What To Expect From This Tour

Culinary Experiences

  • Local Beverages: New Orleans is a city that is proud of its background, and with good reason. Food and drinks are a huge part of that history, which is why so many local establishments still pride themselves on serving cocktails that have their origins far back in the city’s roots. We’ve found the best of the best when it comes to cocktails, and can’t wait to share them with you.
  • Food Pairings: As much as we are here to sip the history, we haven’t neglected the food! Our tour guides are locals who truly love the New Orleans food scene, so they are able to recommend appetizers and meals at every stop along the way. From traditional offerings to exciting and innovative new developments, there are a ton of food options that will be presented to you throughout the tour.

Social Interaction

  • Joy of Groups: We know it can be intimidating to step into a group of people, but we also know something else — the power of food and drink to bring people together. When you join a Sip The History tour, you’re joining other travelers like yourself who are interested in the history and flavors that the city has to offer. You’ll enjoy making new friends and getting to know them as you make toasts and learn all about the amazing city you’re in!

Unique Venues

  • Exclusive Spots: Now, let’s talk about the places you’ll go. Ever wondered what’s behind the doors of that ancient brewery or how the inside of a historic distillery looks? Some spots in the city aren’t just open for a casual stroll in. But with us, you’re getting the golden ticket to sneak a peek into places that are usually just a mystery. It’s like having VIP access to the city’s hidden gems, from the cozy nooks of age-old taverns to the grandeur of landmark buildings—all handpicked for their stories and the vibes they offer.
  • Varied Locations: No two spots on our tour are the same. One moment you’re sipping a craft beer in a tavern where revolutionaries might have plotted, and the next, you’re standing in awe in a historical site where history was literally made. The variety is dazzling—each location is chosen not just for its historical significance but for the unique atmosphere it brings to your journey.
