“We had a blast on the French Quarter History/Voodoo Tour with Lee, our tour guide! Lots of information and he was hilarious!”

What a great place to explore so much of one part of New Orleans. I booked three tours with French Quarter Phantoms: Tremé Tour with Adelia, Ghosts and Vampires with Andrea, and the French Quarter & Voodoo History with Lee. All three guides were ultra friendly, very knowledgeable, and really fun and engaging throughout the tour. Each of these tours is well crafted and very easy to do walking-wise, for those wondering. Even in 40-ish degree weather (and rain) I managed to go through 2 out of 3 of these tours, so it's definitely doable. These tours are really fun, fact filled, and an excellent way to get to know the French Quarter much more intimately so I recommend starting your NOLA trip with these tours. They're so good you can definitely do more than one in a day. I did the Tremé and Ghosts & Vampire tours in the same day. All in all, very worthwhile!
