This tour was our first on our trip to New Orleans. I wanted something that would sound interesting and fun to my husband so when I found this tour on TripAdvisor it was a match made in heaven. We loved Elizabeth; she is genuine and hilarious and so knowledgeable about the city and the drinks, someone walking by during the... More

This is amazing. This was my first visit to New Orleans, I wanted to book some fun tours. This was probably my favorite. Elizabeth is engaging, genuinely friendly and very knowledgeable. We also made some friends on the tour and had a few drinks together after. I'm so glad I book this tour, and will be recommending it to friends... More

We went on Elizabeth's tour a couple of days ago. There were only four of us, so it was quite intimate. Elizabeth has a great knowledge of the city and it's drinks and loves telling us tourists. The drinks were quite strong and I was a little drunk by the end, but we made new friends who we continued drinking... More

By far the best thing we did in New Orleans. Great drinks with a knowledgeable host and a delightfully grumpy bar man.

Elizabeth’s cocktail tour was such a highlight of my time in New Orleans. She is an amazing story teller, is very funny and incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the city. Her ability to engage and ‘round up’ a group of increasingly tipsy tourists is quite astounding. The only word of warning is that some of the drinks are quite... More

Elizabeth is a top notch story teller. All four of us enjoyed listening to the history of New Orleans as told through cocktails. Each of the five cocktails that we sampled was expertly made and we made a point to try them at other cocktail bars during our stay. They were best during Drink and Learn. Thank you so much... More

We were delightfully entertained and informed by Eliizabeth's History of New Orleans in Five Cocktails. A great value and a must do while in the crescent city.

New Orleans offers all kinds of different tours - the options are seemingly endless, but if you are looking for a tour that will teach you a lot while keeping you engaged and entertained (and get you a little drunk as a bonus!) then look no further! New Orleans is a party town, and this tour is a unique and... More
