“A MUST for visitors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

What a great introduction to the area! From a bakery specializing in King Cake, to local savory favorites - including a behind the scenes visit to a boucaniere for smoked pork - Marie provided great Cajun insight and a special experience. Boudin, cracklins, smoked sausage, catfish courtbouillon, gumbo, we tasted it all and enjoyed every bite. Even if you've been to Lafayette before, take this tour! Thanks, Marie!

“Food, fun and friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

The Cajun Food Tour was absolutely the best of the best in Lafayette. We met new friends from out of state as well as had a great time on the party bus. We ate delicious food, were told very funny jokes by Marie. What a hostess! Her teacher and history background really made the difference. Most of us are natives of Lafayette and really enjoyed learning some of the history we didn't know and visited places and tasted foods we had not had before. What a treat! A must to do again as she has many other tours to choose from. Thank you Marie!

A true Cajun experience... Marie has made the food "scene" interesting, comfortable and yummy! Tour of local food to match the local personalities and a bit of history thrown in.. Great variety of sweet and savory bites of Cajun delights.!!!... A nice way to see the area in comfort with no driving worries...The tour last several hours. The "food" bus is equipped with coolers so purchases can be made and stored...Best way to see the area, meet wonderful people and eat Cajun food!!!!!

“Tourist In Our Own Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Six friends from the local area booked a Cajun Food Tour as a going-away party for one of the friends who is moving out of state. We are all folks who have lived in the Lafayette area anywhere from 7 years to all our lives. This was a fabulous time for all of us! Marie drove us around in the 'party bus', gave a running commentary of the history of the area, and even told some funny 'Boudreaux-Thibodeaux' jokes! The food extravaganza lasted 4 hours and we went to 7 food places and one non-food place (to view the magnificent 500-year-old oak tree on the grounds of the Cathedral of St. John). We all learned some things we didn't know and made some new friends from Winnetka, IL and southern Missouri. It was SO worth the $49 per person and was almost like a mini-vacation at home...very fun being a tourist in our own town! If you are coming to Lafayette from out of town, it is definitely worth a half-day of your time to do either the morning or the afternoon food tour and get to sample some of the best food that the Best Food City has to offer!
