Just two of us with Blaise (sp?) on a Saturday morning. She was well versed in the history and current day life in this interesting neighborhood. We suggest complementing the tour with a visit to the Backstreet Cultural Museum and a walk through the statues in Louis Armstrong Park and in Congo Square.

Our tour guide "Miss Blaise" was a very knowledgable and articulate young lady. The two-hour walking tour offers a perspective on new Orleans history that most visitors never imagined. I recommend asking for Blaise if you book... More

I took this tour in September 2015 with 3 other people. Sam was our guide. The tour was only suppose to be about 1.5 hours but Sam made it personal and answered all of our questions until we were satified. I truly did not want the tour to end. We learned about the Creole people, their values and culture. I... More

I did this tour in October 2013, and it was one of the best tours we did during our 6day stay in New Orleans. Not only do you get a good explanation of the place where Jazz was born, the guide also shared a lot of (personal/non personal) experiences post Hurricane Katrina.... Very informative, personal and not rehearsed at all!

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 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.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
