This was a excellent opportunity to taste a diverse selection of foods unique to New Orleans -- alligator sausage, traditional jambalaya and gumbo, poboys and the very best pralines! Susan, our experienced and knowledgable guide, lead us through the streets of the French quarter entertaining us along the way with historical facts and fictional stories. It was a delightful experience and well worth the time and money. Michigan resident

We had a great food tour throughout the French quarter with Susie (I think?). Great information about the background of the development of NOLA cuisine....and a surprising amount of food! Come hungry; we had sausage, jambalaya, gumbo, fried clams, and bread pudding, and the serving sizes were definitely not samples!

Such a fun tour! Our guide Laurent did an amazing job showing us around the city and taking us to different destinations to taste the local cuisine. I am always nervous with food tours that you won’t leave feeling full, but with this one that is definitely not the case. It was a delicious experience and the guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the foods origins and the city in general. Would definitely recommend!

The tour guide was great. She shared a lot of information about the food and history. The food was just ok. I guess we’d need to do one of the more expensive tours to get better food.

Knowledgeable tour guide. Fun stops with great service. I was disappointed that we didn’t have the small group tour that we wanted (there were 18 in our group, we wanted the 12 or less option). However, Jack did a great job of making sure everyone heard the stories and felt included.

Kristi is a phenomenal Tour Guide. She’s friendly and very knowledgeable in history, culture, and food. We had a great time! I’m My only note is you don’t get your money’s worth if you’re a vegetarian (there should be a 10% discount or something). I was given a salad instead on a shrimp po’boy at one location which was a bummer and I had two of the same dish at another spot while other guest got three different meals. It’s only an issue because I’ve been fully accommodated on other food tours, but I guess the lesson is they love meat in NOLA 🤷🏾‍♀️
