This is an excellent tour. Full of lots of history and good eats! Ben was an awesome guide when we took the tour in late January (pre Mardi Gras is the perfect time to go). He even arranged for a special dessert at our last stop since it was my husband's birthday. Very highly recommend!

This review is so unexpected and so welcome! We've been shut down due to COVID related restrictions since March, and just reopened last week with very limited options. I'm so glad to hear you have such a great memory of this tour! Ben is an amazing guide, performer and human being and I'm glad you got to experience that day with him, especially for your husband's birthday :) We are all very much looking forward to hosting again, when it is safe to do so. Red beans and ricely, Doc

Highly recommend this tour! It was the only tour we booked for our Trip to NOLA and wow did we make the right choice! Beth was the most amazing, friendly, and knowledgeable guide. She made the day extra special! The food was plentiful and delicious as well!

We go on a food tour whenever we go on holiday. We are massive foodies, and our jobs involve wine. We are picky when it comes to food & drink. This was excellent. We went on the food & cocktail tour. Granted our tour was just me and my wife (corona virus...) but the food and our guide Marc were as good, if not better than we hoped. Portions were sensible, but still filling. Alcohol was plentiful, but not too much. The tour was very informative, and Marc was a great guy. Do not hesitate to book this. I cannot imagine there being a better food tour of New Orleans. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

This was our favorite activity during our week in New Orleans. The food was all delicious. We were full when we left and also had some treats to take away with us. Mark was a great tour guide! I would highly recommend this tour.
