A Misnamed Tour

We like doing a food tour of every major new city we visit, giving us what we think is a good feel fo the city and its culinary delights. This was one of the worst we've done. That said, we had an extremely good tourist guide, Jeannine Chance. By chance (pun intended), a former elementary headmistress, her knowledge of New Orleans' history was outstanding, and she was brilliant at imparting all that knowledge to the number of people who joined the food tour. Trouble was this was a food tour, not a history tour. The food in each establishment we went to was like being on a sausage factory conveyor belt. We had to wait for other Food Tours to be escorted out of the assigned venue, then led us in, feed us with VERY average food, and then shoo us out of the venue ready for the next Food Tour to feed in. We did not have one good bite on the Tour. Not one. As I say, ironically we got our money's worth courtesy of the luck of the draw getting our Tour guide on the history of New Orleans. As for a Food Tour, it was extremely disappointing and not recommended for others.

our guide, Suzanne(?) was very informative and seemed to know her New Orleans history well. her specialty is coffee which was cool, she's writing a book about the history of coffee in New Orleans. the places we visited were exactly what we expected, the muffuletta sandwiches were everyone in my groups favorite by far.

I enjoyed the tour with Tish. She imparted interesting information about the food. I would have liked to learn a bit more about the history of the French Quarter and New Orleans, but the food was good and the group was really fun.
Great time!

Janice, Janice, Janice! We had such a wonderful time on this food tour! I really cannot say enough about the tour and our tour guide, Janice. She was full of energy and was like a ray of light. She not only taught us extremely interesting facts about the food history of NOLA, but gave us an overall history lesson of NOLA and the French Quarter. Informative and fun with some fabulous food! I want to go back and take this tour again the next time I am in NOLA. Would highly recommend it, especially in the beginning of your trip. Bring your walking shoes and get ready to eat some great food! A truly fun afternoon.

This was a disappointment. The guide was prone to negative comments about her role as guide and tour was disorganized. Places were not ready for us when we arrived. She seemed to be winging it. Last place didnt have space for us so we ate out of to go paperbags sitting at docks. Two of stops served sandwiches. Since seafood is highlighted in NOLA, would have been nice to have a taste.

The tour was good, the only downfall was that we had to wait 10-15 minutes for our food at each location.
