What You Can Expect

New Orleans Food Walking Tour of the French Quarter

French Quarter Cafe Du Monde

Your foodie adventure begins in the French Quarter. At mid‐morning, meet your friendly, food‐loving guide and set off through the lively Vieux Carré (Old Square), where the smells of sweets and spice fill the streets. This highly flexible tour relies on your interests and requests, so let your guide know what places you’d like to see or foods you’re itching to try.

The 3‐hour excursion includes six to seven hearty food tastings and one alcoholic beverage – and a fair amount of walking to burn it off! Due to the custom nature of the tour, every group’s unique dynamic invites a different array of sampling. Perhaps begin with a warm beignet – a New Orleans french‐style doughnut – and a cup of coffee at Cafe du Monde. Then continue on for some rich seafood gumbo or chargrilled oysters. As you wander through the French Quarter, colorful signs for traditional poboys or meat‐filled muffulettas may beckon you. Don’t resist!

Between stops, your guide will pass highly acclaimed restaurants and kitchens. Head into the famous French Market, where you can check out goods from local small businesses, and to Pimm’s Cup for a tasty adult beverage. Hear the history of this classic New Orleans cocktail that features a distinctive British spirit.

By the end of the tour, you’ll have a full belly and a better understanding of the fundamental dishes that makes up New Orleans cuisine. You will return to the starting point with time to explore before heading back to your favorite new eatery for dinner!

Wanda, and the food were sooooo amazing! We learned so much about the history of the food, and also learned that we absolutely love it all!

This was an AWESOME tour, both of the food tastes of the south and the city and the history, all rolled into one. Our tour guide, Wanda, was THE BEST. The tour took over 3.5 hours and we enjoyed every minute of it. We sampled gumbo, muffelatas, brisket, gelato and pastries, Pim's Cup drink and a few others that I cannot remember the name of. You definitely did not need another lunch that day. As well, she pointed out various restaurants along the way and described the history of the areas that we were walking through. I would definitely recommend this tour -the best that I have taken in a long time.

Best part of our trip to NOLA. Wanda, our guide, knew a lot, not only about the food, but also the history of NOLA. We tried many different dishes, and they were very accommodating to dietary restrictions. Do this tour early in your trip and you will have a great list of choices of where to eat. There is a lot of walking involved so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

This was a great combination of fantastic food, great history, and a human Google named Trish. Trish was an entertaining tour guide who knew the cuisine, the history of the French Quarter, the Garden District, New Orleans, the Mississippi, etc. If you are taking this tour please ask for Trish.
