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!

Keith was an outstanding docent on this trip and he knows everyone on the street of New Orleans and he has a strong voice and easily heard. We thought he was perfect.

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.

Definitely a highlight of my visit to the Big Easy last March. The tour guide knew his stuff, had great stories to tell, and gave me ideas of where to go next time for the best music. I have recommended this tour to friends heading to New Orleans at least twice in the past few months.
