I was floored to learn how the crypts worked...never would have thought it was as described...worth the heat...taking the tour gave much more info than just visiting the cemetery on my own would have provided...the visitor center had some great pictures too.

I live in Louisiana and have been to NOLA several times. By far the highlight of my trips was the Phantom french quarter history tour. It's a very reasonable price for what you get. Highlights starting from first to last: * You get buy one get one free Hurricanes from pat o'briens. I do not like hurricanes, but theirs was... More

We did two tours. First one was the vampire/ghost tour with Emily. She was great. Loved the stories and her enthusiasm. You can tell she loves what she does and her city. The other tour was the cemetery tour with Luke. He was also great. Easy to talk to and very informative. Would recommend both.

My girlfriend and I recently spent a week in New Orleans, and the cemetery tour was one of the highlights. Our tour guide, Luke, was fantastic – it was about a 10 minute walk in a very hot humid temperatures – but he stopped every few blocks to give us a short break and regale us with a interesting story...

Really enjoyed the tour, was very interesting walk around the quarter. The guide was wonderfully knowledgeable and answered any questions with a well researched answers. Really opened my eyes to a side of New Orleans I had no idea existed!

The ghost/vampire tour with Liz is well worth the price. She is a fantastic tour guide. She was energetic and had personal experiences to share along with the ghost stories/history. She kept us at a good pace and even stopped to tell us about the second lines as we passed three on our tour.

We bought a Groupon for the Ghost and Vampire Tour. This was-by far- the worst tour of the many we did in New Orleans. Our guide Thomas was poor at time management and often confused about his facts. He spent over 20 minutes at the LaLaurie Mansion. Two other tour groups came and went as he droned on. We heard... More

Although, I hear people are still dying to get in there... New Orleans is a city with a wealth of history and a couple hours is just not enough to get much. Our guide did an excellent job giving us the highlights, however. We did the cemetery tour - St. Louis Number 1. We walked there from a coffee shop... More

I don't usually write reviews for trips I take unless it is a "can't miss" event, but I have to say that I was really disappointed with our recent Voodoo and Ghost tour. A group of girlfriends and I went to New Orleans and, being fans of dark histories, were very excited about this tour. Our tour guide, Thomas, was... More

Thank you for the review of your tour with Thomas. I am sorry you had this experience with him. It was in fact the last tour he did for our company and he is now working for a competitor. French Quarter Phantoms guides are always friendly and available to answer questions. It does not change your experience however, I do... More

The cemetery tour was phenominal. Our tour guide, Sam, was very knowledgable and very energetic. You're going to learn so much on this tour; not only about the cemetery, but about the city and the culture. This is a walking tour, but there are many stops and breaks along the way so you won't get too tired. Wear comfy shoes!... More
