F.A.Q.

Welcome To French Quarter Phantoms

Hello. We are French Quarter Phantoms, and we’d like to give you a tour.

Not just a tour of our new website (pretty swanky, huh? We are proud of it), but a tour of the Crescent City. The Big Easy. The City that Care Forgot. New Orleans. It’s a place like no other, and its stories–be they strange, macabre, spooky, or even uplifting–are our passion.

We offer four main tours:

The Ghost and Vampire Tour is our most popular. You’ll experience the French Quarter as you’ve never seen it before–hear our haunted history through tales of disease, disaster, murder, and sinister spirits that go bump in the night! You’re sure to get a chill up your spine, as well as lots of laughs–it’s like a roving campfire story with a bar break (hey, it IS New Orleans). Our Ghost Tours run 6pm and 8pm nightly.

Visitors to the city also love our Cemetery Tour. Burial practices in New Orleans are unique, to say the least–this tour takes you to St Louis Cemetery #1, New Orleans’ oldest active city of the dead. Visit the tombs of voodoo queen Marie Laveau, civil rights hero Homer Plessy, and even the future resting place of actor Nicholas Cage! Cemetery Tours are every morning: 11am Mon-Sat and 10am Sun.

Tour Treme is perfect for the music fan and history buff. You might have heard of Treme on the popular HBO series, but you can truly experience the charm and importance of this neighborhood on a walking tour with us! Vital to many of New Orleans’ best-loved traditions, from jazz music and rock and roll to the Mardi Gras Indians, Treme is living, breathing history. Treme Tours run every day by reservation only: May 1st through October 31st – 10am; November 1st through April 30th – 1pm.

The True Crime Tour is truly not to be missed. Journey through New Orlean’s seedy underbelly from the 1800s-1950s, as we give you the real scoop on piracy, bordellos, the mafia, and our own 1919 serial killer, the Jazz Axeman! It’s a side of the city that is by turns unsettling, thrilling, and, often, disturbingly amusing! Tours are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only. October 1st through April 30th – 4:00 pm; May 1st through September 30th – 6:00pm.

You can visit our Box Office to book online with our special web discount: $16 per guest ($18 for Tour Treme). Want to create a custom or private tour? We can do that for you, too.
