A note from New Orleans Music Tour
The City of New Orleans has closed the cemetery for repairs but we still do the cemetery tour from the gates
About
Although New Orleans is heavily associated with Jazz, this tour will show how every form of American popular music is informed by New Orleans. As the outgrageous New Orleans R&B legend Ernie K-Doe said: “I'm not sure, but I'm almost positive, all music came from New Orleans.”

New Orleans Music tour a highlight of our New Orleans visit
Jun 2021
Although our experience started out a little rocky due to miscommunication between Trip Advisor and Historic New Orleans Tours, we had an excellent experience. The tour representative, Robert, was very accommodating and rescheduled the tour for the next day, insuring we had a very memorable experience. Our tour guide, David, was so knowledgeable and entertaining and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you, Robert and David for one of the highlights to our visit to New Orleans.

Best Tour Guide Ever
May 2021
David Higgins is one of the best tour guides I've ever had. He knew the history backward and forwards and had a real understanding of the music and its relationship to this unique city. He brought music along to play with a Bose speaker around his neck, and he played keyboards to demonstrate the evolution of music. I'd recommend this tour to anyone!
