History buff foodies wanted!
What an amazing tour! If you're looking to walk and taste some of the foods (by taste I mean fill up on) and history of the NOLA cuisine this is the tour for you! Our guide was Jack And he was so much fun had a ton of knowledge of the food this history of the flavors and how the amazing melding of cultures created some of the world's best tasting foods! This tour was so much fun id not only recommend it to anyone wanting to get a bit of everything, but I'd go on this tour again if we went back! Thanks Jack for everything!

We had a really good time on this tour with our retired-chef guide Laurent. He talked knowledgably about the history of the city as well as the culinary factors that have come together to make "Nola food." Highly recommended.

Best part of our trip to NOLA
Such a wonderful tour! Our guide Susan was amazing. Very enthusiastic, took time to chat with everyone separately, had great knowledge to share about the history of New Orleans and the French Quarter, and obviously loves her hometown. The food was great with generous portions (like a whole shrimp and crawfish boudin sausage, not just a few bites) but not so much that you can't walk afterwards! It was great to walk in to each restaurant and see tables set up for our group and delicious food ready to serve. Our only mistake was taking the tour on the last day of our girls' trip instead of the first!

Generous Portions and Hospitality
Oct 2021
We toured with Susan on a Friday afternoon. She took us on an informative and leisurely stroll through the city that we all thoroughly enjoyed. Susan took time to get to know each of us and our food preferences so that she could give very personal recommendations for restaurants and bars - which we greatly appreciated. As for the tour, she thew in some local history and lore as we moved from one spot to the next. The portions were quite generous and very delicious, so much so that we didn't really want much dinner afterwards! Great start to our New Orleans vacation.

This was one of the best food tours we have ever taken. Kristi was so informative, considerate and the places we went were amazing with good size samples to try. Go hungry because you will be fully satisfied by the end of the tour. Great tour.

Food tour was amazing
Susan was an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable and made the experience fun. She also helped answer questions and gave us recommendations for food and drink locations. The food was all awesome to try… boudins, grilled oysters, gumbo, jambalaya, muffuletta, alligator bites and pralines.
