Fantastic foodie tour of the Garden Districr - Bobbie and Margie were fantastic guides and hosts at our 4 stops. Each stop had a different variation of beignets or donuts, and the tour was well orchestrated to time our stops, walk off some calories, and learn a lot about New Orleans history and culture. This tour definitely exceeded our expectations.

Delicious - If you like beignets definitely worth it. Not much else to say I just have to pad this dumb thing because TripAdvisor won’t let me submit it otherwise lol

Loved doing something different! - Mike was a great dessert tour guide! He gave us some Nola history and talked about the different communities. We really enjoyed getting to try different types of donuts and beignets. The other people we toured with were super friendly too. We were able to get pics taken in front of the mural. That’s really nice when you’re traveling with your SO.

Great NOLA experience! - Our tour started with a personal text the day before, much appreciated in a world of auto reminders. Bobbie gave us a great tour with lots of delicious treats and some history of the city mixed in. She also related beautifully with my children, ages 6 and 8. Highly recommend!

Delicious, Fun, Enjoyable Way to Spend a Morning - We throughly enjoyed this walking donut tour in the Garden District/Irish. The assorted donuts and beignets were delicious, with more flavors than we anticipated. Thomas was an utterly delightful guide, blending culinary knowledge, local history, and irreverent humor in his narrative. Whether he was giving us background on our delectable sweets, or making us laugh or think about the local sights, he was as much fun as the food!

Great donuts, best conversations - Bobby was the best! We were lucky enough to have the tour to just our little group, so we had a lot of fun conversation and learned a lot. We especially appreciated the historical lessons tossed in with the donuts and how Bobby didn't shy away from some of the early colonization of New Orleans so we could learn the full picture! The donuts of course were amazing, too. Highly recommend!

Fun team activity with delicious treats and fantastic guides - Our whole team (20 colleagues) had a wonderful adventure with Bobbie and crew. She was fun, informative, delightful and a wonderful host. The food is great and the experience even better. The beignets at the first stop - PJ's - were the best I've ever had. Thank you for such a great team activity!

Sweet Deal - Thomas, our tour guide, was incredible! He knew a ton about not only donuts, but also the history and architecture of New Orleans. Come for the donuts; stay for the rest.
