Absolutely wonderful tour. We loved our guide, she was so sweet and so much fun. It was a wonderful chance to try a lot of different kinds of food without having to commit to a whole meal. We were stuffed and happy at the end. It works as a great tour of the city as well. Highly recommend.

Kristi was our tour guide. She had a lot of energy and was very thorough in explaining the history of New Orleans food dishes including gumbo, creole, Cajun, jambalaya, boudin, pralines and many others. We walked all around the French quarter stopping at various restaurants along the way. Highly recommend this tour. It was well worth the cost, great timing, fun to meet others from all over and we walked away very full.

We had a wonderful time on the tour. Susan was a fabulous tour guide and did a great job. We had been around too some of the same spots on our own but there was so much we missed and that Susan pointed out to us. A walking tour is a great way to learn more about the French Quarter, it’s history and food. Thank you Susan !!!
