Marie did a fantastic job of introducing us to some great restaurants and yummy food. She's entertaining and throws in some education too! My wife and I had a great time.

Marie is a former teacher who definitely knows how to make learning fun. My friends and I took the morning tour, which includes breakfast and lunch foods. Even though I have lived in Lafayette for 25 years and visited many tourist sites in the area, half of the restaurants were new to me and I learned some history that I... More

If you want some Lafayette/Cajun history, great food, and entertainment all at once, don't miss this tour. Marie has found her calling, and loves to share her story. She is a great ambassador for Lafayette, a gracious hostess and lots of fun. She has the inside scoop on the best places to experience good ole Cajun food. Do this tour!!

We knew this would be a great experience after reading reviews and it was!!! We learned so much history and the food stops were AMAZING! We had gumbo, boudin, crackilins, alligator, pizza, crab bisque and bread pudding not mention Marie pointing out all the interesting things to see and do in Lafayette. It was definitely worth every penny!!!!
