Great food tour in the Garden district! - Our group of 5, was fun! Our guide was BJ - very prompt, gave us great insight into the history and culture of New Orleans and his restaurant choices in the Garden District were superb! We liked the less crowded streets and big easy feel of the Garden district. We had the perfect amount of portions too!

Book this tour - Every part of this tour was great. It was a lot of food, but the portions were just the right size. Our guide, Mark, had the pacing between locations down perfect so we weren't stuffed and uncomfortable by the end. We've been on several tours in various places, and guides often just go through the motions. Mark clearly has a passion for food and his city. His love for NOLA is front and center, and it makes the tour so much better. He's so enthusiastic, and there wasn't a dull moment. Definitely recommend.

Best New Orleans Food tour - We loved every minute of this tour; best thing we did in New Orleans! Our guide was super knowledgeable and interesting. The food was absolutely delicious and plenty of it (I wish I had eaten less at breakfast!). The stroll through the Garden District was very enjoyable with lots to see.

Intro to New Orleans Cuisine - Excellent selection of local foods with recommendations for drink pairing! Ty had a broad knowledge of New Orleans culture and history. Make sure you don’t eat before you go because there is a lot of food.

Ty was fantastic. So knowledgeable! - We did this tour first and then signed up to do two more tours through NO Secrets. Ty was our guide for this one and the French Quarter tour and he was awesome. Both were very small, allowing him to spend lots of time answering all of our questions. He was extremely knowledgeable and knew all kinds of obscure little bits of NOLA info. He had clearly researched and studied the subject matter and knew it inside out. In addition, he was pleasant and personable. He told stories like an actor, with voices and character. It was a very enjoyable and educational experience and we walked away knowing WAY more about New Orleans than we did when we arrived.

Host and Choice of food!! - Our tour guide was amazing!!! Plus the food choice he chose and locations were superior! Starting from the service to the hospitality it was overwhelming! And the portions were very NICE size this is what made this food tour stand out way better than the other 3 we took as a group while in NOLA. We are picky as a group and this tour with this company and the host is a MUST if you are traveling from out of state to NOLA this is a MUST!!!! 1. The host BJ 2. Choice of food and he knew the history and ingredients behind each meal. 3. Portion was GREAT! 4. Location of each stop! The service for each was great. The weather was great for the walk not hot nor rainy. Just perfect weather!
