The box office for French Quarter Phantoms is located in a cooky little bar known as the Voo Doo Lounge. Didn't get the bartender's name but he was a riot! When the tour began, Sam made sure that we had plenty of chances to sit and grab a sip of water. It was 91 degrees with A LOT of humidity,... More

I am not a big fan of guided tours, but for some reasons i decided to get this tour from Groupon. Well first of all our guide Angela was fantastic. She is funny, very artistic and extremely knowledgable. She gave us so much information to absorb and that i highly recommend her as a guide.

Not only was Sam an incredibly talented story teller, he's attractive and keeps the terror pleasantly light-hearted yet enthralling. I'd definitely recommend taking a tour with Sam. You won't regret it!

Aubrey is adorable, energetic and gives a great tour. Her presentation made an already beautiful cemetery that much more intriguing. We've taken other tours, that were fantastic. However, if the other guides are even half as good as Aubrey, French Quarter Phantoms is well above standard. We'll be back, certainly.

My wife and I had a great time on this tour our story teller she was very entertaining and spun some good stories with facts and maybe some fiction. To see New Orleans at night on some of the streets kinda spooky and creepy. I would recommend this tour just because you can get a pretty stiff drink at the... More

While we were in NOLA, we decided we wanted to do some sort of tour. The weather was so hot & humid that we chose to do something close and this tour came highly recommended by our concierge. With that in mind, our group of 9 went to the starting point and had a few cocktails where we were joined... More

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.
