Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What a great group activity! This entertaining, organized, & chilling tour was a great was to learn some history, get spooked, have some street cocktails, and wander around the mysterious city of Nola! Scott, our tour guide, was fantastic. So knowledgeable, animated, and resourceful. His storytelling abilities were off the charts! Would definitely recommend if you’re into true crime and disturbing historical facts.

    Our tour was awesome! Harris was very nice, on time, and made everyone feel like family. He was very informative and took his time to explain the history behind everything we saw. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone that’s interested!

    This tour was absolutely fantastic. We took another reviewer's advice to do the tour on the first night of our trip, and that worked out so well - we ended up going back to two of the restaurants on the tour. Craig was a great tour guide; he gave us a lot of history at each stop, and there were stops in between to point out interesting features or buildings. There were 10 people on the tour, and that seemed like a really great number. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting New Orleans, especially if it's the first time. We found a lot of great restaurants, and I felt that we got a great overview of the city's history.

    My only complaint was that the time between the tour starting and the first stop was a little long - it would have been better to get to the first stop and then talk a bit more. The meeting point was in a market that had already closed for the day, so it was starting to get a little sketchy - I would have preferred to move away from there sooner than we did.

    Let’s start this with our tour guide. Nathan was extremely knowledgeable of the history of New Orleans and the drinks and dishes we had along the way.
    The food and cocktails were all amazing! You will not leave the tour hungry for sure

    This was a fantastic tour! The plantation is very beautiful and on the cloudy day we had, it was a great atmosphere for photos. I was a tiny bit upset that I couldn't take pictures inside the house, but I completely understand why. It's more important to preserve the history than it is for me to have pictures I most likely won't look at many times. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions and listen as some guests (my aunt included) told their own stories. There was plenty of time to see everything and grab a bite to eat before we went on.

    The swamp tour was absolutely fantastic! The guide was very knowledgeable and hilarious and always made sure to stop whenever anyone pointed out a gator. He also has a baby gator you can hold and he is so cute! Though they normally hibernate in January, we were able to see many gators out sunbathing since it was sunny and 80° F. I misunderstood part of the tour: I thought we would get out and explore a fishing village, but you see it from the boat.

    I highly recommend this tour!

    We took the tour as a family group of 4 in late December, and it was one of the trip highlights.

    The Good.

    1. The tour guide was fantastic though I have forgotten her name. Funny, informative and keen to include everyone in the group. She was passionate about the City and the food. Very friendly and had good relationships with each of the restaurants

    2. The tour was an easy walk, and the pretrip information was excellent. The tour was in the French Quarter, and there were 4 stops and 5 tastings.

    3. We had Gumbo, beignets, poboys, as well as rice beans and rice with sausage. All were excellent and in each of the restaurants the service was pretty good. The beignets along the Mississippi were my highlight. Overall, I think smaller portions would have been OK as we were all full at the end.

    4. The overall value was excellent and the food plentiful and high quality

    The Bad

    Nothing really but you did have to pay for cocktails at each location. Although all were good, having 1 included in the price might be worth thinking about.

    Overall

    A highlight of our NOLA trip and highly recommended.

    Terrific food tour with an excellent, personable, and entertaining guide, Mike. The sort of food listed is not something in my wheelhouse, but everything was very good to excellent, especially the gumbo. A fair amount of walking with stops for a bit of local color/history. Mike also gives hints and tips on other places to enjoy while you're in town.
    Tour started at 1, ended at 4. We walked around quite a while after and now, 6pm, we are too full for dinner. No regrets on this tour!

    We had an amazing tour with Adelaide (blue hair). We were traveling with our young children and she was accommodating, keeping the tour kid friendly. She even gave recommendations for other places to eat at and do during our trip.

    My husband and I loved our Frenchman Street Pub Crawl experience! Pandi, our tour guide, was phenomenal. She is friends with many of the bands and even got on stage to sing a song or two. We also got to watch one of the Mardi Gra parades from a bar balcony. The music was fabulous, the venues unique, and the drinks delicious. 10/10 would do again!

    We had an excellent tour with James. He met us promptly at Gracious Bakery and walked us through the Garden District. It was a very entertaining two hours with lots of stories about past and present residents as well as commentary about the history of New Orleans and the architecture of the District. Although the Lafayette Cemetery is closed to visitors, we spent a good amount of time at one of the side entrances where we could see in and James explained all about the cemeteries of New Orleans, complete with pictures and maps to complete the picture for us. We can highly recommend Lucky Beans tours for the Garden District.
