Kristi was an excellent guide, and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, its culture, and its classic dishes. The muffuletta was a favorite.

Tour guide - Laurent was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. Am from this area and still learned some things, especially about Cajun/creole cooking.

OMG, Laurent was awesome. This was one of the best tours we did. There were about twelve of us on the tour and he made sure he interacted with everyone. Great knowledge.

This is the second time we have taken this tour with Laurent-brought our son and his wife this time- delightful! His breadth of knowledge of food and the city of New Orleans is admirable and we loved our time with him! We’ll ask for him the next time we visit the Big Easy. Thanks for a memorable afternoon.
