Learning about the French Quarter with a relevant cocktail in hand? How can you go wrong?! This is one of the best tours I have ever been on anywhere. While the four drinks provided on the tour are great, the best part is Elizabeth. She is an amazing story teller, mixing in history, humor, and even a song! This is... More

Our group thoroughly enjoyed our #DrinkandLearn experience with Elizabeth Pearce. Elizabeth is extremely informative, funny, and highly entertaining. While different from the "walking tour", the Experience is situated in the lavish Empire Bar of Broussard’s Restaurant. There weren't any distractions, as the bar was blocked off for our drink and learn workshop. We even ran into Elizabeth the next day,... More

Definitely a highlight of my first trip to New Orleans. The drinks are awesome, the stories are hilarious, and yes, there is learning involved. Elizabeth is warm and engaging and has a personality that makes you want to be her best friend. Easy to book, great website, and a value for the price.

Think about the show Drunk History. If you like that, you'll like this. She does a great job of clearing up rumors and false stories other tours tell you. The 4 drinks provided are tasty and she gives the recipes as well. Each drink has a great story attached and the locations all correspond well making it a well rounded... More

Went on the walking/drinking tour round the French Quarter and I thought it was superb. Elizabeth was a real livewire with a clear passion and enthusiasm for her subject. The time absolutely flew by as Elizabeth interwove her stories of NOLA with the drinks perfectly. Just a really good way to spend a couple of hours whilst getting to know... More

We were in the US for three weeks touring round and decided to do this while we in New Orleans. It was the the best, funniest and most educational two hours if the whole trip! Like nothing you will have done before!

This lady knows her booze, history, and how to entertain a crowd with both. I came to NOLA with my husband (who came for work), and the Cocktail Tour was the first thing we got to enjoy together. We loved it - next time we will do the New Orleans Experience. If you like to drink and you have an... More

This tour was the first thing we did after arriving in town and we are so glad we added it to our agenda! The tour was from 6 to 8 PM so just as the French Quarter is really swing into high gear! Elizabeth gives you a carrying bag to take the drinks with you as you walk. Great addition... More
