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.

    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

    We loved this walking food tour of New Orleans. It was just what we were looking for to get a taste of the city! I did a lot of research on the different tours (so many options) and was so pleased with my choice - and it was definitely because of our guide Neil! Neil did a fabulous job of weaving in local history and the unique culture of New Orleans into understanding the food we sampled. And on my, it was so much great food! I would highly recommend this tour esp if you can score being in a group led by Neil!

    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 so much fun on this tour! Kim was our guide and she’s sweet as can be and took the best care of us. The donuts were a treat and this tour is a great way to try a little bit of everything. Thank you Kim!

    The tour is definitely worth your time and money. I’m a very picky eater and loved all of the food. The tour guide (Kaffey) was engaging and interesting. It was a wonderful afternoon.

    We booked this tour in the afternoon after a 3 hour van tour of the greater New Orleans area. We wanted a more up and close tour of the French Quarter We wanted to taste the food and figured having someone give us the history behind the foods; ingredients, culture, variations etc. would give us a deeper understanding of New Orleans food. We were not disappointed! Our guide, Kim, was outstanding. With 30 plus years of food experience, 20 of which was in New Orleans, and having worked for some of the great culinary names in New Orleans, Kim was able to give us the history and stories behind the mystique. We sampled Po-boys, Jambalaya, Pralines, Gumbo, Red Beans and Rice all in about 2.5 hours while enjoying a cocktail along the way. It was well worth the money, thank you Kim...

    Great tour guide, wonderful food! Learned a lot about the food traditions of Nola. We hit all of the "greats:" red beans, gumbo, oysters, pralines, and po boys.

    The guide was good. I was expecting more food. The food came in dipping sauce cups, so it is only a sample.

    Lyndel was fantastic. We loved the local color, history and tidbits as much as the food and it was great.

    Do not eat before this tour and you will not need to afterward.

    We, my husband and two adult daughters and I, spent most of a day with Kelly exploring the New Orleans food scene. Kelly was a wonderful guide and we learned much about New Orleans culture, the music scene, and Mardi Gras. Who knew you had to dodge carved coconuts thrown from floats during Mardi Gras? Kelly told great stories about New Orleans and gave us suggestions for restaurants to try on our own. She took us to places we would never have thought to walk into and the food was wonderful. Grilled oysters, warm muffaletta, praline stuffed beignets, gumbo, sausages, beans and rice, and the list goes on. The tour was proof that you can find good food anywhere in New Orleans, no need to stick to the big name restaurants. We had fun wandering around with Kelly in the rain, she always had a smile and a wonderful laugh. This was a very special tour.

    A fantastic company! Great customer support from beginning to end. As a NOLA local, our pilot, Ian was a consummate professional. He was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I would recommend this company unreservedly.
