Adjacent to the French Quarter district in New Orleans is Treme' (pronounced Tre-May), the oldest African-American neighborhood in the USA. The New Orleans Treme' Walking Tour takes in the major landmarks and locales of this cultural watershed, stopping at Storyville and Congo Square, while discussing jazz greats such as Troy 'Trombone Shorty' Andrews and Alphonse Picou.

The tour was amazing! We learned about the architecture, everyday lives of the people, politics, and the important and historic role that Trend served during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. Ducky was our tour guide and he was great, providing insightful stories and a little humor along the way.
The guide was fantastic. She was very informative. I would have like to stop into the small jazz museum that was pointed out and including a conversation with one of the Chief Mardi Gras Indians would make this tour a 5 Star.
Overall I was happy with 5he 3xperience.
I'd give this one 5 1/2! Ducky was one of the most excellent tour guides we have EVER had, and we do tour when we travel. A native, knowledgeable, friendly gent - full of information above and beyond, and articulate. Didn't talk down to us, listened and responded, what more can I say - he was great, this tour was terrific, very informative.
LOVED the Treme tour with Justin this past Sat.
He was phenomenal! Well -informed, professional, humorous, and very helpful. He sold me (and my son ) on your company. Wish we had time for every tour you offered. Steve and Wyatt L.
I really enjoyed the tour. It is a great way to spend a few hours and get some great context / history for Treme' and New Orleans in general. Justin was very knowledgeable and personable. We asked him a lot of questions and he was on point -- he knows what he is talking about. And he knows everyone in the neighborhood. If you want a relatively quick tour and are interested in New Orleans history, this is a must.
Loved this Tour and our guide was fabulous with so much knowledge to share which she did with such passion. Would recommend this tour to everyone as the architecture in this area is just so beautiful and if you love the HBO Treme series you even get to see DJ Davis' house which is such a treat! Go, you won't be disappointed.
