If you want a taste of New Orleans in an afternoon, then you will definitely want to take this tour. We had Linda as our tour guide, and were very happy with all of the information of the city that she gave us as we walked from each location. My two favorite stops on this tour were the Old Coffee...

We had a local tour guide- Jeannine, she was great and very knowledgable. Learnt a few things that's for sure, delicious food and knew the whole vibe of NOLA. What an amazing city and tour guide. No more words can express how this was by far the best way to learn about the culture of NOLA. Do this tour for... More

Overall my friend and I really enjoyed our tour in New Orleans. Regarding the food, I did enjoy the muffuletta at Central Grocery better but it was cool to try another restaurant's take on it. The beignet and cafe au lait were great! Did not particularly care for the third stop of gumbo and jambolaya; my taste of gumbo was... More

This is the best way to spend time in Nola learning about the food and the history. We were lucky enough to have Richard himself take us on the tour, and his passion and knowledge made the ticket price seem negligible. I learned so much while having so much fun, and I highly recommend giving this a try. I'll be... More

We booked this tour for our first afternoon in New Orleans. Richard spent three and half hours with us taking us to restaurants for some of the best examples of local New Orleans food. He was so knowledgeable and genuine, I learned so much about New Orleans history! We went back to several of the restaurants later on our trip... More

We were fortunate to have Richard take us on an eating adventure. The food selections were all good... I agree with a few others that the beignets were better at Cafe du Monde but fried dough is never bad, really, as long as it's freshly fried. Richard did a great job telling stories about each place and about New Orleans.... More

We were pleasantly surprised to have the owner give the intro for our tour guide. Not only did he provide the wonderful story of his founding the business, but his expansion plan for San Francisco!!! Linda took over and and the food frenzy began. We learned about history of the city as well as the history of the delicious food.... More
