The Best Food Walking Tours
in New Orleans since 2010

Anthony Bourdain was once asked to name the one U.S. city where people should experience food:

There is no place like New Orleans. So it’s a must-see city because there’s no explaining it, no describing it. You can’t compare it to anything. So, far and away, New Orleans.” Anthony Bourdain. 

You will experience New Orleans food on a three hour Tastebud Tour. Get ready to See it! Smell it! Hear it! Feel it! and TASTE it! An unforgettable Food experience, Taste Dat!

More than just a great food tour!

My favorite part of the tour (other than the food) was our friendly and knowledgeable guide! It was also great that it was also a history tour with information on the locations we visited and the surrounding establishments, monuments, and sites!

Leap year tour was awesome!

My wife and I took this tour on leap year. Can not say enough about this fun event. Great food at local restaurants. The best part is our guide Richards knowledge of the history behind each stop. Very enjoyable night. Highly recommend this tour!

Great time for all!

After many trips to New Orleans just 'winging it,' we decided to book a food tour. What a great decision that turned out to be! We followed Tish all over the French Quarter where she introduced us to wonderful foods and shared the history of the foods and architecture of the Quarter. I can't say enough great things about the tour and history lessons! We plan to book a tour the next time we come as well. Thanks Tish!

Well worth the time and money.

We have taken food tours in many cities in Asia, Europe and in the US, and all 6 of us felt this was near the top. The food was very generous and good and the atmosphere was fun. Jeannine Chance was wonderful---funny, informative and proud of her city! We didn't mind the substitute muffuletta location in the Food Court, as she made it clear why we were there. Also, we all felt it was probably an authentic kind of place to eat that delicious sandwich!

Local posing as a “tourist” for a day

Very engaging. The 3 hrs flew by. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and authentic. I’m from New Orleans and I’ve never taken any of the tours so this was a first for me. I learned some things I didn’t know and I’d never been to any of the restaurants that were included in the tour. Great for tourists who want to sample local cuisine and don’t know where to go/ don’t want to stray too far from the quarter.

Good evening tour with great bites

We booked this tour as a way to experience many New Orleans flavors in a short amount of time. We appreciated the bits of history and interesting storied about each of the visited spots. The food was good and it was plenty for a small dinner. We would use this company again.

Great Tour

The History and Food Sunset Tour was nothing short of fantastic. Our guide was knowledgeable, very friendly and professional. The food was great and all the stops were located in lively areas of the French Quarter. I would highly recommend this experience!

Dinner with Tish

Enjoyed the French Quarter food tour with Tish. She had great history, not just about the food, but about everything. Would recommend to anyone.

Our Food and History Tour

Our tour was a splendid experience. Our guide, Richard, was so polite, respectful and so knowledgeable. His injection of facts and unknown tidbits of the city’s history was fun and engaged our curiosity. All the stops gave us yummy food and a piece of NOLA.

5 Star tour/5 Star Guide!

This was an absolutely wonderful way to experience some of New Orleans favorite cuisine. The food was excellent but the tour guide made the experience so much more flavorful. Richard knows so much about the history of New Orleans and about all the restaurants that are on the tour. His narrative and knowledge show his love for the city of New Orleans! It is a wonderful way to experience the culture, cuisine and history of a magical city. It’s a must “to do” when coming to New Orleans!

Great food and great guide

I’ve now been on 3 French quarter food tours and this one was my favorite! Richard was a great guide, the food was great and there was so much of it! I think this tour provided more food than others I’ve done. Definitely recommend
