Very informative

David was great, and was really knowledgeable about the musical history of NOLA...definitely recommend!
Waste of time money and effort

Well the whole two hour tour consisted of looking at a few bronze statues in Armstrong Park that had already seen by myself and being dragged through Treme for no apparent reason. A lot of talking and ZERO JAZZ MUSIC. No mention of the famous Jazz greats.

David was an excellent tour guide, He has an extensive knowledge of music and history of New Orleans. The enthusiasm he brings on the tour with all the nuances about history of music could be unmatched.
My terrible music tour .

This tour should not be schedule at 2 pm in the summer time . Our tour guide Cindy, was tired and sweaty before the tour even started . Instead of 2 hours tour ,she finished our tour in an hour . I was seriously embarrassed ,because I booked this tour for our whole group of 6 people and we came all the way from Poland .

Interesting and entertaining - examined the thesis that Bamboola lies at the heart of all popular music from early 1900s to the present day. We enjoyed it very much and learned a few things.
