Tons of history, local legend, and funny stories, our tour guide Tessi was awesome. We learned so much and had a great time. I'd been to the St Louis Cemetary before - on my own with a self-guided map, but this was so much better and worth the cost of the tour. We would do it again ... or maybe... More

I searched for tours online and saw some good reviews for this company and decided to go for it since I got a groupon. We had a humid day, with thunderstorms pending but it worked out great as the rain held off and the cloud made for awesome photos. I like that you start the tour at the tip of... More

We took the Ghosts and Vampires Tour with Thomas. I really enjoyed the tour because we learned about historical and not so current events. There are mysterious connections and of course a paranormal occurrences associated with events or areas. Most importantly it is not scary, just interesting facts with a paranormal or folklore twist.

My friends and I had Tessie for our tour guide. She was incredibly knowledgable about everything French Quarter related. Every stop we made was incredibly worth it. We were so excited to learn about buildings we had been walking past for days yet we had no idea of their gruesome past. She kept our attention the whole tour and made... More

After some not so fabulous experiences with tours we found this one on our last day. Our tour guides name was Sam and it was a great time. As a history buff I was looking for some interesting historical facts and he delivered. The tour was informative and entertaining, not boring at all!! The cemetery is beautifully eerie and definitely... More

Very disappointing! there was nothing even remotely frightening about this tour. You walk up and down the street with various stops and the guide relates a story about past ghost sightings in that building. For example one man in the 1800's lost his house in a card game he shot himself and now the restaurant on that site reports furniture... More

First off our tour guides name was Luke. He was a very quirky character,making everything really exciting and awesome. Having been to New Orleans before, this was not our first ghost tour. That being said, this was definitely the best one so far! The tour starts off at Flanagans Pub, a cool little hole in the wall. The lady that... More

Last night I took 4 teenage girls on the tour as a birthday gift. Elizabeth Z was our tour guide, and the girls and I were completely impressed by her humor and delivery. The tour felt more like you found a cool friend who knew all about the city to lead you around rather than a canned tour. We passed... More

We took two tours during our trip to New Orleans. We went on the Treme and the Cemetery tours. Both had groupons available. I liked how they provided fans for the Cemetery tour. They really came in handy! Too bad I forgot to put on sunblock. That was a very very big mistake. There is very little shade in the... More

Booked a tour with Phantoms last minute and was able to snag a discounted rate by booking online (about $4 a ticket). The tour picks up at good location and the emails on how to get to the bar and what to expect were very informative. Overall the tour was OK, the guide was a very good storyteller and very... More
