The guide was fantastic. She was very informative. I would have like to stop into the small jazz museum that was pointed out and including a conversation with one of the Chief Mardi Gras Indians would make this tour a 5 Star.

Overall I was happy with 5he 3xperience.

"I'd give this one 5..."

November 7, 2017 - 

I'd give this one 5 1/2! Ducky was one of the most excellent tour guides we have EVER had, and we do tour when we travel. A native, knowledgeable, friendly gent - full of information above and beyond, and articulate. Didn't talk down to us, listened and responded, what more can I say - he was great, this tour was terrific, very informative.

LOVED the Treme tour with Justin this past Sat.
He was phenomenal! Well -informed, professional, humorous, and very helpful. He sold me (and my son ) on your company. Wish we had time for every tour you offered. Steve and Wyatt L.

Really fun and informative tour. Stella was a great guide and gave us just the right combo of history, personal anecdotes from her actual time there and fun info related to the music and culture.


"I really enjoyed the tour...."

March 18, 2017 - 

I really enjoyed the tour. It is a great way to spend a few hours and get some great context / history for Treme' and New Orleans in general. Justin was very knowledgeable and personable. We asked him a lot of questions and he was on point -- he knows what he is talking about. And he knows everyone in the neighborhood. If you want a relatively quick tour and are interested in New Orleans history, this is a must.


"Loved this Tour and our..."

March 9, 2017 - 

Loved this Tour and our guide was fabulous with so much knowledge to share which she did with such passion. Would recommend this tour to everyone as the architecture in this area is just so beautiful and if you love the HBO Treme series you even get to see DJ Davis' house which is such a treat! Go, you won't be disappointed.

"Relaxed and informative tour on..."

February 25, 2016 - 

Relaxed and informative tour on a lovely day in Treme.

The tour guide Justin filled in the gaps in my knowledge and I could picture how the neighbor hood was in the past. I came away knowing a lot about Treme and its connection to jazz and rock and roll, as well as African-American history and the past and present New Orleans.

I also enjoyed morning tea at the cafe and meeting a gentleman who had been involved in the making of my favourite HBO show, Treme.

Learned much more than I expected and loved the Indian Museum at the end, a must see!

November 15, 2015 - 

This tour was easily the highlight of our recent trip. Our guide was one of the best I have ever had: very well informed, entertaining and generous with her own personal experience. The Treme was fascinating and we were lucky enough to catch a Second Line at the end. What more could one ask for?


"I would highly recommend this..."

I would highly recommend this tour.The guide was very informative and answered all our questions.
