This was a great tour. It included 4 very strong drinks and some great history on the city. Elizabeth is full on information and so bubbly. I really enjoyed walking around the city, sipping on local cocktails, and learning about how alcohol shaped New Orleans. New Orleans is full of tours and I think most of them are likely a... More

Did the Drink and Learn New Orleans Experience with Elizabeth at Broussard's Empire bar. It was a fun and informative hour and Elizabeth is a delightful and engaging host. Loved the video she showed of Louisiana Gov. Huey Long's bartender showing how to make a Ramos Gin Fizz. What's more, she is aided by bartender Paul Gustings who is not... More

We were looking for a tour.. something a little different, and chose the "Cocktail Tour." Well worth it. We went on 7/10, and had a blast. The history part of the tour is great - Elizabeth doesn't just recite who did what when, but put into a real life perspective - the various cultures coming together, and why the drinks... 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.
