Tour guides regale riders with the legends of one of America’s most storied cities in a warts-and-all historical survey. Passengers hear of the lasting ramifications of the Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson, which led to the creation of the segregated Rampart/Perdido neighborhood—the birthplace of Louis Armstrong, and of jazz itself. In the Garden District, vast mansions line pristine boulevards, including the childhood home of Eli and Peyton Manning. The tour descends into St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, where elaborate marble crypts squat sternly like miniature cathedrals. The tour then moves on to Holt Cemetery, the final resting place of Charles “Buddy” Bolden, the world’s very first jazzman.

    “Awesome tour! John was so knowledgable about New Orleans; its history, culture, and scenery. Appreciated his candor and insight into the tough topic of Katrina while we toured the diastrously affected areas of town, plus all the fun tid bits like where to find a local voodoo practitioner, great jazz music, and other hole-in-the-wall establishments worth returning to later. Definitely come back!!”

  • “Loved having a New Orleans native lead the tour.”
