Our tour guide, Laurent gave us the origin and the basic ingredients to many of the well known local cuisines. And we were introduced to a generous sampling of each by the different restaurants we visited. . Kudos to this former chef, Laurent, and his associates. Many thanks for a very special day.
The tour guide for this tour was amazing. Her knowledge and friendliness made this outing exceptional.
What a wonderful way to begin my visit to New Orleans. My guide was so much fun and incredibly knowledgeable. It’s a great idea to have a food tour at the beginning of your visit to become acquainted with some of the exceptional restaurants and cusine that you just know you’ll want more of. Couple that with tales of the amazing lore of the French Quarter and you know that booking this tour was a terrific idea. I highly recommend this experience!
Great selection of foods and excellent guide. Well worth the money and time. Great information about the history on the French Quarter.
This was the absolute best food walking tour I've taken and I've been on ones in NYC and Chicago. Our guide, Suzy, was extremely knowledge about both the history of the buildings and general history of New Orleans as well as the food. Do yourself a favor and don't hesitate to book this tour and hope you get Suzy for your guide!
The tour was ran by Destination Kitchen and was way more than we anticipated. Excellent tour guide by the name of Susan. Lots of food tasting stops and learned a lot about New Orleans as well. Highly recommended.
Our guide, Susan, made sure we tasted some of the best food in the Quarter and gave us so much history along with the food stops. It was a lovely and lively walk around the area - my only regret is that I didn't do this my first day or two in New Orleans so I could take in all the new places I learned about. Susan was very informative and was fun to be with. Excellent tour, guide and food! Highly recommend this tour - and Susan!
I've done a lot of food tours and they are all a bit different. This one is more of a history tour through the French Quarter, with added food stops - ie. it isn't so much about the food as the city. That said, the food was amazing - all savoury (no stops for random beignets or pralines in between savoury courses) and all specialties of New Orleans - jambalaya, beef brisket with horseradish, oysters, muffueletta, alligator etc. Our tour guide, Brittany, was very knowledgeable and fun, really bringing the city to life.
Cut it to two hours and maybe it would be a good time. Too much talking on crowded, loud streets so if there were interesting things to learn they couldn’t be heard. The tastings were unremarkable.
Susan was knowledgeable and anxious to answer all questions in order to make our visit to New Orleans pleasurable. All the food was good and added up to a really nice lunch.
This tour was the highlight of our trip!Susan was our Great tour guide and explained the food culture of New Orleans as we walked and sampled a variety of local foods and drinks.We met a lot of fun people on this tour and had a fabulous 3 hours full of laughter,interesting history and lots of fun!Highly recommend this tour and will do again on my next trip back to NO!
This tour was great. I enjoyed the walking history learning of New Orleans. However, the food samplings were minimal with the exception of the small bowl of gumbo that we were served on the upper floor, allowing great views of the square and folks milling about. I am granting the tour 4 stars because at some of the establishments, we had to wait a very long time to be seated if we got seated. At one, we waited over 30 minutes for a small, one-bite sampling of the food. The restaurant was crowded, however, the wait was not worth the small bit of food we were offered.
Milton was excellent during our tour and helped my wife and I show the gem Of New Orleans to our two daughters Nicole and Sara. We will tell everyone we know about the tour and the fun that we had.I think I was talking to family.... first class guy gave us a first class tour.
Our guide was Kristi. She was very knowledgeable and informative and FUN. The food was great. It was a wonderful experience. So glad we took this tour.
The tour was more of a history tour than a food tour. 5 tastings in three hours...that’s 1-2 tastings per hour, and the last “tasting” consisted of our tour guide passing out a prepackaged praline for us to eat as we stood on the street, which was disappointing. We had more stops to talk about landmarks and history then we did for actual food. Our tour guide also had a bit of a sarcastic attitude towards some of the attendees at the beginning as well. It wasn’t the worst but I was ready for it to end after the first two hours, and I wouldn’t do this one again.
