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.

Customer Reviews

Billy gave us a great over view of the city. He answered all of our questions knowledgeably. He clearly love New Orleans and wants every who visits to love his city, too. I particularly appreciated his gentle nudging toward purchasing from non-chains whenever possible (supports an existing personal philosophy that I try to sell my son who was also on the tour). Billy also did a great job of personalizing Hurricane Katrina and explaining all areas of the city that were affected. I would definitely recommend Southern Style Tours!
