When in New Orleans, just book this food walking tour...! Laurent, as a retired chef, was so knowledgeable food and explained us the history, culture, and recipe of the food we ate :) Laurent is like one of those super friendly neighbor you'll meet! We miss Laurent so much and will do this walking tour again with him next time we come back to New Orleans.
Also, the food... I mean they were all great. We went to some popular restaurants like Luke and Domenica and were honestly pretty disappointed by gumbo and oysters. BUT, the gumbo, oyster, and jambalaya we ate at this tour completely changed our perception about gumbo, oyster, and jambalaya because they were GOOD! The cookies we were given were also very very delicious 😊 I also like how we get to try small portions of many.

100% recommend Laurent and this food walking tour guide to anyone in New Orleans!

First taste of NOLA
We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour and the tasty stops we made. Our guide, Laurent, is a retired gourmet chef from here in New Orleans, and he shared lots of local historical details as we walked - along with descriptions of the foods we were sampling. For first-timers to the city, it was great info and some good new foods to try. We would recommend this tour to those who want to experience a little taste of New Orleans' cuisine.

Very accomodating
Kristy was our tour guide. I needed to connect with them before our tour and they were quick to respond by email. I am a vegetarian in a meat eating city and they made sure I had things to eat. Not only do you get a food sampling but you also get a history of the French Quarter.

Okay if it is your first visit to NOLA
The guide Jack was great and informative. Good history lesson as well as excellent descriptions of the difference between Creole and Cajun foods. Introduced the various samplings well.

The disappointment was in the quality and quantity of the food received. Recognizing that Central Grocery was closed due to Hurricane Ida but food tours in San Francisco and New York, Seattle, San Diego and even Palm Desert all featured more restaurants and better food than this experience. It seemed very touristy and in conjunction with the high price I obviously expected too much. If you accept it for what it is then you won’t be disappointed.
