This food tour was absolutely incredible. HIGHLY recommend to anyone interested in getting a taste of a broad range of traditional New Orleans food. Also great "bang-for-your-buck." We got TONS of food, the most I've gotten on any food tour. Our tour guide was Milton and he was fantastic. I could have listened to him tell stories all day! If I am ever back in New Orleans I will be going on this tour again, thats how exceptional it was.
What a wonderful way to begin my visit to New Orleans. My guide was so much fun and incredibly knowledgeable. It’s a great idea to have a food tour at the beginning of your visit to become acquainted with some of the exceptional restaurants and cusine that you just know you’ll want more of. Couple that with tales of the amazing lore of the French Quarter and you know that booking this tour was a terrific idea. I highly recommend this experience!

The tour was ran by Destination Kitchen and was way more than we anticipated. Excellent tour guide by the name of Susan. Lots of food tasting stops and learned a lot about New Orleans as well. Highly recommended.
Our guide, Susan, made sure we tasted some of the best food in the Quarter and gave us so much history along with the food stops. It was a lovely and lively walk around the area - my only regret is that I didn't do this my first day or two in New Orleans so I could take in all the new places I learned about. Susan was very informative and was fun to be with. Excellent tour, guide and food! Highly recommend this tour - and Susan!
