What You Can Expect

The Original Taste of the French Quarter Food Tour

Food Tour

Bring your appetite and walking shoes for a delicious tour of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Make your way to the French Market in the early afternoon to meet your local foodie guide, and set of on a leisurely stroll through the surrounding historic streets. While visiting at least five different eateries, learn about the unique confluence of cultures that gives New Orleans cuisine its distinctive flavor.

At Johnny’s Po-Boys, in business since 1950, bite into one of the city’s classic lunch dishes — a baguette loaded with savory meat or seafood that was originally served to striking streetcar operators in 1929. Pop into The Old Coffeepot for a taste of the sumptuous Cajun jambalaya that that Guy Fieri tried on the Food Network’s ‘Diners, Drive-ins and Dives,’ and soak up the historic charm and bold flavors at Tujague’s, a former Spanish armory that dishes up a mean boiled beef brisket smothered in a special Creole sauce.

Finally, satisfy your sweet tooth with decadent southern-style treats and hand-dipped chocolates at Laura’s Pralines and Candies, New Orleans’ oldest candy shop where expert confectioners use recipes passed down from the 18th century. Be sure to save room for one last surprise sweet treat, a specialty New Orleans dessert. All tastings are included in the tour price and together make up a diverse and satisfying lunch.

Linda was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Not only will you experience many different foods of New Orleans but you also learn the history, architecture and meet lots of nice people at the restaurants who obviously know and respect Linda and her tour. This would be a great, fun way to get to know the French Quarter as soon as you arrive but either way dont miss this tour.

Excellent tour with Linda.
Linda not only has the best foody spots but adds in history as you walk from place to place, plus some shops that you might miss. We could have follower her around all night.
Thank you!

Our guide was Jeannine Chance. A former elementary teacher and principle, she was empowered by seeing the light of new understanding in our eyes. The walk was always a short distance in the shade to the next famous eatery, always with an interesting history and a favorite of the locals. We would then sit in the dining area of the Restaurant while she told us its history and the history of that particular food. The samples were enough that we took some with us for our late night snack.

Bruce was very knowledgeable and shared so much info about New Orleans that it was more of a history tour than a food tour. The food was good and he kept us well-hydrated. The walking was really pretty easy even though it was beastly hot that day. We had brisket and learned the difference between gumbo and jambalaya. My favorite was tasting the Muffeleta sandwich and the history of it. The bread pudding was amazing!
