Nate was funny and very informative. We did not leave hungry and the drinks were just the right amount. We went back to several of the stops the next day to buy gifts to take home AND for the 32oz Pimms Cup!

We took the tour with our two pre-teen daughters. It was a perfect balance of history lesson about New Orleans and the evolution of food in the city. Tour guide was brilliant and the food was terrific. Highly recommend.
