Our guide Bobby Thomas was very entertaining, knowledgeable and passionate about the stories and sharing them with us. It had the right balance of macabre and humor.

We had a great time on the walking tour! Bobby was fun and entertaining. There was a parade going on so we couldn't always stand right at the building Bobby was talking about but he shared some great stories.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I would imagine, many of the same places but different stories. Even if they are the same, you always catch things you missed the first time around.

What are the cannot miss tours while in NOLA?? (3 Replies)
We are planning a trip to Nola this Sept. There are so many tour companies. What is the best, most authentic haunted tour???? I seem to be leaning toward French Quarter Phantoms.

Do not consider that you must plan your New Orleans trip around tours. It is a very exciting city to learn and explore on your own. With some minimal reading online or in guide biooks you can learn as much as the typical guide has memorized and it is much more fun discovering the charm of New Orleans on your own.

Opinions on Specific Tours and Museums? (23 Replies)
There are a few tours and museums I'm considering for our brief NO visit next week, and I was wondering if any of the lovely TA folk had opinions on any of them! I'm thinking of taking an evening "haunted" tour. I'd prefer one that's more about history and storytelling than one that involves costumes and the hunt for "orb" pictures. Has anyone done the haunted tours through French Quarter Phantoms or Historic New Orleans Tours? How about Le Monde Creole Tours? I toured Laura plantation...More

Walking Tour Through the Tremé French Quarter Phantoms Spend $10 and go on a walking tour through the Tremé, led by French Quarter Phantoms (regularly $22). The one-mile tour hits all the highlights, including St. Augustine Church and the Tomb of the Unknown Slave, and a knowledgeable and energetic historian will showcase lesser-known factoids about the most vibrant area in an already vibrant city. Anybody done this tour ??? Opinoins ???
