My cousins and I went on this tour and we had a great time. The guide and her family were an absolute pleasure to talk to. They were incredibly attentive and overall nice people. They made sure everyone had water before we left the first location and there were umbrellas with fans in them and if you wanted, you could also activate the mist to cool down while walking. Not everyone used an umbrella but I did and it helped take the edge off. The donuts and beignets from all of the locations were delicious and definitely spots I would return to. Listen to your guide(s) when they say you will get full and to share when possible! By the time we got to the last spot, I was stuffed and could only eat half the beignet but it was so worth it. I highly recommend this tour!

Our tour guide was super cool and friendly! She gave us great advice about the attractions in NOLA and told us all about beignets & donuts. Loved the little gifts she gave at the end :) Would def recommend to anyone in town looking for a walking tour + good food!
