Our tour guide Susan was the best part of our tour ( along with the food of course!). She was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with a deep history of the various food stops we did. Plus she was very funny!! I would highly recommend this tour ( ask for Susan!!). :-)

Our tour guides name was Jack and he was Great!!! he provided us a very amazing experience with lots of history and lots of fun. We really appreciated his sense of humor throughout as we were celebrating a bachelorette party and he really got into everything with us. He’s very knowledgeable and made a great experience for us. The food we tried was absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend this tour to anybody!
Super Susan!
sally_b, Apr 2024
Susan was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We learned the difference between Cajun and Creole, their not being synonymous.
Olna_D, Apr 2024
This experience was the most expensive food tour that my group and I experienced but yet the most uninterested one. For the price at least 2 drinks(alcoholic beverages )could have been included. The choice of food was not that great for tasting. I was disappointed only due to the price it didn’t deliver up to my expectations. I have the tour 3 stars because I enjoyed the history of the tour.
loved it!
Ray_B, Apr 2024
great guide! great food! great selection of food and locations. got to sample all the go to foods! got some good advice on where to go for dinners while in NOLA. I would definitely recommend this tour. we were definitely full by the end. I'm not sure what else to put or why they require a 100 characters mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
NOLA food tour.
Denise_H, Apr 2024
Great tour. Super food. Unique bites. Not your typical New Orleans tasting. But representative. Susan our guide was very good.
Great food tour
Leslie_B, Apr 2024
Guide Susan- she was knowledgeable about city history and food scene. If you don’t eat pork, I would not recommend the tour.
Worth it!
Sharon_N, Apr 2024
Jack was our guide, excellent knowledge of food history, including past and current trends. Learned the difference between creole and Cajun cooking and so much about NOLA food evolution. Highly recommend.
Great experience
Pamela_W, Apr 2024
Great tour! Food tasters were all amazing (best gumbo ever!) - only disappointment was the Po-Boy in the market… bland. So many better ones in the city. Perfect event for teens. They get food and the adults get to enjoy the history.
Fabulous French Food Tour
MaryAnneD_P, Apr 2024
A most memorable tour. The guide was knowledgeable, personable, & fun. The food experience was just over the top! Six establishments visited, which was just right. The muffuletta was my favorite. I would definitely do this again.
Fantastic Tour Guide, Fantastic Food

Very very good tuor!
Lyndi_L, Apr 2024

Great food and guide
Jenna_L, Apr 2024
Our tour guide Kristi was AMAZING! Great food with great history about Louisiana cuisine! Highly recommend.
Well worth going on the Food Tour!
Dave_B, Apr 2024
First off, Nate was a great guide. He was personable and knowledgeable with the history of the French Quarter and New Orleans. I really like this kind of tour and it was filled with some really good food. The only thing that was a slight negative is that there was no option at several of the places for people who cannot tolerate spicy food. Because if this I got to eat more but my wife ate less. There are a lot of people out there who just can't handle any sort of spiciness and it would have been nice to have options at all the spots for non-spicy food.
Not so great food tour if you don't eat pork
Larrie_G, Apr 2024
I booked this tour for my wife and daughter based on a similar tour we took in NOLA with our grandchildren 2 years. It was far from the same!! Whereas the guide was outstanding (Jack), the food was less than. adequate in quality and amount. Whereas we said that we didn't eat pork, when they went to a food court and everyone was eating alligator and pork sausage, there could have been a substitute fro them. Very disappointing.
Great time with Laurent
Amber_B, Apr 2024
Laurent was great, very nice, informative and stayed engaged the whole time! It was a ton of food, we couldn't eat it all!
NOLA food tour with Kristi
Meg_S, Apr 2024
Fun tour! Kristi added history into our food tour which made it so memorable. Great selection of restaurants. She answered all of our questions. Highly recommend this tour!
Too little food and small portions
Gran_F, Apr 2024
You expect more from a 3 hours food tour regarding the food. 5 very small snack portions. The tour should focus more on food and it’s history and not so much about New Orleans history.
Would go again
Diana_A, Apr 2024
Laurent was very inclusive - there were several different groups of people in our tour of 13. Had lots of fun facts and pleasant with everyone.
Great tour!
Karen_C, Apr 2024
Kristi was an amazing tour guide. She knew all the history and answered every question any one of us had on the tour. She was very friendly and helpful. We got to try several different dishes like charbroiled oysters, jambalaya, gumbo, po’boys it was great. I would return.
Wonderful adventure
Stephanie_D, Apr 2024
