We're Pandora and Lynx and we started Spectral City to bring a higher quality experience to our guests, with small groups, full costumes, and fun extras! Other tour companies take out up to 28 guests and that's just too many people. When we started Spectral City in 2017, we knew we wanted to do boutique tours focusing on high quality experiences and smaller groups. Our group sizes never exceed 12 people so you know you'll get that personal connection.
We can't wait to show you our city!!

"I love giving tours because I get to show strangers the magic of the city that I grew up in. It's amazing that I get to enjoy New Orleans history through the eyes of new people all the time! It's fun and rewarding to entertain and educate people at the same time"

Lynx moved to New Orleans 7 years ago and has loved every day he's spent in this beautiful city. Originally from Michigan, he was ready to leave the blizzards behind and hasn't looked back!
"The best thing about giving tours is when a guest come up at the end and tells me that their eyes have been opened to a whole new layer of New Orleans history. It's so much fun to share the history of this incredible city. It's also so much fun to put on a costume and have a great time with a new group of people every day!"
