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!
NAG United States of ...
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.
Joe Gendusa knows his history! Loved this version of a cocktail tour. The price reflects that you purchase your drinks but that allows you to pick at each place what to try. Joe was great to suggesting which drinks match with your preferences.
We had a blast on the New Orleans Cocktail Walking Tour. Brian was our guide and he was funny and informative. The drinks on the tour are not free, but they are reasonably priced and it worked out fine for us to buy one drink and share it between the two of us at each stop. We learned some history behind how different drinks were invented, as well as the old restaurants and bars in NOLA. It was pleasant and a great way to spend a couple of hours. Nice people on the tour to visit with too.
OMG..... Joe IS NOLA!!! The man is a walking reference to everything and adds his own personal tweeks as you walk! We would never have visited the sites included much less would never know the background that was so appealing!! Joe survived Katrina and shares the city's survival means while enjoying cocktails as only NOLA can provide!!! Tasted some real gems of drinks that we will seek out again thanks to Joe!!! Kudos and thanks to a favorite tour that we will definitely recommend!!
This is the second time I did the tour with Joe and it was a great experience. He is a very knowledgeable guide and has a great personality. Both times we went to the same bars but they were enjoyable anyhow because I had forgot certain things.
We had such a great time, I highly recommend this tour. It was very informative and fun! We had Nancy as our tour guide and she was fantastic!
We had such a great time and would highly recommend this tour. Very informative and fun. Nancy was our tour guide. She was fantastic!
Great way to see the city and learn about the drinks and history. After taking this tour, we went back to a few of the places that we passed along the way.
What a fun tour! Start with a drink at the meeting place on the Mississippi and go from there. Our guide had great stories about the facilities we visited and how these unusual drinks came to be. You'd never learn them any other way! He managed to have the drinks always ready for us when we arrived and we could sip and sit while he told us the history of these ancient restaurants. Had 4 new drinks while on tour - great fun, nice pace. Highly recommended for learning for New Orleans.
