My family and I came to New Orleans to visit but we had never been here before. We purchased tickets for the food tour with Bruce and we absolutely loved it!!!! We could not have asked for a better person to tour us around. We enjoyed his tour so much that we referred a daughter and mother we met while... More

So many great places, so much good food: muffuletta, po-boy, gumbo, jambalaya, beignet and pralines! Lyndel was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and clearly loves doing the tour. She had great stories, and I feel like I know a lot more about New Orleans, especially the great foods they are known for.

This is a great way to get acquainted with the restaurants and history of the French Quarter. Dave Thomas was our guide and he couldn’t have been more personable. There were 15 people on our tour. We never felt crowded, and it was nice to have the opportunity to sit with different people at each stop. The assortment of food... More

I really enjoyed the opportunity to taste multiple New Orleans classic dishes. I was expecting more from our guide considering the reviews.. Bruce was nice enough but seemed frazzled and scattered. To his credit, our group was small and not energetic at all so it didn't make it easy on him. The tour lasted 2 hours and a half which... More

GO HUNGRY!!!!!!! There was so much food! It was great to have a good mix of various types of food and the history and cultural influence. It was about 3 hours long and well worth it.

My husband and I loved this tour. We went on a Wednesday and had the female tour guide (Janeane?). Our group size was just 4 people on our tour, which while small, I enjoyed more than I probably would have a large tour (I hear there can be 10-15 people some weekends). We knew we wanted to do a food... More

Come out to this tour without much expectations, price was reasonable, Richard was a great guide and had great knowledge of the food and town , don't be deceived by the low price, you will be full after this tour so come on empty stomach :-)

We LOVE doing a culinary tour at the start of our trips because it’s a great way to explore multiple places in a short period of time and then plan where to go back to for a full meal. This tour was no exception. Our tour guide, Lyndell, was AMAZING! She is a teacher which just added to her ability... More

Not only was this a delicious and filling tour, but I was surprised at the popular and historic places we were able to visit as a group. Our tour guide, Lyndel, did a fantastic job!!! She is a local and a teacher, so we were also able to learn quite a lot about the city as we explored. She also... More

This was a great introduction to NOLA.... Our guy was extremely knowledgeable of the area and the food was to die for!!! We went back to all the places we ate at because the food was so delicious! We would definitely recommend this tour!
