Ben was a great guide and gave us tons of information. This was a great way to sample the local cuisine without the hassle of finding everything and the wait to get in everywhere. Lots of information about the history of the cuisine and the venues were comfortable. The experience was so great.

Ben, our guide, was fantastic. He was quite knowledgeable of the history of New Orleans including the foods and drinks and how they originated. Everything tasted great. Our group was small, which was nice and allowed everyone to get acquainted and joke around. I would definitely recommend this tour as well as revisiting the establishments we went to food both food and drinks.

By far my favorite experience from visiting New Orleans. DO IT! You get to experience generous sized samples of food from some of the greatest restaurants in the area, learn about the food and the area from a super knowledgeable guide, AND get 4 full sized delicious drinks. The food & drinks were such high quality. It was such an amazing experience. Everyone was nice to our group, and our guide (Nate) was WONDERFUL. He’s lived in the area for a very long time and knows it all. He knew so much about the food & history of the area but made it very interesting. He also made it clear that we could ask him any questions at all about New Orleans while also being more than happy to take pictures of us when we asked. He gave us honest opinions of places we wanted to visit during our trip and gave great recommendations for what we should prioritize and do while there. It felt like we had an old friend from the area showing us around and getting us into restaurants for a VIP experience. Seriously so cool. You can’t go to New Orleans and not do this tour! You also more than get your money’s worth!
