I went along on the food tour because it's what my friend wanted to do and it ended up being one of my favorite parts of our trip to New Orleans. Our tour director, Richard Crawford was a wonderful guide, gave us lots of good...More

This tour was awful. First, our tour guide didn't check tickets so people were there that were scheduled for the next day leaving us without enough food at the first stop. The first stop did not have enough seating for us and the tour guide...More

As Director of Operations for Tastebud Tours, I read each review with interest. I read yours, and was disappointed we didn’t meet your expectations. I well remember the incident you recount. Our guide did check tickets, but one group had bought tickets through a third-party...More

Our guide was extremely informative, not just about the history of the food, but about New Orleans as well. Definitely well worth the money spent. Do not miss an opportunity to take this tour.

Had a great tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Not too much walking and not too much food. Just a great selection of NOLA classics

Started our vacation in New Orleans with the Tastebud food tour and found this a great way to get familiar with the French Quarter. Enjoyed all the foods we got to taste and were definitely full afterwards.

Our lovely guide, Linda, was great. Originally from New York, she has been a NOLA resident for a long time and spent a lot of time learning about it - probably better than native New Orleanians. It poured rain the first 2/3 of the tour,...More

I highly recommend Bruce's tour - what a great way to spend a few hours! We enjoyed learning more about the French Quarter and how local foods and flavors evolved, and our restaurant stops were very good. Red beans & rice, gumbo, jambalaya, shrimp &...More

This includes the food - there is enough for a moderate meal, but the real value is in the tour guide's insight into local history and customs!

I am recovering from a broken leg and can't walk long distances or climb more than a few steps. Can I manage this tour in New Orleans ?

I would wait until your next visit. It's a walking Tour, Thanks
I must eat Gluten free--I am wondering if there would be anything I could taste. My poor husband is allergic to shrimp. Not for sure if we should just do a walking tour, but we would love to do the food tour. We know New Orleans is a allergic reaction waiting to happen to us!! Thank you, Janet

Most of the food was heavy gluten-- muffalatta- bread, po boys- bread, the base for some of the gumbos and jambalaya also contains flour so I would skip it...😕
