Went on two tours the St Louis #1 cemetery with Sam and the Ghost and Vampire Combo with Luke. Both guides were very knowledgeable and kept it very interesting! Definitely worth the money!

This morning we did the St. Louis Cemetery #1 tour this morning. Our guide was Philip and he did a great job. This evening we did the ghost and vampire tour. Our guide was Sam and he also did a great job. A lot of interesting information and facts on both tours. Both guides were very professional, witty, and willing... More

$16 tickets which it was worth. Walked with a group and a guide (Blaise) told stories about 6 " haunted buildings" Stories were kind of cheesy, but the history told of New Orleans was of interest. Blaise was actually the best part of the tour. Your was not as long as posted. Fine for kids if you're just looking for... More

The topic is interesting, the folk lure is there, but you need a good guide. Our guide was just "ok". Ask around for the right guide before booking.

Great tour - Sam was very knowledgable not only about the ghostly parts of the French Quarter but also in New Orleans in general. We had a great time!

We took three tours with this Company and were pleased with every one of them. We had Hope for the St Louis 1 Cemetery tour and the Ghosts/Vampire tour. She was terrific. Not only was she very knowledgeable about the city, her sweet and easy going personality made you feel like you were touring with a friend. Her enthusiasm also... More

I found a Groupon for the St. Louis #1 Cemetery tour that was two for the price of one. After reading so many positive reviews that led to multiple bookings for other visitors, I did the same. We did the cemetery tour and Ghosts and Vampires tour. Neither disappointed! We had Robert for the cemetery tour. He was both knowledgeable... More

Our tour guide Sandy was both knowledgeable and very entertaining. I was a bit nervous about taking this tour with my parents since my father is so straight-laced (I'm amazed he even went with us to New Orleans to begin with!), but her sense of humor and retelling of even the most adult-rated parts of the tour had us all...

1st off our tour guide Susan/Blaise acted perturbed she was asked to start the tour a little early. This was then followed by a tour with very "dry humor" and basically just retelling deaths in NOLA. It was barely entertaining. As practicing Roman Catholics though she crossed the line by spreading silly & inane falsehoods about the Church.....which we needed... More

Cindi R, Owner at French Quarter Phantoms, responded to this review

Thank you for the feedback. It sounds like something touched a nerve with you regarding the story at the Ursulines Convent. Susan Blaise, named after Saint Blaise, is a Catholic, raised in Ireland, transplanted to New Orleans a number of years ago. She has been guiding tours with us for the past 5 years. Our tour manager has a degree... More

We had a great time on a recent visit to Nola. As a family of four, we were looking to learn about New Orleans and have fun at the same time. Philip was our tour guide and he made our experience very educational and fun as well. We look forward to another visit and another tour.
