Great food and cocktail tour - We had an amazing experience on this tour with Ben as our tour guide. It was the first tour of our trip and I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a taste of some New Orleans classic food/ cocktails. I had read some other reviews that said the portions were small and I’m so glad that didn’t deter us because we did not find in our experience. We got full sized cocktails and found the amount of food plenty. We started at Red Fish Grill where we got a hurricane and small bowl of gumbo- both delicious. We then went to a hot sauce shop called pepper palace where you could taste at your leisure and received a full size seasoning bottle and praline shop for some sweet treats which was a nice break between more cocktails. We also visited the Napoleon house which was great to do on the tour because they don’t take reservations and can have a line to get in. The quarter size muffuletta was the largest “sample” sandwich I’ve had. We went to a few other places for cocktails/ bites but those were the highlights. We also got to go on the balcony of a few of the places which added to our experience. Make sure you wear comfortable clothes and shoes for walking in the hot weather and drink plenty of water (they do give you water at most of the stops too). The stops all had a pretty casual vibe. We found it worth it as there was no way in our trip we could try all the restaurants on our list but got a great taste of New Orleans. We had an awesome group and great tour guide that everyone had a good time.

New Orleans Cocktails and Food Tour - We come down to New Orleans to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Booked this food tour as it had good reviews. It did not disappoint. Plenty of good food and drinks with a little hot sauce. Ben was our guide and did a great job informing us on New Orleans cuisine. Also helped get my wife’s glasses off a ledge at Napoleon’s Restaurant. Thanks, Ben!

A "not-to-miss" tour in New Orleans! - A wonderful and fun tour. Ben was so upbeat, friendly and knowledgeable. The foods and drinks we had were good sized portions, not to mention delicious. In fact, we went back to one of the restaurants two more times for dinners. This is a must do tour to take while in New Orleans. Thanks, Ben, for a great time!!

After it w ded he even shared a list of personal favorite spots he enjoys and recommends, very happy I took this tour!
