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

Tessie, our tour leader, took us on about a 2-hour walking tour in the Tremé area. She was quite approachable, seemed knowledgeable, and elicited a good bit of interaction, which I always view as a plus in this type of tour. We started at the Laundromat that used to be a recording studio. As I seem to recall from the... More
