Truly enjoyed this tour! Beth has the best personality for a guide. Learned lots of interesting history about NO, the families who created the cuisine here and their restaurants. We didn’t stay at one place too long. Just right. Going back to SoBou for another cup of gumbo tonight!

A good review of food and a very entertaining presentation of the cuisine you were sampling. Walking was not too onerous and length of stay a locations and portions were adequate. "Doc" has a great presentation style and a wealth of information. A great value and fun experience.

Doctor Gumbo’s tour was exceptional!! His ability to connect the different diasporas with the food and the history was enlightening. He clearly loves this city and it showed!! His choice of restaurants and vendors were genius. He helped things come together and make sense. The food he chose was all good and was worth every moment. We left feeling that we gained so much more than just food. He made the whole tour an experience to remember. I have been to New Orleans a few times and this was in my top 3 of things to do! Great tour and person. His heart for the history, food, and the Crescent City shine through...
