If you only do one tour while you are in New Orleans then make sure it is this one. Robin, our guide, was incredible, just so full of facts and information which she gave us in such a warm manner that you could not help but listen to her every word. We booked this tour in the UK and the... More

Superb, informatic tour of an area, just outside the French Quarter, which is often ignored. Our tour guide Robin spoke passionately about the area, it's people, culture and history. When you are in the area, check out the Backstreet Cultural Museum as well!

Paul Nevski took us into the streets of Trémé, from the Vodoo Temple to the I10. He enlightened us on the history on this part of New Orleans, the way Katrina changed the life of the people who lived there. A very interesting visit to discover a little bit of this large city.

When I decided to come to New Orleans I knew I wanted to learn more about the history of the city, but I also wanted to avoid anything that glorified the antebellum South. This tour ended up being just the right choice for me. Robin, the tour guide, did a great job of helping me understand the social, political and... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Robin and given a tour around the Tremé. We love the fact that she is a New Orleans and was very, very knowledgable of New Orleans history. She enlightened us on the events that happened dating back to the 1700s till today. Her added personal touch on how her family is/was... More

I found Tessy our guide to be insightful and the tour pulled a lot of the threads together of our time in New Orleans. We have watched and truly appreciated the 'treme' the series but we did not expect the tour to focus on this and appropriately it did not. Treme the show is a vehicle for bringing to life... More

The tour covers a lot of history about not only Treme but all of New Orleans. Some of the things that New Orleans did different than the rest of the country from inception through the early 1900s are things I was unfamiliar with. Very few mentions of the HBO show. I would have liked to have seen more of the... More

I'm a huge Treme fan, my friend has never seen it and we both enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Hope,was really enthusiastic and answered any questions we had. It was a bit slow at the start and took a while to get into it but overall we enjoyed it. The highlight for me was seeing DJ Davis's house. You could... More
