Lisa is an incredible historian and she makes this tour super informative as well as tons of fun. Her New Orleans rhetoric and accent along with the walking and tasting the cuisine unique toNew Orleans makes this tour completely worth it. I left full and happy and filled with new ideas of what else to do and see.

On the tour you get to sample food from 5 different places in the French Quarter, walking to each location. You can order your own alcoholic drinks separately if you’d like. On your walk to each location you’ll also hear tidbits of history about the city. You can ask questions throughout the tour as well. Overall very enjoyable experience and highly recommend my tour guide, Lisa.

Awesome tour, got a little taste of all the famous foods from New Orleans... The tour was run well, we didn’t have to wait at any place, we walked right in and had a table waiting. Our guide Grace was fun and knowledgeable about the history of the food and the city. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone.
