Janet_M, Apr 2023
Yahyah was AMAZING !! She was so knowledgeable and told her stories with such passion. The history of the ‘Treme district and the music of New Orleans was beautifully entwined in her presentation. It was entertaining, educational and at times heartbreaking. We would take a tour with her again and again. Thank you Yahyah for a wonderful experience!!❤️❤️❤️

Unfinished tour through Treme.
lucy_g, Aug 2022
Phil was our tour guide. He was magnificent. I loved the way he truly walked us through the history of Treme using music that was hung around his neck. It was quite an informative and interesting tour. Unfortunately, we could not finish the tour since someone in our party felt ill. This was quite a shame since it was so good. When we go back, this is a tour we will definitely repeat.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
We're so sorry you weren't able to complete our Treme tour with Phil. Hopefully we'll have the opportunity again next time you're here to visit.

sharon_s, Aug 2022
St Augustine church talk was most enlightening.Entire tour was historic.Tour was rain or shine we were prepared effectively.We ran late but they accomadated us and it all worked out.
Philip was great!
Jocelyn_T, May 2022
Phillip was a delightful tour guide. He provided good information and history about the Treme neighborhood. If you are interested in socio-economic history this is the tour to take.z
Excellent tour
Siri_A, May 2022
Phill was a great tour guide. I've done a handful of tours in New Orleans and this may have been my favorite. I loved learning about Treme, jazz and music history, civil rights history and more. The tour even ended near a Second line that was just about to begin, which was an amazing experience. Thank you
Highly recommend
Requita_D, May 2022

Fantastic day in Treme
Nadia_M, May 2022
Erin is a fantastic tour guide and we were so lucky to have her guide us around Treme. Her passion, criticial analysis, and deep knowledge in history and anthropology really shines. She went above and beyond and made our tour truly special. I learned so much and had such an amazing experience.
Yes yes yes would recommend
Janet_P, Apr 2022
Our guide Andrea was fantastic. She gave us a lot of great info about jazz greats and the neighborhood
tlwhouseofcare, Apr 2022
A MUST DO! I went with my 16yr old son. Andrea our guide was GREAT! She was very knowledgeable took the time to explain as well as answer questions. My son was engaged as much as me. The day prior I was across the street and said we could have done it on our own. Glad we did’nt. She took us for a bathroom break inside a shop which gave us a opportunity to try the food there. Overall it was a great experience. If you could request your guide ANDREA.
Tremé tour with Erin
Rose_C, Apr 2022
Erin our tour guide was so interesting to listen to and really informative. I was hoping for a real, truthful telling of the history of Tremé, including about the gentrification, as well as history of Jazz. That's exactly what I got. She did not sugar coat it and I really appreciated that.
We booked online 2 days...
Emmanuella_S, Jan 2022
We booked online 2 days prior but when we arrived no one was there. After calling, they said they didn’t see anyone booked so they canceled the tour. This was a birthday gift gone wrong
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Our apologies. This was human error and totally our fault. We accidentally placed your reservation under our Cemetery tour and thinking we had no one for Tour Treme on a near freezing morning, we called the guide off. When you reached out we offered any of our other tours and even searched the internet for you to see if another company offered a Treme tour but alas, were unable to find one. At that point we immediately issued a refund. I do hope the rest of your birthday was better.
Hooray Treme
Leslye_A, Nov 2021
Our experience walking through the Treme neighborhood and learning about the history of music in New Orleans was wonderful
Great Tour
Nilajah_S, Nov 2021
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging. We would take other tours from this company! I learned a great deal and had fun doing so…
This Treme tour ROCKS!!!
Letitia_P, Aug 2021
This tour was EXCELLENT! Our tour guide, Malika (hope I spelled her name correctly), was very knowledgeable about the history of Treme`. We also got to witness a second line, which was great to see how a life is celebrated!
Mattie_J, Aug 2021
Malika was very knowledgeable about the tour of Treme. I'm sure I'm spelling her name wrong please forgive me. It was a great tour she made it so interesting. She's a 10+ score of a tour guide.. Definitely will be taking tour next visit!!!🌈🌻🎆 Thanks again 😷😀
Cultural tour of Treme area
Mary_S, Apr 2021
Favorite part of malika’s tour was Congo square in Armstrong park. Also enjoyed the Treme walking tour, where we discussed the impacts of gentrification post-Katrina. The emphasis on and discussion of the musical and artistic heritage of New Orleans was much appreciated.
