We had a good time on this food tour. Our guides (one was in training) knew lots about the area. They took the tour slowly enough that we didn't feel overly stuffed and uncomfortable at the end. Our jambalaya stop was especially great for me, since I'd had jambalaya I didn't like and thought I didn't like the stuff at all. This version was good!

Awesome experience! We visited 4 different restaurants and sampled many tastes of New Orleans. Boudin balls, Beef PoBoy, Muffuletta, Gumbo, Jambalaya and Pralines. The portions were large and very fulfilling. Tish guided us through the French Quarter with a historical and personal perspective. Great way to explore the French Market and cuisine!

The guide was very good and the history she shared was wonderful. However, for a Bourbon St. food tour, we were very disappointed there wasn't a taste of seafood...no shrimp, crawfish, oysters, etc. The chicken and sausage in the gumbo and creole were tasty, as was the po boys and moffeletto....just missed tasting any seafood.

Hi Lloyd, Thankyou for your reviewed, I puzzled as the owner of a small business I like feedback, Nowhere does Tastebud Tours Promise you any SEAFOOD on the Flavors Tour lets make that clear had I promise you Seafood that is another story. Additionally we are not a Bourbon street Food tour, we are a French Quarter Food tour that has over 1500 five star reviews. Please give me a Call at 219 929 6648 to discuss how you can Book the Original and only Seafood Tour.. Thanks, Lynn
