History teachers make the best tour guides, and Lyndel is at the top of her class. Our tour was excellent. Lyndel's knowledge and life long familiarity of the town and it's food made this tour well worth the money. Our only compliant was the portion size of the jambalaya and gumbo. All other restaurants gave a nice size sample of... More

Fun and informative tour. Reagan was our tour guide and she was great... Easy going, considerate, engaging, and really knowledgeable about the foods and history of New Orleans. All the restaurants had restrooms and it was easy to walk from one stop to the other. We had muffelatta, gumbo, jambalaya, Po-boy, beignets and cafe au lait, and pralines. The gumbo... More

Our tour led by Reagan was great! The NOLA specialities sampled on the tour were Muffalata (meat, olive salad and cheese sandwich), Gumbo (thick seafood stew), Jambalaya (like Paella), a Po-Boy (roll that can be filled with different things, this one was beef brisket with heaps of horseradish), Coffee with Chicory and a Beinet (fried pastry covered in powdered sugar)...

My friend and I had a fabulous time. The venues were lovely, varied and the foods we tried were all tasty and the portions were generous. The venues were close together and within easy walking distance. Each place had rest rooms. Reagan the tour guide was very knowledgeable, engaging, friendly and able to answer pretty much every question we had.... More

I truly believe the best way to get to know a city is to get to know its food. We went on this tour early in our NOLA trip and I am so glad we did because it made the melting pot of NOLA make sense! Rich was a great guide, taking us to the best places to try all... More

Our tour guide, Richard Crawford, gave us a wonderful history and food tour. The tour started at 1 PM and we ate samples at five restaurants. It was more than enough for lunch. There were 16 of us on the tour, but Richard made sure that everyone heard what he was saying. We highly recommend this tour. We returned to... More

Our tour guide was Lyndel. She was very good. Very knowledgeable about New Orleans and New Orleans food. We are from the Gulf Coast area and are familiar with Cajun/Creole cuisine. The tour avoided the tourist traps and went to a variety of authentic venues! The seafood gumbo at the Coffee Pot was excellent. I would recommend this tour for... More
