Go for the gastronomic gusto on a food‐filled walking tour of New Orleans! Journey with a savvy local guide to popular Creole eateries, markets and artisanal shops to sample diverse foods that define Louisiana’s culinary landscape. Stopping at up to seven locations, you’ll savor such classic bites as seafood gumbo, Creole brisket, poboys and pralines. Along the way, meet local chefs and learn about New Orleans’ rich culinary history.
  • Historical New Orleans food walking tour
  • Visit restaurants that predate the Civil War
  • Discuss recipes with a guide and the chefs, when possible
  • Sample delectable Creole cuisine including beignets and po-boys
  • Learn about the diverse culinary origins of Louisiana’s rich cuisine
Your gastronomic adventure begins in the French Quarter. In the afternoon, meet your friendly, food‐loving guide and set off through the lively Vieux Carré (Old Square). The 3‐hour excursion includes up to seven hearty food tastings – and about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) of walking to burn it off!
Your first stop is SoBou, part of the acclaimed Commander’s Palace enterprise. Relish in haute cuisine (‘high cooking’) with dishes such as boudin balls and sweet potato beignets topped with foie gras. If you’d like, grab yourself a drink at the bar before continuing on (own expense). Then head to Leah’s Pralines, where you can sample a Creole classic or a new innovation such as bacon pecan brittle. 
As you continue through the French Quarter, colorful signs for traditional poboys or meat‐filled muffulettas may beckon you. Don’t resist! Your guide will lead you to Little Vic’s Sicilian Trattoria to sample the muffalino— a Little Vic’s original full of mortadella, salami and ham – then on NOLA Poboys. Hear about seafood harvesting in Louisiana before biting into a fresh‐made oyster or shrimp poboy. Then you’ll make a quick pit stop at a popular hot sauce bar to sample dozens of hot sauce varieties. 
Hopefully you will not have filled up already, because the next stop is Tujague’s to sample traditional slow‐cooked beef brisket, and on to Tableau for some seafood gumbo. As you indulge in these tasty bites, learn about the many ethnic culinary traditions that have influenced Creole cuisine. Your guide will also explain Louisiana’s unique geography and the linguistic origins of classic plates like étouffée and jambalaya.
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.

We got Ben! He was a local, had great tips, recommendations and knowledge! Highly recommend!Fun way to explore the French quarter. Food was not that crazy, so don't worry if you're not an adventurous eater. Not for anyone that is vegetarian or gluten free. Small groups, ours had 10. Really great tour would do again!

I loved our guide, Ben, I have learned so much about New Orleans and the different types of foods, Ben is the best story teller, the history of the area, how different things got their names. I learned so much about Creole and Cajun, the history of the French Quarter. Ben is the best. I will recommend this tour to all my friends.

Hunter, our guide for the tour was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. We had about 10 different samples from 7 establishments. Everything was delicious, and the samples were very generous, in my opinion. I was pretty full once the tour was over.

Fantastic tour! Hunter our guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining, bringing together the food we were tasting with its background and why each held its place in New Orleans cuisine

The quality of the food was excellent, and the amounts given for tasting were generous you won't need to eat before or after this tour!. There was a bit of walking yes, I know it's a walking tour between each stop, but this is only because you're being taken to what turned out to be the best establishment to showcase what we were being introduced to. It was also great to get to see a bit of the French Quarter as a result.

Do yourself a favour - get to the starting venue early to enjoy a cocktail beforehand a great way to start!!

Thanks for the tour Hunter - love your work!

We love taking food tours when we vacation because it gives you the opportunity to sample local foods. This tour was great and we got to try a lot of local favorites which was nice because we could not have eaten at all of the restaurants during our stay. Hunter, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and also the food origins so we learned a lot. DO NOT eat before you go on this tour as you receive good size samples and are quite full at the end!

This tour is a must do for anyone visiting New Orleans. Ben was our tour guide and did an excellent job. It was definitely worth the money. All of the food places we went to were great and the food samples were generous. We tried foods we never had before and would never think of trying. We definitely have a new found love of Cajun and Creole food. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
