough to be in a small tour group of 6. Bea was extremely knowledgeable, not only about the AHS portion but of the history of many places in New Orleans. She was informative and entertaining. We actually went over the original 2 1/2 hours scheduled which was a nice surprise. Would definitely recommend this tour.

  • This tour was simply way too long. The topic was good and the guide was great, but it was 1.5 hours of info stretched to 3 hours which ruined the whole experience.

  • Bea was a wonderful guide. Not only did she show us the American Horror Story tour if locations, She has a wealth of knowledge on New Orleans and it's history.

  • What can I say Bea the tour guide is amazing. She knew everything about AHS The Coven and had stills from the show which really helped to jog your memory of the story line. Bea also provided other information about the areas visited which was great and really interesting. If you love AHS you will absolutely love this tour. We did.
