What you'll do

Please note: itinerary may Change a due to COVID-
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.
To wake up your taste buds, we’ll indulge in New Orleans’ most iconic pastry. Just make sure you watch the direction of the wind or else you might find yourself covered in powdered, sugary goodness! 
We will also head to The French Market, the site of America’s oldest public market. We’ll be sure to stop for a local bite and get to know some of the personalities who call this city home. 
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 palate-pleasing spots. You’ll sample both a classic New Orleans dish, as well as a delicacy that you’ve probably never seen outside Cajun country. With a fertile eco-system within the bayou and a history of spice trading, you’ll begin to realize why everything here tastes so good. 
On this tour, you’ll have the chance to try a dish that sparks controversy amongst chefs and cooks in New Orleans: gumbo. Learn how hundreds of years of history has shaped this recipe and how it can vary from restaurant to restaurant. 
Finally, we will try a sweet treat made from locally grown ingredients and the region’s abundant harvest.

Where you'll be

We’ll experience NOLA like a local, tasting the food and flavors of small, mom and pop establishments that have made their mark on the city and its cuisine.
All of the stops have been selected to give you an authentic experience, like those of us who live here. We wont be stopping at any major attractions or locations, but instead diving in the Vieux Carré as if we’ve lived here all along.

Rated 4.91 out of 5 from 767 reviews.

So much fun!!! Holly was great. She took us to places we would’ve never tried and ordered things we would’ve never ordered. The food was awesome. And the storytelling from start to finish was an added bonus. Highly recommend!

Angela was the best guide ever and was very passionate about the food in NOLA and was very personable. I wasn’t uncomfortable at all and it felt like I was meeting up with friends to eat all the delicious food New Orleans has to offer. She even personalized it based on what we told her we were interested in. Definitely go on this tour, it’s more than worth the price!

Great experience with big portions! My husband and I enjoyed our tour guide, meeting new people, and of course partaking in some NOLA traditional foods. Big ole portions sizes did not disappoint and left us satisfied. Thanks, Angela!
