This was by far one of my favorite tours I've taken. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. There's definitely some drinking on this tour but that's not what this tour is about. It's about learning some history of New Orleans.
As many of the other reviews experienced, Joe was a fantastic tour guide. When people heard me say I went on a cocktail tour, they automatically thought I meant booze cruise......I didn't. This tour is definitely a must do if you enjoy learning about the history of the French Quarter and getting to see some behind the scenes things not every tourist gets to. We ended up going back to some of the bars/hotels we went to on the tour to have an appetizer and another cocktail after the tour was over. The only recommendation I would make it that the fact that the cost of the cocktails is additional should be more prominently displayed on the website....or just know....if you partake at each stop (as I did!) the cost adds up.
Make sure you go on this tour! Good drinks with a lot of New Orleans history. Don't miss it.
Our tour guide was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable about the city and the bars we went to! Awesome experience!
Our guide was wonderful...you could tell he enjoyed his job. He was a great storyteller and we learned many interesting tidbits about New Orleans.
This was a great tour!! Our tour guide was Joe and he made the whole experience very worthwhile!! We would definitely do this again on our next trip!!
Great, got to try new and unusual drinks while hearing some history about each joint.
This tour was great. I tried something new instead of just hanging out on Bourbon Street. Our instructor, Sandy was amazing. She really made the tour worthwhile. Her charming personality brought excitement to the tour.
This was the most informative tour that we took! Our tour leader was patient, funny, and knowledgeable and really gave good information about all of the history of the buildings, Mardis Gras, and of the French Quarter. This is the tour I'd recommend -- even for non-drinkers.
"We had a blast" Joe our guide was a local and had great stories and a lot of knowledge!! We enjoyed the tour and the history that went along with the cocktails! Will be telling everyone this is a must do!
We are native New Orleanians. It was a wonderful experience. My favorite stop was the Hermes Bar at Antoine's. We actually met and spoke with the owner when we were there! Our guide, Joe Gendusa, was extremely knowledgable and entertaining. I would recommend this experience to anyone!
A great tour of the best cocktail bars in New Orleans! Our tour guide was very fun and provided some interesting history on New Orleans! The cocktails were delicious! Will definitely do this tour again!!
If you want to know where the classier bars are at this is the tour for you. Sandy took us to Antoinne's, Boussard's, The Court of the Two Sisters, and the Bombary Club. What was great was also learning the history of these restaurant/bars. Thank you, Sandy, for all the information.
Absolutely the top thing we did in New Orleans. Historical, informational and the drinks rocked too!
It is absolutely a must !!!. We have been to New Orleans many times, and we learned so many interesting things. Joe our guide was awesome, so knowledgeable about the history of this great city and of the drinking culture in general. My husband has been on this tour before, and he too was impressed with all the great information and "quirky" historical facts that were presented, We had a great time, and have already referred this tour to many, as a must see. Thanks Joe, for a great interesting and super fun tour.
I wasn't too sure about this when my husband set this tour up for us but I must say that I loved it! The history, stories and the drinks made this a very special trip. Thanks!
Excellent New Orleans experience - our tour guide Joe was excellent - a true local with endless information. Great way to find places to hang out in New Orleans away from Bourbon St. Highly recommend this to anyone, and we did it on our first day which meant we had more than enough places to choose from to eat and drink for the rest of our trip. Five stars!
It was great... Morgan, our guide, was very good and alot of fun. We enjoyed seeing the inside of Antoines and Muriels. Great way to see some of the French Quarter and get some history.. I want to do this again sometime when my husband is with me. I went with my sister this time.
This tour was one of the highlights of my time in New Orleans. I was lucky enough to be on Joe's tour and he was a fantastic guide! His knowledge of NOLA history as well as the background behind each cocktail and its origin was vast and he told some very entertaining stories! Our tour group tried some fantastic cocktails and the tour was an ideal introduction to the city. I was travelling alone and it gave me the confidence to revisit some of the venues again during my stay. HIghly recommended! Make sure you get on Joe's tour!
I usually don't wite online reviews but this tour was so awesome that I felt the need to. The tour was very fun and informational. I would definitely recommend this tour as soon as you arrive in New Orleans because you are shown a lot of bars and restaurants that you will want to return to during your trip. Our tour guide, Joe, was excellent! I would highly recommend even if you don't drink.
