Choose one out of five tours on offer by French Quarter Phantoms and explore New Orleans' fairytale Garden District neighborhood.

Take a leisurely stroll through the stunning "Garden District" of New Orleans and see the stomping ground of authors, poets, movie stars, artists, and sports legends such as Anne Rice, John Goodman and Archie Manning.

Enjoy the towering Southern Live Oak trees, magnificent Crepe Myrtles, and the stunning Magnolias that some have said makes walking through the neighborhood comparable to walking through a fairy-tale.
