When people think of music in New Orleans, jazz is often the first thing that comes to mind but other genres played a role in the rich musical history of the city as well. Rock and roll, blues, gospel, and even opera have also made their lasting impressions in the Crescent City and live shows in each genre are commonly seen today.
Visitors with a passion for music will be delighted to find that a Musical History Tour will explore different types of music. Visit all of the important venues and areas, such as the famous Frenchman Street (a major part of the jazz scene) or Congo Square (where American music is said to have found its roots).

Guided Musical-Walking Tours are led by experienced, licensed tour guides, who share great stories enhanced with music clips along the way.
