Sam was an awesome guide. He asked if anyone in the group had other plans for after the tour, no one did, so he was able to take his time answering each and every question we had. We got an extra long tour because we all were so into it. So much history. So much heart. I'd definitely do this... More

We went on a self-directed tour of Tremé starting at Louis Armstrong Park and covering ten blocks north of the French Quarter by six blocks across. Plenty of signs of regeneration plus evidence of the destruction wrought by Katrina even ten years on. Memorable on many ways.

Nice little tour of the Treme' area. Our tour guide was quite personable and knowledgeable of the history of the neighborhood. We are fans of the HBO series so it was interesting to learn more about the birthplace of some of our American music forms.

We had a power pass for the day and selected Tour Treme' for our first activity. What a great way to start the day! It meets at Voodoo Lounge where the bartender was super friendly and happy to serve us our first drink of the day (at 9:45 am). Blaise was a fun and friendly guide. We were a small,... More

Well informed, interesting and personable guide in the shape of Sam - he certainly knew his stuff! Tour lasted over the two hours as he just kept telling us more and more - you don't walk very far, and stop for a coffee half way round (great cafe by the way) but it is enough (particularly if you have seen...

The 'Tremé neighbourhood part of the city is beautiful – name from Claude Tremé, a model hat maker and real estate developer who migrated from Saugivny in Burgundy, France, and settled in New Orleans in 1783. There are hundreds of examples of 18th and early 19th century buildings - various celebrations like second-line parades and jazz funerals – also several... More

Bought the living social certificate, very easy to use. The tour does meet in a somewhat sketchy looking bar, although the bartender was very nice. The tour was informative and perfect. It had a leisurely pace so it was fine for my in-laws who are 70. I would recommend thsi tour to anyone looking to see a different side of... More

The tour provided insight and introduction to a part of NOLA most of us came to know through the HBO series, Treme'. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, informative and well-studied with her script. With that said, she lacked passion and it seemed like it was a job. It was a good walk through Treme (around the construction), Armstrong Park, and... More

Like many who's seen the TV series, "Treme," we wanted to know more about this fascinating neighborhood just above the French Quarter. We were fortunate to get a tour led by Tessie. She was very knowledgeable and offered lots of history while pointing out places in the community. The fictionalized "Treme" is a great story as is the real place!

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
