Great food tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and it’s food. We learned a lot, while having a lot of fun too. We got to try many of the traditional New Orleans dishes. By the time we were done, we were so full, we didn’t even go to dinner that night.

This is a great tour! Dr. Gumbo was very informative, interesting and fun! We enjoyed learning about the history of Louisiana, the local food, and the restaurant stops were delish! This is a great way to explore the French Quarters and get great tips on things to eat, drink, and do. We highly recommend Dr. Gumbo’s tour!!
