Shrouded in mystery and secrecy – and often misrepresented by popular culture and Hollywood depictions – Vodou has long held reign in Haiti's legends, folklore, and history. The spirituality has been hidden among the slaves of the 1700s, popularized and commercialized in the nineteenth century, and still functions as a religion in the modern day neighborhood. But how do you separate the facts from so much fiction, rumors, and superstitions?

Join Tap Tap Tours on the Little Haiti Vodou Tour as we seek to illuminate one of Little Haiti's most unique subcultures. From its roots in West Africa to the modern day places of worship inside Little Haiti, we will explore the history, culture, and beliefs of both historic and current practitioners. Along the way, our guide will explain the truth behind the more popular superstitions and the meaning within some of the stranger rituals. The tour ends with a stop inside one of the Botanica stores and a chance to pick up some Little Haiti “gris-gris” to take home!
