The tour did not celebrate Treme, nor New Orleans as a whole. Instead, we were told, and shown, why the neighborhood was once great, and now isn't -- whether due to Louis Armstrong Park being built, or gentrification, or Airbnb. Though I learned some new things, the guide did not seem to give us much to appreciate about the neighborhood. She also expressed a lot of disdain for, verbatim, every non-African influence on the city, which, though a valuable perspective, became slightly distracting by the 10th time. I'll also admit it was disappointing not to be toured by a local.

There were two historians and an elementary school principal in our group so we were really impressed with the historical accuracy and the way the history was told. This was particularly true for the parts of the history that are more difficult to tell, especially more contemporary issues.

Malika did a wonderful job sharing all the knowledge she had on the neighbourhood, while adding anecdotes from her personal connections/findings. It was very informative and thought provoking. Will recommend to others!
