I can honestly say that Marie's Cajun Food Tour is one of the most fun and informative tours that I have ever been on. Part of the fun of this tour is having the opportunity to visit many different authentic restaurants and markets and sample their specialities, such as boudin, kolaches, courtbouillon, gumbo, and the most delicious king cake I've...

I live in the Acadiana area, but like most people, I don't visit local attractions. I was invited to do this tour with a group of ladies and had a great time sampling wonderful food. The tour guide, Marie, is also the owner and is very sweet and passionate about the area and making sure her guests have a wonderful... More

My husband, 14 year old daughter and I loved Marie's Cajun Food Tour. Marie is so knowledgeable and fun and it was great to be taken around Lafayette to all the best food spots by a local. We really got a taste (pun intended) of Cajun culture and learned a tremendous amount. It was also nice to meet other people... More

Great tour, well organized and the food was outstanding and included all the "must try" of the local area. If you like to eat and want to dig in the authentic Southern cuisine and share the experience with people from all across the world...well this tour is for you. "Allons Manger".

This is a must do in Lafayette. Don't hesitate and book this tour ASAP. We had a wonderfull time with Marie and the food is amazing. You will stop at places you would never stop if it wasn't with her. She will also tell you about the history of Lafayette and do that extra mile that is usually hard to... More

What a great way to spend a Saturday morning! We were picked up at our hotel by Marie in her decorative tour bus! Small group added to the tour....everyone interacted with each other very well! There were 6 stops on the tour, ranging from donut shop to grocery store to a cultural center. Over half of the people on the... More

My wife and I visited Lafayette knowing that food would be a focal point of our trip, but we weren't sure how to maximize our experience given that we were only in town for a short two days. We stumbled on to this great food tour and Marie's knowledge and passion for Cajun Country far exceeded our expectations! As a... More

This is definately a must in Lafayette. I would even recommend a special overnight trip just to do this tour. Marie is full of a lot of great information about all the food that is tried throughout the tour and of the surrounding areas.
