History in Treme - This was an informative, encouraging and impactful history and visuals of Treme. Our tour guide Robin was par excellence and gave us as much history of New Orleans that could be crammed into one 2 hour session! I received a new hunger & thirst to learn even more!!!!!!!

Treme tour/African American focus - Robin was an exemplary tour guide! We received so much history in just 2 hours that it's still sitting with me days later. I learned so much more about Treme than I thought I knew! I am looking forward to going back and using this company to do a jazz tour. I am recommending to others who are traveling to the area in the future

Extraordinary Experience - We adored this tour!!! We had the lovely Robin, who, if she doesn’t yet, should be awarded a masters degree in Tremé history. Robin has studied its history, focusing on truth, and her storytelling style makes being with her extremely accessible and a pleasure. We had another tour the day before (another company) and it left me feeling empty and disconnected. This one could have gone on and on. We’ll be looking for Robin again when we come back. You won’t be disappointed!

Amazing Amazing Experience - I would give my experience a six stars if could! From the moment we set off, our knowledgeable guide took us on a captivating journey through the garden district. The tour was expertly paced, allowing us to soak in historical landmarks, hidden gems, and local stories that we’d never have discovered on our own. Highly recommend this tour to anyone eager to explore and learn more about New Orleans!
