I recently had an amazing food tasting tour in the New Orleans French Quarter that exceeded all my expectations. This tour not only offered a variety of small portions of delicious food but also provided insightful information about the city's food history and highlighted historic sites. It was a perfect combination of culinary delights and cultural exploration, leaving me with a deeper appreciation for the unique flavors and rich heritage of New Orleans.

My husband and I loved the tour. Mike was an EXCELLENT tour guide. He was so knowledgeable about New Orleans history and its food! This is our first time in New Orleans and we were introduced to all of the cuisine that NOLA is famous for: Gumbo, Pralines, Po Boys, and Bananas Foster Bread Pudding! We highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to be with - great personality that made everyone feel welcome and ready for an exciting food adventure. We ended the tour having had plenty to eat, with bellies very full! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour!

All the history of New Orleans and restaurants & places suggestions to visit.
