New Orleans Treme' Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Treme' (pronounced Tre-May) sits adjacent to the French Quarter and is the oldest African-American neighborhood in the United States. Treme' is a vibrant area steeped in music and culture. Come explore this iconic gem and revel in New Orleans Jazz history with its roots in Congo square and Storyville, the birthplace of such Jazz greats as Alphonse Picou and Trombone shorty.

    Treme' was originally settled by Free People of Color; often referred to as Creoles, whose unique experience helped shape the civil rights movement. It is the hallmark of African-American history not to be missed. Today, Treme' is home to artists, musicians, and craftsmen and is a living, breathing, joyful piece of New Orleans history.

    Our tour guide, Evian was fantastic! We scheduled the tour of Treme for our last day in New Orleans, and I'm so glad we saved the best for last. What I love about all the tour guides from French Quarter Phantoms is that they explain their background and education from the

    We booked this tour last-minute because of how impressed we had been with the guide, Miss Malika, on our "Saints & Sinners" tour the day before. We were even more impressed with this tour, which covered topics that were more serious and complex in an equally accessible and
