Walking Tour

Lots of information. Would like to hear more about Preservation Hall and Frenchman Street. The guy has lots of info, but needs to be able to gauge when he's losing his audience and move on.
Great Tour

Keith is a wealth of knowledge on history and music. Relaxed pace and a refreshment/restroom break. Would highly recommend to anyone with any interest in the history of NOLA music.

Enjoyed this walk through the French Quarter and Frenchmen’s Street. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Great fun listing to the music he had with him as week soaked up the feel of the French Quarter. Abvious the Guide loved the subject of Jazz!

This was the worse tour I’ve ever been on. We stood in the rain for about 30 minutes while the guide rambled on about nothing. Then as we are walking nobody could follow what he was talking about. If you are in NOLA DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR IT WAS HORRIBLE.
I did not know a lot about NOLA's...

I did not know a lot about NOLA's blues music and history until I took Keith's AMAZING tour. He will show you the French Quarter while telling you all about New Orleans blues and he'll even play music for you along the way. I loved this tour. I took this the first day I visited NOLA and Keith made me feel so welcome.
True immersive experience

Great tour for music and history lovers! You'll learn a lot and be entertained as well. Pace was perfect with a short coffee break half way through the tour. Keith is an amazing guide and master storyteller!
