Walking aroud Treme was like visiting an old friend who I had not seen in a few years. While she looks much better than last time, there are still scars from her experiences with Betsy and Katrina. Our guide did an excellent job-sharing the history of the community and the people who lived through the devastation as well as their... More

It's so nice to go on a tour and feel like you're being immersed in the tour, not just someone who looked up on Wikipedia to get their information. Our tour guide Robin Rocque was not only a local, but lived, breathed and truly represented any and all things New Orleans. She spoke with such passion about her city that... More

Balise our tour guide was very passionate about the Treme’ History which made the tour enjoyable. She was more than a tour guide she was someone who lived and breathed the city and took great pride in telling others not only her story but the story of New Orleans. The walk is at an easy pace and includes historical and... More

This was a great tour given by Blais(z?)e. She told us how to spell it and now I am forgetting! Loved her presentation and honesty throughout the tour. I love history and truly love New Orleans. I only wish more would take tours like this instead of coming to the city and only stepping foot on Bourbon and drinking hurricanes.... More

My family and I visited this place while on holiday in NOLA. This place is historically preserved. We met some of the locals and they gave us a thorough introduction and history of this beautiful place. The homes are gorgeous and the neighborhood people were kind. I want to go back there and perhaps stay in a bed and breakfast... More

Robin was a fantastic and knowledgable guide. She provided an in-depth tour of Treme that will forever be memorable. Moreover she is friendly and pleasant and can answer all questions. The neighborhood of Treme is rich with history, architecture, music and jazz. I learned so much in this very pleasant manner--will recommend again and again.

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
