What an amazing tour, Our tour guide Danielle took us all over the French Quarter and gave us the history of the city, buildings, restaurants and food. My husband and I thought we were going for a tasting however the potions were generous and we were filled for the day. We tried the po'boy, grilled oysters, gumbo, jambalaya, praline, a... More

Out of all the different tours we did while in New Orleans, this was probably the best one. Richard, our guide, brought us to four different century old restaurants and a candy store. For each stop, he gives you the history of the most iconic food of new orleans and the history of the family who created it. This was... More

Libby was our tour guide and she gave us a great tour of the french quarter and brought the food experiences to life with her history and stories of her home town, New Orleans. We did this tour on our first day so we were well oriented and knew where to go for food, drink and great jazz for our... More

We took the Tastebuds tour with Richard on 4/03/15. This was a wonderful way to sample local foods and learn a little New Orleans history too. Richard was knowledgeable, entertaining and a perfect host! We sampled a Muffaletta, pralines, biegnet, Poboy and Jambalaya. Servings were just the right size, considering we had several stops to make, with the exception of... More

We took this tour to try some of New Orleans most iconic foods as our stay was way too short to spend too much time in different restaurants/ eateries, and we were not dissapointed! Our tour guide, Richard, was awesome and was able to transmit to the group both his love for New Orleans and its cuisine. He is very... More

What an amazing 2 hour tour! Libby was our tour guide and brought 10 generations of New Orleans knowledge to the table...the dinner table that is and then some. We tasted a wide variety of local cuisine from gumbo to po boys with a lot of history on the side. Libby's enthusiasm was infectious and the information she bestowed really... More

After reading many reviews, we decided to do the food tour on our first day in the city to get some familiarity with the city layout, history and food. We had Jeanine for our tour and it was wonderful. She knew her way around, gave fantastic history and background and was extremely helpful. The food was amazing and honestly some... More

Had a nice experience on the Tastebud Tour in New Orleans. There was a good amount of food, 2 nicely sized sandwiches filled me up. I've been on other food tours that were better, but this one was still enjoyable...definitely got to try some food items that I wouldn't normally try. Overall had a good experience.

We took the Tastebuds tour with Richard and he was great. He gave us lots of interesting facts about the history of New Orleans and its foods! We had muffalato, gumbo, jambalaya, roast beef po boys, pralines and beignets. He was accomodating to vegetarian and non-meat requests too since there were some people who needed that on the tour.

I was excited to go on this tasting tour to experience what NOLA has to offer but was a little disappointed with the tour. All the places we stopped at were great and the food was tasty but our tour guide Libby talked way to much and would make random pit stops through out the tour. Instead of talking about... More
