New Orleans: Combo Cocktail and Food History Tour

1. New Orleans: Combo Cocktail and Food History Tour

Begin your walking tour at the award-winning Red Fish Grill in the French Quarter neighborhood of New Orleans. Begin with alligator sausage and seafood gumbo, with freshly-baked French bread and homemade butter as you learn a bit about the colonial period of Louisiana’s history. Move four blocks down and enter Pepper Palace to discuss the Cajun influence and sample an unlimited variety of hot sauces, BBQ sauces, Buffalo Wings sauces, salsas, dry rubs, and more. Receive a free bottle of Louisiana-style hot sauce when shopping there.  Afterward, visit Leah’s Pralines, a 3rd generation family-owned candy store. Sample traditional pralines and their unique Bacon Pecan Brittle. Then, visit the iconic Napoleon House restaurant for two of their specialties — muffuletta sandwiches and a refreshing Pimm’s Cup cocktail. Arrive at the award-winning Dickie Brennan’s Tableau to sip your next cocktail: the French 75, a combo of fresh lemon, brandy or gin, and bubbles. After Tableau, visit the Creole Cookery for their slow-cooked red beans and rice. From there you pass through famous Jackson Square towards Café du Monde, then along the French Market area, ultimately landing at the James Beard Award-nominated Cane & Table. Sample their unique curry pork skins and a classic daiquiri.

New Orleans: French Quarter Secrets and Bourbon Street Tour

3. New Orleans: French Quarter Secrets and Bourbon Street Tour

Your tour begins on Bourbon Street where you’ll meet your local expert guide. Set off to learn how this area developed from a seedy slum into one of the preeminent pleasure districts in the United States. You will also swing into a bar to learn about (and enjoy too if you wish) one of the many cocktails created in the French Quarter, before pausing on Royal Street to see some of the best street musicians in America and learn about the creation of Jazz music. From there, your guide will take you to Jackson Square where you’ll see landmark buildings like the Pontalba apartments (the oldest continually-occupied apartments in America), the St. Louis Cathedral, and the Cabildo (where the Louisiana Purchase was signed). You will then step inside the Presbytere for a guided tour of the interior, including exhibits on Mardi Gras and Hurricane Katrina. You can’t visit New Orleans without a close encounter with the supernatural, so your next stop is one of the most haunted buildings in the city, where you will take a tour of its interior which includes the infamous seance room. Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, this is an experience not to be missed. After swinging through the old French Market and stopping at the best spot to take pictures of Jackson Square, you'll head down to the riverfront to watch the steamboats go up and down the mighty Mississippi River.

Ben was an amazing guide for our tour. We felt like we were visiting local favorites with an age old friend who knew the city like the back of his hand. We heard great stories of the history of New Orleans peppered with great humor while sipping cocktails and enjoying fantastic food. Other than the food, drinks, and stories, we really appreciated that most of the interactions, other than walking between locations, took place indoors with the AC and not outside in the July heat and humidity as several other tours we did during our trip were.

The food was absolutely wonderful! I definitely recommend doing this tour first if you've never had traditional New Orleans food or drinks. It's a walking tour and you get to experience several amazing places but make sure to come hungry and hydrated!

Nate is the absolute best tour guide I’ve ever had. So down to earth, friendly, and INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about everything NOLA. If possible, do yourself a favor and try to book him as your guide. Cannot say enough good things about this man.

Had a great time, really enjoyed the food and drinks, guide was great at keeping us moving yet giving time to enjoy the places we visited. Recommend.

Amazing guide, perfect way to get to learn some of the New Orleans experience!
