Sam is the Best!

We did two incredible tours with this group and Sam was our tour guide for both. He raised the bar so high that no other tour guide on our trip could compare. From the music tour... read more

We did two incredible tours with this group and Sam was our tour guide for both. He raised the bar so high that no other tour guide on our trip could compare. From the music tour to the Garden District & Lafayette Cemetery tour his knowledge was incredible. He told the Truth! Sam was funny, witty, and smart and held... More

Chose to go with F Q Phantoms after reading the reviews. We made the right choice! We were lucky enough to have Luke as our guide. He was very informative on the history of NO on the walk to the the cemetery; was very entertaining and we learned a lot from him about the cemetery and the customs and traditions... More

Ghost stories well told, at the locations of the hauntings. Our guide, Luke, was smart, funny, and not theatrical or hokey. We crossed paths with other ghost tours, and I can't say the same for their guides. Plan to do a history tour next time and request Luke.

Visiting one of the famous New Orleans cemeteries was high up on our "to do" list while visiting NOLA, and we were very pleased with choosing French Quarter Phantoms! Our guide was Justin Woods, and he was highly enthusiastic and very informed about the area and its history. Before taking our group into the labyrinth of the deceased, he walked... More

We took a walking tour of the Garden District with French Quarter Phantoms on Sunday, February 5th.. D'artagnan was our tour guide and she was so sweet and informative. We learned a lot, enjoyed the scenery and loved the experience. Taking a tour is the way to go. The guide pointed out architecture, told stories and highlighted things that we... More

I came down to New Orleans for a business meeting, and, during an afternoon off, we all went on a tour with Robin. I can't recommend her enough - she was very well-educated on the subjects. And pretty hilarious. I didn't know what to expect from a cemetery tour, but it was a great experience. Very educational and entertaining. If... More

We went to the St. Louis #1 cemetery with our tour guide Lena. She was absolutely fabulous! She had an incredible amount of knowledge about the history and stories of New Orleans. Very informative of the reasons for the above ground burial and types of monuments. She really made the tour very interesting and the two hours flew by.

I did not actually take the "phantom" tour with this group. Robert led a group from my hotel on a walking tour of the French Quarter. He was great at telling the "hidden stories" of the alleys and buildings, and about the people who used to live there. He really made the past come alive! The tour was about 1... More

This was my first tour with French Quarter Phantoms, and I was very pleased. Justin, the tour guide, did a great job. The tour was both funny and informative. I hope to take other tours with this company and guide in the future.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
