The highlight of our trip was the cooking class and cocktail walking tour. The chef was fun and gave us great tips for making mouth-watering gumbo, jambalaya and pecan pralines. The walking tour was a blast as tour guide Joe native New Orleanian shared the origin and history of local restaurants and bars, along with the unique drinks created at each bar on the tour. Bring some cash and/or your credit card so you can buy and taste the local drinks at each stop.
This tour was amazing!
This was definitely a highlight for us. Apart from picking up some valuable hints on creole food preparation, we were highly amused by the humorous and uplifting personality of Kevin Belton.
Then our cocktail walking tour really completed a nice afternoon for us. We visited establishments that we most likely would not have sought out on our own The Court of the Two Sisters, Antoine's.The tour guide, Sandra Smith, was so entertaining and full of life that I considered her a real NOLA gem. She not only guided us through the Quarter but made numerous recommendations on where to eat during our stay.
Too bad I cant give the New Orleans Culinary tour with Big Kevin and the cocktail tour with Joe 10 stars. We loved this tour!
Chef Kevin was knowledgeable and entertaining. We have done a number of cooking classes and this is the best demo class ever.
The cocktail tour was equally entertaining and informative. The timing between the 2 tours is a little tight, but we made it withvno problem.
Excellent experience all around. The chef was awesome. Great show, great food, great stories. Cocktail walking tour always a plesure early on in a trip
it was very good.
Very enjoyable experience. Instructor did a great job providing historical information about New Orleans with the cooking demonstration.
We loved this experience. everyone was so friendly. Chef Michael was very entertaining and the food was great. Loved it
The Culinary portion of the tour was the only part I participated in and it was fabulous. The chef who taught the class and cooked the 3 dishes gumbo, pralines and jambalaya did so in a delightful mix of personal stories, humor and sharing tips. Each table had about 6 guests and the room was full. Ample food served to be a mini-meal for the late afternoon. Beer, tea, water served as well. Would recommend telling guests who also signed up for the cocktail tour before the cooking class begins to leave about 15 minutes early in order to walk over to meet up with the next tour to do the cocktail walking tour. We missed it because we didn't know. The tour staff were accommodating though and gave us other options for later that night. The Ghost Tour at 7p was awesome!!!
