Richard was an awesome tour guide. It's well-known that the French Quarter is a HUGE cluster, especially around Bourbon Street. Fortunately, Richard took us around the hidden and quiet gems of this chaotic tourist attraction. He told us a lot of the history of the French Quarter and Louisiana, many things that you wouldn’t have learned in any old boring... More

This excursion was surprising in a good way. Richard, the director of operations, escorted the group to places where he takes his own friends, where the locals go. We started with Serio's, the restaurant that invented muffalettas, still family owned after three generations. We then went to The Old Coffee Pot, dating from 1894, for out-of-this-world jambalaya and gumbo. Next... More

This was a blast! Now, whenever my husband and I tour, we will be looking for similar tours. It's 3 - 31/2 hours with lots of walking, so wear comfy shoes and stretchy shorts. We tried a po' boy, gumbo, Jambolia (I know that's misspelled), Beneits, Chickory Coffee, Prailines, Muffata and a charbroiled oyster (this was an extra $2). Also,... More

This was a great no-nonsense, local tour of everyday restaurants that served good local food. Our tour was led by Richard Crawford who combined his food knowledge with the history of the town which made for a very pleasant afternoon. My wife and I returned to three of the venues for meals and other purchases. He also pointed out other... More

Excellent quick food tour. Our guide, Richard was very knowledgeable and helpful with everything even outside of the tour. We learned a lot about the local culture and foods of New Orleans. Would recommend it to anyone!

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

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
