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!

Our guide was amazing started by giving us beignets from Café Du Monde, we got to go around and see the French Quarter and try famous dishes like gumbo, muffuletta, we even went to have a cocktail at Pim's Cup. Our guide passed through popular restaurants and kitchens. Got to hang out and explore the famous French Market. Our group was small enough that our guide could each give us attention and answer our questions. Definitely a good tour to taste your way around NOLA and see the city by foot.

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.
