This tour was amazing. Lindsey our tour guide was great. Not only did we receive history on cocktails, but also on New Orleans and the establishments we visited. The cocktails were delicious. We would highly recommend this tour, if you would like to take a break from Bourbon Street for a few hours.

Well worth it, and we will do this again . . . especially with friends, next trip. Dr. Gumbo aka The Reverend Most Doctorly in Drink Benjamin Wisdom is a talented impresario. He weaves showmanship, comedy and serious history, local and world-wide, all the way back to 12,000 B.C. to tell the story of hard liquor through the Ages. If you have a companion, you experience six drinks in all two of which are shared, so you each enjoy four full-sized boozey beverages. The brandy crusta was a bit too sour, but the sazerac, my tai, and a number named after a NOLA mayor from past glory days were fantastic. An excellent three-hour walking tour. Excellent value. Great entertainment!

This was a great evening. It was so well organized and lots of fun. The 3 hours went by so fast but we weren't rushed. Our guide was a good historian and had a fun sense of humor. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

This is a great tour! I was in NOLA on business and wanted to have an evening out. This tour hit the spot. The tour group visited various bars and learned about historic cocktails and the characters that make New Orleans the amazing place that it is. Ben was our tour guide and he is a great story teller and is a wealth of information for anyone visiting NOLA. The group had a nice walk together through the French Quarter, visiting Jackson Square. The tour ended near Bourbon St. at a historic venue, with great jazz playing. I was able to easily find a taxi afterward.

This was the best part of our trip to NOLA. Dr Gumbo has to be one of THE best tour guides out there. He's entertaining, funny, and very very very knowledgable. All of the places and drinks we tried were amazing! Thanks to this tour we found our favorite spot and even went back the next day. Don't even hesitate to book this tour. Do it! You'll thank me later!

Very easy to meet up with this tour. Guide was great. Got to conversate with some very interesting people during this tour. Learned a ton about New Orleans general history and cocktail culture/history. This was a great tour and I recommend it. During the tour we leaned about a great restaurant we ate at later that was very fun SoBou. That was a nice value added. During the tour you get to taste some of the best known and some of the not so well known historic cocktails of New Orleans. The guide was a true local and answered all of the questions our group posed very well. If you like to walk and enjoy New Orleans history and culture this is a great tour.

This tour was my favorite if you like to try different cocktails and learn about the history of them..this is the tour for you. Our group was very small and intimate which was great. It made it more personable and allowed for easy flowing conversation to occur. Lindsey was a great tour guide. She knew a lot about cocktails and the history of them making their was to New Orleans. It is a must do tour!
