Very unique tour with extensive coverage of the rich musical history of New Orleans. Justin was our guide and had a firm understanding of the subject besides presenting it in an enthusiastic manner. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the complexity and diversity of the city's unique musical heritage.

Dartania is very entertaining, with knowledge of the music history of New Orleans. I liked the musical backdrop she provided to the trip with her mobile player. She has a beautiful voice.

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2016

We had a great guide -- a fun guy who made the best of this outdoor walking tour...It's a good tour if you don't know the area at all, and want some background...You listen to recorded music as you walk and he gives some history. It was adequate.
