Product description


This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Louis Armstrong Park, 901 N Rampart St, New Orleans, LA 70116-3086

Our music tour of New Orleans begins just outside the French Quarter at the historic and beautiful Louis Armstrong Park in the Tremé neighborhood. Within the park, we will talk about the historical origins of jazz and discuss one of the jazz greats, Armstrong himself.

Duration: 35 minutes

Stop At: Congo Square, 701 N Rampart St Entrance at the Corner of N. Rampart and Saint Peter Streets, New Orleans, LA 70116-3085

We’ll explore the area originally known as Congo Square – one of the first locations in the city where enslaved people and free people of color were allowed to gather and socialize. You’ll hear about jazz’s origins, resulting from a rich mix of cultures in a single city, which combined West African and Caribbean sounds with European musical influences – giving us this uniquely American artform.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: French Quarter, New Orleans, LA, USA

From here, we will head into the Vieux Carre, or the French Quarter, and you’ll hear about the origins and culture of jazz while making your way through the oldest neighborhood in NOLA, all while seeing some notable historic sites. Your guide will have chosen a special route for you that evening- to ensure the best music is heard.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

Along one possible route, we’ll share the history of Bourbon Street and the residential and commercial places where blues and jazz collaborators came to make incredible music. We may pass by Preservation Hall, a venue that brought people of all backgrounds together, even in times of segregation. We may even catch a busker performing at the historic French Market!

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Frenchmen Street, New Orleans, LA 70116

Or your guide may chose to head to the famous Frenchmen Street, the largest concentration of live music venues in the city. Whatever path is taken, you’ll find yourself at a great Jazz/Music Spot, and your guide will take you inside to listen and enjoy the local scene.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: French Quarter, New Orleans, LA

Either way, by being with a local, you’ll learn all about the neighborhood, how to make the most of your time here, and the music culture and how it operates in the Clubs and venues. And to top it off, you will receive a drink on us at one of the stops and you’re very welcome to purchase additional beverages as and when you want them.

Duration: 45 minutes

Having seen some other reviews about this tour I was prepared to be disappointed but it was fine. We were a group of four, a good size,and Harris is an engaging guide. We covered jazz, history and architecture among other things. Harris suggested good spots to explore later, as well as taking us into a couple of venues to hear music and indeed to have a drink as promised. It's worth recognising that New Orleans is not as jazz focused as it might first appear and you are as likely to hear blues and rock as anything else in the clubs and bars, but all the same this was an interesting and entertaining evening and thanks to Harris for guiding us through it.

This was a 2.5 hr tour. It started really well with Harris. In depth knowledge of the history of jazz and New Orleans. We walked and talked through the French quarter and ended up at Frenchman St. So far everything was good. By now we had spent 2 of our 2.5 hr tour time. But no drink no jazz club entry. It became apparent that nothing had been organised. He went into a club ahead of us , apparently they were about to finish up ? So we couldn’t enter. The group continued to wander past closed clubs until we decided to leave and get some food with less than 30 minutes left of the tour time. I suggest renaming the tour and reducing the price as no drink given, no club entry arranged. The historical part of the tour however was very good.

The tour guide while enthusiastic was full of misinformation about the history of jazz. Should have spent more time on Frenchmen Street.
