Blaise provided a great tour of the neighborhood. Unlike the night tours, you'll have a smaller group (ours was 9) as you walk around Treme' It's a mix of Jazz, racial, and city history, covers a lot of ground and is well presented. There's a cafe stop in the middle and you end at the Backstreet Cultural Museum (also excellent).... More

My teenage son and I went on the Treme Tour this past Friday. It was fun, informative and just everything you want in a walking tour. Tessi clearly loves this city and did a great job transmitting her passion and knowledge. She shared insights into New Orleans past and present, warts and all. Music, architecture, culture, history, politics, schools—it's amazing... More

I've been on many walking tours but this one by far exceeds expectations. You meet that the voodoo lounge bar to get started. The bartender is really funny and very witty. GREAT mimosa's to be had here. I'd use the restrooms at your hotel before arriving though. The walking tour is very easy and she is VERY informative. She gives... More

Completed Treme Tour with Robin today - what a fabulous experience. Robin bills herself as a Master Storyteller and that is an understatement. I learned things about Black History in New Orleans that I had no idea about and I'm an avid history buff. She intersperses her history lessons with personal experiences which makes the learning even more interesting. Can't... More

Like many of the previous reviews, this was a highlight of our visit to Nawlins. Robin was a super friendly, engaging and informative guide. We were staying at a guesthouse in the Treme, but would have missed much of it,had we not taken the tour with Robin. Also learned a lot about jazz from her. Unmissable!!

We became interested in this area through the TV program. This is one of the BEST tours. it was even better because we had the guide Robin all to ourselves. December is the best time to go on this tour. ROBIN was the perfect guide! She was friendly, outgoing, and well versed in the history of the neighborhood. We learned... More

Most everyone connects New Orleans with parades and jazz music, but if you want to learn about the true origin of this music genre, you need to go with Robin on a tour of the Treme' neighborhood. We were fortunate enough to visit the Treme' area with Robin on Christmas Eve, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer Christmas... More

Very informative - great tour. Talks about the musical history of Nawlins and the different ethnic groups of the city. I'm a history buff & I loved it. My kids who aren't history fans enjoyed it. Our guide Sandy was great. We did the walking tours of the French quarter and Garden District associated with the "hop on hop off... More
