Great way to see and hear New Orleans

“We took the Preservation Hall/Walking Music Tour with ‘Dave”, a life-long resident of NOLA. Dave gave not only a historical perspective to the tour, but a personal one as well. “Walking” the group through the roots of NO jazz to the present. Tying in names we were all familiar with and some that should have been. The tour covers Preservation Hall, Armstrong Park, J & S recording studio (now a laundrymat) the Cemetary and an extra stop at the Visitors Center for a personal account of the damage Katrina did to the city. It took Dave 3 years to return “home” and Thank God he did. The tour would have suffered without him. The tour takes from 2pm to 5 ish. We went an hour long due to a stop at a gallery/restaurant owned by a tribal chief named Chaka Zulu, who took about 45 minutes out of his busy day to explain culture, costumes, and African influence on the city. He’s a MUST SEE should you take the tour in the future. Be prepared to fall in love with NO’s people, food, and unique charm.”
