Our tour guide was awesome! He hit all the highlights of the Cocktail goodies. The tour was informative and fun!
The New Orleans Original Cocktail Walking Tour was the highlight of my recent visit to New Orleans. My family and I really enjoyed seeing all the different bars / restaurants and hearing about the history behind them. All the drinks were delicious. Joe was absolutely the best tour guide ever. We appreciated his interaction with the group, as well as, his energy and enthusiasm as he told the stories and history of New Orleans. I, myself, am not a history fanatic, but thoroughly enjoyed this history lesson!
Joe was one of the best tour guides I've ever had. This man knows his stuff and the tour is Awesome. Plenty of time at each stop to get a drink and learn about why you are there! I will take this tour again!
I love this tour. I did it about ten years ago and we went to totally different bars/restaurants this time with totally different drinks, stories, bar history etc. Same WONDERFUL guide. This time we were on the tour when New Orleans was experiencing extremely heavy rain. Our guide handed out little ponchos and off we went. We all got wet walking in the flooded streets, but the tour was still FANTASTIC!
An excellent tour! Our guide Joe really knew his stuff and really knows his craft. As I just finished training as a New Orleans tour guide myself, I think I would know. The four bars he took us to were well chosen, and he really knew their history. The featured drink at each stop was a new one to me, and I've lived here for years! The visit to the legendary Antoine's was especially memorable, and gave me a chance to try a Sazerac, which I've wanted to for some time. It's good! And the humble Pirate's Alley Café let me try absinthe prepared properly. Since Joe said he varies the itinerary with every tour, I will definitely be repeating this.
Well worth the tour, it's very informative and enjoyable. The tour guides are so passionate about their town and it's history.
Our tourguide, Brian, was very professional, knowledgable and also had some pretty good jokes. The tour includes a healthy mix of history and libations to ensure all will have an enjoyable time.
Sandy made this tour fantastic. It was a great way to see a bunch of unique locations in the French Quarter, and she provided us with great facts about the drinks and the places we were seeing. She was also really great at working with all of the different tastes in our group. Definitely one of the best tours I've been on in New Orleans. I'd highly recommend.
This tour is more than just cocktails- it's an awesome history lesson about all of the awesome things that you probably didn't know came from NOLA. Joe was our tour guide and he was tremendous. He's been doing the job for 15 years and his knowledge about what happened here was fantastic! Really enjoyed this and would absolutely book it again.
Our guide, Joe was fantastic. He was a wealth of knowledge about each bar/restaurant we visited. He gave us background on the many cocktails we were able to purchase. We were able to go into spots which are not a many tours. Great Fun!
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
