The only bad part of the food portion was the first stop…the gumbo was too spicy. The guide was very knowledgeable about NOLA history, only issue with him…he talked too much. For some, that wouldn’t be a problem…but for me it was excessive. All told, I would recommend this tour to others.

This tour was amazing and well worth the money. All of the food was delicious and the drinks were amazing! Ben was our tour guide and he did an awesome job- he knew the history behind the food and was interesting to listen to but still gave us time to talk with other people on the tour and make new friends. Overall would do again and will recommend to friends.
