Music, music, music… the beat goes on everywhere in New Orleans, from the buskers on the street corners to the statues in the park to the top-notch bands in the city’s best bars. The city’s known as the Birthplace of Jazz, and the musical scene is very much alive and well in New Orleans!

Join your favorite local for this New Orleans jazz tour to hear all about the past and present of this iconic musical city, from the park known as the Ground Zero of Jazz through to the contemporary clubs. In a city packed with places to listen to music, what could be better than having a local host by your side to help you steer clear of the tourist traps and seek out the authentic, hidden gems?

See where it all began – at the Congo Square area of what’s now Louis Armstrong Park, where musical styles mingled as slaves, and free people of color gathered on their days off. Seek out further influences as you learn about Creole culture at the Home of the Voodoo Queen.

The tour was fantastic. An absolute essential if you come to New Orleans to learn about its rich music history. The tour guide we had (Hollie) was very experienced both in knowledge of the history but also was skilled in her art of singing. This
