Ben is awesome. - We had a great time. Ben our tour guide was knowledgeable and entertaining with his history of New Orleans and the dishes/cocktails we tried. He moved the tour along with ease and skill while also encouraging conversation among group members so you met new people from all over also enjoying their vacation. We would recommend this experience in a heartbeat.

Worth a try for a first timer to New Orleans - Ben was informative, patient, approachable and an all around great guide. The stops were good. Would have been fine without the candy shop and hot sauce shop. The 3 restaurants were fun to go to and the food was decent.

Exceeded my expectations of a Food & Drink Tour! - The tour was incredible! I have never done a food & drink tour before. This tour exceeded my expectations. My friend & I joined the tour of 12, all became fast friends and Dr. Gumbo made us all feel welcome. The portion sizes were impressive, the drinks were spot on! Dr. Gumbo's knowledge of the food, drinks, culture & history of New Orleans was impressive. I highly recommend this tour!
