Not What We Expected
, Oct 2019
When I called Tastebud Tours to confirm our reservation, the gentleman said to “arrive hungry”. This tour should be described as a Food History Tour, not a Famous Flavors Tour. A lot of walking, a lot of talking, and not much eating. Not a good tour for a foodie and not a good value for the money. Left the tour and had to get something to eat. Would not recommend for anyone expecting good New Orleans foods.

Very well done tour. Tish was an excellent tour by. The restaurants seem to represent a good cross section of the district.
Response from Host , Sep 2019
We're please to hear you enjoyed you edible education through the French Quarter with Tish! Her passion for the City of New Orleans is contagious and we're so lucky to have her be a part of the Tastebud Family! We'd love the opportunity to provide you a Taste of Chicago or San Francisco next! Until we meet again- wishing you all the best off the EATEN path!

Lots of food to taste. All thw food was yummy just got pretty full. Even the food had history of how it came about in New Orleans along time ago.

Hi Tinarobi- thank you so much for taking the time to let others know of your experience on our Flavors of the French Quarter Food Tour. It sounds like you got your fill of both food and knowledge- a great combination. We'd love to host you again in the future! Until we meet again, all the best and tasty travels.
Great afternoon in the French Quarter

Great walking tour of the French Quarter. Linda, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the history of the quarter and her food knowledge was excellent as well. It was a nice way to see parts of the quarter you might ordinarily not see and learn some history along the way.
Great start to our tour of NOLA!

Our guide was wonderful and we learned a lot about the history of the French Quarter. We were however, taken into back rooms for food tasting which left much to be desired when walking through beautiful patios and dining rooms.

Beautiful day starting in the French Market. Tour group was a nice size of approx. 12 people. Visited Café Du Mond to see the benets being made, but unfortunately didn't get to sample one did that the next day ourselves. Then off to TuJacques for some red beans and rice. Laura's for a tasty sampling and praline treat. The last three stops I didn't get the names of the restaurants but we had a PoBoy, muffuletta, and shrimp and cheesy grits. All stops were very tasty and took us to places that we wouldn't have thought of trying. Our tour guide was informative and it was a nice walk at a good pace so put on your comfortable shoes. Glad to have done this tour and will definitely do this in other cities while on vacation.

Bruce was a fabulous tour guide, deeply knowledgeable about the history, culture and food of New Orleans, and extremely friendly. There’s no way to do justice to New Orleans food in just five locations, but our stops were all delicious

This tour was the highlight of our stay in NOLA. Richard, our guide and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the city.
