Elizabeth delivered exactly what we hoped for on this tour. I can not say enough good things about my experience. I was really looking forward to the ‘history’ portion and our guide did not disappoint! She carefully positioned the group in comfortable and relevant spots throughout the French Quarter. She paid attention to every detail and her professionalism was outstanding. She was also everything you want in a tour guide- organized, communicated effectively, brought life to all the stories she told, timely and extremely detail oriented. Elizabeth definitely made the most out of her tour. The flow was laid back but controlled. The stories were engaging BUT ‘WHAT ABOUT THE DRINKING’ you might ask?! Well, the drinks she provided on the tour were intriguing, intentional and very good. They were cold and each beverage had its own place during the tour. It was very much worth the cost of the reservation and I will recommend her to every local and visitor we talk to from now on. Look this entrepreneur up! She even has a podcast and so much more. Thank you Elizabeth for an amazing afternoon in the city.

Elizabeth was so knowledgeable and obviously loves what she does. It was pouring rain on our journey, and she made sure we found spots to not get us too wet, while still enjoying the city and it's history. The drinks were great, and it was just a wonderful tour!!

This was my third time doing the Drink & Learn Tour (that alone should tell you how much I enjoy it!), and I feel like it gets better every time. Elizabeth's intimate knowledge of the city, especially the history of New Orleans, is unparalleled. We had a group of ten of us (many of whom were in NoLa for their first time), and they were all equally impressed with the combination of learning/fun that we had. This is a must-do whenever visiting this amazing city - honestly the tour in and of itself is worth the price, plus you get 4 authentic New Orleans drinks to boot!

Elizabeth is truly a gem! She made every historical fact super interesting with either a theatrical speech, fun narrative or even a song. This was by far the best tour I’ve even been on. I would highly recommend!

This was an awesome experience! I am not a big drinker or a big tour person, but my husband and I both really enjoyed this. Elizabeth is knowledgable, funny and entertaining and the drinks are tasty and fun to try as she explains their history and connection to New Orleans. This was so fun and I would recommend it to anyone - even if you aren't a drinker, you would still enjoy the talk Elizabeth gives and learn a lot!

Elizabeth was hilarious! Not only can she give you drink history, but she does it with various accents and great storytelling ability. One of THE BEST tours we've been on and worth every penny, even if NOLA was hot and humid as the dickens, it was a blast!

Elizabeth is awesome! This was a very fun, and relaxed tour of downtown, and a great way to get briefly acclimated with the city.

Elizabeth takes care of everything, all you have to do is show up ready to walk, drink and have fun. I would recommend to anyone who likes cocktails, and history!

I took my daughter on this experience for her 21st birthday and Elizabeth made our trip!! Elizabeth's tour is not only So FUN but the history, stories, and sights were perfect. We stood or sat and listened to the history & the stories. The walk is not far and the duration is just perfect. We did the tour at 1pm after lunch and it was PERFECT! The group that we were with was eclectic and great! I have recommended Elizabeth to all of my friends and we will be doing the tour again next time we visit New Orleans! No other tour is like hers - she knows so much and it honestly felt like we were on a walking tour with a Broadway Actress!! My daughter tells everyone that this was the highlight of her birthday!

Elizabeth's knowledge and positive energy were only surpassed by the delicious cocktails she prepared for our group. The cocktails and locations she chose helped us better understand New Orleans, a city we love and have visited multiple times. We had such a fun afternoon. This tour is great for a group of friends, couples or people travelling alone - the small group atmosphere was very friendly. I recommend highly to all New Orleans visitors!

I had read about Elizabeth’s tour pre-Covid and kept the article.
I am so glad that I did and booked the tour during my stay last week.
Elizabeth presents the history of the New Orleans in such a way to match her amazing drinks that I wish the tour had been longer. The time flew by and the drinks were amazing.
Highly recommend this tour.
Who ever knew a history lesson could be such fun!!
