This was the best tour of our trip! Ask for Richard and eat your way into the history of NOLA. When you are done Richard can tell you about all the best bars and jazz slots to check out

My wife and I were on a quick trip to NOLA and wanted to get a feel for the food scene without spending a ton of money hitting all of the recommended places (that would have been impossible anyways as there were so many recommendations!). This tour was perfect! Our tour guide, Richard, shared great stories that told gave a... More

We all enjoyed our tour. We were four of us and the only ones on the tour. It was a great personal tour. The food was all good. I think the Muffaletas are better at Central Grocery and the beignets are better at Cafe du Monde but, it gives you a good all round flavor of the city. I assumed... More

We absolutely loved our time on this food tour. The selections were varied and thoughtful, and the pacing of history, trivia and context was perfect. I would recommend this tour to someone interested in trying new things, since some items may not have broad appeal (I did not care for the gumbo, but am so happy to have tried it.)... More

We loved this! The food was delicious and varied, and all very unique-- there was nothing you could find just anywhere. Our guide Richard was super sweet and we enjoyed that history was integrated throughout. Richard gave us city recommendations too! We did this in the cold though, which was a bit tricky.

Took this as I have done amazing food tours in new york but this didnt compare. None of the food was bad, but none of it was great either. Guide was friendly and enthusiatic but all the places we visited were not really know for these dishes. Instead spend the cash on the guidebook 'eat dat' and make your own... More

We did Tastebud's Food Tour with Richard and it was the highlight of our trip! He was personable, genuine and knowledgeable. Not only did we enjoy gorgeous local fare (we are still salivating about it) but we also learned very interesting food and non-food-related facts about NOLA. As others suggest, make sure you come hungry and with an open mind!... More

We were a fairly large group that have done food tours in other cities and really enjoyed them. This tour was average, our guide Bruce seemed very scattered in his thought process. He had lots of info but was hard to follow. The muffulettas were good but only half were toasted. Everyone enjoyed the Po Boy but the jambalaya was... More

If you are visiting New Orleans, make sure to schedule the 1:00 Tastebud tour on Wed. with JEANNINE!! She is absolutely the best. Not only did we get to taste many traditional foods as we walked through the French Quarter, but Jeannine shared many extras "lagniappe" about other historic buildings. My favorite food was the roast beef po-boy at Johnny's... More

A friend and I were only going to be in New Orleans for 2 1/2 days and he had never been before and loves to eat. I thought this tour would give him a great taste of some of the classic New Orleans food and it did not disappoint! Richard was our tour guide and we both appreciated the history... More
