With a sudden improvement in the weather forecast and most walking tours sold out or not running due to the holidays, we decided to try out a "specialist" walking tour despite fewer reviews on TripAdvisor. With 2 musician teens, and 2 music-appreciating parents, Jeremy didn't...More

Thanks for the great review! Always happy to meet young musicians and music lovers.
My wife and I had a great time on this tour. Jeremy, a pro musician, was very pleasant and demonstrated excellent knowledge about the rich musical history in NOLA. His portable music device which played samples of the discussed music was a nice bonus.

I had been wanting to do a New Orleans music tour and decided to do this one in part because it was the only company I found online which was doing a tour the Monday I was in town. I decided to do the Satchmo...More
Did a Satchmo Tour with John Doheny. Really enjoyed the tour. John is so easy going, cool and knows his game and this comes over. He loves jazz and the people of Nola. Found the tour informative and very interesting. Also loved the walk down...More
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.

They did a great job describing our tours. For Music Gumbo the route 1 - 1.5 miles.
Satchmo Jazz tour is shorter because its within Louis Armstrong National Jazz Park.
Night on the Town - 7 or 8 blocks walking. The nightclubs may be standing room only.
Both day tours you'll see Congo Square. Music Gumbo goes to Preservation Hall, site of French Opera house. Burgundy Street Blues and Basin Street blues were written about real places.
On Satchmo Jazz tour you'll see life-size bronze Mardi Gras Indian Chief 'Tootie' Montana, Buddy Bolden and appropriately larger-than-life bronze of Louis Armstrong.
