Worth it! - We walked away from this tour very full, more informed of traditional New Orleans cuisine, and got to see a part of town we have missed in the past. Thank you, Ty, for a great visit to your city!

Excellent food and lots of history of the city, neighborhood and FOOD! - We had an excellent time with Ty today as we ate until we burst on Magazine Street. Some dishes were familiar to us; but not ones we had chosen off the menu on our own. Learning the history of the local cuisine while chowing down was extremely satisfying and fun ! ;) Ty was willing, even encouraging of questions and had all the answers when we asked. We had a very small group which was great for meeting new friends and having great conversation while we ate; in between the informative stories of the tour. We highly recommend this tour! We have done several food tours and this one was very generous in the food portions, do come hungry and expect to finish ready for a nap !

This is the food tour you are looking for… - The food tour was great. The restaurants were well chosen and the dishes were delicious. Not only did our guide explain the food, but how it related to the history of the city. I will be doing more NO Secrets tours in the future.

Terrific, fun and delicious - Terrific tour - exceeded my expectations. I had done a bunch of research on places to eat in NOLA, but Mark introduced us to places and goods I would not have otherwise tried, and I am grateful to have done so. His enthusiasm and knowledge was infectious, and suggestions went beyond things to as well. Top notch.

Thee Full Experience - Tour#1 We've been to New Orleans 3-4 times prior to this visit. Being the self proclaimed foodies we decided to go on the Food Tour. We had such a great experience trying new foods and learning about the history behind the flavors. Mark was so knowledgeable and full of great recommendations for us to try on our own. Off we went trying all the recommendations bumping into some of the best part of New Orleans the people. Tour #2 We had such a great time we decided to go on their Ghost Tour. Ty was so passionate and knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans like a walking encyclopedia of information. As we walked along on this tour we bumped into the larger size groups (like 20) we both looked at each other and were grateful for being able to hear our guide and each other as their tours are limited to 9. Tour #3 I mean we were on a roll and when in NOLA. The Voodoo tour was so informational and fun Anderson had just the right amount of mojo to keep us laughing and amused throughout the whole tour. Some parts of the tour were dark, but the last stop made it all come together. We were Grateful for the experience and gaining a better understanding of New Orleans Voodoo. Tour #4 We just had to do the cocktail tour as our grand finale. Mark again one of New Orleans natives who just wants to make sure that everyone is having a great time and enjoying the best spirits of New Orleans took us on a great tour of good drinks and conversation along the way. As I speak for my partner in crime and I We can honestly say we got the best of New Orleans Secrets from this awesome tour company. Quick tip: Bring Cash it is a great way to tip and some places may only take cash.
