This is a must do New Orleans tour! Stella was our guide and she was so knowledgeable and educated on the real history of New Orleans and the cemetery and she was hilarious in an off the cuff kind of way! We had a few unruly members of the group, drunkards, whom she handled so professionally so as to not... More

We loved loved this tour! We did the Cemetery tour with tour guide Lena. It was such a good and thorough tour, and learned a lot more about New Orleans then I had known before. The only draw back is the other tour companies are vying for the same space and gets a little crowded, but all in all, it's... More

I went on the Ghost and Vampire Tour on May 10 and the St. Louis Cemetery #1 Tour on May 11. Hope was the tour guide for the Ghost and Vampire Tour. She did an excellent job and told some fascinating stories about murders, ghosts and vampires in New Orleans. The walk was relatively easy since the French Quarter is... More

She was incredibly kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable about the history of various homes in the Garden District as well as Lafayette.

My party and I booked two tours through French Quarter Phantoms. Justin guided us through the St. Louis Cemetery tour with professional ease, offering up a plethora of facts and information, delivered with a smile and great sense of humor. Stella was our wealth of knowledge for our Tour Treme. Her colorful storytelling about her very own neighborhood both informed... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood 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.
