  • Interesting neighborhood and its history. I would have liked to have spent more time here. I will definitely be back!

  • We had a great guide -- a fun guy who made the best of this outdoor walking tour...It's a good tour if you don't know the area at all, and want some background...You listen to recorded music as you walk and he gives some history. It was adequate.

  • Very unique tour with extensive coverage of the rich musical history of New Orleans. Justin was our guide and had a firm understanding of the subject besides presenting it in an enthusiastic manner. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the complexity and diversity of the city's unique musical heritage.
