NOLA Music Tour

Come join us on a music tour of the French Quarter! Learn about the origin of our uniquely American art form ~ from the birthplace of Jazz at Congo Square and Storyville to the roots of Rock and Roll along Rampart Street. From brass bands and Mardi Gras Indians in Treme to the local musicians who made it happen: Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Uncle Lionel, and many more, we take you on a walk from the Mississippi River through the Quarter and on into Treme – learning our history and culture along the way. See the spots, learn about the people and places, and hear samples of their music- all while exploring the French Quarter on this New Orleans music and walking tour.


DEPARTURE/RETURN LOCATION We do not have a brick and mortar building or shop. Our tours begin at different historic sites in the French Quarter. Upon booking, you will receive an email with the meeting location as well as a link to the location on Google maps. In addition, our guides will contact you 30 minutes before the tour to confirm.


Our Music Tour begins across from Jackson Square.


The Music Tour ends within blocks of the Square though the exact location varies.

WHAT TO BRING Dress Comfortably. Bring your love of music and your camera.
WHATS INCLUDED Twelve blocks from the Mississippi River through the Quarter and on into Treme – learning our history and culture along the way.
If you need to cancel your reservation, we will issue a full refund if canceled at least 24 hours before the tour’s starting time. Because we’re a tiny business, we ask that you give us as much notice as possible.

Tours do not run if there is thunder / lightning, flood watches, or heat advisories. While we don’t necessarily mind those things, children, antiques, and ghost hunting equipment don’t fare as well in such conditions. We’ll try to adjust the start time or reschedule whenever possible. If that is not possible, we will cancel and refund the reservation.

If it starts pouring while touring, we will leave it up to you whether you wish to continue the tour or stop and dry off. If you opt to stop the tour, we will refund your tickets.

Because of the nature of our tours, we do require at least 2 children attend the tour. If you are booking with one child, understand the tour is conditional. We’ll let you know 12 – 24 hours in advance if your booking is at risk of not happening. In that case, we’ll offer you options to reschedule. If that is not possible, we’ll issue a full refund.
