Too many of the stories were centered around buildings that were not in the French Quarter. There was some nice history cited but tour was short on actual locations of murders.

What You'll Get

Walking tours explore intriguing surroundings at a leisurely pace, much like footage of the moon landing played in slow motion. Leave the world you know with today’s Groupon for a true-crime walking tour from French Quarter Phantoms. Tours run Thursday–Sunday and begin at Flanagan’s Pub on St. Philip Street. Each person who takes the tour will also receive one voucher for a two-for-one Hurricane drink deal at Flanagan’s Pub. Choose between the following options:

  • For $16, you get two tickets for a true-crime tour (up to a $40 value)
  • For $31, you get four tickets for a true-crime tour (up to an $80 value)

French Quarter Phantoms escorts tour-takers through the scandalous, crime-riddled past of New Orleans, exploring the dark and oftentimes cryptically humorous substratum of the city’s rich history. Covering just under one mile, each 1.5-hour journey trudges back to the 1800s and early 20th century, when merciless slayings by the mafia, savage betrayals, and crooked baseball-card trading rings reigned over the Bayou burghs. As guests tread cautiously from one blood-curdling crime scene to the next, knowledgeable guides dish out true and extensively researched facts about each featured location. Along the route, groups will investigate sites connected to legendary historical figures, including Police Chief Hennessy, Storyville madam Kate Townsend, and 1919 serial killer The Jazz Axeman, who would infamously slay listeners with out-of-tune saxophone renditions of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Before the tour, walkers begin at Flanagan’s Pub and bask in a perfectly legal transaction by cashing in a two-for-one Hurricane drink voucher.

About French Quarter Phantoms

Given New Orleans' great wealth of stories, it's no surprise that the city itself would certify its master storytellers. This certification, held by every one of French Quarter Phantoms' guides, is put to good use as they lead small groups of travelers through the city’s dark alleys on historically accurate ghost, cemetery, and history tours. The guides' expertly spun, chilling tales earned French Quarter Phantoms the accolade of second-best haunted tour in America from HauntedAmericaTours.com, as well as a certificate of authenticity from Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang.
