If you don't do any other tour, do this one. We were lucky enough to have Joe Gendusa as our guide. We walked to several bars and restaurants and had the option to buy their signature cocktails. He added so much city history! Don't miss this tour!!

Sandi Smith was such a great tour guide! She knew so much and recommended the best drinks. I was with a bachelorette party and it was a perfect mid day activity!

We came for a bachelorette party and were absolutely satisfied with the tour! Although the drinks were. Little pricier then other places in NO, the history and parts of the bar that Sandi showed us were very worth it!

Ina, our tour guide from Historic New Orleans Tours did a fantastic job taking us through the scandalous bars in the French Quarter. Her stories were fabulous and she had lots of energy. The cocktails she suggested were perfect for the tour. We had a great time.

I tried my hardest to screw up this tour (originally booked for the night we got into town and then forgot it started at 4pm but luckily remembered this at 3:45pm), but so glad we were able to make it. This was definitely the highlight of my first trip to Nola! Ask for Joe as your tour guide - he... More

Last weekend, we had another couple that joined us in New Orleans. They had heard about how much fun we had on this cocktail tour, so we signed up to do it again. And who did we get as our tour guide - Sand Smith AGAIN! It was like winning the lotto. The fun part is that even though there... More

We had a large group of 17 individuals so we were able to have a private group with a tour guide assigned to us. This was perfect since we were celebrating a 60th birthday and tend to be noisy. The tour guide was excellent (Brian) and really knew interesting details of the drinks and the history of the bar/restaurants that... More

Exceeded our expectations. It's a very informative and interesting tour of NOLA's landmarks. A lot of anecdotes of NOLA's families. Good tour for architecture that you cannot guess are behind the doors of seemingly boring houses. The cocktails presented were really interesting too. And the guide was funny.
