“A wonderful way to explore Madrid's hidden corners, its history, food and drink. We were lucky not only to be guided by Cecilia on the first of her revamped Madrid tours, but to share the experience with Gloria, Inez, Sara and Jaime, who were learning about leading the tour in future. Cecilia's knowledge, enthusiasm and friendliness (and likewise her colleagues') made for a very special start to our holiday. Thank you. We will certainly join Urban Adventure tours when we re-visit Madrid or stay in other cities.”

“Udaipur is such a beautiful city, and this was the perfect way to make sure we got to experience it as close to fully as possible in our short stay. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgable and openly shared his own life and experiences which was such a wonderful gift. Even upon the conclusion of our tour he assisted us in arranging our afternoon on the lake, which was beyond his call but so much appreciated. We had the opportunity to see the wonderful colour and vibrancy of Udaipur life, and have been left with wonderful stories and gorgeous photos to prove it. Thankyou very much.”
ITINERARY

Our music tour of New Orleans begins just outside the French Quarter at the historic and beautiful Louis Armstrong Park in the Tremé neighborhood. Within the park, we will talk about the historical origins of jazz and discuss one of the jazz greats, Armstrong himself.

From here, we will begin to make our way to the popular Marigny neighborhood, named after the nobleman and good-time guy of the same name. Updated for modern thirsts, Marigny is a hip nightlife area that appeals to New Orleanians and visitors alike. Your guide will lead the way, making sure to point out a few popular local musics and nightlife haunts along the way.

Soon we will arrive at the famous Frenchmen Street, the largest concentration of live music venues in the city. Your guide will take you inside one of his/her favorites. Being with a local, you’ll have access to the best options, depending on the day of the week, time of day, and band schedules. And to top it off, you will receive a beer on us at one of the stops and you’re very welcome to purchase additional beverages as and when you want them.

In New Orleans, there’s always the opportunity for an element of surprise. We’ll be on the lookout for impromptu street performances, which always make the night special. And if the timing and mood are right, we’ll get behind the scenes with one of the bands in between sets.

If (well, let’s be honest, when!), at the end of the tour you're still craving more, your guide will point out other great locations in the area for dinner, drinks, and of course, more great music!

(If you’d prefer to travel as part of a regular group experience, please book our New Orleans Group Jazz Tour.)

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
