Travel Q&A

Can you give me some information about the "vampire tours" in New Orleans?

They're called the Anne Rice Tours for the author of vampire books, who lives in New Orleans. The tours have been running since August 1996 and this year added Rice's homes as part of some tours. Locales include Lafayette Cemetery, Garden District homes and several places in the French Quarter.

Organizers and most tour guides are Rice relatives. Tours operate on foot or on buses, range from two to five hours and in price from $20 up. One is a progressive dinner tour to three different famous restaurants.

For details, call 888-SEE RICE or 504-899-6450.
