What You Can Expect

New Orleans Food Walking Tour of the French Quarter

French Quarter Cafe Du Monde

Meet your guide in the heart of the French Quarter to embark on your three-hour walking tour of world-class restaurants. Wander the lively streets of the French Quarter and get an insider's look at the kitchens often seen on food shows and featured in cookbooks. Let your guide know the restaurants you're interested in checking out or perhaps ask your guide to recommend a personal favorite.

Indulge in six or seven food tastings and one alcoholic beverage tasting during your tour. You may have chargrilled oysters at Seafood Treasure, red beans and rice at Napolean House, and beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe du Monde. Try a popular cocktail with a distinctive New Orleans' twist at Pimms Cup. Pimms originated in England, but the Pimms Cup cocktail was dreamed up in New Orleans. Your tastings are all included in the price of your tour and easily add up to a meal's worth of food. There's a moderate amount of walking involved as you move from one exceptional restaurant to the next, so it's easy to work off the calories!

Well, let me first apologize for submitting this review late. The food tour was fantastic!!!. Our tour guide Elizabeth, was great too. She introduced us to various, New Orleans cuisine, such as the Po Boy, Muffaletta, Gumbo, home made Pralines candy and lets not forget the warm Beignets from Cafe DuMonde. She also shared very interesting facts and history on New Orleans in general. This tour was absolutely worth it. We were all so full after the tour. I recommend this tour with out hesitation.

I enjoyed this tour immensely even though it was extremely hot outside that day. Phillipe was very knowledgeable about New Orleans. Most of the restaurants and shops were air conditioned and we talked in the shade. The food samples were great ! I thought there was a good mix of food to try -- gumbo, poor boys, drink, pralines and gelato. Enjoyed the art and spice shops also. Would highly recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This tour was very good. We were only four people so it was nice. The tour Guide, a former chef, was enthusiastic and very informative. We went to different spots and tried samples of the most famous food in Nola. We had gumbo, po boy sandwich, beignets at cafe du monde, muffaletta, and more. The samples are good in size and by the end of the tour you will be full! Cafe du Monde in the morning is extremely crowded, the lines are endless... but our guide was already waiting for us with a bag full ofmfresh beignets. I absolutely loved and would recommend it to someone who likes trying new food.
