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

Luke was very knowledgeable and did not sugar coat anything - I really appreciated his honesty. This is a great tour for not only fans of the treme tv show but for those that are interested in history.

Tessy Ables did a wonderful tour which explained why New Orleans is so different. They have been living diversity and tolerance for a number of years. Who ever heard of free blacks and then learn that they also kept slaves themselves. We learned something you don't learn in history books about the history of the U.S. The good, bad as... More

My husband and I both thought this was one of the best things we did on a recent trip to NOLA. We are typically "do-it-yourself" tourists with guidebooks, etc., so taking a guided tour was a departure from our usual itinerary. Hope was fabulous: funny, knowledgeable, patient, and a great storyteller. We will do another tour with this company the... More

I highly recommend this tour! It was very informative and interesting. Hope was our guide, and she did a fantastic job! She was very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had. She was personable and made the tour very enjoyable. We had a Groupon for this tour, but I would pay full price for it (it's only $18/person... More

Our tour guide, Luke, was excellent! We took a large group of 10 people on this tour and very much enjoyed ourselves. Luke was full of I'm information (not just a canned speech) and really I formed us about the culture and knowledge of this neighborhood and it's past. I almost felt like I had walked back I'm time during... More
