Lots of food to taste. All thw food was yummy just got pretty full. Even the food had history of how it came about in New Orleans along time ago.
Our guide was wonderful and we learned a lot about the history of the French Quarter. We were however, taken into back rooms for food tasting which left much to be desired when walking through beautiful patios and dining rooms.
This tour is a must. I learned a great deal about the origin of the local foods and their various differences. I also learned a bit more about the city as well.
Bruce was a fabulous tour guide, deeply knowledgeable about the history, culture and food of New Orleans, and extremely friendly. There’s no way to do justice to New Orleans food in just five locations, but our stops were all delicious
The tour itself was not bad, enjoyed walking around the French Quarter...that said, the offerings lacked flavor not the guides fault. Now, my biggest pet peeve, Linda the tour guide left little to be desired. I can see how it could be presumed that she is knowledgeable...I am not sure if it is lack of knowledge or she just doesn't care, but she had a specific slant on how she described the origins of certain foods and the history of the Quarter. I found her to be disingenuous and seemed more interested in talking about herself and what property she owned, failed food network audition, etc. It is my understanding that her husband does a wonderful job he popped in and did seem to be warm. If I had to do it again, would I? Nope...not worth it. Again, the food wasn't bad, just no flavor. However, what ruined the tour for me was Linda herself details matter.
This was our 4th or 5th trip to New Orleans, but the first time we have taken a tour. We decided this time that we would let a local provide us with some insight into NOLA food and fortunately, chose this company, Tastebud Tours. It was fantastic! We had the pleasure of tasting some of the best food NOLA has to offer at some of it's most iconic restaurants but the biggest surprise, and ultimately the best part, of the tour was the depth and breadth of historical and cultural information our fantastic guide unfortunately, we have forgotten his name provided us along the way and at each stop. HIs story-telling skills, along with his extensive knowledge, made for a most entertaining and educational not to mention delicious time. We would highly recommend this tour.
