Indulge in food tastings during your tour. You may have a classic gumbo as a seafood treasure, boudin beignets and other authentic nibbles.

Wonderful Tour and Great Guide! - Would definitely recommend this tour (and particularly our guide Susan) for anyone visiting New Orleans. She was informative, knowledgeable, and most importantly matched the energy of the group to allow everyone to enjoy our time. Not to mention managing a bachelor party and 2 couples - not an easy task! The food was delicious and bits of history kept you engaged. Thank you Susan for being one of the highlights of our trip.

Great food tour with history and French Quarter sight-seeing - Our guide Susan was great - fun to chat with and very knowledgeable about the history of and numerous cultural influences on New Orleans cuisine. You'll get the rundown on which dishes are Cajun, Creole, Irish, Italian, etc. and how those cultures came to be a part of New Orleans. In addition to the great food, you'll see a lot of the French Quarter. All-around great experience.

Fun and knowledgeable foodie tour! - Susan was amazing and knowledgeable. She kept a good pulse om the group and walking speed - always checking in with each of us. My hubs had lots of random questions and she was rich with information. We did the 1130 tour and skipped lunch - I'm small and my hubs is bigger at 250lbs and we both were left full and happy!

Great intro to NOLA food - Really enjoyed this tour. Susan gave us lots of background information on what we were eating, and we got to try quite a few items. Plenty of time to enjoy (and, if wanted, visit bathrooms and/or buy drinks). There wasn't a ton of walking.
