We just finished our tour and I had a much better time than I ever expected. Our guide, Richard, was well versed in his knowledge of New Orleans food culture and history. No question we had stumped him and he was clearly passionate about what he does. I would absolutely recommend this tour; money and time well spent!

Tour was recommended by friend just back from New Orleans. It was WONDERFUL! Richard was the perfect guide; very personable and knowledgeable. The food was delicious! Took the tour on our 3rd day in NOLA to get a better idea of the local food. My husband and I went back to Johnny's Po-Boy for the roast beef po-boy. Can't get... More

Jeannine was a phenomenal tour guide! She is incredibly knowledgeable and well prepared. The food at each stop was delicious and I would highly recommend doing a tour if you are down in New Orleans. If you get to have Jeannine as your guide she will educate you on the complete history of the city along with the background on... More

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
