What You Can Expect

New Orleans Food Walking Tour of the French Quarter

French Quarter Cafe Du Monde

Your foodie adventure begins in the French Quarter. At mid‐morning, meet your friendly, food‐loving guide and set off through the lively Vieux Carré (Old Square), where the smells of sweets and spice fill the streets. This highly flexible tour relies on your interests and requests, so let your guide know what places you’d like to see or foods you’re itching to try.

The 3‐hour excursion includes six to seven hearty food tastings and one alcoholic beverage – and a fair amount of walking to burn it off! Due to the custom nature of the tour, every group’s unique dynamic invites a different array of sampling. Perhaps begin with a warm beignet – a New Orleans french‐style doughnut – and a cup of coffee at Cafe du Monde. Then continue on for some rich seafood gumbo or chargrilled oysters. As you wander through the French Quarter, colorful signs for traditional poboys or meat‐filled muffulettas may beckon you. Don’t resist!

Between stops, your guide will pass highly acclaimed restaurants and kitchens. Head into the famous French Market, where you can check out goods from local small businesses, and to Pimm’s Cup for a tasty adult beverage. Hear the history of this classic New Orleans cocktail that features a distinctive British spirit.

By the end of the tour, you’ll have a full belly and a better understanding of the fundamental dishes that makes up New Orleans cuisine. You will return to the starting point with time to explore before heading back to your favorite new eatery for dinner!

Our tour guide Lisa was wonderful. Loved her knowledge and history facts about New Orleans. It was like getting two tours for the price of one. The food was fabulous but it was great we were able to see so many sites too.
