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!

This tour was fantastic! It was the first thing my husband and I did when we arrived in New Orleans. Our guide, Wanda, was great! We learned a lot about the area by walking around the streets and making various food stops along the way. Our food samples included Zapo's chips, mufaletta, pralines, gumbo, brisket, a Pim's cup cocktail, macaroon, and boudin ball. It was all delicious. We were able to get lots of pictures too. By the time we finished the tour, we had made some new friends.

This was a good introduction to New Orleans food. Our tour guide was entertaining and she brought us to some fun restaurants. I especially enjoyed visiting the French Market. We returned several times to see more of the market. My only caveat - do not eat ANYTHING before you take the tour: the tasting portions were enormous.

We had such a great experience with this tour. The history lesson was excellent and how it related to the cuisine was very educational. Our tour guide was entertaining, thorough, knowledgeable and the food sampling offered had great variety. I highly recommend this Food Walking Tour to anyone I know!

Although I am not much of a foodie, my wife is, but I enjoyed the stories behind the birth of the varous quisines and potions, and enjoyed the tastes also, plus the back room tours if you would of the restaurant areas.

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.
