We had a good time, everything went well. Our guide is well well versed, knowledgeable. Perhaps a little eccentric, not to our tastes, and he was a little too soft-spoken, hard to hear. We enjoyed the walk, the stories and the food. Only did 4 spots, I thought 5 was on the schedule. Nonetheless, would do it again and excellent value for the money.

Please read carefully. Trip Adviser totally mucked up this reservation. I paid for our family of six and received a confirmation receipt, but unfortunately the tour company didn’t. The owner of the tour company apologized profusely but couldn’t do anything about it. After spending thirty minutes on the phone with trip advisor, they promised to refund my money in 3-7 business days. What customer service. Out $450 while on vacation and such a poor reaction from trip advisor. Good luck travelers.

The condo is gorgeous. The location is the best since it’s close to everything but still far enough away to be quiet. They were very responsive if we had questions or concerns and it had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here!

What a great way to taste the flavours of this fabulous city. A native of NOLA, our guide Michael had all the knowledge, passion and annecdotes of his home city - and the accent to match! The pace was comfortable, as were each of the stops we made. The signature food items we tasted were straight out of the guide book so it literally ticked all the boxes. Thanks for the memories - we’d recommend this to others!

We highly recommend! The owner went out of his way to accommodate us when we realized we mixed up our tour date. Our guide, Lyndel, was terrific. She was warm, welcoming, and a fount of knowledge about New Orleans’ food scene and so much more. We learned so much about NOLA and left with a full tummy and a fuller heart.
