  • 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. 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 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.
