    Absolutely loved my Magazine Street Foodie Tour w Mark from New Orleans Secrets Tours. We sampled savory cuisine as well as sweet treats alongside local diners in the Garden District. The food choices were eclectic and reflected both classic cuisine and evolving trends to reflect the city’s current vibe. Mark is personable, knowledgeable, and clearly loves his city and all it has to offer. As a bonus, he pointed out a variety of local businesses and galleries along the way and we learned a bit of New Orlean’s lingo. Highly recommend. Can’t wait to return with friends.

    Jeff was a great tour guide. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food, culture, and history of New Orleans. I appreciated that our food stops were places frequented by New Orleans locals and not locations that you could simply find yourself in a travel catalogue. Jeff did very well selecting scenic routes as we rode from stop to stop. Being a Louisiana native I can say that this tour provides plenty for both locals and visitors to enjoy.

    We did the Oak Alley plantation and Swamp tour combo. Jim (our guide) was very knowledgeable and fun. Learned a lot about New Orleans history, the plantations, cemeteries, mardi gras, and many things creole and cajun. Special shout out to our driver Dwayne driving through a very foggy day with very low visibility and getting us everywhere on time.

    My husband and I were so full after the foodie tour! I loved trying all kinds of food that I have never eaten before! All of it was delicious! Bonnie was very knowledgeable about the French Quarter, the culture and its food. It was the perfect walking tour and she knew just the right places to go. We actually returned to one of the restaurants the next day.

    This past Friday, I made a great call and took my girlfriend out for 73 Distillery's Tour, Tasting, and Cocktail Class, and all I can say is, go check this place out because I already know it's going to be packed every night of the week soon.

    Shout out to the Seven Three Ambassadors, Rene, and Kristen (rockstars) for making this a great experience for us. My girlfriend and Rene got me to give gin another shot after a 20-year hiatus, and I can honestly say their Gentilly Gin made me a believer. That and the Bywater Bourbon are definitely going to be my go-to gifts this Christmas.

    Went in around 10pm and caught the second set. Place was packed, but worth standing. Bar tenders were great.

    We went here every day for the frozen Irish coffee. Every single day. One day, we went twice. Best way to start the day.

    Went here on a recommendation by my brother to see Richard Scott. He, by far, is the best Jazz musician I have ever seen. It’s like his hands just play without him even thinking about it. No sheet music for him. All by memory and let me tell you his hands move quickly on the keys. We were just in awe. I must say his voice didn’t match the person. It was very good, but his deep voice doesn’t match what he looks like. YOU MUST go see this guy perform. Definitely worth the time. He plays from 12:30pm-2:30pm every day. Take money to give him a good tip. He is definitely entertaining. I have one complaint. $9 for a bottle of Bud Light (ridiculous).

    We walked in and sat at the bar for some great cocktails. The Wolfe Johns jazz band were superb. Great location on Bourbon in Royal Sonesta Hotel

    Excellent music and great ambiance! Ordered one of the speciality cocktails and that was very good. After enjoying the music for a bit, our group browsed the evening art market setup right next door!

    We stumbled upon BMC and heard an awesome band on the Monday night, friendly, inexpensive drinks, great band/audience interaction. Came back to find that they were closed on Tuesdays, but Frenchman Street just next door. Finished Thursday with Dixieland group, omg...don't miss this this venue if you are over 35 :}

    We walked in as the band were playing and we were just smiling because to us that was New Orleans to a tee. I went to the bar and got 2 reasonably priced drinks from the worlds most miserable barman. But it didn’t change the music, Leroy an his band were ace and we really would recommend a stop off here .
