Ghost and Vampire Tour Testimonials
The ghost tour was really interesting and just the right level of creepy, and though I didn't see any ghosts, I did feel adequately spooked…The tours ran high to history, and this company seems to place a very high value on research, preferring to tell true stories and let the history do the talking rather than resorting to weird costumes or made up, overly sensational stories…For those of us who prefer a true story to cheap jump-scares, this tour cannot be beat. I really cannot say enough good things. The price is right, the tours are interesting, and the guides (at least ours) really seem to care about their patrons. Definitely a can't-miss!!”

“We just wanted to thank you for the great time we had on your ghost tour last night, it was the highlight of our trip. We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Mark was knowledgeable and entertaining and made us want to learn more about the haunted history in the Crescent City. We're so thankful we were lucky enough to have him as our tour guide.
Thanks for a great time. Can't wait to get home and tell all of our friends about this wonderful tour!”
Elaine O. Saint Louis, MO
“I feel I can really rely on this company to provide our guests with charm, professionalism , knowledge & FUN! I highly recommend their tours.”
~Russell Murphy, Head Concierge, The Royal Sonesta Hotel
If you are lucky enough to get madman luke... Then you are in for a treat. Luke is funny, an avid historian, a LOCAL, and a self-admitted skeptic. He will knock your (proverbial) socks off with his eerie gift for story-telling. He will convince you that your 8pm french quarter ghost tour was time well spent. Skip the dressed up fools. Luke is the real deal. - Keri K.
Our guide, Thomas Webb, was very friendly, knowledgeable and funny! We enjoyed an excellent walk through the French Quarter and learned lots of great info! We enjoyed our tour so much that we booked a tour to go see the cemetery, something we hadn't planned on doing but we had such a good time we decided to go for it! And you can't beat the price! Best in the city!

I’m kind of a nerd, and I like my stories with some historical backing–the guides here have done their research and know what they’re talking about. They are less likely to dress like Dracula or fake an accent, but you might catch one of them in combat boots or a corset. Mostly, though, you can rely on French Quarter Phantoms to offer solid history and folklore, with just the right amount of dramatic presentation and humor. - GoNOLA.com
Speaking of ghosts, you can’t say you visited New Orleans without taking a ghost walk or finding yourself in the middle of a cemetery. Obviously, the tour companies offering such excursions are numerous. I chose to tour with the French Quarter Phantoms, and I was NOT disappointed.
French Quarter Phantoms Tour is excellent! This tour will twist and turn through the narrow streets of the French Quarter, while an
expert story teller will seriously scare you to death. And these are not “made up” stories.
This tour company checks their facts.You will be utterly fascinated with these tales of history, architecture, piracy, scandal,
slavery, murder, and anything in between. What can be better than hearing these stories, than hearing them in the places where
they actually happened? This tour is worth the trip to New Orleans by itself! - Southern Weddings Magazine
“I took two tours with French Quarter Phantoms while staying in New Orleans, and they were both fantastic! I went on the ghost tour with Hope as my guide. She was full of interesting stories and she performed them all in such an engaging fashion that the tour arched dramatically like a play would. It was excellent.”
Gretchen P. Manhattan, NY
“Couldn't have got bored for a minute. (Emily) really has an art for retelling tales - and with funny personal insights and quips too. I was a little skeptical at first as it was so long, but I just wanted her to keep going after it ended. Very interesting and not your average cheap thrill ghost tour. In depth to both past and present.”
Jessep666 South London
“It was fantastic!!! Great tour, a lot of history in New Orleans, recommended for anyone who has some free time, or likes ghost stories. Emily was our storyteller, and she did a wonderful performance, full of energy and full of knowledge. She was very outgoing and helpful after the tour, when we had questions!!!”

“I have been on many ghost tours all over the world and this was the sixth walking tour of the Quarter I've done in the past decade; I am a big fan of ghost folklore, so I'm am by nature hyper-critical of "ghost" tours. This company did a great job. The little pub we met at was fun and comfortable and looked to be a locals joint. No one was shoving a menu with $14 specialty drinks in my face (which is a plus). The guide, while being witty and spinning a decent yarn, was also affable…The stories were "hauntings" and "terrifying historical occurrences,” whit Vampire folklore as well. The price is right on. I would recommend anyone to take this entertaining tour.”

We went to New Orleans for spring break and happened to hear about the french quarter phantoms tour. We were lucky to get Hope as our tour guide. She was polite, funny, and you could really tell that she loved her job and loved history. We had such a blast that we decided to go on the ghost tour later that night. We had Trevor as our tour guide for that. He made a creepy subject hilarious at times, and we learned a lot about New Orleans. I would highly recommend these tours to anyone wanting to have a fun time learning history. - Rachel M., Emporia, Kansas
It is without costumes and other gimmicks, but the stories are enough to make you look twice at what you swore was just a change in the lighting. You learn a rich history that normally gets bypassed without realizing you are learning. It is perfect for older children, given they are alright with campfire-like ghost stories. Will totally recommend to my friends, and can't wait to go again! - S. Warren, Pearl, MS
“Your tour was the highlight of our New Orleans trip! Thank you, and we’ll be back!”
