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!

I loved this tour. I love to cook and bake so it was right down my alley. This history was very interesting and so were the stores we visited. The best tastings have been scouted out and we enjoyed every one of them.

I recommend this to anyone who is new to the town. If you're lucky, you'll get Wanda as your tour guide. She was FANTASTIC. Her sense of humor and knowledge of the town was much appreciated. We enjoyed it so much that we doubled back to one of the restaurants after the tour.

What makes a great tour........A great tour guide. Wanda was awesome. Her energy level and love for her tourists was very evident in the way she took care of us. I came home sharing some of the French Quarter history which was remarkable. The food tastings and drinks were as rich as the information we received, it was all good, the beef brisket was a little over cooked but we still ate it. Thank you for that unforgettable experience which we will do again and I hope Wanda will be our tour guide.

This tour was a delightful way to begin our New Orleans sight seeing. Our guide, Trish, was a bundle of energy and shared many anecdotes about life in the French Quarter. She spoke quite a bit on the history of the area, knew details about the architecture, and was happy to recommend the best places for XYZ you name it! The tasting tour alternated between a bite of something savory with a bite of something sweet. I took a card from each establishment so we'd remember where we had been and then, later on in our trip, we ended up going back to several of the restaurants for meals.

Philipe was great, amazing amount of information. Lots of food tasting, loved it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

This was a good tour. Trish was our guide and she was really nice. It was a little more history of the city than we excepted but it was very interesting. I would have liked to taste test a few more restaurants. One suggestion might be to give out a list of the places we visited. We tried to find them to go back for dinner and had a hard time remembering the names and addresses.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Our guide, Trish, was knowledgeable and full of energy. She gave fun facts, stories/legends and history as we went on our tour. Great way to try different stable New Orleans dishes while learning the history. Great food and atmosphere. Will definitely visit some of the stops on my next trip there.
