I was a little hesitant to book this but, because you order your own drinks, it seemed like an amazing deal. Frankly, raise the price on this, Viator, as long as every docent is Joe. Not only does he know his stuff, he wrote the book on it. Very interesting tour that takes you behind the scenes at several iconic bars. I bought just exactly what I wanted to drink while soaking up the lore of New Orleans drink culture.
Our tour guide, Joe, was fabulous. He actually wrote the book on New Orleans cocktails. Our stops were entertaining, interesting and educational. He was far superior to the cocktail tour guide I had 5 years ago. Joe knows all the history of the bars and cocktails in New Orleans, including their architecture. Delightful tour!
Guide was very knowledgeable about New Orleans history and cocktails. Had a blast!!! Second time we took this tour and went to different locations and had new cocktails! Well worth every penny

This was one of the best tours by far. Our tour guide Joe, was so knowledgeable and we had a blast. I would recommend this tour and we would take it again!
Sandy was a great guide. Fun way to learn some history about the city and some famous cocktails!
This was the absolute best way to kick off our trip. Joe was an awesome tour guide. He had colorful stories and gave us great tips on other places to go. We went back to all three places he took us later in the week. We would recommend this to everyone!
The tour was amazing, Joe did an awesome job! If you want to know the history of the most famous bars in NOLA then this is for you. They start you with a drink and then you buy at each bar their own classic drinks. A must do!!

Great time , wonderful cocktails and interesting stories , we also met some really nice people
I booked this tour as part of my best friends Batchlorette Party weekend and we had such a blast! We had a very diverse group of girls, so finding things to do where everyone would be happy was a little bit of a challenge but everyone loved this. There were great cocktails, all the bartenders were really nice I accidentally knocked over my absinthe - one of my favorite drinks - and the bartender imminently prepared another, its was really educational, and our guide Sandi was so nice. She was well informed and hilarious, our entire group just love her. I would differently do this again and recommend it to anyone.
Wow! For something booked on a whim this turned out to be our favorite part of our trip to New Orleans. Joe was an incredible guide! He started out by saying if people were looking for a pub crawl then they were on the wrong tour. We thought maybe we were on the wrong tour but by the first stop he had converted us to fans! He knew so much about the history and people of New Orleans and loved to tell a good story. And at each bar he would recommend drinks that we could try. And every recommendation turned out to be top notch. I found at least 2 new favorite drinks - and I'm not even a drinker usually. The history and stories of each location were so fun to hear and Joe's enthusiasm and love for New Orleans was evident throughout. By the end of the tour if felt more like a group of friends walking around New Orleans than a group of random strangers. Can't recommend this enough - if you book one thing in New Orleans book this tour! It's amazingly good!
This tour was so much fun! Joe, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. He took us around to about 4 or 5 different restaurants/bars and gave us a lot of interesting information on New Orleans history.
Sandi was a charming guide with plenty of iknowledge and history and we loved the bars we visited and the drinks we tried
This tour was amazing!! Best guided tour I and #39;ve ever been on anywhere!! Thanks Joe for such a wonderful experience!!
We got to see bars we wouldn and #39;t see otherwise- great tour guide! Very informative and funny!

Outstanding, informative tour. Joe G. was a great guide, taking us to bars that were not simply drinking establishments but also historical landmarks. I learned more about NOLA on this tour than any other. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in cocktails and/or history.
The Walking Cocktail Tour was great - very informative and a lot of fun!
Very enjoyable trip around some of the bars of New Orleans. It doesn't give you much of the history of the city itself, but let's be honest that isn't why you are there! The cocktails are great, the guide informative and it is a fab way to see some of the main sites of New Orleans.
This was a fun tour, introduced me to bars I would never have discovered as an independent traveler. Joe was an informed, relaxed tour guide who delivered history of NOLA with charm and expertise. The cocktails along the way were fun as were the other guests on the tour. Well worth booking.
Our tour guide, Joe, was fantastic! He is a retired professor from Tulane and he was very knowledgeable about the bars and historic areas of the French Quarter. I would take this tour again.
Sandi was a AWESOME guide! My wife and I loved her stories about the history of New Orleans. That is why we went on this tour. The drinks were fun, but having drinks along with a tour of the bars and restaurants of the French Quarter was REALLY great! If you just want to drink, then go to Bourbon Street. If you want to have a few while interacting with a great tour guide like Sandi along with other interested folks, then this is the perfect activity. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to New Orleans.
Brian did a fantastic job explaining the history of both the restaurants and cocktails. We really enjoyed our time with him.
