Overview
Highlights
    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.

    THIS... was everything and our Tour Guide, Dartanya Croff was knowledgeable, passionate and humorous. The down pour of rain seemed to reflect the cries of the ancestors. The tour was heavy in content yet informative and thought provoking. Great walking tour.

    The best tour I took and I took some pretty good ones. The history of Treme is amazing and our tour guide from French Quarter Phantoms was knowledgeable and passionate. I can't say enough about her. You really must take this tour when in NOLA.
