French Quarter Phantoms escorts tour takers through the ornate, eerily captivating passageways of St. Louis Cemetery #1, which holds a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Covering approximately a mile, each two-hour journey ventures as far back as 1789, when the cemetery was built, and explores the resting places of more than 100,000 bodies. As guests tread cautiously from one spooky setting to the next, knowledgeable guides dole tales based on true and extensively researched facts. Along the route, groups cross paths with more than 700 tombs, including the grave of voodoo queen Marie Laveau and the musicians’ tomb, where the invisible hands of player pianos rest in peace.
Though French Quarter Phantoms sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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.
