My husband and I have been on food tours all over the US and some in Europe. This was, by far, the most disappointing one we have done. The portion sizes were small, served on paper or Styrofoam containers, and not one restaurant employee ever...More

Our guide, Naïf, did a great job of sharing New Orleans history and explaining how modern cuisine evolved. Our food tastings were excellent, and it was fascinating to see behind the scenes at Antoine’s and Arnaud’s.

The history and walking was perfect! We saw some of the oldest bars and restaurants. The back room tour of Antoine’s was incredible. (Not for getting drunk at Pat O’s)

Guide know all the secrets of the places we visited. We had gumbo and red beans and rice, pralines, alligator soup and more. Lots of time to rest between walks.

Excellent guide - food was delicious. Got to see parts of New Orleans I hadn't had the privilege of seeing in all my trips there. I would suggest this tour to others.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

My understanding of the Caesar's program is that you can only use their credits at the 40 plus hotels and casinos associated with their program. This is not one of those programs.
