Not much of a music history tour
, Dec 2021
My husband and I booked this tour a few years ago, and it was great! So we rebooked it in Dec 2021 with my parents. Unfortunately for us, this time was not very good. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, but it was too much info for us. After 2 hours, we still weren’t at Frenchman St, and hadn’t heard any music. We ended up leaving the group, and went to Palm Court (based off our tour guides suggestion). Palm Court was AMAZING!!! Overall, I will never book again, and I definitely wouldn’t suggest this for anyone who wants to see live music. But, our tour guide was so knowledgeable, we got a combo tour (history, ghost, and a little music). If you aren’t looking for just music, you might like it. We wanted a music history tour, and therefore would not suggest.

Extraordinary experience!
, Nov 2021
This tour is truly a remarkable experience! Harris Parson was our guide through an extraordinary cultural history of New Orleans jazz. Harris, a native of New Orleans and musician is able to answer any questions about New Orleans jazz whether you are like my husband and me with very limited knowledge or a jazz/music aficionado. The music we experienced of Marla Dixon and the Shotgun Jazz Band was fabulous. You will evolve with this experience and want more! In fact, Harris followed up by sending me the information I requested so I can continue my jazz journey. As Harris told us, “Remember we only meet you once and then you are part of our family”. You will feel like this. Don’t miss this experience-we highly recommend this tour with Harris!
NOLA history, listening...

NOLA history, listening to music, seeing new parts of the city. Getting personal information from the host.
Amazing History of Jazz
, Oct 2021
Great time during our tour and learning the history behind New Orleans. We had an amazing time which led us to Frenchmen Street and couldn't get enough of it. Our tour guy was very knowledgeable and such a pleasure. We traveled in May 2021 and we couldn't ask for better weather. We did end up going back to Frenchmen Street after our tour as well.
Nice tour.
, Aug 2021
The tour was very informative. Our tour guide Harris Parson who is also a drummer took us on a historical trail in jazz. Love it! Thank you.
Must See
, Jul 2021
Harris was an exceptional guide. His ability to share his knowledge of Jazz and the history and culture of New Orleans was entertaining and thought provoking.
Emphasize that this is a walking tour!!
, Jun 2021
Harris was so full of information! We learned so much about the culture of New Orleans and the history of jazz! One note however. Viator needs to emphasize this as a walking tour. A family joined us with two elderly grandparents. One was in a wheelchair and the other walked with difficulty with a cane. They took turns in the wheelchair. Harris was so accommodating to them but the situation definitely hampered the experience for the rest of us.
Fabulous tour
, Jun 2021
Fabulous tour. Harris really knew his Jazz and New Orleans history. We meet the owner of Tennessee Williams home and have us a tour of the inside patio/garden area. Harris made sure we were able to watch a Jazz band play.
Jazz Tour

Our guide, Harris Parsons, was the best. He found us an awesome place to listen to jazz on Frenchman Street after a very fun and informative tour. Even followed up the next day with information we asked for.
Not worth the money
, Jun 2021
Guide kept losing his focus. To call this a “jazz music tour” is very misleading. We expected to actually hear music - live. We got a few poor quality snippets from his hand held speaker. Mostly couldn’t find the recordings on his phone. Ended up in back room in bar playing “blues”. A lot of history about the folks that birthed the “sound” that was very interesting but too much rambling talk and no music.
