[Tremé tours]( HYPERLINK “http://www.frenchquarterphantoms.com/4up/tour-treme/” http://www.frenchquarterphantoms.com/4up/tour-treme/) explore the historic neighborhood of Tremé, which cradled the fledgling civil-rights movement and future jazz greats within its buildings. Groups stop in St. Augustine Church, the oldest African-American Catholic parish in the nation, and visit the Tomb of the Unknown Slave, a sculpture of chains, shackles, and crosses that honors lives lost during the era of slavery. Tours also cover the musical history of the neighborhood, showing off the sights that inspired jazz, blues, and rock ‘n’ roll, including a historically significant laundromat and the first tree to ever grow a six-string guitar.<p>
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.
