Laurent was amazing
Cherie_S, Sept 2022
Laurent was an amazing tour guide. He educated us on the history and culture of the food. The food was great. I even tried alligator for the first time and it tastes just like chicken. You can really tell when someone enjoys their job and Laurent sure shows that he does which made the tour fantastic. Thanks Laurent.

Jocelyn_E, Sept 2022
Our guide was late and left us to guide ourselves twice. Worst gumbo I've had during my trip. Not impressed. You can skip this if you do research before your trip
Fun, informative and delicious!

Kristi did a great job sharing information about the history of the French Quarter. The restaurants we stopped at provided a nice variety of food. Our favorite was the photo stop overlooking Jackson Square and the Cathedral. Be sure to arrive at your tour hungry!

Come for the History Lesson Not So Much the Food
AnneClaire_F, Sept 2022
Learning the history behind the evolution of Creole and Cajun foods. The guide was excellent in sharing the history of the French Quarter and how/why different cultures ended up in that part of the US. The samples of food were OK compared to past experiences eating Creole/Cajun cuisine.
The best food + stories
Devon_H, Sept 2022
The food is NOLA is always amazing, but it was fun hearing the history behind the food and the culture here. We had everything from white boudin at Four Generations booth at the the French Market to traditional pralines made by the ladies at New Orleans School of Cooking. Kristi was so good at keeping us interested and full!
