  • New Orleans: French Quarter Food Tour

    1. New Orleans: French Quarter Food Tour

    Your culinary tour of New Orleans starts where it all began — the banks of the Mississippi River. From here, you’ll witness the lifeblood of this region which brought new cultures, new influences and new ingredients to the USA through its ports. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you'll indulge in New Orleans' most iconic breakfast pastry covered in powdered sugary goodness, the beignet. Next, head up to the French Market, the site of America's oldest public market and a unique culinary space where you can grab a local bite to eat and meet some of the locale's colorful personalities. From the French Market, you’ll embark on the picturesque streets of the French Quarter where your guide will take you to some of their favorite palette-pleasing spot, both classic New Orleans as well as delicacies you won't find outside Cajun country. If you have an affinity for...

    We did the tour on our 4th day. I would recommend doing at the very beginning of your trip because our tour guide provided so much great & relevant information that was beneficial for the remainder of our trip.

    Nate is the absolute best tour guide I’ve ever had. So down to earth, friendly, and INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about everything NOLA. If possible, do yourself a favor and try to book him as your guide. Cannot say enough good things about this man.

    "Dr. Gumbo" (guide) was TERRIFIC: funny, interesting, knowledgeable. He took us to 5 food places in the French Quarter that had OUTSTANDING local cuisine...particularly the catfish po-boy which was better than the white lake fish we're used to in Wisconsin! The gumbo was a treat, with a twist on German heritage with a little potato instead of rice.

Ben was an amazing guide for our tour. We felt like we were visiting local favorites with an age old friend who knew the city like the back of his hand. We heard great stories of the history of New Orleans peppered with great humor while sipping cocktails and enjoying fantastic food. Other than the food, drinks, and stories, we really appreciated that most of the interactions, other than walking between locations, took place indoors with the AC and not outside in the July heat and humidity as several other tours we did during our trip were.

This was a fun and tasty tour. Angela was a fantastic guide, took the time to get to know the personal tastes of the individuals in the group, and was very knowledgeable. There is more than enough food at all the stops to be a compete meal. We sampled gumbo, jambalaya, boudin sausage, muffulettas and po’boys, beignets and pralines.
