Owner description: The best way to experience the flavor of Louisiana! Laissez les bon temps rouler on our cozy customized tour bus. Visitors will learn the history, love the culture and, best of all, stop to taste several of the infamous Cajun delights that make our city so unique. Enjoy samplings of some of the best local eateries while our guides bring Acadiana’s culture to life. Our daily tours make 5 different tasting stops! Lafayette was recently voted the Tastiest Town in the South by Southern Living Magazine, and Cajun Food Tours wants you to find out why!We pick up from many area hotels. Enjoy fun, friendly Cajun hospitality in a cozy setting.

There's just so much to say about Marie and her tours! She's an absolute hoot, even if some of her jokes seem to go over the heads of the tour group! Not everybody can appreciate a good Boudreaux/Thibodaux story. And, on the serious side, she definitely does her best to ensure everybody has a good time! She is very knowledgeable about the local customs and the history, and does a fantastic job of gearing her topics to the interests of the particular group on the tour. When the group is a tad bit shy about asking questions at any of the stops, she will pipe in to get a conversation going. Our tour was a mini-tour, which I believe was a first for her, as there were so many of us that we were split into two groups alternating the excursions. Great way to do this, as I can imagine that having 32 people descending on an eatery at one time could probably through everybody’s day into a tail-spin. So, for our mini-tour, she selected four establishments, which was a good number to keep everybody’s attention – not to mention appetites – from being overwhelmed. I highly recommend Cajun Food Tours if you’re making a visit to the area, even if you ARE from Louisiana. There is so much to learn and appreciate from the Lafayette area.

I arranged a trip for 28 with Marie of Cajun Food Tours (half day) and John Pastor of Cajun Excursions (half day). The attendees tell me it was the "best tour EVER!" They absolutely loved Marie and all of the tasting spots she chose for the group. They definitely got some Cajun in their blood while with her. It really gave them a taste of Acadiana. Thanks, Marie for a job very well done. My guests couldn't have been happier! Bon ton on Cajun Food Tours!!!

This was one of the most enjoyable things I've done in a long time. Marie is such a bright and enthusiastic person that it is just fun to be around her but, most importantly, she puts on a tour of Cajun food that is something you couldn't possible figure out on your own. We had a taste of a broad spectrum of Cajun foods from throughout the Lafayette area coupled with her explanation of how these foods originated. To go with it, she was a fountain of information on Cajun history We will do her tour again the next time we are in that area.

If you are raveling through Lafayette and want to try the foods of the cajun culture, then don't miss the Cajun Food Tours with Marie! Marie was a social studies teacher that wanted to try something new, and developed this tour that highlights the foods of Acadiana. She has a great personality and knowledge of the history of the Acadiana area. Between food stops she shares her knowledge and some great jokes (Boudreaux and Thibodeaux). We tried a variety of foods including shrimp poboys, smoked meat sandwiches, boudin, cracklin', alligator, boiled crawfish, and king cake. If you have friends or relatives visiting then don't hesitate to call Marie and set up your Cajun Food Tour!
