I have been to New Orleans probably 25 times prior to taking this tour and I still enjoyed. In the past, I had only done the typical fair; bar hop in the French Quarter, etc. I did this as I had done one in the past it was a great way to learn about the little places you may have... More

What a great experience. Excellent idea for the first day you are in town as you will pick up tips and information for other places to go and food to eat while you are on the tour. Our tour guide, Lyndel, was fantastic. She has a great knowledge of the city and its history as well as where the great... More

We visited New Orleans last week and wanted to start our time there off with a tour of the French Quarter and an idea of where we should go to eat while we were there. Tastebuds was the perfect tour for that! We got acquainted with the French Quarter, and had some great food. And not little bites of food... More

This is a great way to sample the food of New Orleans. You are guided to some of the most famous restaurants, several of which are featured on Food Network. Our guide, Lyndel was a native of New Orleans and very knowledgeable about not only the cuisine but the history of the city. Definitely my favorite tour in N.O!

I did this tour as a single with a group of six last Thursday and it was excellent. Our guide Dave Thomas was very welcoming and did an amazing job spinning history, food, local culture and humour around his narrative. We stopped to sample at places I might not ordinarily have chosen to stop at and the bits were delicious... More

Libby was our guide on this tour and she was very knowledgable and entertaining. I learnt lots about Creole and Cajun foods and tasted great beignets, po-boys and muffalattas, while roaming through the French quarter. Would highly recommend this tour.

Usually when we go on vacations, we are not big tour people. We just don't like being limited to a strict schedule and locations.
