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.

A fantastic experience! Keith is certainly knowledgeable and his enthusiasm comes through in his commentary and story telling. And with the music playing along the way it brings both the sights and sounds together for an amazing time. Loved every minute of it!

Don't spend time wondering - just book this tour and have a great time.

Keith really knows his stuff!! Great knowledge of area and history-just made me want to know more! The walk is easy and fun with lots of live music along the way, but if we hit a quiet spot, Keith has portable music with him! So much fun!

It was a very informative and fun tour even though we were freezing. The weather had changed and it was cold. It was well worth the time. Jeremy was a great tour guide and we learned a lot of the history of New Orleans and saw some great sights. Thanks Jeremy.
